DIY Fingerless Gloves

So I made these cool and casual diy fingerless gloves and I’m thinking I’m crazy, right? After all,  I can crochet and knit and I have access to absolutely the most yummy yarns ever. But then I realize there are so many practical uses for these- so many casual times. When we need just a little bit of warmth or even protection. They can go through heavy washes. What about cold nights out on the soccer field? They are definitely snug enough that you don’t have to keep pulling them on. They are made from socks!

My husband suggested using them when you’re doing mechanical work or out for a run. Any gardeners out there in the early morning that may encounter a little cool weather? These would be absolutely perfect. Just think, they get a little bit wet and you always have another pair in your pocket because really…. How many pairs of long socks do we discard that are still good to use in some other way? So, yes, I do make really pretty ones and I do have really pretty ones and some really cool ones my husband got me for Christmas. But, there are times that I really do not want to wear the pretty or fun ones out to the playground or out in my garden.
And guess what. My husband got new socks for Christmas so I just got about 15 pair of socks to do more fingerless gloves. To diy fingerless gloves, all you need is a few minutes and a pair of scissors. If I launder them in a lingerie bag, maybe the washer will not eat them. Now, what to do with the bottom? I thought about turning them inside out and dusting my picture frames with them. What would you do with the bottoms?

So, here’s how I made them.

Get a pair of long socks that no one else minds you cutting up. I highly suggest asking just to be sure. We may call them old and faded while someone else calls them soft and perfect. The socks must be calve length or taller. Ankle socks will just not work as this project requires the ribbed portion.

Get your scissors and cut along the ribbing to separate the ribbing from the “foot.” The top of the sock is the opening that covers your hand and knuckles. Once you’ve cut both socks, measure down the length with 3 fingers from the top of the sock to mark where start your cut. You can use chalk, your photographic memory, or make a teeny little snip like I did.

Now cut a slit length wise that is approximately the width of 2 fingers. This is a slit your thumb will slide through.

Note: It is better to make a smaller cut than a larger cut as you can always make larger later. I had to do this with mine as I just wanted a little bit more room then I originally thought. If you cut it too long, it may not stay on your hand as well and the edges will roll up over your hand and roll into the palm of your hand. Ask me how I know this.

Repeat this with the second one to complete your pair. Ta-da! You’ve made your very own diy fingerless gloves!
