Quick Christmas Gifts: Timothy Broken Rib Fingerless Gloves - Straight needles

Yesterday, I posted this pattern using double-pointed needles.  I understand that no everyone is comfortable with DPNs and to make this as quick and easy as possible, this is the pattern on straight needles. It is still quick, easy and cute!

Timothy Broken Rib Fingerless gloves

·        1 skein Deborah Norville Everyday Soft Worsted
·        US #9 needles
·        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..

Work the broken rib stitch as follows:

Round 1 – Slip 1 stitch purlwise. k1, p1 to end of the row. 
Round 2 – Slip 1 stitch purlwise, p3, k1. *K1, P3, K1* to end of row. 

Broken Rib Panel


Continue the broken rib pattern until the gloves measures 10½ inches.
Bind off loosely in pattern. 

Using whip stitch, sew up 6 inches up the side from the bottom. Break yarn. Sew 2½” from the top; break yarn. This will leave 2” for the thumb hole.

Weave in the ends.

Make second gloves the same way. Wear in warmth!


  1. Hi there, I am new to knitting and am trying your pattern... I cast on the 40 stitches, knitted the first row, but then cant figure out where to put the marker and how to "turn " the work..can you explain please? Thanks so much.

  2. Sorry, that was left over from the DPNs version. I edited the pattern by removing the reference to markers. This version is worked back and forth.
