Lace Crochet Fingerless Gloves

February 23, 2009

I just started knitting and crocheting last year and I am still getting used to reading patterns and using different yarn weights. I found a great pattern for lace fingerless gloves and stitched some up in some left over yarn just to get the feel for the pattern. As you can see this gold yarn was way too bulky and my glove looked more like a strange wrist cast. I recently bought some finer yarn shown below that I am really excited about. I will keep you posted on my progress with the new yarns.

  1. hi karen, i’m pretty new to reading knitting patterns myself and i just found one which seems really easy, with a puff stich. it is vintage and it tells me the following:”k1, p1, k1 into next st (1 puff stitch made), p next 3 tog”. i guess that the last thing means that i should purl the next 3 stiches together, thus reducing the amount of stiches by 2, is that correct? what i don’t understand is the “k1 into next stitch”. which next stitch? i’m so confused and would be so grateful if you or anybody else could help me with this, as i sooo much want to understand it and knit the pattern…

  2. I’m so glad you posted this Karen! I was wondering about posting stuff made in crochet and knit.

    Anyway, I really like the golden color. That lavender yarn should be lovely when it’s stitched up.

    Sorry froken lila, I’m only a crocheter and a newbie at that, so I can’t help with your query. I wish I could!

  3. Perhaps this helps with the knitting pattern: ‘k1, p1, k1’ would mean creating three stitches out of one. So, insert your needle into the next stitch on th left needle, and knit one st but without pulling it off the needle; take the yarn forward, create a purl stitch in that same stitch without pulling it off the needle, take yarn to the back and create a knit stitch – this time transferring all three stitches to the other needle.

    2 extra stitches have been created; stitch balance is restored by purling the next 3 sts together.

    I hope this is clear!

  4. I, as a beginner myself, always get a little frustrated when i don’t understand the pattern. I just test it out and see if it looks like the photo. Often, it just works out fine. Play with it, see what it looks like.
