As Winter is finally starting to ebb away in my area, I’m thinking about lovely Spring weather with little bouts of cool breezes and chilly evenings. In between weather needs a hero and I call knitting to the rescue! Fingerless gloves are what I’m all about these days because I hate wearing real gloves. They never fit my fingers comfortably, they make me feel like I’m wearing hand diapers, and I have to keep taking them off to accomplish simple tasks. Fie on you, gloves!
In that vein of thinking, I’d like to humbly redirect your attention to my Row of Flower Mitts Knitting Pattern. It uses a super bulky yarn to knit up super quickly and it’s just so cushy and snug for your hands. No fiddly fingers to knit or get in your way! I’m really happy with how these turned out and they fit so well that I made a ton of them last year.
These fingerless gloves are knit on 10.5 double pointed needles or circulars using a super bulky yarn. They knit up in a flash and are appropriate for most beginner and intermediate knitters. It features a simple body shape that anyone can master. The stockinette stitch hand sets off a lotus stitch spine that adds interest and a focal feature. The thumb gusset is knit in and you could easily add a full thumb if you were so inclined.

Here’s a 360 for you.
I used Hometown USA for most of those pairs and I really love the way it knit up. Even after being frogged a few times knitting my draft patterns, it still looks very good. It’s got good definition and it nice and soft. I’d highly recommend it for easy-care accessories like this because you can just throw it in the wash and forget about it.
