Women’s Ripple Fingerless Gloves – Free Crochet Pattern

Women's Ripple Fingerless Gloves - Free Pattern by EyeLoveKnots, Contributor Post for The Stitchin' Mommy | www.thestitchinmommy.com

This pattern was designed by Alexandra of EyeLoveKnots, exclusively for The Stitchin’ Mommy.

A little before Valentine’s Day, I started working on a romantic-like project to share with you all using the Ripple pattern and working in the rounds, but the color changes and shifting starting point forced me to frog it and change gears. Since then, I have revisited working the Ripple pattern in the round and came up with these fun Ripple Fingerless Gloves!

Gauge:

14 DC by 8 Rows = 4″ by 4″

Finished Size:

This pattern contains instructions for two sizes. Both are 3.75″ wide, but worked either 6.75″ in length to cover your wrist or 9.25″ in length to reach mid arm.

Notes:

  • I was able to work up the 6.75″ long pair of gloves up in just over an hour, and the 9.25″ long pair of gloves up in just less than an hour and a half.
  • The beginning chain counts in all rounds except the thumb hole.
  • I chose to carry up my yarn using my How to Carry Up Yarn in the Round method so there were minimal ends to weave in.
  • I worked two different color sequences. The first (with pink and yellow) was worked every two rounds, beginning and ending with pink. The second (with sage and ivory) was worked as seven rounds in sage, two rounds in ivory, two rounds in sage, seven rounds in ivory.
  • At the end of the rounds, it’s instructed to DC into the 1st chain. This DC will be to the right of the beginning chain.
  • Join to the top of the beginning chain 2, not the first stitch.
  • Watch for turning and joining instructions as they are not throughout.
  • If you need a larger thumb hole, work one more round with no join.
  • If you need a larger glove to better fit around your knuckles, try going up a hook size. You can always drop down a hook size somewhere through the pattern if you need it tighter is certain spots.
  • Longer glove instructions are shown in parenthesis ( … )
  • I worked my final join as an invisible one. You can view a photo tutorial of this in my Newborn Twin Chunky Beanie post.
  • There is a visible seam, but it is kept on the inside of your arm and not noticeable unless looking at the inside of your arm.
