Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern – Pattern Notes

Skill level: begginer crochet skills and knowledge

Terminology: US crochet terminology

Gauge (2″ x 2″): 10 stitches x 15 worked rows

 

Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern – Sizing

The below sizing is based on:

– the use of Light Worsted #3 = DK and 4mm = G/6 crochet hook

– circumference around the widest part of your hand; without the thumb

 

Woman Small (WS): Hand circumference – 18cm (7″) | Finished width – 13cm (5″) | Crochet 38 rows

Woman Medium (WM): Hand circumference – 20.5cm (8″) | Finished width – 15.5cm (6″) | Crochet 46 rows

Woman Large (WL): Hand circumference – 23cm (9″) | Finished width – 18cm (7″) | Crochet 54 rows

Length (same for all sizes): 22cm (8.5″) = chain 45 for foundation chain

 

How to customise the width:

– measure the circumference around the widest part of your hand (without the thumb) and deduct 5cm (2″) – the finished size needs to be smaller than the hand circumference to allow for the glove stretching

– crochet less rows if you would like your glove to be narrower

– crochet more rows if you would like your glove to be wider

– each 2.5cm (1″) equals about 7 to 8 rows

 

How to customise the length:

– measure how long you would like your glove to be

– chain the required number of chains for your foundation chain allowing 5 chains per each 2.5cm (1″)

 

Note: the finished size may differ to the above size guide due to brand/type of yarn and tension used

 

Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern – Materials and Tools Needed

Yarn: 

– this pattern will work nicely with 100% acrylic or a blend of acrylic and wool

– recommended yarn weight: Light Worsted #3 = DK but the pattern will also work with Medium #4 = Worsted

 

I used:

– Light Worsted #3 = DK

– 72% acrylic, 25% wool, 3% viscose

– 1x ball of Life Tweed DK by Stylecraft yarn – Duck Egg Nepp 2298 – (100g/298m)

– weight/yardage to make both gloves: 50g / 150m

 

Crochet hook: I used 4mm = G/6 hook but refer to the instructions on your yarn label if using different weight of yarn I recommend this crochet hook set that includes many crochet hook sizes but also yarn needles, stitch markers and other handy bits.

 

Tools used: scissors, yarn needle, measuring tape, ‘handmade’ label (optional)

Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern – Crochet Terminology Used

This free crochet fingerless gloves pattern is written using US crochet terminology. Download my free Crochet Terminology Chart for UK terms here. You can print it and keep forever so you always have it to hand.

FCH: Foundation chain

R: row

ST: stitch

CH: chain stitch

SC: single crochet stitch

BLO: back loop only

TO: turn your work over

FO: fasten off

{…}: number shown inside these brackets equals the number of total stitches at the end of each round

 

Start with Your Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern

You will crochet the fingerless gloves using the single crochet ribbing stitch, which means you will work single crochet stitches into the back loop of each stitch apart from the first and the last stitch in each row, where you will crochet into the whole loop. This is a double sided stitch so your work will look identical on both sides.

Watch this video tutorial that will show you step by step how to crochet the single crochet ribbing stitch, how to change colours and how to count rows when working on a project using this crochet stitch.

FCH: Chain 45 or customise as per the size guide at the top of this page

 

R1: SC in back bump of each chain across starting from 2nd CH from the hook; CH1 and TO {44 excl CH1 at the end}

 

R2:

– SC in the whole loop of the 2nd chain from the hook (Pic 1)

– SC into BLO across in the next 42 stitches:

        – SC into BLO = insert hook into the back loop only (Pic 2), yarn over and pull through the stitch – you will have two loops on the hook (Pic 3), yarn over and pull through remaining two loops on the hook (Pic 4)

        – that’s your first SC into BLO completed

        – repeat SC into BLO for the next 41 stitches

– SC in the whole loop of the last ST, watch out as the last stitch can be easily overlooked

– CH1 and TO {44 excl CH1 at the end}

note: when working on a project using the single crochet ribbing stitch, the edges tend to stretch a bit more than the middle of your work. This is why you will work SC into the whole loop of the first and last stitch in each row. This helps to keep the edges a bit tighter.

R3:

– SC in the whole loop of the 2nd chain from the hook

– SC into BLO across in the next 42 stitches

– SC in the whole loop of the last ST

– CH1 and TO {44 excl CH1 at the end}

 

R4 onwards:

– repeat R3 until you have achieved the desired width of your glove

make sure to complete the last row so your finishing tail will be in the opposite corner from your starting tail – this will help you achieve a nice neat seam when you sew the gloves together

WS: crochet 38 rows

WM: crochet 46 rows

WL: crochet 54 rows

Custom sizing: each 2.5cm (1″) equals about 7 to 8 rows

– my un-sewed glove is 15cm (6″) wide which equals to 44 worked rows

 

Last row:

– SC in the whole loop of the 2nd chain from the hook

– SC into BLO across in the next 42 stitches

– SC in the whole loop of the last ST {44}

– FO and cut the yarn off while leaving a long finishing tail for sewing (approx. 76cm /30”)

 

How to sew the gloves together:

– fold the glove in half with the foundation chain in the front and the last row in the back (Pic 5)

– thread your yarn needle with the finishing tail and sew the long sides together leaving a hole for your thumb (Pic 5)

– start sewing from the top of the glove towards your thumb and keep going until you have achieved your desired finger length.

– To achieve a nice and neat seam:

                  – insert the needle into the first stitch of the foundation chain – whole loop (Pic 6)

                  – then insert the needle into the first stitch in the last row – back loop only (Pic 6)

– try your glove on and decide on the size of the hole for your thumb; mark where to start sewing together again

– you can continue sewing using the same yarn tail; you can just carry the yarn through the stitches on one side of the thumb hole (Pic 7)

– you will continue to sew from the thumb hole towards the bottom of the glove

– I sewed 15 stitches above the thumb, skipped 10 stitches and sewed 19 stitches below the thumb

– once you have sewed the long sides together, try the glove on to test the size before you FO and weave the yarn ends in

– you should be left with a neat looking seem

How to change colours:

If you would like to change colours and create a stripy glove you can follow the steps below:

– SC across the row using one colour

– when working on the last SC: insert your hook into the back loop of the last stitch; yarn over; pull through the stitch, then yarn over with new colour and pull it through the two loops on the hook

– then CH1 using new colour and TO

– when working on the first and last SC in the next row, SC into back loop only instead of the whole loop

– continue to crochet as per row R3
