The Design

"Nestle into these little mitts."

The pretty practicality of our Welted Fingerless Gloves keeps pulling us back to this perennial favorite. They’re knit in the round, starting at the welted cuffs and moving on to a neat thumb gusset. Quick to make, these gloves are an easy and thoughtful gift—for yourself or for a friend!

These Welted Fingerless Gloves were knit with DK-weight Shibui Nest. At its core, this yarn has a soft wool-and-alpaca strand. This, in turn, is wrapped with thin, contrasting, criss-crossing strands of fine wool. The difference in tension between the inner and outer strands gives this yarn a wee wave. As a result, Nest creates a bouncy, squishy, soft fabric with an intriguing texture and marled look!

The Details

Women’s medium: 6½"/16cm around palm (for smaller hands, use smaller needles throughout).

1 skein Shibui Nest (175 yds/160m each); shown in color 2205 Caper.
Or approx. 100 yds/91m of an equivalent DK-weight yarn.

US 6 (4mm) double-point needles, or size to obtain gauge.
US 5 (3.75mm) double-points, or one size smaller than gauge size.
Optional: 6–10 small buttons.

Approx. 23 sts = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch.

Our thumb gusset is unique. Stick with it. We walk you through each round step by step, and think you'll find the thumb bind-off is quite neat and tidy. It might help to have someone read the directions out loud to you!

Pam points out that while buttons are optional, if you add them, you create a left and a right glove. Otherwise your gloves are reversible. Something to consider!
