Need a fingerless mitten pattern for children
Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for fingerless mittens for a child (he is eight years old). I have a pattern to fit adults, but not for children. I would like it to be in the round. Thanks!

Here are a few patterns I have recently searched, using circular needles or DPN needles.

The last one my daughter found today and said it is really easy! Good Luck and I hope my searching helps you...

This one is totally customizable -- for whatever hand size you want, with whatever yarn at whatever gauge...you just plug your measurements and gauge into the worksheet and voila!

Thank you Cleo, Julie & Brendajos. I checked out all of your suggestions.

Cleo - I have made the one that your daughter found and they were easy. They were my very first project on dpns! I've made quite a few pairs of them.

Brendajos - Have you made the "Knucks" pattern? It's really cool that it's made from the fingers down. I think I may give that one a go, since they have a child's pair.

Julie - I printed out all the info for the customizable ones. That is great to have.

I again thank all of you. I'll post a picture of them when I get them done. My SIL just asked me today if I would make up a pair for my nephew Joey who turned eight a month ago because his little hands get cold in the morning, so I'm going to give it a go, eventhough the "Knucks" pattern seems a little complicated. Hopefully I'll get through it okay. If I have any questions, I know I can come here to KH and get the answers I need! That is so awesome!

Have a good night!

Those look GREAT! Love the stitching! One question though ~ probably a dumb one, but here goes ~ when doing the fingers, do you put them on stitch holders until you have them all done and are reading to put them back on the needles? I've never made a glove with fingers before, so it's a little intimidating, but I want to be able to do this! Any tips you could give me would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

Brendajos ~ I love the quote from Mahatma Gandhi in your signature. I only pray that he was right. It's getting to be a very scary world that we live in now.

i love the quote too! :D

I put each of the fingers on waste yarn until i was done. I actually made all the fingers (except the index finger) before I started and marked them as to what they were. When i was ready to knit them up i took them off the waste yarn and put them on the needles like shown in the picture. I did mine on two circs because i would prefer it to DPNs whenever possible. I had never done fingered gloves either and I am terrible about following patterns because i have the attention span of a gnat! these were so super easy i would encourage anybody to do them! The hardest part for me was the stitching since i have never done any embroidery at all. you can dooooooooo eeeeeeeeet!

That's very encouraging! Thanks Brendajos. They look great and they were your first pair with fingers ~ wow! I'm impressed.

I'll keep you posted as to my progress and post a picture when I get done. I'll probably start them tomorrow. I have to go through my stash and make sure I've got the right yarn and needles ~ I think I do.

Thanks again for all your help. Have a great night.
