Hi, here you can find the free crochet pattern for some super easy and quick fingerless gloves.
I love a fingerless glove, or wrist warmers as they are sometimes called. They are perfect for keeping your hands warm, but also leaving your fingers out for using your phone and helping the kids!
What do you call them? Fingerless gloves, wrist warmers, mittens, or something else?
This pattern I’m sharing here is for a super quick and easy pair of crochet fingerless gloves.
This crochet pattern was designed as part of the Autumn and Fall Blog hop organised RaeLynn by Itichin for some Stitchin and Sarah from Ned and Mimi, sponsored by We Crochet, who provided all the amazing yarn for the patterns. I was only supposed to make one item, but slightly over estimated the amount of yarn I’d need, so you have a bonus pattern here first before the matching crochet cowl pattern!
If you want to save this for later please pin it below.
How to Crochet a Quick Pair of Fingerless Gloves
Super Bulky yarn is perfect as it’s thick, so it uses a big hook which also means it works up super quickly.
I chose Mighty Stitch, a 20% wool, 80% acrylic mix, which was so so soft. The colour choices for this yarn was really hard, as they have 24 different colours to choose from.
After a lot of browsing, I went for Spruce, a delicious Emerald green colour, but I really could have picked any!
There are a few ways you can get the pattern which also includes the Tramlines Easy Cowl pattern.
How Quick can you Crochet some Fingerless Gloves.
One fingerless glove takes about 15-20 minutes to make! So you’ve got a pair in maybe 30 minutes if you are quick!
These are super quick and super easy.
To make a beginners pair of Fingerless Gloves.
This pattern is absolutely perfect for beginners looking to improve their crochet skills a little and luckily for you I have videos for most of these steps.
You need to know how to (US terms):
- Foundation Half Double Crochet (FHDC)
- Double Crochet (DC)
- Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC)
- Chain (ch)
- Fasten off and weave in ends
To start the pattern off, I’ve used Foundation Half Double crochet. This is my go to for starting any pattern as it gives a lovely straight edge and eliminates the dreaded “twisted chain”
The effect on the top is made from Back Post Double Crochet. It sounds scary, but it isn’t. If you can Double Crochet, you and back post double crochet.
The only difference is where you insert your hook into the stitch.
For a standard Double Crochet (taking US terms here), you insert your hook under the top 2 loops of the V on the top of the stitch.
For a back post double crochet, we ignore the loops of the top and are more interested in the “Long” bit of the stitch (that gives it its height).
For a back post Double crochet, Yarn over, insert your hook around the post, for the back post, this mean inserting your hook (If right handed), through the gap between the long part of the stitch, and going around the front, and back out where the next gap is.
