Pattern: Moss Stitch Fingerless Gloves


Here in Missouri, we're not done with winter yet! Well, maybe mentally but there's still snow on the ground! Inspired by a knit version my cousin shared with me from Etsy, these cute crocheted gloves are perfect for texting, holding on to the steering wheel without freezing your palms off, or just keeping your hands warm.
 
 
Materials: 
  • size G hook
  • size I hook
  • worsted weight yarn
  • two buttons
  • scissors
  • darning needle 
  • stitch marker

Stitches/ Abbreviations Used (American terms):
  • ch - chain
  • sc - single crochet
  • sk - skip
  • slst - slip stitch
  • fo - finish off
Notes: 
  • try your glove on as you go to ensure it fits
  • you will switch off between placing your marker in the first sc and first ch space after each round
  • unless a number of stitches is specified, only skip/ chain/ single crochet one (i.e. *sc, ch, sk*)

Cuff - size G hook
 
ch 8
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across, ch 1, turn
Row 2-28: ch 1, sc across, turn

Fold your cuff in half and sc the ends together. Flip the cuff right side out. DO NOT FINISH OFF!

 
Left glove - size I hook
 
Working around the edge of your cuff...

Rnd 1: sc in first available st and in next 3, 2sc, *sc in 4, 2sc* for a total of 5 sets, sc in last 3 sts, join with a slst to first sc
Rnd 2: ch 1, sk next sc, sc, place marker in ch 1 space just created, *ch 1, sk 1, sc* around. sc in last sc, ch 1, sc in ch 1 space/ where your marker is
Rnds 3-5: *ch 1, sc in next ch 1 space* around (this is the moss/ granite stitch)
Rnd 6: *sc, ch, sk* 3 times, ch 6, sk 3 ch 1 spaces, *sc, ch, sk* 11 times
Rnd 7: *sc, ch, sk* until you reach ch 7 space, *sc, ch, sk* 4 times in the back loop of ch 7, *sc, ch, sk* in remaining
Rnds 8-12: Repeat RND 3
Rnd 13: *sc in 2, sc2tog* in every ch and sc (you're not going to sc in every ch space alone like before, you will sc in every sc and ch), sk last, join with a slst to marked stitch
FO and weave in ends.

 
Right glove - size I hook
 
Rnds 1-5: Repeat as for left glove
Rnd 6: *sc, ch, sk* 11 times, ch 6, sk 3 ch 1 spaces, *sc, ch, sk* 3 times
Rnds 7-13: Repeat as for left glove 
FO and weave in ends.

 
Strap - using G hook
 
ch 18
Row 1: sc in a ch of your choosing to make a loop large enough for your button to fit through, sc in remaining, turn
Row 2: ch, sk, sc in each until bottom loop, sc the number of skipped ch sts from ROW 1 into the loop, sc down the side of the fondation ch, slst in last sc
FO and weave in ends. Sew to glove as pictured below.

Fold your glove in half so that the thumb hole is even on both sides (like it would be when you wear it). Sew the button on the outside, furthest from your thumb on the cuff, right below the row that joins the body of the glove to the cuff. Loop your strap around the button and sew the end of the strap underneath the thumb hole (see photo for clarification). Enjoy your gloves!
