So I have small hands and you may have seen this posted in the Whatcha Knittin section, but I figured I'd post it here too.

Behold my petite fingerless glove pattern! (scroll for picture)


Hand measurements :

circumference of hand excluding thumb: 6.5"
circumference of thumb: 2"
base of thumb to index finger: 1.5"

Gauge:

6 rows x 4.5 sts = 1 inch. adjust needles for guage.

Materials:

Bernat Denimstyle Yarn, US # 3 DPN (set of 4), stitch holder/scrap yarn, tapestry needle

Cast on 30 sts and join.

Work 3.5 inches in k2,p2 ribbing (the round will end with k2, so there will be 4 knit sts in a row)

Knit one round.

Thumb Gusset ( this will end up looking like it extended from the 4 k sts found in the k2,p2 ribbing):

p1, m1, k1, m1, p1, k to end of round

Knit one round

p1, inc, k1, inc, p1, k to end of round.

Knit one round.

p1, inc, k3, inc, p1, k to end of round.

Knit one round.

Continue increasing in this manner (working 2 sts betweem the increases on every 2nd round) until there are 9 sts between the purl sts.

Knit all knit sts and purl all purl sts as they appear for 5 rows.

Next Round: K to the first P st and purl the next stitch. Put the next 9 sts (the sts between the purl sts), onto a holder/scrap yarn, cast on one stitch, k to end of round.

Continue working rounds in stockinette st for 1.5 inches.

Fingers: *Tip* sometimes when picking up a stitch at the base of a previous finger, there are one or two holes on either side of the stitch. In this pattern it will probably be fine if you pick up two or 3 sts at the base. My fingers are pretty darn skinny, so one worked fine. Otherwise, you can take the tail left after adding in the new yarn for each finger, and weave it through the holes. That's what I did and it looks great.


First Finger:

Knit the first 4 sts. Slip all but the last 4 sts onto stitch holder. Cast on one st, knit last four sts. Divide these 9 sts onto 3 needles, or 2 if you prefer. Join and knit to end of round. Work 8 rounds in k1, p1 ribbing ending in k1 ( the first and last sts will be knit sts). Bind off in ribbing.

Second Finger: Knit first 4 sts. Slip all but the last 4 sts onto stitch holder. Cast on one st, knit last four sts. Pick up one stitch at base of previous finger. Divide these 10 sts onto 3 needles, or 2 if you prefer. Complete as for first finger.

Third Finger:

Knit first 4 sts. Slip all but the last 3 sts onto stitch holder. Cast on one st, knit last four sts. Pick up one stitch at base of previous finger. Divide these 9 sts onto 3 needles, or 2 if you prefer. Complete as for first finger.


Pinky finger: Slip last 7 sts from holder. pick up and knit 1 st at base of 3rd finger. Divide these 8 sts onto 3 needles, or 2 if you prefer. Complete as for first finger.

If you find a problem with this pattern, please let me know :) It's kinda still in beta testing.
