Inspired by Claire's mitts/gloves from Outlander Season 5 (Seen worn by Claire in episode 10 'Mercy shall follow me') the apothecary fingerless gloves pattern will allow you to create an interesting slipped stitch design.

The main glove is knit flat and the thumb section is then knit in the round.


Aran/Worsted/10 Ply yarn.


  • 4 mm (US 6) Knitting needles – I used my interchangeable circular needles on a 40cm/16″ cable – I did not join in the round to knit the main section of the fingerless glove.

I did join in the round to complete the thumb section and used the magic loop technique.
You may want to use a smaller cable for this section if you have one.

  • Cable needle (4mm/US 6 size).


Level - Intermediate

This is an intermediate-level knitting pattern and the techniques involved are the knit stitch, purl stitch, ribbing, cable stitches/slipped stitches, knitting in the round, short row shaping, casting on, and casting off.

Seaming - the main fingerless gloves are seamed and there is a tutorial link in the pattern to help you.

The thumb is knit in the round.


To fit an average hand.
The glove measures - lying flat:
Length - 8 inches/21 cm
Width - 3.5 inces/9cm

The yarn I used has some elasticity so that it has a snug fit but does stretch to fit around your palm.

You may want to make the mitts longer or wider depending on your preference.
