Easy to knit, warm to wear.
These fingerless gloves are knit in a square shape and then seamed up one side, leaving a hole for the thumb. The pattern is suitable for beginners and the gloves are a woman's medium size.
The stitch is a reversible rib that creates a stretchy fabric and looks best when knit with small needles.
Cast on 42 stitches.
*K2, P2*, repeat from *. Continue this repeat until the piece is 2.5 inches long.
Decrease two stitches: K2TOG, *P2, K2* to last two stitches, K2TOG. (40 stitches)

Use mattress stitch to seam the side of the glove starting with the wider edge where you cast on. Leave a 1.5 inch gap in the seam for the thumb approximately 2 inches from the top (the narrower edge where you did the bind off).
Make a second glove by following the same steps.
