Free Easy to Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern

Free Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern

Print Friendly and PDF

Materials Needed:
Worsted Weight Acrylic Yarn - I used Knit Picks Mighty Stitch Yarn in the Color Pomegranate 
Crochet Hook - Size H (5.00 mm)

Please note since I used a knitting yarn that is very stretchy this pattern may be a little smaller if you use a worsted weight or different type of yarn.  If you need to increase the stitches you may do so by adding hdc to each round (see alternate stitches at the bottom of the page.   Watch the Video

Begin with the Cuff of the Glove - CUFF

There is no left or right glove they are interchangeable. Make two gloves for this pattern.

Chain 11
Rnd 1:  SC in the second ch from hook and ch across, turn (10 stitches)
Rnd 2:  ch 1, sc in first sc, sc in back loops only of the next 8 sc, sc in last sc, turn (10 sts)
Rnd 3-24:  Repeat rnd 2 (10 sts) (do not finish off or cut yarn)
Slip Stitch or sc the two ends of the cuff together to form a cuff.  Begin the next round by crocheting along the edge of the cuff (not cutting the yarn) to begin the hand portion of the glove.

Hand of Glove

Crochet in the round, joining at the end of every row and continuing in the same direction. The first stitch will always be in the same stitch as the join from the previous round.

Rnd 1:  ch 1, sc 25 times along the edge, join to the first sc (25 sts)
Rnd 2:  ch 1, 2 hdc in first sc, hdc in each sc across, join to first hdc (26 sts)
Rnd 3:  ch 1, hdc in each st around join (26 sts)
Rnd 4:  ch 1,  2 hdc in first st, hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st, hdc in each st around, join (28 sts)
Rnd 5;  ch 1, hdc in each st around, join (28 sts)
Rnd 6-8:  Repeat Rnd 5 (28 sts)
Rnd 9  ch 1, hdc in first st, skip next 7 sts, hdc in next st and in each st around, join (23 sts)
Rnd 10-13:  ch 1, hdc around, join
Rnd 14:  ch 1, sc around, join
Fasten Off and weave in the ends of yarn!
