Anyone else feel like January has been the longest month ever? Thankfully February is a short month!
January was an incredibly busy month Crochet wise and I managed to finish two blankets and design a couple of new patterns (that I’m still writing up … I’m the worst at procrastinating!!). So here’s my January 2019 round up.
The chevron blankets seem to have been popular on Instagram and I’m on a mission to get a tutorial up here ASAP … I just need to find a few extra hours in the day to fit everything in LOL!
I’ve been totally inspired by other makers in the last week by their ‘Valentine’s Day’ makes. So I’m totally jumping on the Valentines bandwagon and have come up with a quick little make that will keep your hands warm on those romantic walks in the countryside that you’re all planning to make! 😉
They’re so quick and easy, and are a perfect stash busting project as they take less than 100g of Aran weight yarn to complete. They would also be a perfect last minute gift or even for selling at a craft fair, and as an added bonus there are only 2 ends to weave in on each glove … I know! … You’re welcome!!!
So let’s get to it!
Easy Fingerless Gloves Pattern
What you’ll need:
- Aran Weight Acrylic Yarn 100g (I used Paintbox Simply Aran)
- Crochet Hook – Size 5.5 mm/ I hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Embroidery Scissors
Crochet Terms (I’ve used American Crochet Terms throughout this Pattern):
- CH – Chain
- St (s) – Stitch(es)
- SC – Single Crochet
- YO – Yarn over hook
- Dc2tog – Double Crochet 2 stitches together (YO, insert hook into specified stitch, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook into specified stitch, YO, pull up a loop, YO pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through 3 remaining loops)
- DV Cluster – Double V stitch Cluster (Dc2tog, CH2, Dc2tog all in same stitch/chain 2 space)
- Slip St – slip stitch
- Glove will fit a medium/large sized hand
- Size of glove can be adjusted by making the starting chain longer or shorter and by making less rows.
- Starting chain is a multiples of 3 + 2.
- Row 1: SC in second chain from hook, SC in each stitch across row (25 SC), CH 1, turn.
- Row 2: SC in first stitch and in each stitch across row, CH 2 ( counts as first DC of next row, here and throughout), turn.
- Row 3: Skip 2 St(s), DV Cluster, Skip 2 St(s), repeat until end of row making DC in last St, CH 2, turn.
- Row 4: DV Cluster in CH 2 space, repeat across row, making DC in top of CH 3 from previous row.
- Row 5-9: Repeat Row 4, making CH 1, turn at end of row 9.
- Row 10: SC in first St, make SC in each St across, including 1 SC in each CH 2 space (23 SC) – do not tie off yarn
Seaming up Glove
Fold the garment in half, making sure that the wrong side is facing outwards.
Slip St to join the two sides together, CH 1, SC the two sides together for 4 rows, very loosely slip st across only on one side for 3 rows to create the thumb hole, then continue to SC the two sides together, ending by binding off the yarn and sewing in your two yarn ends.
Turn your glove the right side out and Voila !
I’ve already started on another pair for my daughter … how gorgeous is this stitch? 🙂
