Wow! Can you believe we are only 10 days out from Christmas?! I’m scrambling to get those last minute gifts together, and thought you might be doing the same, so this week’s free fingerless gloves crochet pattern is something that works up in an hour or two. It also matches my Primrose and Proper Slouch hat, and either the Primrose and Proper Super Scarf, or the Primrose and Proper Cowl so you can make a complete set for that special person, or charity. I’ve had several requests for a set of fingerless gloves or mitts to go with the other pieces, and I hope you get much enjoyment out of this pattern!

These fingerless gloves are 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 make the first glove the second should go very quickly.
4.5mm hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge (a 5mm (I) hook should work as well)
80-100 yards Red Heart Super Saver in Aran
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
15 hdc stitches in 4″
When finished, 3 1/4″ wide, by 7 1/4″ long.
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!
Still stuck? Here is a video tutorial that explains how to work in the 3rd loop of a hdc:
Primrose and Proper Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern:
Row 1: hdc in 3rd ch from hook (skipped chains count as first hdc), and in each stitch across (24)
Row 2: ch 2, (counts as first hdc), turn, and hdc in each stitch across (24)
Row 3: ch 2 (counts as first hdc), turn, and hdc in 3rd loop of next hdc from previous row, and in each remaining 3rd loop. Your final hdc of the row will go in the top of ch 2 from previous row. (24)
Row 4: ch 2 (counts as an hdc), turn, [sc, ch 2, sc] in 2nd stitch, *skip 2 stitches, [sc, ch 2, sc] in next* At the end you will have one stitch left, put an hdc in that stitch (top of ch 2 from previous row). (24)
Row 5: ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, 2 dc in first ch 2 space from previous row, *3 dc in next ch 2 space* in the final ch 2 space put 2 dc, and 1 dc in the top of the ch 2 from previous row. (24)
Row 6: ch 2, turn (counts as first hdc), hdc in each stitch across. (24)
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
Row 1: evenly space 24 sc along the edge of the piece. Join to first sc (24)
Row 2: ch 1, [sc, ch 2, sc] in first stitch, skip stitch *[sc, ch 2, sc] in first stitch, skip stitch* join with sl st to first sc (12 bumps)
Fasten off and weave I ends.
Attach yarn to other end of glove, and repeat rows 1 and 2.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Cut length of yarn and sew up the side of the glove leaving an opening about 1 inch long for your thumb to stitch 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 all ends
