Easy Fingerless Gloves

Originally posted in the Crochet Pattern a Day Calendar 2009 & updated with additional info &
sizes. Great for using an odd ball of self-striping yarn, scraps, variegated, etc, and makes a
perfect great gift.
32-40 grams of worsted weight yarn (I used Paton’s Classic Wool & Vanna’s
Choice Solids), H crochet hook
15 sc=4 inches
Measurements: 4 inches (7 inches) long. Wrist size is easily adjustable to any size.
Easy Fingerless Gloves v.3.21.11
Abbreviations (pattern uses US terms):
ch: chain
ea: each
sl st: slip stitch
blo: back loop only
sc: single crochet
Pattern note: These gloves are worked flat in back loops only, then sewn, leaving a space
for your thumb to fit. You then crochet around the thumb opening to finish. The length & size of
the gloves are easily customizable by using more or less beginning chains, & by working fewer
or more rows. I have given 2 lengths to get you started. Original pattern did not have slip stitch
Ch 16 (26).
Row 1: Sl st in 1st 3 ch, sc in next 9 (19) ch, sl st in last 3 ch.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sl st in 1st 3 ch in blo, sc in next 9 (19) ch in BLO, sl st in last 3 ch in blo.
Rows 3-22: Ch 1, turn. Sl st in 1st 3 ch in blo, sc in next 9 (19) ch in BLO, sl st in last 3 ch in blo.
End off, leaving a long tail to sew beginning ch & last row together, leaving a hole for your
thumb – I usually skip 4 sc.
Join yarn with a sl st in any skipped sc around thumb whole, sc into ea sc, & sc into ea seam st,
about 10 sc. Join with a sl st.
End off. Weave in ends, block, and wear with pride!
