Mrs. Buchanan gloves are simple, elegant, and perfect for chilly days when other gloves or mittens are too heavy. The cuff is knit flat, and the hand is worked by picking up stitches along the edge of the cuff, then knitting in a round. They are easily customizable to fit hands and fingers of any length, and are a great opportunity to use buttons you love. Uses fingering weight yarn.

#4. Men’s Modified Army Gloves Free Knitting Pattern
This is a modified version of the “Gloves for Service Men” published by the American Red Cross. I knitted those gloves, and while I liked the pattern, I realised a lot of knitters were having problems with the instructions, usually resulting in very large or misshaped gloves. So I clarified and modified the instructions to give a pleasing result while trying to stay close to the original pattern. Uses worsted weight yarn
Now that the pattern works, these are great basic gloves!

#10. Knotty Glove Free Knitting Pattern
A basic glove pattern fitting women’s L (or men’s S). The cable on the wrist adds some interest but can be left out if you don’t feel like doing cables.
Downsizing: use a gauge of 36sts/4inches to get a women’s M (17cm circumference).
To make the cable really pop out avoid multicolored yarns, stay with semi solids in light colors. The darker the yarn the less shadows the colorwork will have = the less it will be visible.
The cable pattern is included as a chart. Uses fingering weight yarn.
