Looking for how-to vids/instructions for gloves

Hi all…

Several years ago I purchased the Knitting Help.com “Complete Web Site CD” specifically because it contained the video showing how to knit socks. I needed to[B] see[/B] how it was done, because I was unable to visualize it from instructions alone. I’m now looking for something like that for [B]gloves. [/B]There are endless patterns on the 'net for gloves, but I can’t visualize how it’s supposed to be done from the pattern alone. So I’m looking for either good [B]instructional vids[/B] showing how to knit regular (not fingerless) gloves from start to finish, like what was in the Knitting Help.com CD for socks, or else [B]detailed written how-to directions,[/B] not just patterns, that really explain what you’re supposed to be doing in a way that’s easy to understand. I’ve checked on YouTube and Google Videos and found nothing, only like 45 second or 2 minute vids about “fingerless” gloves, which I don’t want. I want to knit real gloves.

I’m totally willing to purchase a vid (or detailed how-to instructions/book) it doesn’t have to be free. I just want to know where to find it, because I’m not turning up anything.

Thanks in advance for any help!


As far as I know, there isn’t anything for knitting gloves, but they’re much simpler to knit than socks. Just find a pattern you like and ask for help. We’ll be happy to give you advice along the way.

I recently made gloves for the first time, and they went pretty well. The fingers go quickly, because they are so small in comparison to the hand. They are just fiddly, because of all the dpns.

I made a couple videos when working on my gloves, but they only show parts of the whole process.




Thanks so much for the video–what pattern did you use for your gloves? I always have trouble picking up stitches for the next finger and getting a hole there. I have knitted gloves before, but I’ve never been pleased with them because of the holes --maybe I’ve not used the right pattern.


I used a pattern from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2009.

The model gloves were knit with red yarn, but I prefer using light colors when knitting cables or lace. Just seems to show the detail better.

I have the same problem. It’s a pain, isn’t it?
I fixed the holes when I completed the gloves, by turning the gloves inside out, and running the loose ends through the holes to close them. Not perfect, but it was the best I could do.

Holes are sometimes just a normal part of picking up sts for fingers, thumbs or at the underarm of a sweater. What you can do is pick them up twisted or pick up an extra one or two where the gaps occur, then dec the extra sts on the next round. Then sew them up with the yarn ends.
