Keep your hands warm during cold weather with a pair of crocheted fingerless gloves. Fingerless gloves are also known as wrist warmers and arm warmers. This simple crochet accessory will provide warmth to your hands while allowing your fingers mobility to write, text and type without removing your gloves.
Bulky Crochet Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless gloves are made with bulky weight yarn and are meant to be loose and slouchy on most adult female hands. This is an easy pattern than can be accomplished in an evening. Click on the pattern photo below to download the Adobe printable pattern.
Alter the pattern to make a pair of fingerless gloves that are customized to your own tastes using these tips:
- Change to a smaller hook size to create a tighter, more fitted glove.
- Two strands of worsted weight yarn can be substituted for bulky weight. Check your gauge to determine if the hook size needs to be changed.
- Stitch a ruffle around the wrist or the finger opening for a more feminine touch.
