So I made a little fingers version for her, and thought I’d share in case there are other little ones that want a pair, too!
For thumb gusset:
k4, place marker (pm), m1, k1, m1, pm, k to end of round
k4, slip marker (sm), m1, k3, m1, sm, k to end of round
k4, place 5 stitches between the markers on scrap yarn (remove the markers), co1 stitch (I use the thumb cast-on method for this) and join round on the next stitch. K to the end of the round.
Continue st st pattern until piece measures 9cm from the cast-on edge.
k 1×1 rib for 4 rounds
Place the 5 stitches on the scrap yarn back onto one dpn, and pick up 6 additional stitches around the thumb hole spread evenly using 2 more dpns (11 stitches)
k 2 rounds
Bind off thumb.
Weave in all ends and work the second pair the same way.
Yarn: I used leftovers from these legwarmers which was knit with a gorgeous hand painted alpaca merino wool blend by Larkspar Funny Farm. It’s a heavy sport weight (10 wpi); approximately 25 grams (60 yards) to make a pair of little fingerless gloves.
My Ravelry notes are here.
Happy knitting, friends!
