Left glove Gloves, unworn Glove texture

I made these gloves for typing after my knuckles got cold too many times.  They were designed after a pair I found on Crochet Pattern Central called ‘Shell Lace Fingerless Gloves’.  This is the first time I have ever made gloves or even two crocheted items that are identical!  It’s an experience I will repeat sparingly.


  • Size 30 crochet thread, any colour
  • 3.25 crochet hook (US D3)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors



Ch 36.  Join with sl st to form ring.  Ch 2.

Rnd 1: Dc 35, joining with a sl st.  Ch 2.

Rnd 2: Rep Rnd 1.

Use the V stitch for 2 ½”, or until you reach the cuff length you want (including all of the palm up to the thumb hole.)  End the last rnd as usual, but instead of working in rnds, now work in rows for 4 more rows.  At the end of row 4, do not turn.  Ch 3 and sl st to form a ring again.  Ch 2, work 4 rnds in V st.  Ch 1, work 2 rnds in single crochet.



Join thread to the top of the thumbhole and sc 19 around.

Ch 1.

Rnd 2: Sc 19.  Sl st, ch 1.  (19 sts)

Rnd 3: (Dec, sc 2) 4 times.  Dec, sc 1.  Sl st, ch 1.  (14 sts)

Rnd 4: Sc 14.  Sl st.


Follow directions again to make glove 2.

    I love this pattern for the fingerless gloves! Thank you for sharing it.

    I’d like ask about the pattern on the pics, mostly about the close up. It’s cool. I think it’s not a simple V stitch. It looks different.

  3. Gabi says:

    In case of V stitch lots of almost perfect V-s clinging each other. Look at this video at 2:00.
    I was asking, because it really looks different.
    Anyway it doesn’t matter.
    The gloves are nice.


  4. Katrina says:

    Actually a normal v-stitch is double crochet, chain, double crochet. But I think it looks a lot nicer your way.

  5. Katrina says:

    It is hard to get them identical, I have been crocheting for 25+ years & still never get the tension the same twice-so my sister told me to crochet a few rows of one, then a few rows of the other and alternate-so tension problems don’t matter so much. I don’t know if that’s a problem for you, but it helped me.

    • Katy says:

      Neat. But I don’t think I would enjoy doing that, and I used the same ball of yarn for both gloves; I only had one ball of that yarn. It’s funny when I washed them: they shrank to doll size! But luckily they stretched out again. Oh, and recently I dyed my gloves in old coffee, so they’re a walnut brown. That was fun!

  6. Shirley says:

    What is a V stitch? I know I’m showing my ignorance, but I don’t know. Shirley

    • Katy says:

      A V stitch, starting how I say in the pattern, is like this:
      Ch 2, dc 2 in 2nd st from hk, skip 1 st, dc 2 in next st, repeat around. For the part with rows you chain two at the end, because it is double crochets. Those, for me, always take two chains.
      That may be wrong. I haven’t made anything with a V stitch in a very long time, so I’m a little rusty to all but single crochet and variations of the single crochet. I will have to make a second pair, won’t I? Ha ha, that will be funny: me trying to figure out my own pattern! Priceless…

  7. Cindy says:

    Cool, Can’t wait to get started on a pair. Will probably be making a bunch for next Christmas..Yeah! Thanks for sharing your pattern.

    Hi. I just wished to advise you that some elements of your web site are tricky to scan for me, as I’m colour blind. I am afflicted by tritanopia, but there are other kinds of colour blindness that will also get issues. I will read most of the site Okay, and those elements I have difficulties with I am able to read by using a adapted browser. However, it would be nice if you would keep in mind we colour-blind surfers whilst doing your next website redesign. Cheers.

    hi there, i just finished making up your glove pattern. it worked out beautifully. I aswell had a moment of pause when tackling your vstich because yours is a touch different in the picture than a regular v stitch. i used your picture as a guide and it came out marvelously. It also worked up in only an hour which is great for me tonight! I wanted something quick i could make up in green to wear to work tomorrow for earth day. Thankyou so much!!!

  11. no-name-given says:

    Hey mate, thanks for sharing but this page isn’t vewable in Firefox it is doubled up.

    • Katy says:

      What are you talking about? It’s not doubled! I think you’re computer, or your Internet connection, is having problems. It works great on my browser. What operating system are you using? I’ve got Windows 7. That’ll make a difference too! But thanks anyway!

  12. no-name-given says:

    Hey man , thanks 4 sharing but this post is hard to read when using IE it is showing only half the page.

    • Katy says:

      Well, my computer screen is 17″ from one side to the other and 9 3/4″ from top to bottom, so I can see it just fine, even if occasionally my slideshows jumble up at the top of my screen. Ah, well. Could you please tell me what an “IE” is?

  13. Gabi says:

    IE= internet explorer

  14. redtube says:

    FYI, your blog doesn’t seem ideal in Internet Explorer.

    Hey, I recently started reading your blog – thank you for the good work. Just wanted to let you know that it’s not showing up properly on the BlackBerry Browser (I have a Tour). Either way, I’m now subscribed to the RSS feed on my PC, so thanks!

  18. Jane Pingtown says:

    I love these gloves! Thanks 4 sharing!

  20. Katy says:

    Thanks! I’m glad you like them!
    Recently I’ve been knitting hats. I’ll post a pattern soon!

  21. Moneca Loring says:

    Please explain simply on how to creat the thumb opening.

    • Katy says:

      Hi, Moneca!
      Okay, you start by crocheting up to the bottom of the thumb opening. Turn your work and crochet a row backwards, and then forwards, etcetera. And once the gap is complete you go in rounds again.
      I hope that helps. Thanks for reading my blog!

      • Moneca Loring says:

        i’m new to gloves.Please be detailed.How many stitches to make gap going backwards & forwards how do you not go in rounds.Do you have a video to show this or somewhere I can find one.
        Tx Moneca

    Sorry about that. I was trying to remember how it was done. In the pattern I said this:

    “Use the V stitch for 2 ½”, or until you reach the cuff length you want (including all of the palm up to the thumb hole.) End the last rnd as usual, but instead of working in rnds, now work in rows for 4 more rows. At the end of row 4, do not turn. Ch 3 and sl st to form a ring again. Ch 2, work 4 rnds in V st. Ch 1, work 2 rnds in single crochet.”

    So after the V-stitched part, where you would join your last round with a slip stitch, you don’t. You turn the glove around, chain 2, and go backwards, as a row. And then you do it again at the other end, and again twice more. The last round should be in the correct direction–right to left. Then you chain 3 and slip stitch on the chain-3 from the beginning of the round, completing the circle again. And you work four rounds. And then two single-crochet rounds.

    I don’t have any videos, unfortunately, of anything. So I hope this helps instead! ^_^
