The materials you need to crochet a pair of gloves are:

  • Worsted weight yarn in a light color (for the body of the gloves) and a darker color (for the cuff and fingers)
  • A set of 5.5 mm crochet hooks
  • A pair of scissors
  • Stitch markers if desired

Step 2: The Pattern

The pattern for crochet gloves is simple. You will begin by crocheting a chainless foundation chain that is equal to the desired length of your glove.

For example, if you want a pair of medium-sized gloves, you will start with a chainless foundation chain that is 24 inches long. Next, work single crochets in the Foundation Chain until it measures 1 inch from end to end.

Now, turn your work so that the wrong side is facing and begin working double crochets in the same line as your single crochets. When you reach the end of this line, turn your work so that the right side is facing and continue working double crochets up the next 1 inch, until you reach the top edge of the Foundation Chain.

Finally, join your stitches together by slinging them over your left hand’s index finger, threading the yarn underneath, and pulling tight. Cut off the yarn, leaving a 3-inch tail.

Step 3: The Cuff

Once you have completed the Foundation Chain and the Double Crochets, it is time to begin working on the Cuff of your gloves. For this part of the gloves, you will work double crochets in the same line as your Foundation Chain stitches.

However, instead of turning your work after each row (as you did in step 2), you will turn your work after every 2 rows. Once you have completed 8 rows (or desired length), join your stitches together by slinging them over your left hand’s index finger and threading the yarn underneath, and pulling tight. Cut off the yarn, leaving a 1-inch tail.

Step 4: The Fingers

Now it is time to start working on the fingers of your gloves. For this part of the gloves, you will work single crochets in the same line as your Foundation Chain stitches.

Instead of turning your work after each row (as you did in step 2), you will turn your work after every 3 rows. Once you have completed 6 rows (or desired length), join your stitches together by slinging them over your left hand’s index finger and threading the yarn underneath, and pulling tight. Cut off the yarn, leaving a ¾-inch tail.

Step 5: Finishing

Now it is time to finish up our crochet gloves! First, weave in any stray ends that remain on either side of your work. Next, cut off any excess yarn that remains on either side of the glove (approximately ½ inch).

Finally, attach a stitch marker to one end of each strand of yarn that remains and use a pair of scissors to cut these strands at their stitch markers – do not cut through the glove itself!

Now enjoy wearing warm crochet gloves all winter long!
