I made this pair of fetching gloves for the editor-and-chief of my highschool newspaper. They're going to be her graduation gift.

I used Reynolds Lite-Lopi. It's 100% virgin wool and the first natural yarn I've ever used! yay! The color is more red than it looks in the pictures. It looks extra brown in the pictures for some reason.

I love the fetching fingerless glove pattern but I thought I'd love it a little more with fingers. When making them, I first looked for an already established method but found none, so here is my method.

You will be at the point where one would start the picot bind off, but instead of doing that, you put all your stitches on a piece of waste yarn.

Then, take a double pointed needle(dpn) and put the first 5 stitches(st) of the round onto the dpn. Then you take another dpn and put the last 6 sts of the row onto that 2nd dpn. You start knitting your first 5 sts. You'll then cast on 2 sts. Then you start knitting the 6 sts from the 2nd dpn.


You'll divide the 13 sts amoung 3 dpn evenly and continue knitting in the round.

I work each finger in stockinette stitch and add 1x1 ribbed edge. So you'll knit your first finger(index) until you reach the point where you'll want into end in a few rows and then you'll work in 1x1 rib until you bind-off.

For the middle and ring finger you'll pick up 6 sts from each side. You'll cast on 2 sts like the index finger, but when you reach the end of the 2nd set of 6 sts, you'll pick up 2 sts  from the edge of the finished index finger (if working on the middle finger. when working on the ring finger you'll pick up two sts from the finished middle finger). After picking up those 2 sts, you'll be at the end of the round. You'll continue knitting in the round like you did for the index finger with the same stockinette and ribbing.

For the pinky you pick up the remaining stitches on the waste yarn (should be 10 sts). You'll knit the 10 and pick up 2 sts on the edge of the ring finger. After these picked up sts, you'll be at the end of the round. For the pinky you won't cast on any sts. You'll continue knitting in the same way you knitted the other fingers.
