Dolce Fingerless Gloves

Lion Brand® Amazing®


16 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd) with larger needles.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between needles and placing it onto left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop.

K2, p2 Rib (worked in the rnd, multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1:
*K2, p2, rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 for K2, p2 Rib.

Beg at upper arm of Glove, with smaller needles, cast on 32 sts. Divide sts onto 3 double pointed needles and join, being careful not to twist sts. Place marker for beg of rnd. Work in K2, p2 Rib, until piece measures about 3 1/2 in. (9 cm) from beg.
Change to larger needles and St st worked in the rnd (k every rnd), and work in St st worked in the rnd until piece measures about 10 in. (25 cm) from beg.

Dolce Fingerless Gloves Reviewed by Kim Mahar on 2012-12-31 *****
I loved this pattern! The current corrections work well. As you can see, they do come out with different stripes and patterns. I was OK with that and think they look great. I made a few changes. I wanted a more lacy finish, so I used PICOT BIND OFF. I also picked up 12 stitches around the thumb and worked in knit one - purl one for 4 rounds. I then used a PICOT BIND OFF for the thumb also. Can't wait to work up another pair.
