Pattern: Fingerless gloves on straight needles


These fingerless gloves are knitted on straight needles in garter stitch. A simple decorative lace design on the cuff edge is worked simultaneously with the main part of a glove. Thumb gusset is created using one of the short row techniques. Tight grafting completes each glove. Tutorials for all essential techniques necessary for this project are included in this pattern for convenience of a novice knitter.

The pattern includes written (row-by-row) instructions, charts, tutorials and provides a clear guidance throughout the entire process.
