Quick Christmas Gifts: Timothy Broken Rib Fingerless Gloves

Fingerless gloves are very popular right now. This pattern is quick and easy and can be made in a few hours. Get those needles going and make several for gifts in these last few weeks before the holidays.

I used a 100% acrylic yarn for this pair, making in bright orange (this is Bronco land, after all), and this worsted is particularly soft. A perfect yarn for those with wool allergies (Oh, I feel so sorry for them!)

Timothy Broken Rib Fingerless gloves

·        1 skein Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted
·        US #9 double-pointed needles
·        Stitch marker
·        Yarn needle
Knitting Gauge: 16 stitches/20 rows  = 4" – Gauge is not critical because this pattern has a lot of stretch.

Size: One size will fit some adults. 


Cast on 40 stitches. Place a stitch marker and join, being careful not to twist the row.

Work the broken rib stitch as follows:
Round 1 (over 5 stitches) – *P1, k3, p1.* Continue to end
Round 2 – P1, k1, p1, k1, p1.



Continue the broken rib pattern until the gloves measures 6 inches, ending with round 1.

Thumb hole:

Leave the stitch marker and turn your work.

Round 2 – Slip 1 stitch purlwise. k1, p1 to end of the row (at marker). Turn work.
Round 1 – Slip 1 stitch purlwise, p3, k1. *k1, p3, k1* to end of round. Turn.

Continue with these two rows for 2 inches, ending with row 2.


Join at marker. Return to the Broken Rib stitch in the round:

Round 1 (over 5 stitches) – *P1, k3, p1.* Continue to end
Round 2 – P1, k1, p1, k1, p1.

Continue broke rib stitch for 2½ more inches. Bind off loosely in pattern.  Weave in the ends.

Make second glove the same way. Wear in warmth!
