Half Finger Gloves

Half Fingerless Gloves

Pink Knifty Knitter Long Loom
Purple Dividers 2
Crochet Hook
Crafter Needle
1 Skein of Yarn

C: Cast On
K: Knit
P: Purl
D: Decrease
CO: Cast Off


Starting at one end and using a divider to make room for 8 pegs to be worked with for a single finger.
Row 1-10(Index Finger): C8, K8 for 10 rows Cut yarn and move stitch on divider to ones side or the other. Turn divider around and add the other divider to make room for 8 pegs to be worked with.
Row 1-10 or 15(Middle Finger): C8, K8 for 10-15 rows depending on your preference. Cut yarn and move stitches from dividers to one side or the other to open dividers to work on the next 8 pegs for the ring finger. Flip one divider around closest to the middle finger and then add the other divider where the next 8 pegs are to be worked on.
Row 1-10 (Ring Finger): C8, K8 for 10 rows. Cut yarn and move the stitches from dividers to one side or the other to open up dividers to work on the next 8 pegs for the pinky. Flip the divider closest to the ring finger, and the second divider is now no longer needed.
Row 1-7 (Pinky Finger): C8, K8 for 7 rows. Move stitch on divider to one side or the other and remove divider from loom.  Now is the start of working the rest of the glove, so we will start to work circular around the whole loom, note do not cut yarn just continue in the direction you were going.
Don't worry about all the loose ends they will be used to sew up the crevice of the fingers when done.

  2. I decided to post a more clear question I am into my second finger, and the dang boyle long looms are different by an eenisy lil bit
    I also have knifty knitter dividers, which dont fit snug all the time.. Anyway. im havin a heck of a time with the video because I cannot see your hands.. I stink at reading patterns so I need the video help.
    I am trying to follow your pattern and I am on the middle finger and you say it is hecka tight, well luckily mine isnt too crazy the first one I thought I was gonna break pegs it was so tight. Am I following properly? And for the record its not 1:09 am it is 10:50pm...
    Thank you Kelleigh

    1. I apologize for not getting back to you sooner I had an emergency this morning. Um looking at the video and all it is easy when doing that type of knit to get it too tight and makes it difficult to move loops to one side or the other. All I can see that you miss on the video is me moving the dividers.
      A way I keep my knit like this looser is by tossing over bottom loop and pulling in the tossed loop towards the center of the loom a little bit to pull on the the loop you just made. Or the other option is to lightly place yarn over when tossing bottom loop over.
      You could try the other knit style which is the opposite of a purl, you place yarn above existing loop take hook put through loop pull yarn from top through it and pull off peg and put back on.
      Couple suggestions let me know if this helps. I'm not good at reading patterns either so I feel you there. My reason for trying to make video, I learn best that way.

    2. Yes But some pegs are bending my hook switched back to knifty knitter hook shorter tip.. which helped especially on the dividers.
      Now I have a new problem the boyle smallest loom is blue and not long enough to fit four fingers on it only three any way to save the fingers?

  3. I got it figured out with my daughter, but I broke a peg. Ill get these dang things made

    1. Oh no, on breaking a peg, do the Boyle pegs have replacements kinda like the Martha Stewart looms? Sorry to hear about the peg but great news on getting it figured out!!! :-)

  4. Hi! How would you make these gloves for a man? I tried to slide the divider out one more space~so instead of 8 pegs per finger it was 10! That made a glove big enough for a bear!!!! Lol!!!

    1. Sometimes even using 3 strands of yarn can make the gloves bigger without really having to do anything different. I made some out of the handspun lions brand yarn and it fit my fiance. So it could vary on the yarn as well.

  5. Is there an alternate solution for the dividers?? I can't buy them here in Canada. I'm looking forward to making these..

    1. Try this link, it may be gloves but it gives you an idea of shortening your rows and doing a regular cast on for making them like this.
      Plus just released a new book which has half finger gloves pattern in it.

  6. Hi - I really would like to make a pair of these gloves but can't find the dividers anywhere!!

    1. Ebay is the location to find them. They are a discontinued product but many are still finding them on ebay. Type in "Knifty Knitter Loom Clips" in the search and they should come up.
