pattern: little fingers

K has seen me knitting fingerless gloves probably her whole life, and finally this week asked me to make a pair for her. How could I say no?

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!

CO 36 stitches (using 4mm dpns)
knit 1×1 rib for 5cm
knit 1 round even

For thumb gusset:
k4, place marker (pm), m1, k1, m1, pm, k to end of round
k round
k4, slip marker (sm), m1, k3, m1, sm, k to end of round
k 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
Bind off

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!

  3. I love the little fingers on your little doll. Do you have a pattern to share for the legwarmers. I have a 5 year old granddaughter who is taking ballet and would love to make her a pair.

    • Sorry, Julie, but the pattern is a personal one and not written up. You might try Ravelry for other pattern suggestions. Thanks for visiting!
