This pattern was designed assuming you know how to add fingers and a thumb to wristlettes or gauntletts, aka fingerless gloves. If you’ve got a fair bit of knitting experience, these should be pretty easy. For beginners, it may be challenging to add the fingers but the stitch pattern should be fairly easy.
The fingers for these gloves go up to the second knuckle. If you wanted to make these into fully-fingered gloves, just finish off the fingers to the appropriate length. If you want to make them in a smaller or larger size, adjust the main body of the pattern in increments of 6 stitches (three for the palm side pattern and three for the back of the hand pattern) and adjust the number of stitches for the fingers and thumb accordingly. To make the palms longer or shorter, adjust the number of rows in increments of three as well.
Fits a large man’s hand that is approximately 8.5 inches around the knuckles.
Yarn: sock yarn approximately 200 meters/216 yards.
Needles: #2 US
Gauge: 24 stitches x 30 rows in stockinette = 3 inches x 3 inches
