Free Crochet pattern fingerless gloves

When I first joined etsy I really hoped to sell more crochet items. I tried, and posted many things... they just did not sale. My stamps took off though! :-) I even designed my own fingerless gloves and sold the pattern on etsy. I had two buyers... not complaining, I am happy about that. I just do not want this cute little easy pattern to sit in my computer and not get used... sooooo I am posting it for free :-) I hope you enjoy, it is pretty easy to follow and the pics should help.

  12. I must admit they are lovely and will have to give them a try. I have a web site that I put up about a year ago and not many bites on it either. Just one friend. But that is okay. Take a look if you like, not asking you to buy just comment on it. Left the prices low because it is a hobby for my friend and I. The site is www.crochetedwithlove.com I would appreciate feedback as to what some of you think of it. Thanks for looking and again thanks for the pattern I am going to make some for myself and my daughter. I think she will love them too.

  13. I think your site is great! The problem is getting people to know that it is there. No easy task. Getting a good spot on the Search Engine (at the top) is difficult but can be done. Some people who do not crochet don't realize the time it takes to make the items. Your prices are not high and the work is beautiful. I wish you success.

  14. I found your pattern on a link from Knit and Crochet Now. I LOVE this pattern. Normally, all I do is may baby afghans for gifts and church and they are the basic/variation to the granny square. My girlfriends daughter works at Taco Bell in the drive thru window and her hands get soooo cold. I'm going to surprise her with these - my first pair. Thank you so much. I'm going to check out your store next. Thanks again for your tutorial, pictures (they are very helpful) and your generosity.

  18. I know what you mean about selling-handmade, or even just the patterns! All you can do is just keep trying, and thank you for your free pattern - a lot of my friend's love buying my assortment of crocheted gloves around wintertime!

  23. Loving these in all sorts of colors. have sized them down to fit my 3 yr old and have also added a round of single crochet at the top. Posted pics of some of the ones I've made on Ravelry. Thank you for sharing this.

  24. I came across your gloves on Pinterest. Just love them. I have made them in three sizes by using F hook for small, G for medium, and H for large. I did them in a pretty turquoise sparkle yarn. My nieces love them. I combined a step by not ending with the cuff. I did the sc around the cuff and joined with a slst in the first sc. Then I went on with the pattern. I also allowed a 12-inch tail when starting to sew up the remainder of the cuff. That made one less place to finish off. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. It went really good with a hat pattern I had. So, thanks again.

  25. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to write the pattern and take photos of the steps, AND having the generosity of spirit to share freely. Much appreciated. I will pass your blog onto my crochet circle and we may make these in our group. Your ears may burn. Best wishes, Michele

    1. Hi Sweetie,
      I loved your pattern for these Lacey Fingerless Gloves. My Niece asked for a pair of longer ones. I made them in black and they are so pretty on.
      Thank you for this easy beautiful pattern!!!

  28. Thank you so much for the pattern. I am about to retire after 26 years of teaching and have rediscoverd my passion for crochet. My daughter in law asked me to make a pair of fingerless gloves for her. She's an art teacher and is a very tactile person so she dosn't like her fingers covered. Yours was one of the prettiest patterns I found on Pinterest. Thanks again.

  30. I know you posted this in 2011 but I just found it and I can't wait to try this pattern! It looks so pretty and I love the blue. Can you use worsted weight as well? I'm assuming so. I'm doing my best to use up yarn that I have lying around. I have taken a few years off crocheting and am madly in love with it again. I'm trying a little bit of everything (all quick patterns).

    I too am a Christian, WAHM, with 3DDs, and a homeschooler. With the exception of the military, we sound much the same. Hope all works well and thanks for the pattern.

  31. Thanks Jennifer! I am glad you like the pattern. Worsted weight is fine. Let me know how it goes :)

  32. These were so easy to whip up in no time! - love the simplicity, although so many fun ways to embellish; an extra row of "ruffle", flowers, buttons, etc! Great fit and fantastic tutorial! Thanks so much for sharing ~ very sweet of you!

  36. Hi do you have more patterns for free?
    Thanks so much.

  37. Thanks for this easy pattern! I found it through Pinterest. I made a couple modifications. The row above the thumb hole I did 2 DC instead of the fnst and the next row I dec and joined the hfnst. This made the glove more form fitting over the knuckles. I trimmed it with a bsc. I also did an extra sc on the bottom of the cuff .

  41. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I have attempted to use about half a dozen different crochet patterns for fingerless gloves, and I could not get them to come together well at alll. This one, however, worked out wonderfully, and it was pretty easy and quick.

  42. Thanks for sharing this! I made a pair of your gloves here and then modified the pattern for another pair.

  44. It is 2014 and I just had the need for your pattern for fingerless gloves. The only correction I can make is in Row 10 and 11 you say "Repeat row 2, etc. I think you mean "Repeat Row 3" as Row 2 was done in beginning sc stitches. Either way I have finished the gloves and am pleased. I found that I did not need a row 11 as they were long enough. Thank you again for posting.
