Fingerless Crochet Gloves

A fun crochet accessory that many seem to really like are fingerless gloves. There are oodles and oodles of styles out there. Some are thick and warm while others are lacy and stylish. I decided to try out making a set of fingerless gloves and I chose the pattern Ribbed Crochet Wrist Warmers.

The gloves use a Front-Post and Back-Post double crochet stitch, which is a stepping stone to learning to do cable crochet. These gloves are made starting by making a loop, then crocheting around and around to the length desired.

I used a bit thicker yarn than the pattern designer so mine turned out to be quite thick! I'm sure if I use a thinner weight yarn, like Caron Simply Soft, they would turn out thinner even with the Front Post and Back Post double crochets.

I then decided I would try my hand at making my OWN fingerless gloves crochet pattern! So I searched around at more photos online then settled upon making ones that are made length-wise.

While it looks a little thick in the photos, it isn't as thick as the ribbed set I made before. They are thin but not too thin. I used Hobby Lobby "I Love This Yarn" for both sets. I also decided to add a little embellishment to them- a strap with a button! It's nonfunctional but still cute!

Repeat row 2 six more times for a total of 12 rows. Test the wrap around your hand to see if you need to add or delete a row to fit.
Close glove with sc stitches across and turn inside-out to hide the ridge inside. Weave in ends.
Strap- ch 5, hdc in 3rd stitch from hook and remaining 2 stitches. ch 2 and turn. Then, hdc in the stitch immediately below the chain 2 and in remaining hdcs, leave tch unworked. Continue second row 7 more times. Tie off and weave ends. Sew your button on the end, then sew your strap to your glove.
Note- Remember to put the straps on opposite sides of each other on the gloves, you don't want TWO left-handed gloves! Yes, I did make that mistake with my first pair! :)
Enjoy your new crochet fingerless gloves and I hope this inspires you to find and do more crochet!

A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.

There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket.

I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Hook Size: H8 Gauge: 1” across cluster Measures: 32” wide by 34"-36” long (sizes vary by crafter) Supplies: 2 skeins each of three contrasting yarns. I used one of my favorite brands of yarn- Caron Simply Soft in Soft BlueRoyal Blue and Off White.
Instructions: Ch 122
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and across
Row 2: ch 1, *(sc, ch 2, 4 dc) all in next sc, sk next 3 sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!
