So the cold weather is making an appearance in Upstate New York! In the building where I work, it's either warm and stifling or freezing so much that my fingers don't want to type! Other fingerless gloves I've worn were so bulky that I was unable to write comfortably.
I came up with these gloves that I think are cute and not too bulky if you need to write, text...or smoke (insert disapproving look). It's okay, some of the ladies I work with love these gloves for their smoke break.
US G6/4.00 MM crochet hook
US H8/5.00 MM crochet hook
Any Size 4 yarn will work, but I used Caron Simply Soft yarn because it's so soft!
CH = chain
ST = stitch
SL ST = slip stitch
SC = single crochet
HDC = half double crochet
DC = double crochet
BLO = back loop only
To Make the Cuff using the Size 4.00 MM crochet hook,
Row 1: CH 11; CH 1 and turn (10 stitches)
Row 2: SC in BLO of each stitch across (10 stitches)
Row 3: Repeat Row 2 until you have 24 rows
Fold your cuff in half and slip stitch across until it's closed. CH 1
To Make the Glove:
Round 1: still using the 4.00 MM crochet hook, work 1 SC in each stitch along the edge of the cuff (24 stitches). Join with a SL ST into the first SC of the round. CH 1
*Switch to the 5.00 MM crochet hook for the rest of the glove.
Round 2: Work 1 HDC into each ST around (24 stitches). SL ST into the top of the first HDC. CH 1; ** See photo below
Round 3: Work 1 SC into the BLO of each ST around (24 stitches). SL ST into the first SC. CH 1; ** See photo below
( I slip stitch into the whole stitch here, as it doesn't really change the look of the glove.)
Rounds 4 - 10: Continue to alternate Rounds 2 and 3 until you have 10 rounds. Round 10 should be a HDC round.
Round 11 for the Right Glove: having ended your last round with a CH 1, SC into the BLO of the next 6 ST, CH 4, Skip the next 4 ST, continue to SC in the BLO around (24 stitches), SL ST into the first SC ST. CH 1
Round 11 for the Left Glove: having ended your last round with a CH 1, SC into the BLO of each ST around, until you come to the last 4 stitches of the round. CH 4 and skip those stitches. SL ST into the first SC. CH 1
Round 12: Work 1 HDC into each ST around (24 stitches). SL ST into the first HDC of the round. CH 1
Round 13: Work 1 SC into the BLO of each stitch around (24 stitches). SL ST into the first SC of the round. CH 1
Repeat Rounds 12 and 13 until you have 16 rounds. Your last round should be a HDC Round. Do not CH 1 at the end of Round 16.
Round 17: Having ended your last round without a CH 1, *work 3 DC into the next ST, SL ST into the next ST, skip the next ST*, work 3 DC into the next ST, SL ST into the next ST, SL ST into the next ST. Repeat this sequence 6 more times around until you end up with 8 scallops or shell shapes. Finish off yarn and weave in the ends!
