Teeny Tiny Glove

Would you believe that less than one week after making the teeny tiny mitten that I lost it? I wish I could show you pictures of these cute little hand accessories side by side, but you will just have to compare it to pictures from the previous post.

  • Knitting Needles: 4 dpn Size 1 (2.5 mm)
  • Yarn: Hand dyed KnitPicks Palette yarn
  • Gauge: Not important for the completed project
  • Misc: yarn needle.
  • Finished Size: ~1 inch tall


Cast on 16 stitches. Join to knit in the round (taking care not to twist your stitches)
Rounds 1-5: Knit across the whole row
Round 6: K7, M1, K2, M1, K7 (18 sts)
Round 7: Knit across
Round 8: K7, M1, K4, M1, K7 (20sts)
Round 9: K8, slip 4 stitches onto waste yarn (or another needle) to hold for the thumb, K8 (16 sts)
Rounds 10: Knit across
The body of the glove is now complete. Continue below to create the fingers and thumb.

Finishing instructions for the thumb and fingers
  • Thumb: Knit 2 icord rows with the 4 stitches set aside for the thumb. Cut yarn, pull through the stitches to form the tip of the thumb.
  • Fingers: Each finger will be made form a 4-stitch icord (like the thumb.) Starting with the stitches closest to the thumb, take two stitches off of each needle.

    Work icord for 2 rows, then pull yarn through remaining stitches. Continue for the remaining 3 fingers, taking 2 stitches from each knitting needle to form each finger.

    The stitches have been reorganized to create the last two fingers of the tiny knit glove.
  • Weave in all loose ends. and Enjoy your teeny tiny knit glove!

There are a few loose ends to weave in when you're at the end of this knitting pattern.

You cannot really appreciate how tiny this glove is until you compare it to your hand or to a dime. It is just so cute!
