Super easy wrist warmers, fingerless gloves
An excellent project for beginners!

Materials: 75-100 grms yarn  and needles to match gauge

Gauge: Approx 5 sts = 1" in K2, P2 rib, slightly stretched

Directions: CO 38 sts.
Row 1: * K2, P2, repeat from * to end of row, ending with K2
Row 2: * P2, K2, repeat from * to end of row, ending with P2
Repeat these two rows until piece measures 7" or desired length.
Cast off loosely.(when casting off, knit the sts as presented, it makes
for a neater cast off)

Sew 1" down from top and 3" up from bottom, leaving the remaining 3"
open for thumb. Weave in ends.
(if you make these longer, sew down 1" from the top, leave a 3" space
open and sew down the rest)

Can't be easier!
When you get used to this pattern, you can change stitch
For example, knit 4" in rib and the rest in stocking stitch, add
cables..but that will be another pattern!!

What size needle do I use. This is a beginner pattern and I am a real beginner and have no clue how to do the gauge thing.
Thank you

try worsted weight yarn an 4mm needles - that should work!

I know the comments were old, but: Most yarn has a "recommended needle size" chart thingie on the paper that wraps around each skein. For knitting it usually shows a picture of two crossed knitting needles, and for crochet it has a picture of a crochet needle. Most yarn I've seen lists the mm and the US size needle they recommend on that particular yarn.

I'm a beginner too, and YouTube has been a HUGE help watching tutorials on how to do stitches, and casting on and off etc. I am trying a different type of cast on with these, that I found a video to, called a German twisted long tail cast on. Took me a while to get the hang of it, but it's supposedly stretchy. and for ribbed knits. (thanks to iknitwithcatfur for the slow clear tutorial on how to do that one! Hers was the only video I could wrap my brain around.)

2 needle fingerless gloves

This is an easy pattern that can be adapted according to your skill.
I used worsted weight yarn and US 5 needles.
You need just over 50gms of yarn.
I also found that knitting them both at the same times ensures that they bout turn out the same !

Cast on 42 sts
Knit 20 rows in k2 p2 rib
on the 20th row place markers this way:
k20 place marker, k2, place marker, k20
the 2 sts between the markers will form the increase for the thumb.

Switch to stocking stitch (1 row K - right side- 1 row P - wrong side)
Knit to marker, (20 sts)
knit twice in the next stitch and in the one after that (the sts between the markers)
next row and all wrong side rows, Purl
Knit 20 sts (you have reached the marker)
knit twice in next stitch, K2 (till next marker) and K twice in the stitch before the marker

Continue this way, always increasing a stitch at each marker till you have 16sts between the markers.
