Free Crochet Pattern: Avery Textured Fingerless Gloves

By Amy Yarbrough – 4 Comments

Looking for a simple fingerless glove pattern? I remember the first fingerless glove pattern I tried. It was very simple but still unique and I made many pairs for people I knew.

With this pattern I wanted to echo the simplicity of that design by working the glove in one piece from the ribbed cuff to the textured palm. If this looks complicated, it’s not! Even crocheting the thumb opening is easy.

The size of this pattern is for larger hands, great for the male members of the family, but it also includes instructions on how to easily adjust the size for any hand size.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 8” (20.5 cm) long and 4 1/2” (11.5 cm) wide, laid flat (fits hand measuring 4 1/2” across palm, with instructions for size adjusting)

Materials:
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 200 yards)
Crochet Hook 4.50 mm
Yarn needle
crochet yarn size 4

Gauge:
7 sc = 2’’
6 rows = 2’’
Gauge Swatch: 2’’w x 2’’h (5 cm x 5 cm) ch 8.
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 7 sc
Row 2 – 6: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 7 sc
Finish off.

Note: Glove is worked sideways and in one piece, from cuff to body.

Adjusting Size
To adjust the size of the glove you will need to add or remove stitches from the foundation chain in even multiples, as well as working fewer rows between Row 4 – 25. For a whole size down or up, I would suggest subtracting or adding 4 stitches from the foundation chain and subtracting or adding the same amount of rows from Rows 4 – 25 before continuing the pattern as before. For a small adjustment, I would suggest only subtracting or adding 2 stitches to the foundation chain and likewise the same number adjustment to the Rows.

Trying the glove on as you go will help you tailor the size more specifically. Adjust the pattern as necessary.
