Okay, today we are going to be making some fingerless gloves and this is quite a simple straightforward project. We are going to be using well and these are quite lazy low c’mon so I’m using a standard DK you can go up to chunky or if you want them to look evenly, yeah you can drop down to sort of a three-ply we also need scissors and a pen and paper or a stitch count just to keep track of what we’re doing and darning needle knitting hook and a 24 peg knitting loom.
This is the smallest of the size in your standard loom set and we’re going to be knitting in the M flat rather than in the round for this project. Now the gloves that we’re going to make fit they do fit me, I’ve got quite slim hands but they will fit more sort of ladies and sort of teenagers and if you want to take these upper sizes just jump up to the next size of the loom and just literally add a couple of stitches.
All the way through on the width and you can use your own judgement on that what I would do is I would look at besides this pair come out and for each sort of peg you add you will add about a centimeter under the final width so you know each peg from each side so if you go up to the next size of lumen instead of using 24 pegs you use 26 that will probably add about a centimetre onto the total circumference. So use your best judgment there is quite there is quite a bit of stretch in these.
You don’t have to be too exact with it okay in order to start this project as I said we’re going to be working in the flat leave yourself a good length because we can use that in the making up project. We get to that point I’m going to start by tying a little slip knot as always and popping that over this is the little holding peg there now. I’m going to use this as peg number one so not the one directly burning this peg number one. Now we’re not using all the pegs to start, so I want you to count 1 2 3 4 and then that is going to be our first peg so let me just tuck that in there so 1 2 3 4.
And that’s our first one now we’re going to leave a total of 8 pegs empty so let me just wrap these just gonna start doing a little ear up all the way around. I’m gonna have I got MC there one two three wrapped up on too many so I’m gonna flick that one off okay so there we have our initial sort of wrap. I’m just going to tie that on there and then show you again so we’ve got this is the first peg so empty empty empty empty wrap it all the way around and then on the end we’ve got one two three four left okay so that is how we initially start this what we’re going to do is we’re going to do a rib stitch.
We’re going to do a rib stitch for five rows. What we’re going to do in order to achieve this is where we already have an ear up on this I’m going to take that as my first one whenever we’re knitting in the flap we tend not to work this dish will just come off so we’re just going to leave that loosely wrapped around it there and with this one we’re gonna go down through pulling it up then it comes over the top and goes back on the peg like that and then we go and one e-wrap come on we pull down and across so we’ve got that diagonal.
Then we come up and then with this one we go down and threw up and then it flexes up and over you know and we’re going to keep doing this to the end of the row so what we’re going to do this for five rows in fact now what is important with this is that if you doing the normal stitch on a rose opposed to the up and over that stitch on the way back on the second row matches up with the one before it.
You can’t swap them so if you’ve done a normally wrap on a peg with a rib stitch that peg always has to be a normal stitch just gonna rearrange this I’m just going to do to the end of this row so you can see what I mean [Music] and down now we finished that raw and because this is their last peg we’ve done we don’t obviously I’m going to use it as a turnip egg so we don’t put another stitch on it now but because this was an e-wrap peg knot and up and over peg the last time.
We have to stick to that so again we make sure that that peg is also up and over yeah otherwise what happens is your ribs don’t see a nice and straight you don’t get nice straight rips you get a weird mottled effect so I’m gonna leave you to keep going with this then once you’ve done a total of five rows in this rib stitch and come back then we move on to the next part, okay so we’ve now done our five rows of rib stitch.
This is what you’ve got on your loom and now we’re gonna switch to a stitch. I’ve done once before on a video and I’m not sure the proper name s stitches brick stitches actinic: brick statistics only look like little bricks in a wall but we’re gonna go through one by one. I think it’s commonly called a nested it a lot of the time so what we do is from the end of this we start looking at the gaps rather than the peg so we want to look at our first gap and we’re going to come through we’re gonna wrap around one.
And then, back on to the last one and then you knit these off okay nope got and then this time again we’ve come across and just keep going along like that so you go through the gap across around the back and back over okay no we’re going to keep doing this all the way along I’m going to finish this rule because obviously, I know at the end of one we’re knitting in the flat at the end of a lot of the rules you just ignore the last one we did but because of the way this stitch works you have to approach it a little differently.
So let me just get to the end here and I’ll show you how we do that and we’re going to do this stitch for a total of five rows again oh and through the wrong cap okay so it is no good so that is a total of one row now to start our second draw and to continue going with that one right here you’ll see it’s like the wall comes off the second to last peg it’s like it comes off of this one so all we do, because we’re now going this way, is this has to be the first peg we wrap so all we do is we come all the way around wrap it and back there.
Okay I’ll show you that again so we come off of it we come all the way around and back there and then you just continue on as normal, but in the other direction so through the gap around and back and just keep going obviously this is the second row what I want you to do is a total of five rows in this stitch and then I will meet you back yeah okay so I have done the five rows in that stitch now what I’m going to do is another eight however this is slightly different because what we’re going to do.
I’m just going to start knitting as I explain this okay and we’re just going to continue as normal so I’ve done five this is the technically the six, however, it is the first one of our longer for increased rows where we’re going to add an extra stitch on every row and we’re going to do eight of them which means by the time we finish doing those eight every single there every single peg sorry on the loom will be being used and have a stitcher so as much as I recommend keeping track of your of your rules and how many you’ve done you can actually see when you’ve got there with this one because all of the pegs have stitched around you can actually see it.
I’m going to show you how we’re going to do the increase when we get to the end of this row now normally that will be the end of our room we talk on back however as I said this is the first of our increase or so what we do here is we come on to another peg come around and on and then we knit that one and that is technically the end of that row so you mark that down is ending is a rule with an increase now to go back you treat this like a normal stitch so on the way back.
We do like we normally do where we come around and go back and then when we get to the end of this rule we’ll add one on there as well so you need to do a total of eight of those and by the time you’ve done those eight every single peg on the loom will have a stitch on it so I’ll let you go and do that and then I’ll come back one more at that stage okay so we’ve now done those eight rows and as you can see we’ve increased it out so every single peg has a stitch on it now next steps fairly simple all.
We’re going to do is we’re going to continue to knit round in the flat for another three rules so if you go off and you just the same stitch if you guys go off and just knit another three rows and I will meet you back here when we’re at that stage, okay so we’ve now done those additional three so this is kind of what you’re left with at this point and now this is possibly the trickiest bit and but again it’s not – not too bad what we’re going to do is first of all we need we have our stitch here on this one and we just need to get it across here.
We’re just going to do a basic ear up to take that over okay then what we’re going to do is we need to take five stitches off so can we see that I’m going to readjust the camera slightly just you’ve got there and go on this now, I’m gonna lose we want to take that one off I’m gonna get with red we’re gonna kind of wrap it around our hook and we’re going to pull this up and over there okay then we’re going to go to the next stitch we’re going to hook that off I’m gonna pull this up and over and then again.
We’re going to wrap this round pull this along up and over I’m not gonna watch it our next stitch I’m just gonna walking over and then again round. I’ve got five when you take five of the one take this one pull it up and all that now what we’re going to do here is I think so you’ve got one two three four five missing is we’re just going to take this one off which is number six pull it up and over and then pop the other one yeah so pull it up and over so we’re just got one left and then pop that one on there.
So we have one two three four five empty pegs then what we’re going to do is we’re going to continue in the same stitch the air syrup stitch for the brick stitch to knit the rest of this rule as normal so we’re gonna come through wrap it around and over and then we’re just going to keep knitting along the row as we normally would all the way to the very end okay and then jump back on okay so now we’ve got the five missing off that side we’ve taken five off that side we’ve knitted all the way back around to here.
Now we’re going to do the same thing we’re gonna take five off this side so again we need to get to the unpack so we’re just going to do a very quick era there we go and then in exactly the same way this way is for some reason just a little bit trickier and I think it is purely because your kind of working the other way around that makes sense almost feels like you’re doing it left-handed three ohs really love stitch let’s see, I’ve got well one two three four this is number five coming off I’m just gonna double-check.
I’ve got total of ten empty pegs one two three four five six seven eight nine ten yes okay cool so with this one I’m just going to do the same as we did on the other side and take number six off flip it over pop that one on okay and then exactly the same as the last time all we’re going to do is to continue knitting in pretty much exactly the same way by coming around and again just continue to knit around until you get to the end of the stitches that you have a left on and then I will come back to you at that point, okay now we’ve done that you have what looks like this where you have ten empty pegs and fourteen yes pegs still on now all.
I want you to do is knit in the plain backwards and forwards for another five rows but we’re going to switch back to rib stitch now remembering what I said before about how important it is to mmm make sure you knit the same type of stitch on each one so we have to remember that if it’s an e-wrap peg it is an e-wrap peg on every row if it is enough Innova peg it isn’t up Innova peg on every row so be careful of that one and same as we did when we first start the project yeah and but yeah you want to go back and forward until you’ve done a total of five rolls and then come back to me.
Okay so we’ve done our five rows of rib stitch and this is the stage where now right now what we need to do is take it off of the loom so we’re going to do that in the same way that we decreased wanna take one of these off we’re gonna wrap it around pull that up and over and then we’re gonna take the next basically you’re gonna continue in this pattern until you get to the very end and you have all of the stitches off the loom and when you get to the very last stitch of a seat and just tie a small knot on the end of it and switch the other wall and then your piece will be totally off the loom.
So I’m gonna let you guys go and do that while I finish taking this off and then I will meet you back here okay so we’ve got off the loom and tied it off and as you can see we have one very flat look now what we’re going to do is fold this over and I know this looks really thin any like how on earth is that arm going to fit there but believe me it’s quite elastic fabric it will work and what you do want to make sure you’re doing is stitching right along the seam and the path we’re going to stitch is we’re going to use the top thread.
We’re going to stitch along here and here and stop at that corner so just hit here and on the bottom we’re going to stitch from here up the side to here so this bit remains unstitched okay and as I said what you want to make sure you’re doing when you’re stitching is that you are literally I’m just going to pull this Slipknot out that you are literally catching the edges so it is literally you hold these together and you are looking for the very very outside loops, yeah and so you are literally just catching those and pulling them together.
It doesn’t have to be any particularly fancy stitch wrong is this well done yeah and the other thing is don’t pull it too tight or you will get gathering so make sure it stays fairly loose so you want to stitch up here to there you know to switch from the top down and around to that once you’ve done that we will come back okay so we’ve now stitched those edges and the last thing to do is to turn this the right way through no I know we still looking at it thinking Lily.
it’s not gonna fit but honestly this thing is very stretchy knitting see I’ve still got a good bit of room in there and I said I’ve got skinny little fingers but still even for me there is a good bit of room in there and there we have a nice long glyph and then all you need to do is make one exactly the same – go on to use a hunt and you have funky pair of lovely ball fingerless gloves and they’re quite long – you can see so keep your wrist nice and more and I say for all they looked really skinny there is a good bit of room and so there you go fingerless gloves really easily
