“Sampler 6” Fingerless Gloves

11 January 2008 at 3:26 pm (Original Designs, Projects and Plans, Show and Tell) (, , , , , , , )


I designed these gloves for two reasons: One, as a sampler of various stitch patterns that you can do on the round looms and Two, because I hadn’t seen any gloves done in the round, only flat panels that were seamed up.

I have a small hand and wrist, but I wanted to be able to wear these over my wrist braces. They stretch a fair bit. The pic below is NOT over braces. I also wanted the cuff to be loose so that it can go over a shirt sleeve or even the bottom of a coat sleeve as I hate how the wind can get in there! So this has a wider, gauntlet-like cuff then it narrows at the wrist. The whole pattern is a little roomy, if you want it tighter use the flat knit instead of the e-wrap.

Each set of stitches is done in 6 rows, hence the 6 in the name 🙂 The pattern goes as follows:

On the Knifty Knitter Round Blue Loom: 6 rows of garter stitch (e-wrap odd rows, purl even rows); 6 rows of e-wrap; 6 rows of K2P2 ribbing (knit two with the flat stitch, purl two, all the way around the loom), 6 rows of e-wrap, 6 rows of e-wrap as a flat panel (do not connect! turn around at the last peg and go back, this makes the hole for the thumb), 6 rows of garter stitch (as above), 6 rows of K2P2 ribbing (as above).

I’m sorry, but if you don’t know how to do any of the above steps, you need to look it up, I don’t have time to explain.

I used the horrible yarn that came with the Reader’s Digest loom set. Man, that stuff splits and frizzes badly. I probably won’t keep these gloves long as I don’t think the yarn will last!

Next I am going to make some fingerless gloves just in the K2P2 ribbing, which will be much tighter. I find K2P2 very tedious, but it does give a lot more “compression” than anything else I have tried thus far. I may do a sampler of various types of ribbing (K1P1, K3P1, etc.) to compare.

    I wish i could purl like you! My first six rows are kind of poofy and not right. I still love them though!
