Icy mornings call for some new fingerless gloves, out come the crochet hooks!

That time of year has arrived – I can no longer put off wearing gloves, if I do I don’t think my hands are going to be too happy! unfortunately I came across a slight problem when I got my gloves out from last year – they had a hole in them, a hole which rapidly expanded when I put them on and there was no chance of saving them.

I have had a pair of fingerless gloves on my to to list for a while now and since I no longer had a pair a gloves to wear decided it was about time I got a pattern put together for some and them made.  I received some lovely Rowan wool rowan tweed a long time ago and have been waiting for the perfect project for it and knew this was it.  I decided to use a mix of single crochet and trebles crochet (US Double) for the pattern and am happy with how it has turned out.


Fingerless gloves pattern.

4 mm crochet hook

50 g ball of DK wool, I used Rowan Tweed by Rowan


Make 2:

ch enough so the chain fits loosely around your wrist, slip stitch into the 1st ch to make a round.

Working in rounds:

Rounds 1-2: sc around.

Rounds 3-4: trb(UK)/dc(US) around.

Repeat rows 1-4 until the glove is the length you want on your arm up to the base of your thumb, finishing on a row 4.


Round 5: Take the total amount of sc stitches in your round and subtract 9, then divide this number by 2 (round up if a decimal).  This is the number of sc you need to complete on this round before skipping 9 stitches and continuing around the rest of the round back to the start in sc.



Round 6: sc around.

Round 7: *2trb(UK)/dc(US) into next stitch, trb(UK)/dc(US) into the next 3 stitches.  REpeat from *around.

Round 8: sc around.

Fasten off.
