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