My Crochet Pattern Notes
The best part about this project is that you use single crochet throughout. Single crochets and chains are all that you will need. The different looks are made by placing the stitches differently.
These fingerless mitts are worked from the bottom to the top, starting with ribbing worked horizontally and the remainder built onto the long edge of the ribbing.
Each mitt took me 25-30 minutes to make and you can easily get two mitts out of one skein. Since you only use 40 grams, you can probably get two sets of mitts out of the same skein, as long as you are meeting gauge. Imagine making two sets from one skein so you have gifts for two people in only a couple of hours.
Fingerless Mitts or Fingerless Gloves?
This easy project can be called fingerless gloves or fingerless mitts. The name is used interchangeably these days. No matter what you call them, they’re great for adding some warmth and style, leaving your fingers free for texting or typing.
I know many people working in cold offices like to use them while working on their PCs or laptops for that extra warmth without getting in the way.

Available at Michaels. Loops & Threads is the in-house brand.
If this is your first time using a flecked yarn. Just ignore the flecks. They are there to give the yarn its unique characteristics. There is no need to do anything to “hide” them. When you’re seaming or weaving ends, it may be helpful to remove the flecks from those strands only, to make it easier.
Suggested Crochet Hook Size J-10 (6mm), or size needed to meet gauge.
Yarn Needle for weaving ends.
Shell (sh): Work [sc, ch 2, sc] in same st or sp.
Working in back loops: Of the top two loops, the “back loop” is the one furthest away from you.
This crochet pattern is written in US crochet terminology.
ch=chain; rep=repeat; RS=right side; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sl=slip; sp(s)=space(s); st(s)=stitch(es).
All numbers after the colon at the end of an instruction are stitch counts. Use the stitch count to check your work.
When completed, ribbing is 1″ wide and the length is 9″ unstretched, 10.5″ stretched. In main stitch pattern, 6 shells=4″, 9 rounds=3″.
Turning While Working in Rounds
This fingerless mitts pattern is a bit unusual because you will work in joined rounds, but you will turn after each round. That doesn’t mean it’s difficult, though.
This stitch pattern simply looks better when worked with turns. Working on the same side produces a spiraling effect that I wanted to avoid.
You won’t have to turn the mitts inside out each time. Once you have a couple of rounds completed, you will begin simply working from the inside of the mitts then working from the outside.
Free Crochet Pattern Instructions
Row 1: Leaving an 8-10″ strand (for seaming), ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn: 5 sc.
Rows 2-28: Ch 1, working in back loops (see Special Stitches above), sc in first and next 3 sc, work last sc in both loops for stability, turn: 5 sc.
After you repeat row above, begin working in rounds across long edge of ribbing. Do not fasten off.
Ribbing measures 9″ unstretched, approx. 10.5″ when stretched.
Round 1: Ch 1, working into sides of rows of Ribbing, sk first row, sh (see Special Stitches above) into side of next row and into every second row across, without twisting the ribbing, pull the first and last row of the ribbing together and sl st to the first sc, turn: 14 sh.
Tip: Once you’ve joined round 1, you can seam those 5 stitches of the ribbing together, if you like, or wait until later.
Rounds 2-9: Ch 1, *sh in ch-2 sp of next sh, rep from * around, sl st to first sc, turn: 14 sh.
Round 10 (RS): Ch 1, work 2 sc in each ch-2 sp of sh around, sl st to first sc. This will be the right side. Turn the mitt inside-out, if necessary, so this round is on the outside.
Note: Discontinue turning after each round. The remaining rounds are made without turning.
Round 11: Ch 1, sc in first and each of next 21 sc, sk 6 sc, sl st to first sc: 22 sc. (When you sl st to the first sc, 6 single crochet are skipped and there is an opening made for the thumb.)
Rounds 12-13: Ch 1, sc in each sc around, sl st to first sc: 22 sc. Fasten off after last round.
With yarn needle and first strand, seam the first and last rows of the ribbing together, if you haven’t done so already.
With yarn needle, weave in all ends securely.
