Take your gloves to the 21st century! Now you can use your favorite touch-sensitive device and keep your hands toasty warm at the same time when you add Boye® SensaThread™ conductive filament to the fingertips. Techniques are included to either crochet Boye® SensaThread™ right into the fingertips or to stitch it on after gloves are completed.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Abbreviations:

    beg = beginning; ch = chain; in = inch(es)rep = repeat; rem = remain(ing); rnd = round; RS = Right Side; sc = single crochet; sk = skip; sl st = slip stitch; st(s) = stitch(es); WS = wrong side

Sizes:

    Two sizes are given for the basic glove pattern. For intermediate sizes or a custom fit, change length as desired and/or use a larger or smaller hook to change gauge.

    To determine size, measure circumference of hand just above thumb
    Small/Medium (Large/X-Large)
    7 (9) in [18 (23) cm]

Materials Needed:

Gauge:

    24 sc = 4 in/10 cm. Take time to check gauge.

    Next Rnd: Sl first 5 (6) and last 5 (6) sts from holder back onto dp needles. Join yarn and pick up 2 sts at base of Ring Finger, pm between the two picked up sts to mark beg of rnd. – 12 (14) sts for Middle Finger
    Divide sts evenly among 3 dp needles. Work even until Middle Finger measures about 2.75 (3) in [7 (7.6) cm] or to desired length.
    Next (Dec) Rnd: Finish as for other fingers.

    NOTE: Before beginning Index Finger or Thumb, review the information at the end of this pattern to determine the best way to apply Boye® SensaThread™ conductive filament to your project.

    Index Finger
    Next Rnd: Place rem 10 (12) sts onto 3 dp needles. Join yarn and pick up 2 sts at base of Middle Finger, pm between two picked up sts for beg of rnd – 12 (14) sts for Index Finger. Continue as for Ring Finger or follow directions below for knitted-in conductive filament.

    Thumb
    Place 13 (15) gusset sts onto 3 dp needles. Join yarn and pick up one st on edge of palm, pm for beg of rnd – 14 (16) sts . Knit until Thumb measures about 2.25 (2.5) in [5.7 (6.4) cm] or to desired length. Finish as for other fingers or follow directions below for knitted-in conductive filament.

Finishing:

    Weave in all ends. Lightly steam if desired. Apply conductive filament if it was not knitted-in.

Technique For Knitting Boye®SensaThread™ Conductive Filament Into Gloves

    To be effective, the conductive filament must be on the outer surface of the finger tips, not buried in the stitches. Knit a swatch to be sure that the knitted-in method works for your yarn. For medium weight yarn, you may need to use a double strand of filament.

    Follow the directions as given in the pattern for the Index Finger and Thumb until they are .75 in (2 cm) shorter than the desired finished length, then follow the instructions below to add Boye® SensaThread™.

    Glove 1

    Begin working flat at this point.

    Index Finger
    Hold 1 or 2 strands of conductive filament together with working yarn.
    Row 1: K 6 (7) holding conductive filament and yarn together, drop conductive filament to WS side, K last 6 (7) sts with yarn only.
    Row 2: P 6 (7) with yarn only, P 6 (7) holding conductive filament and yarn together.
    Repeat previous two rows once more. With yarn only, finish as for other fingers and sew side seam to close finger tip.

    Thumb
    Hold 1 or 2 strands of conductive filament together with working yarn. (Begin working flat at this point.)
    Row 1: K 7 (8) holding conductive filament and yarn together, drop conductive filament to WS side, K last 6 (7) sts with yarn only.
    Row 2: P 6 (7) with yarn only, P 7 (8) holding conductive filament and yarn together.
    Repeat previous two rows once more. With yarn only, finish as for other fingers and sew side seam to close finger tip.

    Glove 2

    Index Finger
    Follow directions above except work stitches with yarn and conductive filament held together on last 6 (7) sts.

    Thumb
    Follow directions above except work stitches with yarn and conductive filament held together on last 7 (8) sts.

Technique For Stitching Boye®SensaThread™ Conductive Filament Onto Completed Gloves

    Duplicate Stitch or Cross Stitch
    Complete gloves then embroider approximately six stitches horizontally and four rows on finger tips. Work loosely so conductive filament is not buried in the yarn. Fasten off and weave in ends.
