delicate crochet fingerless gloves (a free pattern)

delicate crochet hand warmers (a free pattern)

I know, I know, I just posted a free crochet pattern for chunky fingerless gloves, but you guys those were chunky, and these aren't. I like a little variety in my fingerless glove wardrobe, don't judge me!

Actually what happened was that I was so happy with how my first set turned out, that I wanted to make some that were a bit more delicate and 'fancy' for when I'm a little more dressed up. Something that could potentially still be used after deep winter is over. I wanted something a little more feminine and lacy, and I think (if I do say so myself) that I nailed it! 

This makes me especially happy because I'm going to share the free pattern with you all today! Are you excited? Because I'm excited!

Pattern


Row 1: Ch 42 (or a multiple of 3 that fits around your wrist), sl st into a circle

Rows 2-4: ch 1, sc around, sl st to join.

Row 5: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of the ch. Skip the next two st, then dc 3 into the third st. Continue around (you will have 14 clusters of 3 st) sl st to join.

Row 6-14: ch 2, dc into the base of your chain, then dc three into the space between the clusters. Skip to the next space between the clusters and dc three into the space. Continue around (14 shells) and sl st to join.

Row 15: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc three into the space between the clusters. Skip to the next space between clusters and continue as above, until you have six clusters. Then in the next space dc 6 stitches together into the space. Then in the next st continue to dc 3 into each space around (14 total clusters, with one cluster of 6 st). Sl st to join.

Row 16: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc 3 into the space between clusters. Continue around, except when you reach your cluster of 6, dc into the center of the cluster of 6, with 3 on one side and 3 on the other. Continue around, sl st to join. (you will have a total of 15 clusters)

Row 17: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc 3 into the space between clusters. Continue around until you reach the space right before the cluster of 3 your crocheted into the center of your increase cluster of 6. In the space before, dc 6 into that space. Then dc 3 into the next space, then dc 6 into the next space. (Total of 15 clusters, except 2 clusters will be clusters of 6 together)

Row 18: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc 3 into the space between your clusters. Continue around, except when you reach your clusters of 6 dc you will dc 3 into the center of each of those. Continue around, sl st to join. (You will have a total of 17 clusters)

Rows 19-20: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc three into the space between the clusters. Skip to the next space between the clusters and dc three into the space. Continue around (17 clusters) and sl st to join.

Row 21: This is the hard part. Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc 3 together into the space between clusters. Continue around until you reach the part of your wrist warmer where you've increased your stitches. You will pinch off 5 of your clusters, skipping over them and continue into the space of the cluster on the other side. This creates a hole for your thumb and tightens it around the palms of your hands. (You'll End up with a total of 13 clusters.) Sl st to join.

Row 22-25: Ch 2, dc 2 into the base of your chain, then dc three into the space between the clusters. Skip to the next space between the clusters and dc three into the space. Continue around (13 clusters) and sl st to join.

Row 26: Ch 1, sc around into the tops of the clusters, do not skip any stitches or crochet into the space! Just sc around! Sl st to join. (this should be 39 stitches)

Rows 27-28: Ch 1, sc around, sl st to join. Weave in ends.

Thumb holes: Sc around your thumb holes, sl st to join. Sc 2 more rows for a total of three rows of sc, just like on the bottom and tops of your wrist warmers. Weave in ends and you're done!

  1. Super cute! I think I'm going to make some to wear at the office. For some reason the AC has been blowing on me FULL BLAST for the past two days. It's really aggravating my minor carpal tunnel issues. I'd still be able to type in these, I think!
