I looked on these forums to find a patter for this, but have had no luck. I want to make fingerless gloves.
It can either be a pattern that has jus two holes...a big on for fingers and one for my thumb. Or one that has a big hole for fingers, and the thumb is actually covered up to the knuckle.

HOWEVER....
for the pattern...I only have regualr knitting needles, I dont have two pointed ones or whatever they are called. I'm pretty much a beginner.

Any help is appreciated. THanks

You can knit a rectange, fold it in half, and seam up the side, leaving a gap in the seam for your thumb to poke out.

Here's a better explanation:

Thank you so much....
I didnt realize I could leave the hole while stiching the sides together. I though I could have to actually make one.

Thank you so much

I've got a pattern that I got from a lady at a yarn store so it isn't my own. I don't know the original source. It's just a big rectangle sewn up at the sides (leaving a space for your thumb, of course).

BEGINNING OF PATTERN

Wrist Cuffs

Yarn: 1 ball of Zara Merino Wool (I used Patons Classic Merino)
Needles: 4.5mm to 5mm

Cast on 32 stitches
Knit two rows rib knit (knit one, pearl one)
Continue in stockinette stitch
Knit one row, pearl one row for 19cm (7.5 inches)
Finish with rib knit two rows (knit one, pearl one)
Cast off.

Sew together and leave an opening 2.5cm (1 inch) down from the top.
The opening should be 5cm (2 inches).
And sew together the rest.

END OF PATTERN

I hope that helps Cheesy

Try knittinghelp.com, and look for "seaming" under "finishing". These are knitting videos that help lots (: (hopefully you have a fast internet connection). Try browsing around the site, there's lots of stuff you can learn from there.

I too am a beginner and I made armwarmers as my first project a week ago. If you just use a knitting needle (blunt with big eye) or a crochet hook it is easy to just attach the two. Good luck!! Im making more soon. they are great.
