YARN: DK, approx 25g of two colours
NEEDLES: Short circs, 23cm, 4mm
(I got the Chiaogoo TWIST short combo, 2" & 3" needle that comes with a 5" & 6" cable)
NOTIONS: One stitch marker
CO41 in main colour (MC)
R1: Slip 1, K2P2 until 4 stitches left, K2 P1, then purl the last stitch WITH the slipped stitch to join. Place stitch marker
Add contrast colour (CC)
R6,7: Knit CC
R8,9: Knit MC
R10,11: Knit CC
R12,13: Knit MC
R14,15: Knit CC
Split for thumb hole. Remove stitch marker for this bit as you'll be 'knitting flat' but still staying on circular set up (so don't try to actually knit flat)
I found it easier/tidier to carry the yarn up, so the first stitch while 'in the flat' would always have both yarns in the stitch
R16: Purl MC
R17: Knit back
R18: Purl CC
R19: Knit back
R20: Purl MC
R21: Knit back
Replace stitch marker
R22,23: Knit CC
R24,25: Knit MC
Repeat until you have 10 stripes including the rejoin row, and finishing on CC. Cut and tie off CC (leave a few inches to weave in)
In the MC, K2P2 for five rows. Then cast off with a stretchy bind off.
Weave in ends and cut off remnants (put those in your scrap jar).
This creates a very simple, and seamless, fingerless glove that comfortably covers the wrist. And is a great way to use up leftovers.
And if you feel like this pattern is worth a coffee...
