Say hello to the Free The Fingers Knit Gloves Pattern, available for free here on my website. 

This is one of my favourite designs. I love creating designs that are simple to make, and yet are adorable and cute. 

Each glove is made flat, in one piece and then stitched along the side, remembering to leave a wee space for the thumb hole. This is a perfect first gloves pattern for knitting newbies, or for experienced knitters who are looking for something easy and quick to make. 

The pattern is in four different sizes - Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large, so perfect for everyone. I recommend highlighting the size you are making so you don't get confuddled. 

You can make and sell the gloves you make using this pattern, but please link back to my pattern. See my Terms & Conditions page for full details.

If you would like it to be longer simply add more knit and purl rows (between rows 15 and 41)

Stitching Together:

Fold the glove in half length ways. Make sure you are stitching on the wrong side so that the stitching doesn't show through. 

Place a stitch marker at the bottom of the glove to make sure it stays together while you are stitching. 

With darning needle in hand start stitching from the top of the glove. Stitch down approximately 5cm/2in and then put the glove over your hand to gauge where the thumb hole should be. If all seems well, secure the yarn and cut it off. If not, continue stitching until you reach the perfect spot and then secure the yarn and cut it off. 

Put the glove over your hand again and find the bottom of the thumb hole, making sure your thumb can comfortably pop through the space. Take the glove off and start stitching again from that spot to the bottom of the glove where you have left the stitch marker. Secure the yarn and cut it off. 

For the small glove I stopped stitching at 6cm/2.5in and restarted at 9am/3.5in from the top. 

Flip it inside out to the right side.

For the second glove make sure the thumb hole is in the same spot as the first glove by laying it against the first glove and measuring the two spots to stop and restart. 

And that's it. Congratulations, you did it. Your gloves are all done and ready to wear yourself, or they can be wrapped and given as a gift.
