Welted Fingerless Gloves - June Cashmere DK Version

Welted Fingerless Gloves - June Cashmere DK Version

“Delicate, downy, perfectly insulating.”

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 a friend!

For this version of our Welted Gloves, we picked a particularly intrepid fiber—June Cashmere. It’s a 100% cashmere DK-weight yarn that hails from the high mountain pastures of Kyrgyzstan. There, nomadic shepherds comb the delicate, downy fibers from the undercoats of their goats. Evolved from withstanding frigid temperatures at soaring elevations, this cashmere is lightweight, oh, so soft, and perfectly insulating.

Pick up the pattern below and choose a lovely shade of June Cashmere DK. One skein is all you need.

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

YARN
1 skein June Cashmere DK (150 yds/137m each). Shown in Scarlet.
Or approx. 100 yds/91m of an equivalent DK-weight yarn.

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!
