7 Free Knitting Patterns for Fingerless Gloves & Other Knitted Gloves
Gloves throughout the ages have been made of all sorts of materials; from the skin of deer, goats, or sheep, or from linen, silk, cotton, or wool. They have been cut and sewn, threadwoven, knotted and knitted. In addition to their primary functionality to protect, gloves became symbols of loyalty, honor, and integrity, as well as bonds of security. Today knit gloves are celebrated for their utility and style and often call upon the traditions of times past.

Comfortable Gardening Gloves
Uncommon Gardening Gloves by Donna Druchunas
Donna looked in vain for gardening gloves with a comfortable fit, so being the adventurous knitter she is, she tried knitting a pair for herself. She used a washable cotton yarn blended with stretchy elastic to make this glove knitting pattern perfectly suited for gardening. The easy-to-knit side gussets allow lots of room for flexing thumbs, and are quite the ingenious feature of this pattern.
Double Colors, Double Warmth
Two Color Norwegian Gloves by Nancy Bush
These gloves were inspired by a pair with similar patterning in the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, Iowa. Worked in the round, these gloves are made warmer with two layers of yarn, resulting from the intricate two-color patterning. Although the pattern and shaping makes this a bit more challenging project, the end result is work the effort.
Simple Fingerless Gloves Knitting
Motley Mitts by Lisa Shroyer
Lisa decided to celebrate the knit stitch with a simple knit fingerless gloves pattern. A chunky two-ply with very short color runs is worked in rows of stockinette, forming a subtle hourglass shape with short rows. This hourglass folds over the hand and wrist and is seamed up one side, creating a tailored fit. The short-rows in the pattern are very basic and easy to follow making this a good project for practicing this shaping technique.
Purple & Black Fingerless Gloves
Winter Twilight Mitts by Laura Rintala
This knit fingerless gloves pattern was inspired by a purple overcast sky showing through the black silhouettes of winter trees. Though she originally planned to knit two at a time, the tension didn’t work out, so instead they are worked up separately. Thankfully, the luxurious feel of the yarn made these gloves sheer indulgence to work separately.
Warm & Flexible Fingerless Gloves
Little Gems Mitts by Donna Kay
This really is a gem of a knitting pattern. The wool yarn will keep your hands warm while still giving you the freedom to move your fingers. Featuring beautiful jewel-tone yarns in eye-popping stranded colorwork, this fingerless knit gloves pattern is bound to become a favorite.
