DR WHO Style Fingerless Gloves

I recently knitted 2 Dr Who Scarves; one for a dear friend called Phill who now lives in Canada and mini version for Rob, aka him indoors :-)
It seemed only right to design a pattern for matching gloves, so here it is and here's what they look like:

The pattern is as follows:


3mm needles and DK wool in the following colours: GREEN, YELLOW, RED, PURPLE, GREY, TAN & BROWN.


Cast on 46 sts

Using your first colour, K1 P1 Rib for 10 rows, then change colour and St-St 38 rows, making sure to change colours to get your stripes - I did: 8 Yellow, 6 Red, 4 Purple, 10 grey, 4 tan, 8 brown. Then K2 P2 rib for 30 rows, I did this in the green. You can do the stripes whatever thickness and in whatever order you like. Just keep in mind that the first rib is 10 rows, the finishing off rib is 30 rows and the st-st in the middle is 38 rows of whatever you like. Cast off loosely, (I use a larger needle) this helps keep the glove entrance wide enough to push your hand through.


sew up the seam from both the bottom and top, leaving a hole for your thumb to go through - that's it! Simple ;-)

Rob loves 'em!

I found you on Ravelry and ADORE the gloves. If I may, what brand did you use? If it was listed and I over looked it, I'm sorry. :) Thanks!

Found you on Ravelry. Am about to atempt these gloves for my my God Son. I'll let you know how they go.

Is it wrong to be ridiculously pleased with my efforts and want to keep them? Followed pattern but included crocheting around the thumb hole.
Thanks heaps.

I made these and they turned out brilliantly! Thanks for the pattern! Do you have a pattern for the scarf?
