Creations, Crochet Fingerless Gloves

 

I love to have a crochet or needlepoint project in the works

When I started seeing fingerless gloves all over the place I couldn’t wait to try making them!

 

 

 

 

I made a pair for DD and CC for Christmas

 

 

 

 

These are great because they keep your hands warm

but your fingers are available for tying, buttoning, writing, texting

 

 

 

 

I made an experimental pair first, using Julie’s pattern,

making a rectangle and sewing the sides together

I used a chunky white yarn and a  large crochet hook

I trimmed them with a gray and white yarn I had leftover from a blanket

 

 

 

 

 

I decided to use a tube pattern for DD’s and CC’s

I used Bernat Velvet yarn in Vapor Gray available here

 

 

 

 

These are soooo soft!

DD doesn’t like a lot of fussy things so I just finished them with a simple white edge at the top

 

 

 

 

There are so many wonderful free patterns and tutorials on Pinterest and You Tube

You can make gloves in a simple rectangle and sew the edges together like Julie did here

Or crochet them in a tube like the tutorial I used here

 

 

 

 

Crochet Fingerless Gloves

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

NOTE: the size/type of yarn and crochet hook will vary the number of stitches and rows needed so adjust these directions accordingly

washable yarn

crochet hook

Measure wrist diameter.  Measure length from fingers to wrist or mid arm.

Ch a length to match diameter of wrist.  After the last stitch in the row, form a circle by putting the first ch on your hook yo, and pull the first chain through last chain.

Ch 1 then sc in each chain in circle.  When you have done the last stitch in the row, put your hook through the first stitch, yo and pull through the last stitch forming a circle.

For the 2nd row, ch 2, then dc in each stitch around the tube until you’re back to the first stitch of this row, put your hook through the first stitch, yo and pull through the last stitch continuing the circle. Continue rows of dc in this fashion, completing each row by putting your hook through the first stitch, yo, and pulling through the last to join the circle.  Ch 2 to start the next row,  and continue rows until desired length to bottom of thumb is reached.

To make thumb hole, when you get near the end of the last row before thumb hole, skip the last 3-4 stitches and do 3-4 chain stitches instead, then complete the circle as you have been doing by putting your hook through the top of the first stitch, yo and pull through the last stitch, and ch 2 and start another row of dc

When you get to the end of the row, and the 3-4 chains, simply  dc in each one and join the circle as before.  Do another 1 or 2 rows of dc, depending on how much glove you want above the thumb hole.  Finish with one last row of sc, finish off and weave in any loose ends.

Legend:

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

dc = double crochet

yo = yarn over

 

 

I used the blue crochet hook, size K/1012 6.50MM for the gray gloves

I used the larger plastic hook for the bulky white gloves

The size of yarn and hook will affect the number of stitches

and the stitch you choose to use will determine the number of rows needed

 

 

 

 

Once you get the hang of it, they work up very quickly!

  1. Fingerless gloves get me through the winter when I’m typing! Mine are knit but there are awfully cute and don’t look too hard!

  2. Nancy says:

    Cute! Right now here in the desert… we get a wee bit cold at night. These would be perfect!

  3. thefrenchhutch says:

    What a great idea for a gift. Another one of your many talents Jenna. I’m sure your gifts to DD and CC were much appreciated. They are so pretty……..

  4. Jenna, I love the fingerless gloves you made DD and CC. I don’t think I remember that you crocheted, you are so talented. Is there anything you can’t do? Happy rainy Thursday!

  5. Cyndi Raines says:

    WOW, what a great fast project! Love this idea. Right now I’m crocheting a lap blanket for a Veteran, but will consider this when I’m done. I like projects that allow you to see progress made quickly and that’s why I enjoy crotcheting. The fingerless gloves are perfect for a quick, feel good project! Thanks Jenna!

  6. Sarah Anderson says:

    Jenna, you are always creating something fun. My sister loves fingerless gloves, and has given me some too. They are a clever idea! I know these gifts were well received. My mom liked to crochet, but I never learned. I do have a needpoint project or two or three, or more, in the works. I keep my bag beside the sofa and pull out something to stitch on when I’m not sitting with my laptop. Ha! Ha!

    • I do the same Sarah! My daughter asked me to needlepoint stockings for herself and her husband {I’ve done them for her children} so I will be busy needlepointing like crazy for the next 6 months, hoping to be done in time for finishing for next year!

  7. Pattie says:

    This is a timely post. Just this morning I was looking at my gobs and gobs of luscious yarn, wondering if I should just give it to a knitting neighbor because I have pretty much given up on knitting. Hmmm. Maybe crochet is the answer.

  8. Those are just the cutest things ever! Girl…Love it! I never learned how to do that. Happy New Year. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. Kitty says:

    What a cute gift idea, Jenna. I do like to crochet, so I’ll have to try this.
    Happy New Year!

  10. Julie says:

    Hi Jenna, you made and crocheted the cutest hand warmers. I love the yarn you used to make them. You have inspired me and I will try out the pattern you used! Thanks so much for the shout out too. Hope you have a happy new year and a nice weekend.
    Hugs, Julie xo

  11. pattyanneart says:

    I love them! What a wonderful gift. 💚
    I haven’t crocheted in a long time. Looks like a fun project. 😊

  12. Michelle says:

    These are so pretty! They look so soft and warm.

  13. Jill Kuhn says:

    They look sooo soft! 💗 What a wonderful gift to give! 😍

  14. lulu says:

    I have been teaching myself to knit and found fingerless gloves fun to make. I gave them as presents but I’m not sure how thrilled the recipients were!

  15. Deb cantales says:

    Jenna, these are great gifts! My friend made me knitted fingerless gloves (I’ll text you a pic), and they are my first pair. I love them! I am going to check out your watercolor tutorials next. One of my goals is to paint a few owls in 2020. Wish me luck, I am extremely novice.

  16. Mary says:

    So adorable Jenna! I don’t crochet but I’ve been wanting to try my hand at finger knitting (pun intended 😉 So many beautiful yarns, I’m likely to be a yarn hoarder if I ever start!
