It is a fairly easy crochet pattern and you can probably finish a pair in an afternoon. But there is a small catch. The dreaded seam when you are joining in the round, especially with hdc stitches.

I have written a whole blog post about it, including a video tutorial, last week, and if you want your seam to be straight for your gloves and to the side of your hand, you should definitely go give it a read.

If you don’t really care how straight your seam is going to be, just keep reading here to get to the pattern.

So, enough about seaming, let’s get to the good stuff. You are going to need worsted/aran weight yarn. I used Drops Nepal in beige. I know that not everyone can find Drops yarns easily so I have a list for you below with suggested yarns that might be more accessible to you.

Suggested yarns

Paintbox Simply Aran
MillaMia Naturally Soft Aran
Heartland
Vanna’s Choice
Wool-Ease

You will need:

Worsted/aran weight yarn (see above)
US J/6.0 mm crochet hook
darning needle
scissors

Gauge

6 sts x 5 rows is 2” in hdc

Yardage

105 m, 115 yds

Finished measurements

6.75” tall x 3.75” wide (17 x 9.5 cm)

The size presented for your crochet fingerless gloves, here is a woman’s medium and it will fit nicely a hand of 7.5” (19 cm). I offer additional sizes in an easy to print pdf. From women’s Medium (7.5”, 19 cm) to men’s Large (9”, 23.5 cm) hand circumference. You can find it on Etsy, Ravelry, and Lovecrafts.

If you decide to use the method I describe in this blog post for a straight hdc seam, know that I only tweaked the hdc rounds of this round with the exception of R14.

following on from previous comment.... should there be only two increases in round 13 and not 3 as written? If that's the case the calculation on stitch count will be correct.

I love these fingerless golves so much. I am on my 4th pair. I have a question about the following row: {R13: sc 9, inc, inc, inc, sc 11, sl st to join, ch 1 (24)} my calculations are that this row will add up to 26 stitches not 24. which would put row 14 out also. Are the stitiches correct or should there be less increases? I have been making them as written and ignored stitch count at end of rows.

Thanks so much for sharing your design with us. These gloves are lovely. I'm currently making them and am at round 13. The pattern says sc 9, inc, inc, inc, sc 11. which would add up to 26 stitches. Stitch count reads 24 for row 13. Should there be only 2 inc's in that round? ( This applies to both left and right ) your advice greatly appreciated.
