A good Knit and Purl only workout.
This is a version of the pattern I use in my shop to teach beginners how to knit. I make them all of the time so I have something to keep my hands warm that still allows me to use my cell phone. These gloves are knit flat so that I can make adjustments for my thumb! Make two rectangles following these direction, fold each with right sides together and stitch along one side to create a seam along the thumb side of your hand.

  • Step 1

    To Start: Cast one 32 stitches. I prefer long-tailed. There are many videos you can find online to help you. Leave about 12 inches of tail here for later.

    Step 8

    Using a darning needle and the yarn “tail” sew the two sides together. Do this loosely and with only one stitch per row using a whip stitch. the portion that will sit above your thumb stop your stitching at the edge of the ribbing. Hide your ends along the edge of one side to secure your stitching and cut remaining yarn. Move your darning needle to the other end of the glove and the other yarn tail. Using the same loose technique as above create whip stitches up from the bottom of the glove. Leaving about 3 inches of opening along the side try on the glove. If you are satisfied with the space for your thumb secure and hide your yarn end and you are done. If you would like a tighter thumb opening keep stitching until the fit is best for you. Repeat for a second glove.
