My sister's been asking me to make her a pair of fingerless gloves for ages, but I never got around to it, because she's terribly picky Grin I was sick and stuck in bed this weekend, though, so I finally came up with a pattern that pleased her!

I'm really really happy with how they turned out! I'm working on a pattern if anyone's interested. Here is the pattern!

Now with a handy PDF!

Yarn: Worsted weight
Hook: 4.5mm/U.S. G

Ch: chain
Sc: single crochet
Dc: double crochet
Sl st: slip stitch
FPHDC: Front-post half-double crochet
BPHDC: Back-post half-double crochet

Ch 28, join with sl st, being careful not to twist the chain,
Round 1: Ch 1, sc in every stitch around, join to ch 1 with sl st
Round 2: Ch 1, *FPHDC in next sc, BPHDC in second sc, repeat from * around, join with sl st to ch1
Round 3-4: Repeat Round 2.

Round 5: Ch 3, 2 dc in same stitch, *skip 2 stitches, 3 dc in third stitch, repeat from * around until there are only 2 stitches left, join to ch 2
Round 6: Sl st in middle dc of dc cluster, ch 4, dc in same stitch, *dc in middle stitch of next dc cluster, ch 1, dc in same stitch, repeat from * around, join to 3rd ch of ch 4
Round 7: Sl st in ch 1 space, ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *3 dc in next ch 1 space, repeat from * around, join to ch 3
Round 8: Repeat Round 6
Round 9: Repeat Round 7

Thumb space
Round 10: Repeat Round 6 until the last dc cluster, skip the last dc cluster, and join to 3rd chain of ch 4 with sl st
Round 11: Repeat Round 7
Round 12: Repeat Round 6
Round 13: Repeat Round 7
Round 14: Ch 1, sc in every stitch around, join to ch 1, fasten off.

Optional: Thumb
Join yarn at thumb opening.
Round 1: Ch 1, *sc in every stitch, 2 sc in side of dc space created by Round 10 of pattern, repeat from * around thump space, join with sl st to ch 1
Round 2-3: Repeat Round 1.

Tips for increasing/decreasing the pattern:
-You need a multiple of three plus one for the starting chain.
-For a larger hand, in Round 10 of pattern you may need to skip the last two dc clusters instead of just the last one.

Let me know if you have any difficulties with the pattern! If you make a pair, I'd love to see some pictures!

I love em!  and would definitely be interested in a pattern!  Hope you are feeling better too.  But the one thing about being sick and stuck in bed, is more time for crochet! Grin

That is the best pastime of sickness. ); I'm sorry you were sick. Best wishes. <3

I'm interested if you feel like sharing. ^ ^ What kind of yarn did you use for them? I bought some sock yarn and made my own fingerless gloves (or glove I should say) because I didn't do them at the same time so my gauge wasn't consistent. @[email protected]

I don't crochet very often, but I'd LOVE to try this pattern. How difficult would you say this is?

Hobbes: "Hmm...I suppose if the right person came along, I might. Someone with green eyes and a nice laugh, who I could call 'Pooty Pie'."
Calvin: "POOTY PIE?"
Hobbes: "Or bitsy pookums."

Those look so cozy. Your sister would be crazy not to love them.
(I also like how well the colour goes with those excellent steel grey nails)
