Easy Lace Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern
I’m scrambling to get those last minute Christmas gifts together this week, and thought you might be doing the same, so this quick and easy crochet pattern is something that works up in an hour or two and is sure to keep those wrists warm this winter.
The simple fingerless gloves pattern is worked sideways to begin, then you will fold the rectangle in half, put the edging on both ends, and then sew up the sides leaving room for the thumb hole. It’s pretty easy, and once you crochet the first glove the second should go very quickly. If you are concerned about them both turning out he right size, crochet the main body of both your fingerless gloves first, then add the edging.
Use the following patterns to crochet a complete gift set for that special person, or charity:
See how pretty the stitches on these fingerless gloves look? Lacy but still nice and warm for cold weather.

ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
Stitching in the “3rd loop” of hdc. After turning, work all stitches for that row in the 3rd loop of the hdc from previous row (it will be in the front). Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back*, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop. *When working in rows, this loop will be facing you!
st/sts = stitch/stitches
sp/sps = space/spaces
Here is a video tutorial that explains how to work in the 3rd loop of a hdc if you don’t know how:
15 hdc stitches in 4″
When finished, 3 1/4″ wide, by 7 1/4″ long.
-ch-2, and ch-3 at beginning of row counts as a stitch
-mark first and last st of row if you find your project is taking off diagonally so you don’t miss those stitches. That is what causes the pattern to distort.

Repeat rows 3-6 three more times for a total of 4 pattern repeats*. then fold your rectangle in half and work the next rows around the end of the rectangle.
*If your hand is wider or narrower you can adjust the number of repeats here, You will need to increase or decrease the number of stitches in the edging as well so the fingerless glove lays smoothly. Make sure your stitch count is an even number.
Row 1: evenly space 24 sc along the edge of the piece, join with sl st to first sc. (24)
Row 2: ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in first st, sk st, *(sc, ch 2, sc) in first st, sk st; repeat from * across, join with sl st to first sc. (12 bumps)
Fasten off, and weave in ends.
Attach yarn to other end of glove, and repeat rows 1 and 2.
Fasten off, and weave in ends.
Cut 15″ length of yarn and sew up the side of the glove leaving an opening about 1″ long for your thumb to slip through.
For the second glove sew up the open side from the opposite end-this way your stitches will match on both gloves when you wear them.
Fasten off, and weave in ends.
