Quick gloves knitting pattern – mobile phone perfect

There has been a sudden drop in temperature. I needed gloves which were quick to make, warm and practical. The solution was to knit a glove that is made in one piece with no sewing required; and for speed, knitted horizontally instead of vertically in a chunky wool.

Because of the cold, I don’t personally like fingerless gloves or mittens, which have to be removed every time you need to do anything with your hands. These are a good compromise.

These gloves are particularly handy for mobile phone users because the stretchy finger tips finish with a small hole. If you need to answer your mobile you can poke out a finger, or write a text without having to expose your whole hand to the cold. The Handy Mobile Phone Glove pattern can also be made up as a traditional pair of gloves if you prefer.

This is a brand new pattern, designed in South Bohemia at the start of Winter 2007.

Knit your own gloves in a single winter evening. This is a simple pattern knit on two needles (no fiddly 3 needle bits), using basic knit stitch, increase and decrease stitches and picking up cast off stitches.

The pattern is clear and straight forward, and includes photos and a stitch diagram for you to follow as you knit your gloves.

You will need:

  • 100g chunky wool (150 metres)
  • 5 mm knitting needles
  • 8 hours (for an experienced knitter)

This really is another perfect way to use up wool from a favourite (but unfashionable) old jumper. Or search charity shops for an inexpensive luxurious cashmere or mohair for your own unique work.

Please send us a photo of your finished gloves if you would like to have them included in our knitters gallery.

This pattern is only available on Ebay, or as a download from the payloads web site. This pattern is provided as a pdf file. If you need another format, please contact us. Many thanks for looking.
