Fingerless gloves are another great quick knitting project. Using super-bulky yarn, I whipped this pair in just a couple of hours for my niece. I plan on making a couple of more pairs as gifts.
These are bottom-up gloves…so, you start by making a small wrist cuff and knit up toward the fingers. If you’d like to knit these gloves, you can follow the simple pattern below.

Pick up and knit additional 5(6, 6) stitches from base of where thumb and hand meet. Be sure to keep these stitches tight so that no holes appear in your work.
