I made these wonderful fingerless arm warmers for my dear friend Larkin.
If you know how to knit, here is the pattern and tutorial for these gloves.
I am using size 6 mm needles and corresponding (aran) weight yarn.
Cast on 28 stitches.
Follow this 2-row pattern until the ribbing measures 2 inches.
Row One (and all right rows) : K2 P2 (repeat till end)
Row Two (and all wrong rows) : K2 P2 (repeat till end)
Next, do the decrease row. The lace pattern needs only 25 stitches. We will decrease 3 sts evenly across the needles.
Decrease Row: k2tog, P2, K2, P2, k2tog, p2, k2, p2, k2tog, p2, k2, p2, k2, p2
Make sure you are on the RIGHT side of your piece to start the lace pattern.
Make sure you have only 25 stitches on your needle now.
Row 2: (AND ALL WRONG/EVEN ROWS) Purl all
Row 3: K2 (YO, K3) across to last 2 sts, YO, K2
Row 5: K2tog, YO, Slip 1, K1, PSSO, K1, K2tog * YO, Slip 1, K2tog, PSSO, YO, Slip 1, K1, PSSO, K1, K2tog (repeat from * across to last 2 stitches) YO, Slip 1, K1, PSSO.
Row 7: K1 *K2tog, YO, K1, YO, Slip 1, K1, PSSO, K1 (repeat from *)
Row 9: K2 (YO, K3) across to last 2 sts, YO K2
Row 11: K1 * K2tog, YO, Slip 1, K2 tog, PSSO, YO, Slip 1, K1, PSSO, K1 (repeat from *)
Row 12: Purl across
Repeat Rows 1-12 for lace pattern. I repeated this 2.5 times. You can make this as long as you want for as long as you want your arm warmers.
Increase row: K1fb, knit 8, k1fb, k8, k1fb, knit to end
R2: purl all
Row 1 (all front) : K2 P2 (repeat till end)
Row 2 (all back) : K2 P2 (repeat till end)
Now bind off.
Fold your piece "hot dog" style with the right side on the inside. Sew up the edge leaving a gap for your thumb.
So thats the tutorial! What do you think? These gloves are perfect for fall and super easy to make!
