It’s always fun to knit fingerless gloves - especially if the construction is a bit out of the ordinary. This usually leads to special patterns that are particularly attractive when used with self-striping yarn.
This is the case with these fingerless gloves. They are knitted in one piece – starting with a garter stitch ribbing knitted sideways and continued with a main part that is knitted in stockinette stitch (slightly) on the bias. The upper ribbing is also in garter stitch levelling the bias, and finally the thumb is added. These gloves are (nearly) knitted in knit stitch only.
