Knit Gauntlets

I've always called them fingerless gloves. My mother bought me a pair back when I was 13-years-old and I wore them all the time. I wore them over regular gloves when walking to school and I wore them just so when I needed use of my fingers but still needed to keep my hands warm while working on the farm. Now that I am older, the cold bothers my hands more and more. I wear my handmade gauntlets indoors and outdoors, and I try to make a pair for just about every season and outfit.

Easy Christmas Striped Gauntlets Pattern

Medium weight yarn (4). For the Christmas colors, I used a tan and dark red.

Size 9 needles.

Cast on 25.

Beginning at the fingers:

Color Tan:

Rows 1, 3, 5: *K1, P1*, K1.

Rows 2, 4: *P1, K1*, P1.

Pattern:

Begin with color red. Do rows 6 through 11. Switch to color tan and do rows 6 through 11 again. Keep alternating colors.

Rows 6 & 8 & 10: Knit.

Rows 7 & 9: Purl.

Row 11: Knit.

Knit rows 1 through 6 four times (4 lines across).

To end, switch to color tan and repeat rows 1 to 5. Bind off.

Finishing: Fold in half, sides touching, purl stitches facing out. Beginning at fingers edge, seam sides for 1 inch. Leave 2 inches unseamed for thumb. Sew remainder of seam and weave in ends. Turn right side out and you're done!
