How to Knit Fingerless Gloves (with Yarn!)

fingerless gloves rainbow loom

This was our first attempt at knitting a pair of gloves, and we think they turned out great! We used Craft Life’s tutorial to make them. They are perfect for chilly autumn days!

If you want to make these, set aside 1-2 hours.

          Ya I know how it is!
          It does get pretty cold here but it never snows… Just rains!
          That’s why we all call it Strange South Carolina weather!

        Hi Kitty, my school is also having a Christmas fair and I am running a loom band stall. I suggest you actually make loom bands, and then you can make presents, Christmas trees, snowmen, bells, crackers and angels out of loom band like me. My favourite is the bell, it takes about ten minutes and only 49 yellow bands and 13 red bands. Since this is actually something I made up myself, and so I don’t have a link, I will tell you how to make it.

        You’ll need: 49 yellow bands, 13 red bands, an S Clip or C Clip, a loom or monster tail and a hook

        Step 1: Take your loom. Place single yellow bands twisted in the middle around the edges of your monster tail, or the first four middle pegs and three edge pegs on either side for your loom, without going near the middle.

        Step 2: Place single yellow bands with no twist on top of all the others. This is layer 2.

        Step 3: Loop up the bottom two yellow bands from each peg, taking the in towards the middle.

        Step 4: Place single yellow bands with no twist on top of the remaining two bands on each peg, so you now have four on each peg. This is layer 3.

        Step 5: Loop up the bottom two yellow bands, taking them in towards the middle. A web pattern will start to form in the middle.

        Step 6: Continue placing and looping bands until you have placed layer 7 and looped layer 6. Now you will take the two bands from every peg onto your hook, making sure they don’t slip off the pegs in the process. Slide a single yellow band through them all, and keep it on your hook.

        Step 7: Now switch to your red bands. Use your hook and make a single chain going up the way. Once you have used all 13 bands, S Clip or C Clip the end.

        Step 8: Attach the other end of the S or C Clip to a couple of bands from the top of the bell. Adjust some bands around the bottom and squeeze your bell to a perfect shape.

        Ta da! You now have a simple bell you can make in ten minutes, and they are great for hanging on the Christmas tree! If I didn’t explain this very well, just reply to this with your question. Hope this helped!

          Hi Kitty, here is something else you could do: Christmas bracelets! You can use leather and plait them, or use thread and make strings of beads and charms. Or use loom bands! Hope this helped, The Next Step

      Diy lip balm! It’s getting windy outside and that means that there are a lot of people with chapped lips. Since I don’t know how to post a link I will just type the instructions in:
      what you need:
      Vaseline or petroleum jelly (they’re the same)
      eyeshadow (don’t use blue or green.Those aren’t safe for lips)
      paper bowls
      something to stir(Popsicle sticks, metal spoon,etc.)
      a microwave
      a lip gloss pot (I found a 24 pack at Walmart for $8.99 near the beads)
      Step 1
      Put about 1 tablespoon of Vaseline into the paper bowl
      Step 2
      microwave it for about 2 minutes 50 seconds or until melted completely
      Step 3
      take an oven mitt and take the liquid Vaseline out of the microwave
      Step 4
      mix about a teaspoon of eyeshadow into the bowl (maybe red for the holidays. BTW,It won’t come out whatever color it is. It’s clear)
      Step 5
      stir until there aren’t any clumps of eyeshadow in the mix
      (if it hardened a little, microwave it for 10 to 30 seconds)
      Step 6
      pour into the container(put the container on a paper plate it may spill out of it)
      Step 7
      put in the freezer overnight
      Let me know if you had any questions about it. I hope this works for you and you make a lot of profits with it!

    I made these today. A little hard at first but after one that was very misshapen I got the hang of it. I deal with fibromyalgia and they keep my hands warm so they don’t ache as much

  8. shortleaf says:

    I would love to make these when I have the time. I love the color of yarn that you used! What color and what brand is this yarn, LoomLove?

  9. Marla says:

    Hi there, love the glove pattern for my daughter. Was wondering how I could make these for an adult hand? Would I just increase from 8 pegs?
    Thank you, and love your tutorials, Marla

    i would love to make this, but i have only got dull colours of yarn. i might pop to our local craft shop someday and buy a wider variety of yarn. i simply love the styels and colours on CraftLife and LoomLove’s projects of these gloves.
    from sophie (also can be called soph)

  14. Lily says:

    Hey, loom love. I have a question: why don’t you post as many band tutorials anymore? πŸ™ ????

  15. Liliana says:

    Wow, this is great LoomLove. In Illinois it is so cold this year and making fingerless gloves was the best thing I ever saw randomly on google. Great job! ;D
