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.
