Tips for Crocheting Fingerless Gloves
Most fingerless gloves are worked in the round, although you will find some patterns that are worked flat and seamed. In fact, the easiest wrist warmers are made out of a rectangle that is simply seamed with an opening left for the thumb!
When working fingerless gloves you will often have a separate thumb that is worked. You will usually increase for the thumb shaping (called a thumb gusset) and then after the top of the hand part is worked you will come back and add a few rounds to the thumb area to make it taller (although sometimes it is a good height after the thumb shaping.)
Pay special attention to joining and turning (or not!) in the pattern you are using. Since everyone designs fingerless gloves a bit differently, just keep these things in mind when working your fingerless gloves crochet pattern.
Yarn Options for Crochet Fingerless Gloves
You can use pretty much any yarn to crochet fingerless gloves, from fingering or sock yarn to aran weight yarn or even super bulky yarn. The sky is really the limit!
Keep in mind that these will be worn on the hands and will eventually need to be washed if you wear them enough. So pay attention to the care requirements on the yarn label. Personally I like something that can be thrown in the washer and dryer, such as a premium acrylic or superwash merino wool (although some people cannot wear wool, so keep that in mind if making for a friend).
Now, on to our patterns!!

This 4 color fingerless gloves design is a great way to use up yarn leftover from other projects. My favorite part is that the free pattern is available in 3 different adult sizes. That way you can make sure that your new gloves fit like….well, a glove!
