Felted Fingerless Gloves

January 13, 2014 1 comment

I used my simple men’s fingerless glove pattern to crochet these felted gloves. While the original pattern fits a man’s hand, these felted gloves fit a woman’s hand just fine after felting. They actually fit my hands okay before felting but now with the stitches felted, they fit even more snugly and are nice and warm.

Here are the gloves before I felted them.

I felted the gloves in a pot of hot water on my stove. I used a wooden spoon to stir them and agitated the wool to aid in the felting process. After the hot water bath, I did a cold water rinse and repeated the process one more time to complete the felting of the gloves.

So whether you just want a pair of fingerless gloves or a felted pair, try my free crochet pattern

Basic Fingerless Gloves

October 27, 2011 16 comments

As many of you know, I’m really into creating basic patterns that are easy to make. With that in mind, I set out to create some crocheted fingerless gloves. I love to work in the round, without joining or seams if possible. So here is my basic and very simple crocheted fingerless glove project.

After making this basic crocheted pair of fingerless gloves, I decided that I would try adding a bit of a thumb to it. Below is the pair of gloves that I crocheted with the optional thumb.

The second pair of gloves were crocheted just a bit smaller by only doing 40 rows of ribbing and 40 stitches along the edge for the body of the glove. This resulted in a 1/4 inch smaller cuff and finger opening area. I mention this as a way to show that this pattern can be adjusted for smaller hands by just reducing the number of stitches on the ribbing. Likewise, you could make larger gloves by just increasing the number of stitches of the ribbing when you begin the pattern.

Each pair of gloves use just one skein of yarn and do work up very quickly. As always, I hope you enjoy my free pattern and happy crocheting to all!
