Fingerless gloves are also called fingerless mittens, gauntlets or wrist warmers. They keep your hands and wrists warm and comfortable while you can carry on your regular activities with your fingers like driving. Knitting fingerless gloves does not require as much expertise as a fingered glove and are comparatively an easy project.
There are many patterns to knit fingerless gloves from the simple easy designs to the complex ones that can be knitted by advanced knitters. Such gloves are made with a set of four double pointed needles as they do not require any stitching. Sometimes two needles are used to knit gloves and then stitched at the edges. The length of the gloves could cover only the wrist and hands while some designs cover a part of the arms till the elbow. Designs can be the simple ribbed or moss stitch or a single cable or many cables running the length of the glove. A fingerless glove can have a delicate bell ruffle at the cuff with a couple of buttons to give a Victorian look. Lace patterns on the gloves give a fancy look to your hands. Multi colored stripes on the gloves in vibrant colors will add brightness. Reversible fingerless gloves can be knitted very easily. Attaching fur to the cuffs can give a furry feel.These knit fingerless gloves are meant to keep out the cold by snuggly fitting around the wrist and hands.
