It’s been a while since I’ve added a free pattern to my blog so let’s change that!
These are my Homespun Fingerless Gloves!
I was inspired after making the adorable Cozy Crochet Mittens from All About Ami! A while ago someone had given me a bunch of Lion Brand Homespun and I really wasn’t sure what to do with it. Then I came across Stephanie’s mittens and BOOM, I had to make them! They are so warm, soft, and COZY!
Here’s a picture of mine. I made a slip stitch cuff instead of her sc cuff but that’s the only difference. I’m obsessed with this green!
I love having a couple options to grab in the cooler months depending on just how cold it is outside. So, I decided to work up a fingerless glove option for myself and thought I would share it with you all here!
Let’s get started!

Lion Brand Homespun – *Note – Homespun yarn can be tricky to work with because it’s a little hard to see the stitches due to the texture but keep at it! It’s worth it!*
Size I 5.5mm hook
Yarn needle to weave in ends
Sizes: One size – measures approx: 4.25″ at the widest part and 6.5″ long. *Note – This glove may feel tight at first but once you stretch it a little it should fit comfortably around your wrist. The thing I’ve noticed about Homespun yarn is that once it stretches it doesn’t really “go back” to its original shape. It doesn’t really have that bounce back feel like other yarns. So, that is why my glove may seem a little tight but don’t worry it will stretch out just fine and fit great. If you feel the need to make it bigger (not all hands are the same size!) you can go up a hook size or add a couple extra rows to your cuff. Your counts will not match mine but the pattern will be worked the same!
Gauge: 6 sc x 6 rows = 2″ x 2″
slst – slip stitch
st(s) – stitch(es)
ch(s) – chain(s)
sc – single crochet
BLO – back loop only – when looking at the top of the stitch, the BLO is the loop that’s farthest from you.
Note 1: The ch 1 at the beginning of each round does NOT count as a stitch.
Note 2: These gloves are worked by doing the cuff first then working the body and finally the thumb.
Note 3: The body of the glove is worked in continuous rounds WITHOUT joining so you will want to use a stitch marker to help keep track of your rounds and stitch counts.
Note 4: When instructed to join, you will do so with a slst.
Note 5: The numbers at the end of each row/round are the correct stitch counts for that corresponding row/round.
Pattern Instructions: (Make 2)
Row 1 – ch 8, slst into the 2nd ch from the hook, slst in each ch to the end, ch 1, turn. – 7 sts
Row 2 – slst in BLO of each ch to the end, ch 1, turn. – 7 sts
Row 3 thru 21 – Repeat Row 2.
Line the edges up and slst the seam together. I insert my hook in the back loop of the 1 edge and the top of the beginning ch of the other edge. When you finish, ch 1, then turn the cuff right side out so the seam is now on the inside of the cuff and continue onto the body of the glove.
Round 1 – sc in each slst row of the cuff. Do not join but continue round 2 in the first st. – 21 sts
Round 2 thru 5 – (place then move your stitch marker in the first st of each round) sc around. – 21 sts
Round 6 – (Thumb hole) sc, ch 6, skip 4 sts, sc to end. – 17 sts + ch 6
Round 7 – sc in each st and in each ch st around. – 23 sts
Round 8 thru 13 – sc around. – 23 sts
Round 14 – slst around, join. – 23 sts
Fasten off and weave in any ends.
THUMB – Reattach yarn with a slst at the any point in the thumb hole, ch 1.
Round 1 – sc 12 sts evenly around, do not join. – 12 sts
Round 2 – sc around. – 12 sts
Round 3 – skip first st, sc around. – 11 sts
Round 4 – skip first st, sc around, join. – 10 sts
Fasten off and weave in any ends.
I hope you love these! Share pics with me when you finish a pair! I’d love to see. 🙂
