Margarete Fingerless Gloves

A pair of fingerless gloves with a flower pattern. The effect  is achieved by drawing additional loops through stitches two rows below.

Modifications for a two colour-version are given at the end of this post - as are modifications to make a smaller version (rather ladies size S).

Flower Pattern Stitch
One flower is knit as follows: k1, insert needle in stitch 2 rows below and 2 stitches in front & draw a loop of yarn placing it on the right needle (Loop 1), k2,  insert needle in stitch 2 rows below and draw a loop of yarn placing it on the right needle (Loop 2), k2, insert needle in stitch 2 rows below and 2 stitches back and draw a loop of yarn, placing it on the right needle (Loop 3)
For the loop stitches, please note the following
→ do not slip the stitch from needle that you have just stitched into
→ make sure to draw all additional loops through the same stitch 2 rows below
→ you have additional loops on your needle, this will we rectified in the next row
→ a crochet hook might be useful for pulling up the loops
In the next row you will have to knit the k stitch in front and the loop together (Kltog) making sure that the loop is in front of the stitch as you knit it, i.e. for one flower: Kltog, k1, Kltog, k1, Kltog


Pattern Chart
The pattern is composed of flowers repeated every 10th row with an offset of 5 rows and one purl stitch between the flower columns.



Instructions

CO48
join in round

Set-up Row: p1 k5 (repeat a total of 8 times)
Row 1: p1 k5 (repeat a total of  8 times)
Row 2 = Row 1
Row 3 = Row 1
Row 4: p1 k1 Loop 1 k2 Loop 2 k2 Loop 3 p1 k5 (repeat a total of 4 times)
Row 5: p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog p1 k5 (repeat a total of 4 times)
Row 6 = Row 1
Row 7 = Row 1
Row 8 = Row 1
Row 9: p1 k5 p1 k1 Loop 1 k2 Loop 2 k2 Loop 3 (repeat a total of 4 times)
Row 10: p1 k5 p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog (repeat a total of 4 times)

Repeat 3 times, but to start the thumb gusset change row 10 of the 3rd repeat as follows:
  • For the right hand mitt: Row 10 (3rd repeat):  p1 k5 p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog (repeat twice) pm p1 pm k5 p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 ksltog  p1 k5 p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog
  • For the left hand mitt: Row 10 (3rd repeat): p1 k5 p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog (repeat twice)  p1 k5 pm p1 pm Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog p1 k5 p1 Kltog k1 Kltog k1 Kltog
By starting the thumb gussets at different places the pattern on the two mitts will by symmetrical.

Thumb Gusset:
Knit according to pattern until you reach the first stitch marker, then do the following instead of the purl stitch between the markers.
Thumb Row 1: slm mk1p k1 mk1p slm
Thumb Row 2: slm p1 k1 p1 slm
Thumb Row 3: slm p1 mk1r k1 mk1l p1 slm
Thumb Row 4: slm p1 k3 p1 slm
Thumb Row 5: slm p1 mk1r k3 mk1l p1 slm
Thumb Row 6: slm p1 k5 p1 slm
Thumb Row 7: slm p1 mk1r k5 mk1l p1 slm
Thumb Row 8: slm p1 k7 p1 slm
Thumb Row 9: slm p1 mk1r k7 mk1l p1 slm
Thumb Row 10: slm p1 k9 p1 slm
Thumb Row 11: slm p1 mk1r k9 mk1l p1 slm
Thumb Row 12: slm p1 k11 p1 slm
Thumb Row 13:  slm p1, move 11 sts to stitch holder, p1 slm
Thumb Row 14:  remove marker, p2tog, remove marker
        → once again there are 48 sts on your needles

Finishing rows:
Work row 1 of pattern three times
Work 4 rows of ribbing: p1 k2
Bind off in 5th ribbing row

Thumb:
Move 11 stitches from stitch holder on two dpns.
Pick up 5 sts from above thumb gusset (→ 16 sts)
Rows 1 – 4: knit
Rows 5 – 7: k3 p1 (repeat)
Bind off in k3 p1 ribbing in row 8


Modifications if you want to make a two colour version:
  • in the loop row knit the loop stitches with the contrast colour
  • in the next row, use the main colour to knit the stitches & loops together
The photo on the right shows the WS to give you an idea how the yarn is stranded.

The two-colour version in the pictures is also smaller, i.e.it is rather a size S.
  • CO 42 instead of 48
  • ribbing: p1 k2 p1 k2 p1 (repeat)
