In this post, you will see a roundup of 20 fingerless gloves knitting patterns.
A fall and winter essential, fingerless gloves and mittens are a must-have for colder weather.
This is the perfect time to protect your hands from the cold while allowing your fingers the freedom to still do many things, like drive, type, and touch your phone screen.
Fingerless Mittens And Gloves Are Easy To Knit
This type of mitten is an easy one to knit.
From a basic design with no thumb to more complicated knits with cables, there is a pattern for every skill level in the list.
After all, you don’t want to go out in the chilly air without a pair of these gloves!
My favorite season is autumn, I love the crisp mornings, knitting in the afternoons, and the color change of the trees.
Great For Stash Busting!
Knitting a pair of fingerless mittens or arm warmers is a great way to spend an autumnal afternoon and to stash bust.
- You only need 1 skein of yarn to create a pair, perhaps less depending on how long or short, you make them.
- You can also make gloves in a colorful pattern, including stripes so that even more of your leftover yarns can be used.
- If like me, you have boxes and baskets full of leftover yarns then something stripey can be a great way to use them up.
- Included in the list is a striped pair of mittens, that could be worked up in many color combinations.
- Make them to suit your own personal style, in classy neutrals or daring brights.
Fingerless Mittens + Arm Warmers Knitting Patterns
Many of my own patterns included in the list have been inspired by the Outlander series, with designs based on the original items.
The patterns included are similar to gloves and arm warmers worn by the main characters, Claire and Brianna (mostly knit in Cascade yarns).
There are many beginner patterns in garter stitch, ribbing, stockinette stitch, and a few intermediate choices too, which feature cable-knit designs.
If you would like to purchase the inexpensive ad-free Outlander Pattern Collection that includes all of the fingerless gloves and arm warmers patterns by Handy Little Me please take a look in my shop HERE.
