Lavender Fingerless Gloves – Free Crochet Pattern

Lavender Fingerless Gloves - Free Crochet Pattern

A while ago I posted a picture on Facebook, and asked if you all could guess what it was.

Well, no one guessed it…but it’s from a pattern coming soon!  (It’s here!  A pattern I designed for My Hobby is Crochet.  Check it out here! )  One person though, guessed fingerless gloves, which made me start thinking about how great these stitches would look as fingerless gloves.  So I figured the only thing to do was make some!

Items needed: 

  • Size J (6.00 mm) crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • 110 yards of bulky weight yarn (Shown in “Lavender Satchet” by Chaleur Hand Dyed Yarn).  This is a very light bulky yarn, please check your gauge.
  • “H” or “J” crochet hook (optional) – I prefer a slightly flared/looser top to my fingerless gloves.  If you want a more fitted look, go down a hook size or two at round 11.

Abbreviations (US terms):

  • Ch: chain
  • Dc: double crochet
  • Hdc: half double crochet

Sizing: Approximately 7.5 inches tall, 8 inches in diameter at the wrist, 10 inches in diameter at the top (to make it smaller or larger, increase or decrease by multiples of 3)

Gauge: 6 stitches x 6 rounds in hdc = 2 inches.  Make sure and check your gauge, as I tend to crochet tighter than most.

Note:  There has been some confusion regarding the hdc rows, some people thinking they are crocheted on the back loop only.  They are actually regular hdc stitches, made in the top two loops as normal, leaving that third “extra” loop hanging out by itself.  Because the pattern is worked on the round (not turning at the end of each row) these extra loops all end up on the same side giving it the look that it has.  Lion Brand Yarn has a video tutorial here showing you how to complete this stitch.

Directions: 

  • Round 1: Make a hdc foundation row of 24, slip to join, ch 2 but do not turn(does not count here and throughout)
  • Round 2-10: hdc around, slip to join, ch 2
  • Round 11: (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into first stitch,* skip 2, (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into next* repeat from * to * until 2 stitches remain, skip 2, slip to join, ch 3
  • Round 12: (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into each ch 1 space  from previous round, slip to join, ch 2
  • Round 13: (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into each ch 1 space  from previous round, slip to join
  • Round 14: Ch 8, skip first 5 stitches, (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into each ch space  from previous round, slip to join, ch 3
  • Round 15: (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into chain 8 space from previous round, (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into each ch 1 space  from previous round, slip to join
  • Round 16-17: (dc 2, ch 1, dc 2) into each ch 1 space  from previous round, slip to join
  • Bind off and weave in ends, take a picture and share!

  1. Love them! Pinned for future reference. It has been a LONG time since I have crocheted so there would be a learning curve for me but about how long did it take you to make one pair? I am thinking of making some Christmas gifts ♥

    Oooh. Tues eve at 7pm ET my blog hop goes live. Come by and share this???? Please?

  2. I would love to make these in worsted weight yarn. Would you recommend a K hook size if I make it in worsted weight or would I just test my gauge . I don’t often buy bulky weight yarn because of the cost. Thank you for your reply.

  3. This pattern was very clear and easy to follow. I made my pair using worsted weight acrylic. I used a J hook. I am going to try using a J hook for the base and going down a size when I get to the Lacey part on the next pair. Thank you for this lovely pattern.

  4. I loved this pattern! Thank you for making it available for free, WOOHOO!
    I didn’t have any bulky yarn in my stash, so I used two yarns worked together and finished one in half a morning and loved it. Again, thank you!

  5. I made a pair with Red Heart Boutique with an H hook (guess I crochet a bit loose). They turned out great! On the lace pattern, I sl st to chain space, then ch 3 and continued the pattern.

  6. For rounds 2-10 do you slip stitch to join and chain 2 on each round or do you just do one slip stitch and and chain 2 at the end of round 10?

  7. I am still a little bit confused as to how to do the hdc rows? And I can’t even have a look at the video, because the link doesn’t take me to a specific video, but rather to the Lion brand page.

  8. Hi Jess, I’m making your beautiful fingerless gloves. I have a couple of questions.
    1. I’ve ripped the rounds 2-10 out at least 4X because the part where I join rows 2-10 goes on a diagonal, instead of straight up. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Round 1, I slip stitch to join into the FIRST hdc, then chain 2, AND HDC INTO THE SAME STITCH I had joined to create my circle in rnd 1. Rnds 2-10 I’ve slip stitched into the chain 2 and then chain 2, and then hdc in the next 24 stitches.
    2. You stated in your Sizing, to make it smaller or larger, increase or decrease by multiples of 3, I don’t understand what you are saying. I’d like to make the rnds 11-17 smaller. (more snug fitting). I’m already using a G size hook. I’m making these for a small wrist hand hand.
