Awful pattern. No guage, no quantity of yarn needed, it says knit rows where it should be purl. Basically a waste of time and effort.

I changed my needle sizes to 3.75 for the ribbing and then4 mm for the body. It makes for a smaller glove that fits better

I am up to the point where you place the last remaining 18 stitches on a second holding needle. (and yes I have several purl rows showing where the increases were). At this point my yarn is at the end of the needle where the 18 stitches are. How do I get to back to the thumb section to begin the "work the thumb"? Do I pull it out of the other end of the yarn ball? Or am I supposed to just take it around (rs or ws) to where thumb is and continue.???? I almost want to put the thumb on the holding needle and do the sides first.

Usually you would join a new ball and start knitting from where you are directed to in the pattern. The way the pattern is written you can't knit the sides first, in order for the pattern to turn out accordingly and for the thumb to be properly attached, you must work it first as directed in the pattern. Hope this helps.

why can't I print the 2 hr fingerless gloves. When I click on print the instructions disappear and page becomes blank. Anyone else have this issue?

Hi knotthemama, We just clicked through to the pattern PDF and have verified that the print function still works. Please click through to the pattern, right click on the PDF, and then select print. You should see a preview of the pattern page before you click OK. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Pattern is definitely wrong as someone said below - it's missing some purl rows otherwise wouldn't be stockinette stitch. I just switched some purl and knit rows and it was fine. Easy pattern.

how do I get the pattern?

Hi nkrumme 7172237, Please click on the green highlighted link, "Click here for knitting pattern." A PDF of the pattern will appear. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

The directions do NOT match the picture of the fingerless gloves. The picture clearly shows the glove to be knit in the stockinet stitch; however the directions would have a row showing purled stitches every time an increase was made.

Hi kinivan06 8826295, The picture we have shown is the picture that the designer has provided. We encourage you to upload your own picture of the finished product! Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I've just cast off the thumb stitch. I'm a beginner; not sure how to proceed from there. I know normally when you cast off, you cut the working yarn and pull it through, but I can't do that here because there's more work to finish up. How do I move on to the remaining work to finish it after having finished the thumb? Thank you!

you will cut the yarn and pull it throught just to finish the thumb. After you have completed the thumb, you go back to the stitches on the holding needle and put them back on the knitting needle and follow the directions for these stitches until they are cast off and repeat this for the second holding needle and sew accordingly to make up. you are basically ending in one part of the pattern and restarting the other two, this is so each necessary part is knit separately to be sewn together later. Hope this helps. Happy knitting.

I would like very much to knit these gloves, but I find that the pattern is missing some purl rows. Please make it more clear which rows are increase rows for the thumb and include a purl row. If you could lay it out row by row that would be great. Thanks, Suzy

Hi pdpictureshurst 1375264, We suggest contacting the designer of this pattern if you're having trouble. Thanks!

Hello! I love this pattern but it was a little big for my hands. What is the best way to make it smaller?

The best way to make this pattern smaller would be to go down in yarn weight by one and change the needles size to accommodate the change in yarn. hope this helps.

I hope my comment made it on here. I do not see it yet. It is about the part of the second holding needle. Do you knit those last 18 stitches before putting them on the holder or not. Since we do on the first 18 I assume we do but I want to be certain. Thank you, rita

No, those stitches are going straight to the holder without being worked. Hope this helps.

Just one question. The second part under the 5th decrease.after putting 18 stitches on a holder and Then knitting 14 more and leaving them on the needle do we knit the last 18 and put them on a second holding needle or just put them on without knitting them?? Thank you! I love this pattern so I want to be sure I finish it right!

No, you do not knit them-they go straight to the holder without being worked. Hope this helps.

What are the misprints on this pattern? Also, after binding off the thumb section, what do I do with the yarn? Cut it off? Also how do I pick up and knit the remainder of the stitches to finish the mitt?

There are no misprints in the pattern, it is all there and correct-I've made dozens of these. After you cast off, you continue with the pattern, after you cast off the thumb, you still have stitches being held on the other holder, just continue with the pattern as instructed.

I can't get the pattern to come up I would like to make them Winnie

Click "Click here for knitting pattern," and a PDF with the pattern should open in a new browser window. We just tested the link and it is working correctly. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Thank you .Its just what I need for our cold Winter here in SA. special for computer. Gayle

This quick pattern would make a great last-minute gift.

you generally do not cut the yarn unless the pattern states to. using several holding needles means that while on stitches are on a holder you will be using the others, so you wouldn't cut the yarn until the first cast off. hope this helps.

Even taking into consideration the minor misprints on the pattern, this is an awesome pattern that even a beginner knitter can make. :)..I have made over 6 pair of these and have not had to change a thing.

Do you actually have to cut the yarn to pick up the stitches from the holding needles? Can't wait to get started

Can't wait to get started. Do you cut the yarn before you work the yarn on the stitch holders?

Dear Onix Terevinto, please make corrections to this pattern. New knitters are having a hard time. The corrections would make this pattern an excellent one.

I ended up liking the stitch pattern and used it to bind off as well, If you want stockinette, just be sure to increase on the knit row and purl on the back side. The pattern actually works as in the picture, if you make sure to remain in stockinette when you are increasing. I think that is the error, but the pattern is also nice when you knit the purl row and come up with a raised stitch. It would make a nice place to contrast with another color for a striped effect. This size seems to work well for my hand. I wear a medium size woman's glove, for comparison. I have finished one and will duplicate it, errors and all, but for the next pair I will make the adjustments mentioned above.

Thanks for the corrections and comments. I thought it was me, but not realize that it is the pattern and found the changes helpful. I may adapt it further and actually the stitch that the pattern created is kind of interesting, but I too noticed that the picture is of stockinette. I will see if I can get by with what I have done. It was going great until I got to shaping the thumb. Bobbi

It really amazes me to come on here everyday and see so many people blame the shortcomings of their skills, their computers etc. for things not going their way. Enough already-All Free Knitting simply hosts the links to free patterns for people to use-it is not up to them to control Ravelry or make changes to someone else's creations-if you have issues or find errors, you should contact the creator directly-they are the ones that need to know there is a problem.

I said the comment was not very nice as all patterns are donated for free and no one is forcing you to knit them

I haven't knitted these gloves yet but I was wondering if all you knitters were aware of the fact that knitting needles are not sized the same way in every country, like clothes and shoes they vary in numbers Hope this can help Maureen

Does the millimeter size help? I know European needles are numbered differently than American, but I would think if the millimeter is known it would be easy to translate. No?

Hi Beachcoz Most of the needle conversion charts list all 3, there are many online. This one is set out well http://www.laughinghens.com/knitting-needle-sizes.asp Maureen

I've knitted for years but can't understand this pattern. When you follow it you are not doing a stockinette stitch as it is shows in the picture. You have a bump as there are two knit rows together? I gave up - sorry. t

This pattern needs major corrections. Good foundation, but it's taken me forever to get everything together the way it should be. Here's what I did differently. Cast on 28 stitches. K2P2 until piece is 3". (for me that was 15 rows) Next row is a knit row. I knitted one stitch, then did an increase on the next 2 stitches, knit until 3 stitches from end, stitch 2&3 from end I increased, and finished the row. Next: purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row. Knit 14 stitches, increase, k2, increase, knit to end of row. Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row. Knit 14 stitches, increase, k4, increase, knit to end of row. Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row. Knit 14 stitches, increase, k6, increase, knit to end of row. Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row. Knit 14 stitches, increase, k8, increase, knit to end. Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row. (Optional 5th increase. I have long hands, so I've done this.) Knit 14 stitches, increase, k10, increase, knit to end. Purl 1 row. Knit 14 stitches & put on a holding needle. Knit 12, leave them on the needle. Knit 14 and put on a second holding needle. Work thumb(center needle): Purl 1 row, knit 1 row, do 4 rows of k2p2 ribbing and bind off. Holding needle: purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row, k2p2 ribbing for 4 rows, bind off. Repeat for second holding needle. Good luck, all!

Thank you for putting the corrections in this pattern for those of us that struggle to begin with!!! I for one am grateful! Thank you a thousand times...

This coomment is for Kassanadra, who provided the corrections. Thank you for saving me hours of frustration and blaming myself for being too stupid to read a pattern. A generous thing to do.

why weren't the directions corrected???

That comment wasn't very nice!

"This comment wasn't very nice!!????" Exactly what was NOT nice about it? I'm glad you said something. I think Ravelry should insist that ALL patterns submitted should have been test knitted and errors corrected. I have spent hours trying to figure out what I was doing wrong only to find that the directions were incorrect. It's very frustrating. I don't think your comment was rude, or "not very nice". It was upfront and honest and I agree with you. Maybe the person who commented that your response "wasn't very nice" is just being touch today;-) Keep sending honest comments!!

This is a nice pattern and works well on #6 circular needles. You have to modify it a bit as once you finish the K2P2, then all of your other rows are knit rows until you get to the thumb. Someone posted above that there is a mistake in the pattern - and there is - you just have to remember if you are knitting on straight needles to knit a row, pearl a row. Once I figured out the mistake in the pattern, things went good.

Made one of these and it was way too big. Please suggest a smaller version. Thanx

These gloves are huge. For a smaller hand, cast on 26 stitches instead of 36. Then where it says "knit 18", knit 13 instead. The rest of the pattern can be followed with these substitutions. Also, only do 4 increases, not 5. And remember , in order not to get that ridge...you will need to change where it says "knit 1 row, purl 1 row, knit 1 row" - - it should instead be "purl 1 row, knit 1 row, purl 1 row." A lot of modifications needed. But I DO LOVE THIS PATTERN regardless.

why didn't you use smaller needles if they turned out big? so for a woman's size you think I should put 26 sts instead of 36? thanks.

My granddaughter loves these for riding. I knit both pairs at the same time on long needles until I got to the thumbs. It saves counting. I now have orders for more pairs. Thanks for posting.

Sorry did not read the first part of instructions. Found what I need.

In new version of 2 needle pattern does increase one still mean in front and back or YO method?

I would like to try the pattern, but do not know what is meant by a holding needle. Please explain. Thank you

I didn't know what that was either! So I just used another needle of the same size. You don't have to actually move the stitches onto a separate needle...just count on using four needles of the same size - - 2 for "holding" and 2 to work with. I used one metal set and one wooden set so I could tell which were which.

Thank you thank you thank you for posting this pattern! This is very similar to one I used to make years ago, but can't find my copy of the magazine and didn't want to go "by guess and by gosh" as I'm not the patient type. It is getting cold at night here, but my furnace has issues at the moment and it's not warm enough for a wood fire... so it was either knit some of these or give up my internet addiction to Ask.com! Thanks again!

The pattern as written above does not produce the picture shown. In the rows after the increases, it is written as knit one row, purl one row, knit one row, followed by knitting a row w/ increases. When knitted with those instructions, there is a ridge on the outside of the glove after every increase row. The rows following the increase row should be PURL one row, KNIT one row, PURL one row, followed by the knitted increase row. The double pointed instructions or the two needle instructions by lyndasings below are accurate.

Thanks for that reassurance, Julie Tena! I was hoping it would work for someone other than me!

You are totally right, it does leave a ridge. I like a ridge at the first knuckle but not repeatedly at each increase on the hand. Thanks for the workaround. I sorta figured it out as I went along but found myself having to rip out. Also, don't you find that the size of the glove is way too big for most women's hands? I had to take it down from 36 cast-on to a 26 or 28 cast-on to fit my hand, and then reconfigure the entire pattern from there.

very easy to make

OK, here's the definitive version! I would delete my previous version, but I don't know how! If anyone finds any problem with this one, I apologize! Two Hour Fingerless Gloves adapted for circular or double point needles Materials; worsted weight yarn 4 mm needles: 1 set of four (or one circular needle with very short cord) Do all increases by knitting into front and back of same stitch. Cast on 36 stitches. Divide onto three needles and join, being careful not to twist. Rows 1 to 18: work in k2 p2 ribbing. Row 19: k4, in next stitch increase 1, k 8, in next stitch increase 1, k8, in next stitch increase 1, k8, in next stitch increase 1, k 4. there are now 40 stitches. Row 20 (first increase, start of shaping thumb): knit 18 stitches onto one needle; in next stitch increase 1, k 2, in next stitch increase 1, and keep these 6 stitches on the second needle for the thumb; knit the remaining 18 stitches onto the third needle. Rows 21, 22, 23: Knit. Row 24: knit 18; in next stitch increase 1, k 4, in next stitch increase 1 (second increase, makes 8 stitches on second needle); knit 18. Rows 25, 26, 27: Knit. Row 28: Knit 18; in next stitch increase 1, k 6, in next stitch increase 1 (third increase, makes 10 stitches on second needle); knit 18. Row 29, 30, 31: Knit. Row 32: Knit 18; in next stitch increase 1, k 8, in next stitch increase 1 (fourth increase, total of 12 stitches on second needle); knit 18. Row 33, 34: Knit. Row 36: Knit 18 stitches and place on a stitch holder or a holding needle; knit 12 stitches and keep on the needle; transfer remaining 18 stitches onto another stitch holder. Divide the 12 stitches onto three needles and join. Continue with thumb: Row 40, 41: (working the thumb only) Knit. Row 42, 43, 44, 45: Work in k2 p2 ribbing. Bind off. Row 46: Return the 18 stitches on the first stitch holder to the needle. Join the yarn and knit across the 18 stitches, then knit across the 18 stitches from the other holder, dividing the stitches onto three needles. Row 47: Knit. Rows 48, 49, 50, 51: Work the four rows in k2 p2 ribbing and bind off. Turn inside out,. Thread the yarn tail at the thumb onto a yarn needle and weave the yarn down the thumb on the inside. There is likely to be a hole at the base of the thumb, and this is when you close it! Thread the other yarn tail onto a yarn needle and weave in on the inside. And you're done! No seams to sew!

I didn't have trouble until the thumb where it says to cast off. Do you cut the yarn then somehow join and continue knitting? or just bind off and continue. However if you keep on there will be a hole.

Yes, cut the yarn when you cast off the thumb, but leave a long enough tail that you can thread onto a needle when the rest of the glove is finished. Reattach the yarn to knit the stitches that were on the holder. I do this by making a loop that I knit together with the first stitch, always leaving long enough tails to permit sewing the hole together at the base of the thumb and then weaving in the tail on the back of the work. Hope this helps.

What about Rows 35 & 37?

Ooops - Rows 38 & 39 also

Row 35 Knit.

Row 37: Knit 18; k 18 Divide the stitches onto three needles. (12 12 12) Row 38 Knit. Rows 39, 40, 41, 42: Work the four rows in k2 p2 ribbing and bind off.

Well, I have finished a pair of the two hour fingerless gloves. It did not take two hours, it took my spare time for three days while over and over again I came across things in the pattern that just did not work! Many "froggings" and doings over. But I do now have a pair that works. For example, five increases for the thumb makes the glove too big, even with 4 increases it is a bit loose. 14 stitches for the thumb does not work in k2 p2 ribbing, which requires a multiple of 4 stitches. I am going to re-edit the pattern I posted below and will post it again when I am done!

Yes, please do post it! I found it all toooo large as well.

It took me waaaay longer than two hours. Less time of course when I cast on fewer stitches to fit my smaller hand.

I suggest copying the adapted patterns below onto a new text document. Then do a search for the word "Row" and add hard returns before the word "Row" so that each row is printed on a separate line of text. Easier to follow, and to check off when done. (When comments are uploaded onto the site they do not retain their careful formatting!)

I have tried to download this pattern but not successful. Is it possible for you to email it to me. This looks like the perfect pattern the way you put it together. I have been looking for a pattern like this. Thank you for your time in re-doing this pattern.

I too found the pattern confusing. It seems to work OK if every instruction "knit one row, purl one row, knit one row" is changed to "purl one row, knit one row, purl one row". If followed as written you end up with horizontal stripes of reverse stockinette stitch. It would help to have the rows numbered so the reader knows exactly what to do. I have not finished the first one yet, but I think I will definitely start over on double pointed needles-- seams are a waste of time when an item can easily be knitted without them! I don't think I have ever seen circular needles with a short enough cord for gloves, so it will be dp needles.

Im comfused!

Thank God, I thought I was going nuts trying to do the gloves and have the other one look alike, I had to make it up as I went along, sure do not look like the picture! Looks like most are having trouble. Virginianne

@mabrahams 0326193, I suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/AllFreeKnitting

how do you convert this to circular needles?

This pattern is terrible. The picture is really nice. But if I followed the pattern it would be a mess so I just winged it! Please proof before posting!!!

It doesn't make sense to me.. K row increase 4 sts,, "Purl 1 row, K another row Thumb increase Knit 18... ? If I just K a row before how can I K the next in Stockenett or do you add on the P rows. How many rows between each thumb addition? And are increases only in K rows

It should be purl a row, knit a row, purl a row after the increase row.

What kind of yarn would be good for this I'm a novie and I don't know for sure what kind to use.

Just printed this pattern it is the best... I love the large print ... Cant wait to start knitting...

Wanted to print the pattern for the two hour fingerless gloves and had a problem getting it to come up. Was really disappointed that I couldn't get the pattern. Looked like they would be fun to make.

love to make this pattern on a round needle with finer yarn. could you send me directions? I want to wear them to hide age spots and excema yet not be too warm. thank you so much. I am a revived knitter and learning all over again. God bless you

this is great even for beginners i am looking for these gloves with the finger tips cut off like the thumb just as easy to follow. i know i can follow other gloves but it is too hard is there any patterns out there, thank you nor

I have tried numerous times to get the pattern for th 2 hours fingerless gloves.....WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO THE GET THE PATTERN?

I finally finished a glove and did corrections from the pattern. At the end of each increase where it says knit 1 row then it goes into the next increase with knitting 18, I just didn't knit the row before each increase in the directions. Using # 6 needles instead of 9 really made alot of difference. Good luck to you all making these. They really come out very nice.

@rmetzke 3688980--I take it back, back, back! I am sorry. reading the pattern it made sense to me, knitting it, I knew what was meant, but it makes no sense if you have not knit a lot of mitten thumbs before. I apologize for my stupid response to you!--------From mittens I have done, thumb increases are every other row----she must mean that, but it is hard to know---you are absolutely, right.----also putting the thumb sts on a holder and knitting all of the other sts, back and forth, to the end (following the pattern) then coming back to the thumb sts and finishing the thumb, is pretty standard and saves you from an extra seam. again-I apologize! addie

@rmetzke 3688980 What are you talking about? You are going to scare off new knitters from a clear, easy pattern. See if this is clear? The pattern DOES say the first row is done in knit and to increase over this row, then to P the next row. If you do come across a pattern that is not clear... On single points, St st means k 1 row, p 1 row, k 1 row, p 1 row, etc. After the ribbing, the pattern is in St st, starting with a knit row (which is pretty typical). So... Finish rib then.. In St st, knit, increasing sts evenly, across row. Then, what is the 2nd row in St st? P, so purl the next row. I am just sayin'. addie

Are there any correntions that should be on the pattern other thsan using number 6 needles? Before the thumb increase should the knit row be the thumb increase? There shouldn't be TWO knit rows should there? I made the pattern with #9 needles and it was enormous. It's a nice pattern but someone should try and make it and put the corrections on the pattern. Thanks. Cillyn

I thought this would be an easy project, I didn't understand the directions.

I don't know why size 9 needles were used as the pattern calls for size 6. I made one mitt last night in record time. Although I don't like 2 seams, especially at the thumb. I may try making these on circular needles & put the thumb stitches on a holder & finish at the end. My comment on the instructions is I found the k1 row, p1 row, k1 row confusing after finishing a knitted increase row. Either this should read p1 row, k1 row, p1 row or clarified that the increase row is the first k1 row called for in the pattern. For the person asking how much yarn it takes, a 4 oz. skein is more than enough. I used a 6 oz. sport weight & probably only used 2 oz. or less.

The pattern says to use size 6 needles. Why would you use size 9?

Very nice fingerless gloves pattern! This is going to be my first time and I can't wait to get started! Thanks for this lovely pattern!

I made one of the gloves from this pattern. Size 9 needles makes this mitt that only a giant would wear. I changed to a size 7 and they are so large, I wish I could include the pictures I took of it. These are giantic. I would not recommend making these. I used worsted weight as suggested. What a waste of my time.

your pattern on these fingerless gloves looks great! Only one thing wrong it doesn't say how much wool you need to knit these? Can you please correct this so that when I buy some yarn I will know how much I need. Thanks, Susan

Very nice fingerless gloves! I will try this as my first fingerless gloves project. Thank you for the pattern! <3
