My coworkers love glittens because they have to go outside a lot, but they still need to grasp things like bolts and stuff.

Awesomesauce! I have "glittens" (loving the word coinage) but they're form a shop and really plain....definitely gonna try this when I have some spare time (and fleece). Thanks for the tutorials, all the pictures make it really easy to follow.  Smiley

These are really awesome!

I had an idea to make the thumb insertion easier. I noticed that you put the long seam under the arm, and then cut the slit for the thumb...what it you sewed the seam from the hand side up to where you wanted the thumb, sewed on the thumb, and then sewed up the rest of the seam? let's see if i can draw what I mean on paint....



You would sew the red line, then the thumb to the sleeve at the purple, then sew the green lines together...Does that make sense??

hmm im not sure if i did what you mean, but for the first ones i made(purple & black striped), the thumb was on the seam. im not sure why but it was puffier around where i sewed. Do you mean sew the thumb in while it's still open ? I can see how that might work

love is a verb, not a noun.

God is Good. God is Love.

exactly Smiley sew the thumb in while the sleeve is still open, then sew the rest of the seam closed, including the seam to close the thumb...like you do with children's shirts and sleeves. You sew the sleeves to the body first, and then sew the side and underarm seams

I actually have a small store bought knit pair that I love but the fingers are too bulky and get caught on my wedding ring. I think I may have to make some of these!
