Keep your hands warm with a quick and easy pair of Crochet Fingerless Gloves.
Crochet fingerless gloves are one of the last winter items I put away. They are useful for keeping your hands warm while allowing you to still fuss with your phone.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for these crochet fingerless mittens. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge and sizing information. If you would like all of this in a nicely formatted printable format, you can purchase the Ad-Free Large Print PDF Pattern.
The Crochet Fingerless Gloves Match
I just loved the textured used in the Textured Buttoned Infinity Scarf that I thought I would make some matching accessories. Since winter seems to be leaving us, I thought a good transitioning piece would be great. Crochet Fingerless gloves are great for early spring and even summer.
Use them for cold mornings. They will still let you play on your phone without being completely chilled. They also work great in the summer for protecting your palms from a too hot steering wheel. Just keep them in your purse for any occasion.
How to Crochet Fingerless Gloves
Creating a pattern that is both unique and easy can sometimes be a challenge. With this pattern, I settled on having one slightly tricky part. and kept everything else simple. It is easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Crochet your ribbed cuff.
2. Crochet the textured hand section.
3. Sew a seam and add your buttons.
It is just that easy. you will need to fasten off and move your starting stitch over a bit, but don’t’ worry I will walk you through it step by step with photos.
What Yarn should I use?
To get the most warmth from these fingerless gloves, I decided to use the Red Heart Heatwave. This yarn claims to trap heat and keep you extra warm. Any worsted weight yarn will work just fine. I know I have some Super Saver and With Love that would make a great second pair of crochet fingerless gloves.
Picking the Right Crochet Stitches
The texture in this pattern comes from using single and double crochet stitches. When worked together the double crochet gets crunched down just a bit and creates a slightly raised texture. The end result is a solid but textured surface.
To create our ribbed cuff, we will be working into the back loops only with single crochet. This creates a nice stretch cuff.

Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a print out of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted ad-free large font PDF version of the pattern. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.
I moved all the photos to the end of the PDF so you can reference them as you needed them and print just the pattern without using up as much ink. The Premium PDF version of the pattern can be purchased on Etsy.

Sewing it Together
Once both gloves are made. Lay them done next to each other. Position them so that the button flaps are on the outside of your wrists and the opening for the thumb is on the inside of the gloves. You may need to turn one glove inside out to accomplish this.
Using pink yarn and a whip stitch, sew the top and bottom of the open side together following the diagram below. Feel free to try on the glove and adjust the thumb opening to your liking. Sew two buttons onto the side of each cuff and your fingerless mitts are ready to enjoy.
