Easy Crochet Patterns for Fingerless Gloves
Here in South Africa we are in spring but the days still have a slight chill in the air and in other parts of the world they are heading for winter. I do not know how cold it is there at the moment but I thought maybe this crochet pattern will come in handy. Both here and world wide. This is a very easy pattern and it can be made
I found this on Getting Hooked Like me she is interested in many crafty things and has blogs on the things she loves doing and one of them of-course is crochet. Here is her pattern, it the bottom she has photo instructions on how to put the gloves together and how to make space for the thumb. Hope you enjoy making this for yourself or family.
Size F hook
Med. weight yarn (4), shown in Red Heart Collage in Blue Wave
This pattern is for a ladies size medium
St – stitch
Slst – slip stitch

You will start with the cuff, it is worked in rows and then sewn together to make a tube. You will work in the back loop to make a stretchable cuff.
Row 1: ch 11, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch1, turn (10 sc)
Row 2: sc in first sc, bpsc (picture#1) in the other 9 sc across, ch1, turn (10 sc)
Rows 3- 32: repeat row 2 (32 rows total) be sure to regular sc in first st, and bpsc in the other 9, this will give a ridged look (picture#2)
Fasten off leaving long tail for sewing. Whip stitch together to make a tube. (picture#3)
Now you will begin the palm of the glove, working in rounds
