- This project is worked in rows.
- The 2 skipped chains at the beginning of R1 do not count as stitches and we do not work into them.
- The turning chain 1 does not count as a stitch and we do not work into it.
- After R1, all stitches are crocheted into the BL, except the final stitch of each row which is crocheted under both loops (FL and BL of the stitch).
- The last stitch is worked through both the FL and BL of the stitch to help control the stretch on the two edges. If you work under only the BL it will be very stretch and open. If this happens you may wish to add 1 round of single crochet around the top and bottom edges of your fingerless gloves.
- Add 2 extra rows to add approximately 1 extra inch in circumference, or decrease by 2 rows to decrease the overall circumference by approximately 1 inch.
- To decrease the length of your fingerless gloves for a shorter arm sleeve, begin with less chain stitches.

Soft Fingerless Gloves Pattern
These fingerless gloves are crocheted in rows before being seamed into their final shape using a slip stitch seam. This project is an easy crochet gift that you can make with any yarn and hook!
Using your 6 mm (J) crochet hook, or size required for gauge:
R1: Ch 40, sk the first 2 chs, 1 hdc in the back bar of each st across, ch 1, turn. [38 hdc]
R2-R18: 1 hdc in the BL of each st across, ch 1, turn. [38 hdc]
Do not finish off.
- Fold the rectangle so R1 is on the top and R18 is on the bottom (see image below). Line up the stitches from each row to make them easier to work through.
- We will be working 1 sl st through the remaining loops (both the FL and BL) of the foundation chain (R1) and the BL of R18, for each st across the row; except the 5 stitches that we will skip to create the thumb hole. Make your slip stitches loosely.
R19: WS: Working through a stitch from both R1 and R18, make 1 sl st in each of the first 29 sts, make 1 sl st in the FL of each of the next 5 sts in R1 and sk the next 5 sts in R18, make 1 sl st in each of the last 4 sts across. [38 sl st]
Proceed to finishing instructions.
- Weave in any remaining ends.
- Flip RS out.
Did you remember to make your Ravelry Project Page? (How to Make a Ravelry Project Page.)
You can use any yarn and hook to make this project!
- With the yarn and hook you’ve chosen for the project, chain until you reach the width you’d like for your fingerless mitts. I chained for length that measured 11.5 inches (from the knuckle on my hand to the spot on my arm I wanted these to reach).
- Chain 2 extra chains and follow the pattern as written, beginning at “sk the first 2 chs…” in R1.
- Continue crocheting until your project is the circumference you would like it to be (the width) to fit around your hand and arm comfortably. I worked 18 rows which gave me 7.5 inches (without stretching).
- Then proceed to the final row of the project to seam your mitt. When seaming be sure to create the thumbhole when there is approximately 3 inches remaining. My thumbhole measures approximately 1.5 inches. Then the last 1.5 inches is seamed as the rest of the mitten was seamed, through both layers.
- Finish off and weave in your ends.
