Fingerless Fetled Gloves Knit Circular


This is the same two hour fingerless glove pattern that I knitted circular instead of straight on the knitting machine. Knitting circular was much easier and quicker. Well, I was ahead of the game until the ribbing near the fingers.  Since it was circular, I could not go into the ribbing. I had to do the ribbing and then connect it to the glove. Don’t like the look and I did not break the two hour time . I could have taken off and knitted on double pointed needles but I still would have lost time. What I would do next is knit more rows where rib is on finger area and then finish with a crochet edge of scallops maybe. I lightly felted them and I do like how they feel and fit.

Fingerless Gloves


I was supposed to be knitting on the passap but made a tension swatch and decided I did not like it. Meanwhile, I found this hand knitting pattern on Knitting Paradise for free. It is called Two Hour Fingerless Gloves by Onix Terevinto. I still don’t get it about fingerless gloves because it is my fingers that get cold! lol  In the pattern she knits on straight needles and tells you that you can do circular also. It is so easy to convert to machine. Not easy to do on machine! lol  It took about an hour and a half on the machine for both gloves. If you don’t have a garter bar, don’t bother trying. When I finished and sewed them up I did not like the fit or how they looked. I used TD 2 for a 2 by 1 rib and TD3. for the body of the glove. I decided if I made them again to go to TD3 but instead I would not do the 4 stitch increase on the first row. So I got to thinking that they were plain and I don’t like to do duplicate stitch. I decided to lightly felt them and do a needle felt design. OMG! They fit good and feel good.  Of course I was checking on them every two minutes to make sure they did not over felt. So I am happy with them and got to thinking that if I had knitted these in the round it would have been a breeze to do the thumb without moving all the stitches on either side.  DUH, so I will try again doing circular and I bet I can beat the two hour time to make them by hand. The second picture is the glove on my hand. It was hard to take a picture and hold the camera with my left hand. When I put them in my shop I will have hubby take picture.
