What is the total number of stitches in the pattern? To find the number of stitches , divide by 4 and that should give you a figure to start with for the fingers. Pinky finger doesn’t need the same number of stitches as the other stitches. so take the excess stitches from pinky and divide between the three fingers.In the pattern I provided at Knitting paradise, the man’s pattern had 10 stitches from front needle , casted on 2 for gusset, and 10 stitches from back needle for a total of 22 stitches for the first finger or index finger. The second finger gets 8 stitches from back needle, cast on 2 for gusset, 8 stitches from front needle and pick up 2 stitches from base of first finger for a total of 20 stitches. 3rd finger gets 7 stitches from back needle, 2 for gusset cast on, 7 stitches from front needle and picks up 2 from base of 2nd finger for gusset for a total of 18 stitches. Pinky finger gets 6 from back needle , 6 stitches from front needle and picks up 3 stitches from base of 3rd finger for a total of 15 stitches. This is with sock yarn, With worsted weights, the numbers are different. Hope this helps.
