Weather Is Getting Colder, Time For Another Winter Make: Crochet Plaid/Interlocking Block Stitch Fingerless Gloves/Wrist Warmers Pattern

Following on from my crochet block stitch ear warmer and plaid effect interlocking block stitch hat I am still continuing with the winter accessory theme, I really liked how my plaid effect hat turned out with the interlocking block stitch and wanted to make some fingerless gloves/wrist warmers using the same effect.

I didn’t want to match the colour schemes on the hat and gloves completely so I opted to keep two of the colours the same and change the spearmint wool to a light beige.

The grey: DK wool, no idea where I got this one from, I normally keep them with the labels but for some reason this one seems to have lost its one!.

The light beige: DK wool, HobbyCraft Everyday DK in beige.

The blue: DK wool, Stylecraft Special DK in Aster (1003).



Crochet Plaid/Interlocking Block Stitch Gloves/Wrist Warmers Pattern:

Materials:

  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Scissors.
  • Darning needle.
  • Wool: 3 colours. I used grey (colour 1), blue (colour 2) and light beige (colour 3).



Notes:

  • Change colour on last yo of previous stitch.

Quick Crochet Fingerless Gloves Pattern

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:

Materials:

  • 4 mm crochet hook
  • 50g 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 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.
