Easy Beginners Knit Fingerless Gloves


These easy gauntlets, or fingerless gloves, are perfect for people just learning how to knit. There is even a matching hat and a matching scarf you can make from the same skein of Bernat Worsted yarn.

Yarn: Medium (4) worsted yarn. I used 1 skein Bernat Worsted color Mood Ring.

Size 9 needles.

Cast on 25.

Beginning at the fingers:

Row 1: *K1, P1*, K1.
Row 2: *P1, K1*, P1.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until length is 1 inch.

Pattern:

Knit every row until glove measures 6 inches in length.

Knit rows 1 and 2 until gloves measure 8 inches in length.

Finishing: Fold in half, sides touching, purl stitches facing out. Beginning at fingers edge, seam sides for 1 inch. Leave 2 inches unseamed for thumb. Sew remainder of seam and weave in ends. Turn right side out and you're done!
