Malva Christie Fingerless Gloves

If you have been watching the Outlander TV series, you have probably noticed the beautiful costumes and knitted pieces that the characters wear.

In season six, the character of Malva Christie is seen wearing these brown cable knit gloves with a reddish patterned scarf belted at the waist,

You can see her fingerless gloves in the image below.

Knitting Gloves In the Round

The mitten or glove is knit in the round (either with short circulars or using the magic loop method) with increases made for the thumb section.

There are three sizes to make and each one will have the main cable pattern on the top and a simple stockinette stitch knitted fabric on the underside.

The thumb is then knitted after the main section of the glove has been finished.

The yarn I used

For this project I used Cascade 220 in Brown (8686), this is a worsted weight yarn/medium weight yarn #4.

This was knit on size 5mm (US 8) circular knitting needles, I used a 16-inch cable and used the magic loop method.

I would suggest pulling a bit tighter at each end when you use the magic loop to stop any laddering or loose stitches appearing at the sides.

They are knit in the round on circular needles.
