Full Answer

After completing the initial row of 24 stitches, create 15 rows of rib stitches. The next 12 rows should be a stockinette stitch and should always end in a purl stitch with the every other stitch being a knit stitch. The next four rows should revert back to a rib stitch. Cut the yarn off and tie it with an 8-inch tail. Then, fold the piece of stitches in half and use a yarn needle to sew the two edges together.

The place where the two edges are sewn together will be the spot for the thumb hole of the fingerless glove. Match the other fingers together,sewing them using a yarn needle. The pieces will form the holes for the fingers. Trim any loose ends and pull or add any additional stitches if the finger holes are not big enough.

    How do you knit short rows?

    A:

    To knit short rows, knit up to the last three stitches on the existing row. Insert the right needle purlwise into the next stitch, and slip onto the needle. Bring the yarn to the front, and slip onto the left needle. Turn the work, and bring the yarn to the front to complete the wrap. Short-row wrap the next indicated stitch, and continue until all the short row shaping is complete. Knit the final two rows with the wrapped stitch.
