Modfications

Here are the modifications for my Endpaper Mitts, aka Sunny Surf Gloves, which is the name of my project on ravelry. I did not creat the chart or anything to do with the hand of  this glove. The original pattern was designed by Eunny Jang. Below are instructions on how to make fingers the way that I did.

After working chart B, the pattern instructs you to work chart A once more. After that, try on your mitt/glove. If the live stitches are higher than where your pinky and ring finger join, you should probably rip back a few rows. If the live stitches don’t come up high enough, you should knit until it is high enough. These instructions are written assuming you worked one repeat of chart A after chart B. If you had to knit more or less rows, treat the next row of the chart as the first row of the chart so that the pattern lines up.

If these instructions are unclear, please leave a comment and I will correct it.

Abbreviations

  • MC – main color
  • CC – contrast color
  • K – knit
  • P – purl
  • K2tog – Knit two together
  • st – stitch

 

Pinky: Knit 7 sts in pattern, then set next 42 sts aside. Pick up and purl 1 st in MC. Pick up and knit 1 st in MC. Knit next 6 sts in pattern, purl 1 MC. (Note: I worked the first 7 stitches using the first 7 stitches of Chart A. After the picked up purl stitch, I needed to pick up one stitch, then knit 6 then purl one. The stitch that I picked up and knit using MC was the first stitch of the first 7 sts of chart A going in the opposite direction. It doesn’t matter for the pinky, since the first 7 sts of the chart are symmetrical, but it’ll matter for the other fingers.) Continue to work these 16 sts as set (7 sts chart A, purl 1 MC, 7 sts chart A going in the opposite direction, purl 1 MC) for 18 rounds total. (including the first round of the pinky. You should have worked through the chart one full time, and have just finished row 8 of the chart your second time through it.)

Next round: k2tog CC, k2tog MC, k 1 CC, k2tog MC, p1 MC, k2tog MC, K1 CC, K2 tog MC, K2 tog CC, P1 MC.

Next round: K2tog MC, K2tog CC, P1MC, K2tog CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC.

Thread both strands through the stitches, pull tight and weave in ends inside.

 

Ring: The ring finger starts with the 7th stitch of chart A and ends with the 13th stitch. It is easiest to rewrite just these stitches of the chart onto graph paper. When I refer to the “chart” for the ring finger, I am talking about these stitches. Transfer the next 6 sts to needle. Pick up 1 st before the first st on needle and knit it with MC (1st st of chart). Work chart over next 6 sts. Pick up and purl 1 st in MC. Skip the next 29 held sts, and place the last 7 sts onto needle. Work chart (remembering to go backwards) over these 7 sts. Pick up and purl 1 st in MC. Continu working stitches as set (7 sts chart, p1 MC, 7 sts chart, p1 MC) for a total of 26 rows.

Next row: K2tog MC, K1 CC, K2tog MC, K2tog CC, P1 MC, K2tog CC, K2 tog MC, K1 CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC

Next Row: K2 tog MC, K2 tog CC, P1 MC, K2tog CC, K2 tog MC, P1 MC

Thread both strands through the stitches, pull tight and weave in ends inside.

 

Middle:  The chart for the middle finger starts with the 13th stitch of chart A and ends with the 20th stitch. Again, it is easiest to rewrite just these stitches of the chart onto graph paper. When I refer to the “chart” for the middle finger, I am talking about these stitches. Transfer the next 7 held stitches and the 7 held stitches opposite these to needles. Pick up and knit 1 st in CC (this is the first stitch of your chart) work chart across next 7 sts, pick up and purl 1 st in MC , pick up and knit 1 st CC (the first stitch of your chart going backwards), work chart across 7 sts, pick up and purl 1 st in MC. Continue working stitches as set (8 sts chart, p 1MC, 8 sts chart, p 1MC) for a total of 31 rows.

Next row: K2tog MC, K2tog CC, K2tog MC, K2togCC, P1 MC, K2tog CC, K2 tog MC, K2tog CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC

Next Row: K2tog CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC, K2tog MC, K2tog CC, P1 MC

Thread both strands through the stitches, pull tight and weave in ends inside.

 

Index: The index finger is worked over the last 7 stitches of chart A. Transfer all the remaining stitches to needles. Work chart over 7 sts, P1 MC, work chart over 7 sts, pick up and purl 1 st in MC. Work chart for 26 rows total.

Next Row: K2tog CC, K2tog MC, K1 MC, K2tog CC, P1 MC, K2tog CC, K1 MC, k2tog CC, P1 MC

Next Row: K2tog MC, K2 tog CC, P1 MC, K2tog CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC

Thread both strands through the stitches, pull tight and weave in ends inside.

Thumb: The chart for the thumb is hardest to re-write your self, so I have it here. Place held thumb stitches onto needles. Pick up one stitch before the start of these stitches and work it and first 9 stitches in chart. P1 MC, Work chart backwards over next 9 stitches. Pick up 1 stitch and work in in chart. Pick up and purl 1 st in MC. Work chart for a total of 20 rows.

Next round: K2tog CC, K1 MC, K2tog CC, K2 tog MC, K1 CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC, K2tog MC, K1 CC, K2 tog MC, K2 tog CC, K1 MC, K2 tog CC, P1 MC

Next Round: K2tog MC, K2 tog CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC, K2tog MC, K2tog CC, K2tog MC, P1 MC

Thread both strands through the stitches, pull tight and weave in ends inside.
