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!

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!
