Fingerless Mitts Free Crochet Pattern

Yarn: Lion Brand Yarns Unique (Grapevine)
Hook: 6.0 mm (J)
Sized to fit: Women (Medium)

Finished Measurements:

Length: 7.5″
Width: 4.5″

Abbreviations: R – row/round, ch – chain, blsc – back loop single crochet (i.e. single crochet in the back loop only), st – stitch, sts – stitches, sc – single crochet, sl st – slip stitch, (number in brackets at the end of the R) – this is the total number of stitches for the row/round, *to* – repeat the instructions between the two *s as indicated, sp – space, ch-1 sp – chain 1 space,

Ribbed Cuff (worked flat):

Leave an 8″ tail and Chain 9

R1: begin in the 2nd ch from your hook, 1 blsc in each st across, ch 1, turn (8)

R2: 1 blsc in each st across, ch 1, turn (8)

R3-24: repeat R2, do not finish off

Turn your work to allow you to work along the row ends of the ribbed cuff

Main Fingerless Glove (worked in rounds):

R1: 1 sc in each row end, sl st to the initial sc to join (24)

Note: you will work the 1st st of the round in the same st as the sl st join was made; do not work into the slip stitch (you may wish to mark the slip stitch so you remember not to work into it!)

R2: 1 sc in each st around, sl st to the initial sc to join (24)

You may wish to use your 8″ tail of yarn from the beginning of the Ribbed Cuff pattern to whipstitch the cuff closed (into a tube). You can also wait until you are finished to do this – totally up to you! If you need help with the whipstitch joining method please visit this tutorial: How to Join Crocheted Fabric with a Whip Stitch Seam

R3: (ch 2, 1 sc) in the 1st st, skip 1 st, *(1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in the next st, skip 1 st* repeat from * to * around, sl st into the sp between the initial ch 2 and the 1st sc of the round to join

R4: (ch 2, 1 sc) in the sp between the ch 2 and 1st sc of the round, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in each ch-1 sp around, sl st into the sp between the initial ch 2 and the 1st sc of the round to join

R5-13: repeat R4 around

R14:  (ch 2, 1 sc) in the sp between the ch 2 and 1st sc of the round, (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) in each ch-1 sp around,do NOT sl st to join

R15: ch 2, skip the next 2 ch-1 spaces and beginning in the next ch-1 sp work: (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around, do NOT sl st to join

R16: work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) around the ch 2 at the beginning of R15, work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around, do NOT sl st to join

R17: work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around

You may wish to repeat R17 one or two more times for some extra length if you like your fingerless mitts to be a little bit longer.  I prefer mine to reach the edge of my knuckles but this is totally a personal preference!

Use an invisible finishing technique to finish off. Not sure how to do this? View this tutorial for help:

  1. I just made these, at least I’ve made one so far and I’m about to start the second. I didn’t have the same yarn, so I used premier yarns serenity. It’s also a bulky weight 5 yarn, but I think it’s probably thicker than the unique yarn. I didn’t need as many stitches around, and I didn’t need quite as many rows of either ribbing or main, and the mitts are quite thick. But I’m really going to enjoy wearing them as they will be very warm and still leave my fingers free for manipulating objects.

    I tried a different finger Glove pattern and it was not working for me. Thanks for this one! I’ll probably modify it to use with worsted weight, just using the measurements and method.

  2. Hi Jean, I hope you find the pattern easy to follow! Let me know if you have any questions, I’d be happy to help.

    All the best,
    Rhondda

  3. I hope these mittens are easy to do. I had a knitting pattern but lost it and can’t remember the web site.

  4. Looking for an easy mitts for kids that have the option of a flap for covering fingers.

  5. This is my favorite free pattern of yours (right now, lol!). Thanks for participating in the Crochet the Winter Blues Away giveaway!

  6. Thank you for posting such a beautiful free pattern. It will be on my to do list this year.

  7. I just love this whole set. Thank you so much Rhondda, hope i can find the yarn here. As always beautiful work!

    Hugs,
    Sharon

  8. Hi Cathy 🙂 I do not have copy and paste disabled so you should still be able to use that method if you wish – but it is simpler to use the print friendly printer option included in the post. Here is the blog post I wrote to help people with printing my posts! Hope this helps, Rhondda

  9. How do I print off the patterns? I am having a problem doing this. I can’t even copy and past.

  10. Hi! The thumb hole is created in round 15 when you skip the next Two chain 1 spaces. It creates a hole where your thumb goes through. The stitches you skip remain unworked and will be on the outer edge of the mitt on the outside of your thumb.

    The next round works over the ch2 from the beginning of round 15 which forms the edge of the mitt between the thumb and forefinger. Hope this helps! Rhondda

    R15: ch 2, skip the next 2 ch-1 spaces and beginning in the next ch-1 sp work: (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around, do NOT sl st to join

    R16: work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) around the ch 2 at the beginning of R15, work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 sc) into each ch-1 sp around, do NOT sl st to join

    I responded by email on Saturday but wanted to make sure the response was on the page in case others have the same question 🙂

    Thanks! Rhondda

  11. my pattern I slip stitch the ribbing in the back loops,then I crochet in the ends…24 sc. this is row 1-crochet 4 more rows..at the end of row 5 ch.1..turn,sc in each sc (24) ch 1 turn sc across.repeat this process 4 more times. At the end of the last row (row 11) you will crochet in the rnd.for 8 more rows. I use a marker at the beginning of each row. This gives you 6 rows for the thumb.
    .

  12. Found your pattern looks great and easy. My problem was in getting the thumb to work in. You show no pic of where or how it begins or what round. Do you have a picture or tell me what round it starts…. Thanks and the pattern of sc, ch1, sc, in the space before on round a picture of how it works would work for me. I am not a complete beginner but it is so simple i am missing it. Lol. thanks for any help you can give. Love the ear warmer and fingerless gloves. My Neice wants set.

  13. These Joyful patterns are wonderful. I like your details for those of us who are not experts. Thanks so much.

  14. Thank you so much for the Beautiful pattern. I just love this and want to make for myself!

    Hugs
    Sharon K.

  15. Hi, this looks great but is the pattern in US or UK terminology please?

  16. Thank you for the info. I can’t wait to try making the ear warmers and fingerless mitts, if I do it correctly, looks like I’ll have some Christmas presents LOL.

  17. Thank you for another great pattern.
    I am looking forward to trying this out. I have the perfect yarn.
    I want to add this one to the top of my list.

  18. Love both these patterns. Have to add to my looooong list. Thank you!
