Welted Fingerless Gloves - Dovestone DK Version

Welted Fingerless Gloves - Dovestone DK Version

“Pretty and practical.”

The pretty practicality of our Welted Fingerless Gloves keeps pulling us back to this perennial favorite. Wear them when knitting outdoors on a chilly day or while keyboarding with the thermostat down. Or layer them over your fine leather gloves when the temperature drops.

We found that Baa Ram Ewe's Dovestone DK knits up into the perfect pair of warm and woolly gloves. They’re nearly weightless—bouncy and soft, but with a substantial sense of ruggedness. And one skein with Dovestone’s ample yardage can yield two pairs! One for you and a matching set for a lucky loved one.

Pick up the pattern below and choose a lovely shade of Dovestone. For a full selection of colors, head over to the Dovestone DK page.

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

YARN
1 skein Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone DK (252 yds/230m each). Shown in Color Coal.
Or approx. 100 yds/91m of an equivalent DK-weight yarn. 1 skein is enough to make two pairs of gloves!

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

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

Some knitters have trouble with the thumb directions. It is a wordy patch, isn't it? Stick it out though, because the thumb bind-off is quite 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!
