It’s the season to be jolly! Let us celebrate. Let us sing, let us decorate, let us eat and drink our hearts out. Let us spend time together. Let us remind ourselves that life is worth living, and the cold and dark will not be with us forever.

Finally, the holidays are with us again. This year, the time has come so fast and it has turned our lives upside down. We may have been all stressed out throughout the year, but we have to take a step back, slow down and enjoy the rest of the holiday season. What does the holiday season really mean?

The holiday season may imply different things to different people, and that these different people celebrate different ones in different ways. For Christians, the holiday season or “Christmas” is the season of their tradition in celebrating the birth of their Savior on December 25. On some other people, the holiday season is generally considered, to begin with, the day after Thanksgiving and the end of the New Year's Day. Not everyone may have been doing the same meaning for Christmas, but there are exact same things everyone has been doing during the holiday season.

During the holiday season, we should make an effort to be together with our loved ones. The holiday season is the time to reconnect with your aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces. Thus, for us all, the holiday season is the time to make amendments and have a reunion with our family and relatives.

Alongside with the reunion, gift-giving will never be forgotten! This is not about promoting to be materialistic. The gifts should not be costly and big, there are things that can make you tell how much you love and appreciate them without purchasing an expensive item. Make them feel appreciated for your gifts!

It is better to give than to receive. A simple gesture for every good deed makes you experience the true meaning of the holiday season. With your kind actions, you might be others the opportunity of what they could have missed this holiday season.

Spread your positive vibrations! A positive attitude can bring out the best in you. Drop all your work-related activities and enjoy spending time with your friends and family.

Moreover, the holiday season will not be complete if there are no outdoor activities. Let us enjoy the snow! Take your family or be with your friends to sledding and skating. Enjoy yourself in front of a bonfire while enjoying your seasonal favorite jam. There are so many reasons to enjoy the holiday season.

However, you cannot enjoy the holidays without a winter glove. This is one of the essentials during the holiday season. Being fashionable during the holiday season might be a must, but it is a priority to have safety gloves during the cold holiday season.

Gloves are garment coverings for the whole hand. Gloves protect and comfort the hands against extreme cold temperatures and extremely hot temperatures. Gloves can be made with knitted or felted wool.

Sometimes, we may be in a dilemma in looking for the type of gloves to purchase or the best style to wear that suits you. However, gone are the days when we neglect to wear gloves because it does not fit the fashion trend. A knitted glove is one of the pairs that can make you stylish, it can keep you fit with the trend.

Hand and machine knitted fabrics are created through interlocking a series of loops using a needle. These knitted fabrics, including winter gloves, have a number of useful properties that can make everything suitable. The loop of the knitted winter gloves can stretch and mold to fit the size of your hands, moreover, it can trap air that can keep your hands warmer.

If you decide to create a woolly knitted gloves to keep your hands comfortable and insulated during the winter season, here are the simple steps that I have prepared for you.

Here are the materials that you need to create a pair of knitted winter gloves:

  • 1 ball of premier yarn
  • 25 millimeter (mm) double pointed knitting needles
  • About 16 stitches to 7.6 centimeters (cm) of gauge

You do not have to worry about the steps, they are for advanced beginner! You can easily catch up with the pattern.

Step 1: To start on the first glove, grab your knitting needle and cast on 40 stitches or a multiple of 5 stitches. Distribute the stitches to a 4 double pointed needles, begin to knit in the round.

            If you do not know how to cast on, here is a simple instruction:

            Step I. To make a cast-on stitch, make a loop with the yarn. Remind yourself to leave an           inch of tail for each stitch that you plan to cast on.

            Step II. Loop a section of the tail and pull it through your first loop. The slipknot formed by the second loop will be your first stitch, and then the first loop will provide the      tension.

            Step III. Insert the needle through the slipknot, and pull it tight. That is the first cast on        the first stitch.

           Step IV. Start the second stitch by holding the knitting needle with your right hand, with the knot of the first stitch facing away from you. Loop the tail around the left thumb, and then insert the needle into the front of the loop.

           Step V. Wrap the skein-side yarn around the tip of the knitting needle.

           Step VI. Fold the loop with your left hand over the tip of the needle and pull it tight. That     is the second cast on the second stitch.

           Step VII. Once you have done the cast on, there will be 10 stitches.

Step 2: Continue in the basic pattern, in the third (3rd) round, start with the thumb gusset. For the right glove on both sides of the third (3rd) stitch on the first needle, pick up one twisted stitch from the bar between.

Step 3: Do it thrice in every third round, thrice (3) in every second round, an increase one (1) stitch before and after the previously increased stitch.

Step 4: Knit another two rounds, and then slip the stitches of the thumb gusset on to a safety pin. For the left glove, the thumb gusset begins with the third last stitch of the fourth knitting needle. Cast on an additional stitch between the hand and the thumb for the thumb bar. Now, you have done 40 stitches.

Step 5: Knit around eight (8) stitches with the 40 stitches of the hand, then start with the little finger. Take the last four (4) stitches of the second knitting needle and the first five (5) stitches of the third knitting needle on to a separate needle.

Step 6: With a new ball of yarn, cast on two (2) bar stitches and divide these with the nine (9) stitches from the separate needle over three (3) needles and work fifteen (15) rounds in the basic pattern.

Step 7: By then, start the shaping. In every round, knit the last two stitches of every knitting needle together until there are four (4) to six (6) stitches left. Lastly, knit the last row tightly. Pull these stitches together, and the thread through the center, and sew this in.

Step 8: Using the old yarn, make another three (3) rounds with the remaining 31 stitches in the basic pattern, pick up the twisted one stitch from every bar stitch with an extra knitting needle. By then, start with the ring finger.

Step 9: For the bar between the ring and middle finger cast on two stitches, then divide the last 5 stitches of the 2nd needle, the two (2) bar stitches of the extra needle and the first four (4) stitches of the 3rd needle over three (3) needles and work 20 rounds in the basic pattern. With this step, you have finished the little finger.

Step 10: Cast on 2 stitches for the bridge between the middle and index finger. Pick up one (1) twisted stitch from every bar stitch between the ring and middle finger, divide five (5) stitches of the palm and back of the hand over three (3) knitting needles and work 22 rounds in the basic pattern.

Step 11: For the index finger pick up one (1) twisted stitch from every bar stitch between the middle and index finger and divide over (three) 3 needles. Work 20 rounds in the basic pattern.

Step 12: For the thumb take the 15 thumb gusset stitches onto the needles and pick up one (1) twisted stitch from before the thumb bar, one (1) stitch from the bar stitch and one (1) stitch after the bar. Divide the stitches over three (3) needles. In the following 2nd row before the bar, slip one, knit one, and pass slip stitch over, after the bar knit two together. In the following 2nd round knit together the bar stitch with the stitch before. Work 10 rounds with the remaining 15 stitches.

If you have decided to create a woolly knitted fingerless gloves to keep your hands warm during the cold holiday season, here are the simple steps that I have prepared for you.

Here are the materials that you need to create a pair of knitted winter gloves:

  • 1 ball of premier yarn
  • 45 millimeter (mm) knitting needles
  • 1 tapestry needle

You do not have to worry about the steps, they are for advanced beginner! You can easily catch up with the pattern.

Step 1: Cast on twenty-eight (28) stitches, do not forget to include the slip knot as the first stitch.

If you do not know how to cast on, here is a simple instruction:

            Step I. To make a cast-on stitch, make a loop with the yarn. Remind yourself to leave an           inch of tail for each stitch that you plan to cast on.

           Step II. Loop a section of the tail and pull it through your first loop. The slipknot formed by the second loop will be your first stitch, and then the first loop will provide the      tension.

           Step III. Insert the needle through the slipknot, and pull it tight. That is the first cast on        the first stitch.

           Step IV. Start the second stitch by holding the knitting needle with your right hand, with the knot of the first stitch facing away from you. Loop the tail around the left thumb, and then insert the needle into the front of the loop.

           Step V. Wrap the skein-side yarn around the tip of the knitting needle.

          Step VI. Fold the loop with your left hand over the tip of the needle and pull it tight. That     is the second cast on the second stitch.

           Step VII. Once you have done the cast on, there will be 10 stitches.

Step 2: The first four (4) rows of the pattern or ribbing should be laid nice and flat on the forearm. Knit one (1) stitch and bring the yarn back and forth, repeat this steps until the row is completed.

Step 3: Check whether your first row ended with a purl stitch or knit stitch. An odd number of stitches that is cast on will result in a knit stitch. If ever you achieved the knit stitch, ignore steps 4 and 5. If you achieved purl stitch, continue with the next step.

Step 4: Repeat the second step for three times. Do not alternate purling and knitting, this will result in a bump. Knit every row instead to allow the glove to stretch both ways. 

Step 5. Cast off, and then tie the yarn off. Cut the yarn, and pull the tail end through the last loop. Gently tug on the tail end to tighten the loop. Do not cut the tail end off.

Step 6: Fold the finished work in half through lengthwise. The cast on and cast off stitches should run up the side of your arm and palm. The side edges of the piece are now the top and bottom of your glove. Place your hand on the folded piece, with the top of your palm against the top edge. Take note where your thumb starts.

Step 7: Sew down the first two (2) inches of the glove. Thread the tail end onto a yarn needle. Keeping your work folded in half, whipstitch down the long, side edge until you reach your thumb.

Step 8: As the top part of the gloves has become long enough to reach the thumb, tie the yarn to itself and weave the tail end back up the seam. Trim the excess yarn off.

Step 9: Place the glove against your hand, and note where your wrist is or where the base of your thumb is. This will be about 5 inches, after that thread the bottom tail end of your work, and sew up the side of your glove using a whipstitch. Stop when you reach the wrist area or the base of your thumb.

Step 10: Lastly, have a hole in the side seam for your thumb. Weave the tail end back down a few inches, then cut the excess off.

Step 11: Repeat the steps for the second glove. You do not have to worry, these gloves are reversible. There is no left or right.

You do not have to worry! Gloves can be knitted for all sizes, in various patterns and in yarns of any thickness or structure. These basic instructions will provide you with all the information you need.

So much for the fashionable winter gloves, here are safety gloves for workers that are knitted. It is best to evaluate the work site with the potential hazards it entails. Hazards can come from the chemicals, abrasions, cuts, and extreme temperature, thus a safety glove is needed. 

The knit work gloves can keep your hands protected all day long, it does not have the discomfort that is caused by the irritating fabrics, rubbing seams and heavy materials. These are knitted with high performing yarns that can improve the strength, productivity, dexterity and cut resistance.

It is perfect for workers who use gloves every day, it has been proven to alleviate hand fatigue. These are lightweight and can keep the hands free of sweat. 

Nonetheless, you do not have to worry about how much this knit safety gloves costs, they are not expensive and are easily found in the market. It is not just functional but also, it is practical.
