Loom Knit Fingerless Gloves

Loom Knit Fingerless Gloves

Small (blue) loom
Bulky yarn (or double stranded worsted weight yarn)
Tapestry needle
Loom tool

*Before you cast on you may want to use stitch markers (or do what I do and just write on your loom with a sharpie) to distinguish your 4 pegs that will become your thumb hole. * 

Seriously the easiest pattern ever, these gloves work up super quick and if you use the bulky yarn they’re very warm!

Cast on all pegs.

Knit around for 20 rows

On row 21, make thumb hole (use technique described in the Cabled Dog Sweater post) but just make one, duh!

Knit around for 6 more rows

Super stretchy bind off (also mentioned in great detail in the Cabled Dog Sweater post)

That’s it, you’re done!

  1. I have read the dog swetter over and over and can't find out how to make the thumb hole is it just panel knitting?.

  2. it is casting off 4 pegs and then you continue to knit around the loom. I've never heard the term panel knitting before but this is on a loom. I use the dog sweater as an example because of the two arm holes, it is the same for the gloves just do it once instead of in two spots. the chart does help to visualize it. i think there are also youtube videos explaining it.
    hope that helps!
