Here is how I turned a project that was originally going to be a twisted rib soaker into fingerless gloves...
Needles: US Size 4 straight & US size 3 dpn's
Gauge: No idea, shouldn't matter. I knit loose, but this seemed a bit tight for me due to the soft merino yarn.
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted
On size 4 straight needles, alternate knit cast on & purl cast on for 52 sts (or to desired length of glove).
Row 1: Ktbl1, P1 across
Row 2: K1, Ptbl1 across
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until work measures the desired length. The desired length of the work will be the circumference of your palm at it's widest part.
Alternate knit cast off & purl cast off.
Leaving a hole for the thumb, seam the cast on edge to the cast off edge with the right side together (I like the twisted knits to be the right side). I seamed 7 twisted knit "rows" together for the palm-to-thumb distance. Then seamed 13 twisted knit "rows" together for the arm-to-thumb distance.
Turn work right side out.
On size 3 dpn's pick up 29 sts around the thumb hole. Distribute the sts as follows: 9 parallel to length of glove, 10 perpendicular to length of glove, and 9 parallel to length of glove.
Round 1: Ktbl19, turn & wrap for a short row (K10, then turn & wrap to go back). Ktbl10, K2tog, Ktbl4 turn & wrap for a short row (K15, K2tog, K4, then turn & wrap to go back). Ktbl20, K2tog, Ktbl3.
Round 2: P4, P2tog, P24.
Round 3: Ktbl2, Ktbl2tog, Ktbl2, Ktbl2tog, Ktbl11 turn & wrap for a short row (K10, then turn & wrap to go back). Ktbl10, K2tog, Ktbl1, Ktbl2tog, Ktbl2, Ktbl2tog, Ktbl1 (25sts plus one wrap).
Round 4: P2tog, P1, P2tog, P2tog, *P1, P2tog repeat from * till end (20sts).
Round 5:Work ktbl cast off.
On size 3 dpn's, pickup sts around the top of the glove (I started at the seam and worked counter clockwise to keep the first twisted knit "row" visible).
Put glove on hand. Thread yarn thru work in between fingers to mark where joins will be.
Round 1: Work knit cast off until halfway around opening (ignoring threaded yarn). Work knit cast off until next threaded yarn. Work the "join" by slipping as if to knit the chevron of the farside stitch then do the same for the next live stitch on the left needle. K2tog, then cast off. Work knit cast off until next threaded yarn marking & work the join as above. Repeat for the last threaded yarn marking. Finish casting off till end.
Repeat for other hand.
