Learn to Knit Gloves

No matter what time of year you’re reading this, I have to ask – have you started knitting your Christmas gifts yet? Gloves are a great gift, and you’ll be surprised by how quickly they knit up.

This pattern is for a warm pair of thick gloves. We use size 3 US needles and worsted weight yarn to make learning the techniques easier. After you’ve worked through this pattern, it will be no problem to move on to other, more complicated patterns that use smaller needles and thinner yarn, to make more delicate gloves.

The only required skills are knitting and purling. The pattern includes links to NINE instructional videos that will explain using double-pointed needles, working the thumb gusset with Make 1 stitches, working the fingers, and doing tidy finishing work.

Sizes: Women’s Small (Women’s Medium, Women’s Large/Men’s Small) [Hand circumference 7” (7.5”, 8”)]
Needles: Set of 4 size 3 US double-pointed needles (3.25 mm)
Yarn: Any worsted-weight yarn, preferably wool or wool blend, approx 75 grams (170 yards)
Additional Materials: 2 ring stitch markers, 1 clippie stitch marker or safety pin (optional), tapestry needle, scrap yarn
Gauge: 6 stitches per inch in stockinette

  1. Perfection! I have been scouring Ravelry for a plain Jane worsted weight glove pattern and here is is! Lots of fingerless gloves or mittens but hardly any gloves patterns. Ordered this immediately. Thanks.

  2. YAY! You made my day… I purchased your mitten pattern and was going to start on it…. Nice to know there is glove pattern available. I have a question… I have been making your Toddler Tunic sweater and wondered if there is a way I could perhaps make it a bit bigger to fit a 2-3 yr old. I love that pattern but not sure how to approach this… Do I use a bigger needle and do I need to swatch even though it is not for the size listed?
    HELP! I appreciate the help you can give.

  3. Awesome! I was thinking about asking if you’d teach this technique.

    Comment by Ginger — July 25, 2011 @ 3:33 pm

  4. Staci, does it matter how long the dpns are? I have some short ones and longer ones. I’m not proficient in working with dpns so I’m trying to decide which ones would be better for me to work with on this pattern?

    Comment by AmyW — July 26, 2011 @ 7:50 am

  5. Amy – You can use whatever length is comfortable for you. I always choose longer DPNs, because I don’t want to worry about my stitches falling off the ends. But the shorter ones might be nice for knitting the fingers, since so few stitches are required.

  6. Thank you for doing the video on making gloves, I have been hesitant in trying to knit those because I was told they were very difficult to do. Now I will challenge them, would you mind doing a video on entrelac? I have seen the pattern for it but would like to watch your techniques, I gain more confidents in myself that way. Thanks kathy

    Comment by kathy walther — July 29, 2011 @ 4:58 am

  7. Hi Kathy – I’m teaching a class this weekend at Gauge Knits on entrelac, and I may convert this class into a video sometime soon. Already been thinking about it!

  8. How can I advance the video to the technique I need to watch? Do not want to start at the beginning each time.

    Comment by Beverly — August 9, 2011 @ 9:48 am

  9. Hi Beverly – two answers to your question. The written pattern (available for purchase and immediate download) gives links that take you right to the section you’re looking for. Also, if you watch the video on YouTube (just click the YouTube link in the lower right corner), the video description also gives the exact links for each section.

  10. I’m interested purchasing this pattern, and would like to know if you offer it in kid sizes as well.

    Comment by Elisabeth A. — September 4, 2011 @ 2:04 pm

  11. Hi Staci, Would it be very difficult to change these gloves to a men’s large? Or maybe I should ask can it be done without making myself crazy?:)

    Comment by Lisa Ray — September 9, 2011 @ 1:17 am

  12. Hi Staci! My boyfriend really likes these gloves, but they are not in his size. His hand circumference is 10 inches. Is it possible of coming out with this pattern in Larger Men sizes? His pinkie is a little bit bigger than the standard size in this pattern. Is there any way of knitting the pinkie larger? I HOPE what I have written makes sense. Staci, you are an amazing woman when it comes to your talent. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your tutorials and patterns!! HUGS>>>>

    Comment by Robin Watchous — September 9, 2011 @ 8:48 pm

  13. Hi Robin – thank you for the nice note! Resizing these gloves to fit a man is no quick task. :) You can do one of two things…you can either knit these gloves (for yourself, maybe) using the video tutorial so you get a good grip on the techniques used in glove knitting, then find a pattern for men to knit next. Or you can loosely use my videos to help you knit a pattern for men’s gloves.

    Once you have the skills to knit gloves, every pattern out there is very similar! Also, it is easy to modify the finger length of any glove pattern.

  15. I knit a hat using DPN’s, but at the end of each needle there was a small gap. How can I knit a hat without this gap?

  16. How may I purchase the Glove Pattern by mail?

    Comment by Regina Barry — November 12, 2011 @ 2:56 pm

  17. hi im a beginner! i started knitting easy hats i never learned to use dpns. can i use Magic Loop Methoid?

    Comment by gloria — November 15, 2011 @ 12:18 pm

  18. Hi Gloria – yes, you can use the magic loop method instead of DPNs for just about any pattern that has you knitting a tube. However, you might find magic loop cumbersome when it comes to knitting the tiny tubes of the fingers of gloves. But give it a try – some people swear by it.

    Comment by gloria — November 16, 2011 @ 11:48 am

  20. I haven’t knit this pattern, and I probably won’t until after Christmas, but I already love it. I have just one problem: I, believe it or not, have different sized pinkies, and I don’t know how to keep track of which it which. Anyone have a really simple, cool looking solution?

    Comment by Grace — November 27, 2011 @ 1:03 am

  21. Hi there! This is SUCH a helpful video and I am so glad I came across it. I’m confused about one thing, though…how on earth do I get my working yarn back down to the main body of the hand after binding off on the pinkie finger? This is my first attempt knitting an item with multiple pieces that have to be bound off individually, and I can’t for the life of me figure that part out. At this point, I have the pinkie finger done and the rest of my stitches on a stitch holders with no working yarn in sight (since I cut it to bind off the pinkie). Thanks so much!!

    Comment by Jessica — December 3, 2011 @ 7:01 pm

  22. Staci, I am knitting the beginner glove and I’m wondering…do you knit both gloves identical? Don’t you have to put the thumb on the opposite side for the other hand?
    I’m finding your directions easy to follow and the video is priceless. I’ve had to watch the video, stop, do the task, watch the video. I don’t think could have accomplished the glove without the video. Thank you.

    Comment by Joann Head — December 5, 2011 @ 3:40 pm

  23. Hi Joann – the gloves are identical, which actually allows for longer wear. Here’s how –

    Because there is no R or L hand, you can switch back and forth. The palm-side of the gloves takes the most wear, but if you are switching back and forth, both sides will wear evenly, doubling the life of the gloves. And there is no compromise to the fit.

    Comment by s t a c i — December 5, 2011 @ 4:24 pm

  24. Staci, I am knitting the beginner glove but I’m stuck at one point after finishing the pinky finger and putting all the stitches back on the needles, I have no working yarn to start with but i saw you videos do?
    And you please teach me how to do it?
    Thank you!

    Comment by Michelle Pang — December 7, 2011 @ 2:18 pm

  25. I tried a few glove patterns but they kept confusing me. This glove pattern was fabulous! With the video it was easy. I made a pair for me with a wool mix and a pair for my husband with pure wool. I liked the pure wool better. Of course his were the second pair so I was getting better with the between the fingers part. But I just want to thank you for helping me do something I never thought I would be able to do. I will buy patterns from you again.

    Comment by Renee S — January 2, 2012 @ 11:30 am

  26. I’m in my 24th year of teaching business at a technical college, and I want to compliment you on your superb teaching skills. You have the ability to know what a student might need to have answered and be shown. Your pleasant personality, demeanor, and voice also comes through via video. All of your videos are very clear, and the steps you are teaching can be easily seen and followed. Thank you!
    Now to my question: The other day I discovered circular 8″ length knitting needles that supposedly can be used for small circumferences. Since you give specific numbers of stitches that need to be on certain needles at certain times that you tell us on this video and in the pattern, which I purchased, I’m not sure if or how to adapt these instructions to the above needles. I find DPNs hurt my hands, are cumbersome, and I just plain don’t like them so I was excited to discover the 8″ circs.

    Comment by Karen Amrein — January 19, 2012 @ 9:01 am

  27. Hi Karen – thank you for your nice email!

    Yes, you can use 8″ circs for the gloves, but you’ll need to use DPNs for the fingers and thumb. The only difference will be that you’ll need to use a ring marker on the circular to mark the beginning of your round. (With DPNs, we can easily see the beginning of the round as being between two needles.)

    The only place that I really give you a specific number of stitches to watch is while you’re knitting the fingers. The rest of the time, the only important thing is to make sure you know where the beginning of your round is.

    Hope that helps!

    Comment by Roland Dimmick — January 29, 2012 @ 9:58 am

  30. I’m wondering if you used sport yarn for these gloves would it work out? I would think it would be less bulky between the fingers for movement.

    Comment by kathy walther — February 22, 2012 @ 4:24 pm

  31. I am working on the gloves. I wish you had a little more instructions on adding a new working yarn and the area next to the pinkie. I got it done but sure it isn’t right. Not a big hole, so maybe it is somewhat right. I did manage to get an extra stitch on the round.Thank for the videos. I work a while and stop re-watch. They are great.

  34. Praise the LORD for this “how to knit gloves” video! You, whoever you are, are an angel, for providing this free. I was just about to pay for a class, via another website, in September.
    I’m glad I don’t have to pay for the video. Bless you for making things like this available for EVERYONE who can watch You Tube. We need to make gloves, too. Thank you, thank you.

  36. I think your glove pattern is awesome. I just purchased the download and I love your tutorials. I am a visual learner. Hope you keep the site up as it has been really helpful. You are a great teacher. Thanks

    Comment by Cindy Burdette — September 16, 2012 @ 11:30 am

  37. I’m using your pattern and videos for the first set of fingerless gloves and will also purchase your glove pattern/video. Before I get started, my question is this: The instructions don’t seem to give you a right and left pattern for the thumb placement, as if it doesn’t matter since I would turn the gloves over to fit each hand. Am I correct? Also, if I wanted to do some fair isle work on the top side of the glove, I have to place the thumb according to which hand the glove goes on, whether right or left. How do you switch the placement?

    Comment by Marie Chadaris — September 24, 2012 @ 9:13 am

  38. Hi Marie – yes, you are correct. :) The gloves are identical on the fronts and backs, so no right or left hand is necessary. This design is also beneficial in the way that it gives the gloves a longer life. If the hands are always being switched when worn, they won’t wear out as quickly.

    I think that you’ll find it clear which how to identify a left glove from a right one after you start knitting them. The left glove is going to have the thumb facing right – so you’ll want to add your fair isle design accordingly. You’ll still knit the two gloves identically – but designate one as the left and the other as the right as you go.

    Hope that helps! Good luck.

    Comment by Sharon — September 25, 2012 @ 2:44 am

  40. Staci- I finished the gloves and they are wonderful. I am now using the pattern with fair isle. I also purchased a set of addi clicks after watching your sock video. I am excited to get them. Keep making videos- I love them. Told my local knitting shop about you.

    Comment by Cindy — October 4, 2012 @ 11:43 am

  41. Hi Staci – great tutorial. I have an unusual question. I’ve never knitted gloves before, but I reckon I can manage it fine. I’ve decided my first pair will be a present for my brother-in-law this Xmas. The only thing is, he has a finger missing (woodworking accident I think.) It occurred to me that he probably hasn’t enjoyed the benefit of fitted gloves for years! So I’m making him a pair.
    How do you suggest that I deal with the missing finger? It’s the right hand/ring finger. Do I knit to accommodate it, then just seal those stitches with Kitchener stitch you think? You would never know that he has a missing finger as it was removed right down to the top of the palm and it’s like all the other fingers have shuffled in to fill the gap. It’s not that obvious unless you’re really looking.
    Weird request right? But I would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!

    Comment by Nicola — October 26, 2012 @ 11:08 am

  42. Staci,

    Thank you for your easy-to-learn patterns and methods. I am halfway finished with the second glove of my very first pair. I have been waiting for just the right pattern to give gloves a try!

    Comment by Linda — November 7, 2012 @ 10:34 am

  43. Hi Staci,
    I purchased your pattern and have been following along and am now at the point where I’ve finished the cuff and realize I’ve been knitting on the inside of the glove! When I started to knit the first round leading up to beginning the thumb gusset I realized I had purl stitches and it dawned on me what was going on! What should I do? I think maybe if I put all my stitches on some holding yarn and turn the cuff inside out, redistribute my stitches back onto the dpns, I will be able to knit it. What do you advise? Many thanks. Mary

    Comment by Mary — January 6, 2013 @ 4:13 pm

  44. Mary – this is more common than you might think. :) You should be able to flip the work right-side out and continue that way…watch this video for more help: http://verypink.com/2011/04/13/knitting-inside-out-on-dpns/

    Comment by s t a c i — January 6, 2013 @ 4:33 pm

  45. Hi there Staci
    I just have to say that you are an awesome teacher I followed a few of your instructional videos now and I find them very very helpful I’ve recently made some socks and now there are dozens of pairs about the house thanks very much! And btw how many sts would be needed for a medium mans glove ? Mnay thanks

    Comment by edward — January 27, 2013 @ 10:34 pm

  46. Hi Edward – sorry, this pattern doesn’t go up that far to men’s medium size. It is really just a women’s sized pattern, but women’s large also translates to men’s small. You can learn from the pattern and knit some gloves in a smaller size, then you’ll have the skills you need to move on to other patterns that offer other sizes. I’m afraid I’d need to rewrite the pattern and test knit it myself before I could give you an answer about altering the size.

    Sorry I can’t be of more help here. Good luck to you!

  47. This glove pattern and tutorial came to my rescue. I had been wanting to learn to make gloves for quite some time and made a few disastrous and frustrating attempts trying to follow other patterns. I could make mittens but could never figure out how the fingers on gloves were worked.Then I came across Staci’s pattern on Ravelry and combined with her excellent step by step video instructions I finally succeeded in making my first pair of gloves. (I would post a photo of them but don’t have the computer know how to do so). But I will say they came out great and I’m ready to make another pair. Thank you Staci!

    Comment by Diane Golding — March 30, 2013 @ 12:06 pm

  48. Hi, have downloaded pattern and it looks great. In your description it states that you can knit more finer gloves with different yarns etc but it doesn’t give the information on how to do this. Being new to knitting, would it be possible to find out if you use the same number stitches if you were using a finer yarn etc and the needles size that this would require. Thanks.

    Comment by Virginia Wildeboer — March 30, 2013 @ 5:32 pm

  49. Hi Virginia – yes, what I mean by that is that you can search Ravelry and browse the gloves patterns, and after you work through this tutorial, you’ll have the skills you need to move on to other, more complicated patterns that use finer yarns and smaller needles.

    Hope that helps!

  51. Hi Staci!!

    I just wanted to let you know I made my first pair of gloves for my grandma following your video and pattern. Thank you! She loved them! I made it a set, by knitting a scarf I followed on Craftsy, and then a rose from a tutorial on youtube. I attached the rose to a pin so she can put it anywhere on the scarf or jacket and wear it now until the cold weather kicks in. She was amazed I learned to knit so quickly, so I showed her your site! She and my mom have always wanted to learn to knit but had no one who could teach them. I am so happy to have found your site, thanks to you, we are all learning now! I can’t wait to pick up more projects!!

    Comment by Tracy — August 8, 2013 @ 8:07 am

  52. Staci,

    I have made two pair of your gloves, never imagining that I would ever even make one! I saw a video today, though, that was knitting gloves from the fingertips down on circular needles. They were already past the point of joining the fingers and working the thumb, but I wondered if you ever thought of doing a finger-down glove pattern?

    Comment by Linda — August 14, 2013 @ 11:18 am

  53. Hi Staci, I love your videos. I’m having the same problem as Michelle Pang. In your viedo you have a working yarn after you finish the Pinky. But there is none.I’m trying to fugure out what to do. Please do a correction.Thank You! Please forgive my spelling. I forgot the knitter is Michelle Pang December 7 2011.@2:18pm.

    Comment by gloria — August 16, 2013 @ 11:18 am

  54. Gloria – yes, you have to reattach the yarn to continue, at the base of the pinkie finger. When you finish knitting the pinkie, the working yarn was cut at the tip of the pinkie finger.

    This video will help if you’re confused how to do this. It demonstrates how to attach a new yarn when you’re changing colors, but the technique is exactly the same if you’re using the same color, and attaching a “new” strand.

  56. Hi Staci! I’m excited to get going on some gloves. Once I’m done, I plan to knit some fingerless gloves for my niece as a Christmas present.

    I have been wondering if you have any special tips for blocking gloves. Do you just lay them out flat? Do you pin them? Do you have a hand-shaped blocking form that you use?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Comment by karshni — October 29, 2013 @ 10:51 am

  59. Do you have instructions for making larger patterns eg. Men’s large?

    Comment by Judy — November 6, 2013 @ 3:26 pm

  60. Hi Judy – I don’t have a pattern for men’s large gloves, but there are a couple of things you can do. You can knit it in a slightly larger gauge for a larger mitten, or you can learn the techniques I teach here, and use those skills to knit other gloves patterns. Once you work through any of my tutorials, you have the skills you need to move on to all kinds of patterns, including ones that are designed for whatever size you need.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks again, Robbie

    Comment by robbie` — November 9, 2013 @ 11:54 am

  62. Hi Staci ~ I ordered your glove pattern and I’m looking forward to making my first pair of gloves! I have avoided these due to the thumb and fingers. I made my first pair of mittens last week…didn’t turn out too badly. I made it past the thumb gusset and now will tackle the “pinkie”. I like being able to view the tutorials…I’m more a “visual” person, so these are quite helpful. I have a question though; about the thumb gusset. I noticed your directions indicate M1L,K1,M1R. I thought it would be M1R,K1,M1L. Your expertise will be greatly appreciated. I used your tutorials to help with the Christmas stockings. Thank you so much for sharing all your helpful techniques and knowledge. Happy Knitting! ~ Sly

    Comment by Sly — November 12, 2013 @ 4:20 pm

  63. Hi Sly – either is fine, as long as they are “mirrored” increases. I prefer the way I have it in the pattern, but you are welcome to have the Make 1 increases lean the opposite way, if you prefer.

    Comment by s t a c i — November 12, 2013 @ 4:33 pm

  64. I have a silly question but I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I’m following along with your video and the pattern but for some reason as I’m knitting the gloves the tube is forming towards me as opposed to away and as a result my glove is forming inside out. Also, when it comes time to knit the pinky if I follow your video the pinky loop will be formed away from the rest of the fingers as opposed to facing the ring finger and I have to reverse the position of my needles. I obviously am doing something in reverse as I start the cuff but I can’t for the life of me figure out what. Any ideas?

    Thank you so much!

  67. Hi Staci,
    Good Evening ! I started to work on this pattern, after casting on, Its so difficult to work the first row. I was wondering, is it possible to use circular needles ? Would That serve the purpose or I HAVE to use the 3 DPNS plus 1 working DPN?

    Looking forward to your reply.


    Comment by Shay — February 10, 2014 @ 9:20 pm

  68. Hi Staci,

    My Above comment was meant for the “How to knit the Mittens” video. I am so sorry.. LOL.. I had two windows open one for gloves and other for mittens. Silly of me. Anyways, The question about the circular needle is for the knitting Mittens.


    Comment by Shay — February 10, 2014 @ 9:27 pm

  69. Shay – if you’re comfortable using the magic loop method for circular knitting, you can use that in patterns any time DPNs are called for. No problem. It’s really just a matter of knowing how to do it, and personal preference. You may find that you want to go back to DPNs when you knit the thumb (or fingers of gloves), but for most of the pattern, magic loop is fine.

    S t a c i

    Comment by s t a c i — February 11, 2014 @ 8:22 am

  70. This was a fun and very manageable pattern! You did a great job explaining everything; I’ve made fingerless gloves before but felt intimidated by regular ones, although now I know there was no need to be! When finishing up, do I just pull the finger thread from the outside to the inside and finish up as you demonstrated with the between-the-fingers thread? Also, when blocking (new to that as well), can you wrap both gloves in the same towel or do you recommend separate towels for each piece?

  71. Thank you for the note, Sam. To answer your first question, yes – all ends are handled the same way. Pulled to the inside of the glove, and woven in. To answer your second question – one bath towel is enough to block a pair of gloves.

  72. I love doing magic loop and would like to know how to generally convert DPN to Magic Loop because I don’t like DPN’s since the markers I use slip off and it is hard for me to see where I am in the round. I do like circulars though because the markers don’t slip off and it is much easier for me to see where I am.

  73. If you’re comfortable using the magic loop method, there is no special trick to using any pattern with magic loop when DPNs are called for. The only trick is that if the pattern repeat is split into thirds (on three DPNs), you have to think about how that works split into halves (on magic loop). You can use stitch markers if that is the case.

  75. Hi again Stacy, I’m using this wonderful tutorial again as I make a pair of gloves from the One Skein book: Unisex Gloves. It is SO helpful.

    I also watched your dryer ball video and wanted to enter the contest but couldn’t find a link to do so or to subscribe at the end of it.
    I also tried to email you but the email was returned as unable to deliver. So I decided to leave a comment here as a last resort.

    My green house tip for the contest:

    Place small containers of baking soda (about one cup in each) throughout the house as an easy and chemical-free way to freshen rooms, Cheap, safe and effective. I usually change these every 3 months.

    thanks again for all your resource videos and for the contest too!

    Happy Week, Geraldine

  78. Staci i’ve just finished just finished the cuff but i’m stuck at the part after the M1L ML and then it says K to last stitch M1, K1. What does it mean?

  79. Lag_z – you need to add one more stitch, one more increase (M1) before the end of the round.

  81. I bought the beginners glove pattern awhile ago and made a couple of pairs and thought I would make a pair again but I don’t know where to go to download it again.

  82. Sorry, Just thought to look to see if I printed it out and put in my favorites book. And low and behold there it is. Thanks anyway. Love your pattern.

  83. […] As I mentioned in my last post, I have been doing some serious organising recently and trying to find patterns for my stashed wool. Thanks to the fab search tools on Ravelry I was able to find some great suggestions! Just in time for the really cold weather, I found a great first glove project that comes with handy YouTube vids to help with the most complicated parts from the lovely Staci of verypink.com. […]

  84. These are what I have been searching for for ages! I want to make these gloves for my husband but cannot find a pattern using DPNs. Could I go a size up in needles, would that make these a bit bigger?

    Comment by Debbie Clark — February 16, 2015 @ 9:17 am

  85. I also want to make these for a medium man’s hands. If I went up a needle size would that make them a bit bigger?

    Comment by Debbie Clark — February 16, 2015 @ 9:20 am

  86. Debbie – yes, you can alter the size of the gloves by changing the needle sizes a bit. I have not test knit these that way, so it may require some experimentation on your part to get the size just right. Good luck!

  87. Hi staci
    i noticed that the 2 by 2 rib for the cuff was very loose and i redid it over and over again to see if I did something wrong but i got nothing

    I was wondering if you could tell me the tightest rib for the cuff so that it fits my hand and stays on??

    Thanks u r the best!!!

    Comment by farnaz — July 22, 2015 @ 1:04 pm

  88. Staci, I have very small hands (5.5″ circumference at widest part). I am hoping to find a glove pattern that fits me, or to learn how to modify a pattern to fit me. Is this pattern adjustable to fit a hand like mine, and do you have any tips for making such a modification? Would I be better off looking for a child’s glove pattern? Thank you!

    Comment by Linda — October 5, 2015 @ 4:37 am

  89. Linda – this glove pattern comes in three sizes, but the smallest (women’s small) is 7 around. I just looked, and 5.5″ falls into the kids/teen glove sizes. I think your best bet is to find a kid/teen glove pattern.
