8 Knit Glove Patterns

Keep those fingers toasty with these gorgeous patterns for gloves!

Updated September 16, 2019
Knit Glove Patterns

I don't know about where you live, but here in Illinois, it sometimes gets so cold that normal mittens won't cut it. In fact, I've been known to wear mittens over a pair of gloves; it's embarrassing, I know, but it really works. If you're not as insane as I am, just one pair of gloves should do the trick. Though it can be tricky (and sort of finnicky) to learn how to knit each individual finger, there is little more satisfying than binding off each digit at just the perfect length to keep you cozy.

Knitting gloves definitely proves to be a bit harder than your standard pair of mittens or fingerless gloves, but that doesn't mean that there aren't patterns out there that help keep them approachable and simple to get the hang of. There are even knit gloves patterns for straight needles if you're a little bit DPN-phobic! Read on to find the perfect glove pattern for you if you find yourself breathing on your fingers just to keep them warm—or you can find the best glove pattern to knit for your loved ones this holiday season and spread the joy of toastiness.

Rita Hayworth Long Gloves

Ladies with a flair for the vintage, this is the knit glove pattern for you. These gloves, evocative of a certain Ms. Hayworth, are the definition of elegance and old Hollywood beauty. The slip stitch pattern gives the body of these gloves an almost-cabled look that makes them appear much more complicated than they actually are.

Wallace Tartan Gloves

If you're as big of a colorwork freak as I am, these gloves are your next project. The tartan pattern will add some plaid appeal to your wardrobe, and it's much easier than it looks to knit up. Since there are no frilly bits or lacy edges on this pair of gloves, it even makes a great gift for the man in your life.

Knit Gloves Pattern on Straight Needles

That's right: if you're not comfortable working on double-pointed needles, or haven't tried knitting in the round yet at all, there is still a knit glove pattern for you. These patterns are knit on one set of single-pointed needles, so there's no messing around with small-diameter projects in the round (the bane of many of our existences). The hardest part of these gloves is the cabling, so get practicing!

Atelier Gloves

What I love about this feminine pair of gloves is the subtle tree lace design on the back of the hand. This is the perfect way to celebrate Christmas in a tasteful and elegant way. The green coloring gives these gloves a springy look, so you don't need to wallow in the winter doom and gloom. If the lace wasn't lovely enough, they even feature a fun scalloped edge.

Fair Isle Gloves

Let me tell you a secret: these gloves aren't /actually/ fair isle. That's right; the yarn is self-striping in such a way that the design it makes appears as if it was accomplished through stranded colorwork! Since there's no effort involved in constantly switching colors on the same row, you can focus on the structure of the gloves and let the yarn do the heavy lifting.

Elegant Opera Gloves

This pattern is for those of us who really don't care how their glove looks; they just want something warm and cozy that will last them years. Something simple like these Glover Gloves are what you're looking for. If you use a variegated or self-striping yarn, you can achieve an elegant-looking design with no work whatsoever. Plain patterns like this one are the perfect opportunities to use those funky sock yarns in your stash!

Vintage Houndstooth Gloves

That's right; we're back at it again with another vintage glove pattern for you old souls. For any of you who remember when houndstooth was all the rage, we have some good news: it's coming back in, and it's bigger than ever. Why not make a pair of gloves in the trendy pattern? Since this pattern actually uses a stranded colorwork technique, you can stick with the pictured white and gray, or pick your two favorite colors to knit with.

Malabrigo Gloves

If you're relatively confident in the structure of knitting gloves and want to try playing with color, but you're not quite ready yet to do a full set of stranded colorwork gloves, this is the perfect pair for you. Made with simple stripes of two contrasting colors, you only need minimal experience with colorwork to pull these off. The best part: the colorwork is all finished before you have to finagle those tricky fingers.

Just wondering why all these patterns have so extremely short fingers. They would never fit my hands.
