i don't have a pattern, but i have knit gloves, from finger tips down, in simple double knitting.

here is an outline of the process.

simple double knitting--cast on even # of stitches,
every row, *K1, bring yarn forward (as if to purl), s1, bring yarn back (as for knit stitch)**

step1 -fingers
cast on multiple of 8 +4,  divide stitches evenly onto 2 DPN's.

fold knitting, *K1 from needle1, s1 from needle 2, (moving yarn as in described in basic double knitting) until all stitches are on a single needle

work in simple double knitting till finger is long enough.
break yarn, make second finger,

(repeat till all 4 fingers have been knit)do not break yarn on last finger.)

(work thumb (on a different set of needles, and leave aside till needed)
Step 2 hand
Join fingers together, by working in simple double knitting.
BUT put first(2) and last (2) stitch of each finger (expect first stitch on first finger and last stitch on last finger!) onto stitch holder -(these stitches will be sew/grafted as finishing to make joint
between finger)

(this sound harder than it acutally is..)
knit palm.

thumb and gusset)
add thumb, (at 'side seam'
decrease after thumb
(gusset needs to be worked (along a side seam (first few stitches in row) almost like a cable (k1, (place slip stich onto cable needle, return knit stitch to left needle, K2tog
Return Slip stich to left needle (at the end of next row, these 2 stitches (slipped in previous row, will be Ktog, (which will re-establish K1, S1 order of stitches)

decrease in set of 2 rows of decreases, 2 rows no decrease till most of thumb stitches are gone (about 90%--the actual # will depend on your yarn, and gauge, 

(if useing sports weight yarn, your might have 12 stitches per finger, but with fingering weight, you might have 20 (2 sets of 8, +4)

work even after gusset for 1 to 3 inches, make cuff of ribbing.


end at cuff.
