Bofur's Fingerless Gloves
You will need:
50-60 grams of bulky weight yarn
US8 (5.00 mm) circular needle, long enough for magic loop or traveling loop. Mine was 29 inches. You can also use DPNs if you like.
Row counter (optional; I didn't have one, but I wish I had)
Gauge: 5 stitches = 1 inch in moss stitch
Cast on 23 stitches on US8 needles. Divide to join in the round, being careful not to twist
Round 1: *Knit 1, Purl 1, repeat around from *
Round 2: *Purl 1, Knit 1, repeat around from *
Repeat rounds 1 and 2 six more times, for a total of fourteen rounds. Repeat round 1 once more.
Turn work and repeat Round 1 eight times, knitting flat so as to create the thumb hole.
Rejoin in the round
Rounds 24, 26, and 28: Repeat Round 2
rounds 25 and 27: Repeat Round 1
Bind off loosely. Weave in ends and wear with subtle nerdy delight!
