It’s always a struggle trying to find working batteries in my house so when i took some out of one of the kids toys, it had just enough charge left to take pictures~
Here is what i hope is a helpful tutorial on how to make my awesome fingerless gloves pattern!
The glove pattern uses back post double crochet (bpdc) to create the ridges on the glove. I am left handed, so if you’re right handed then just do an extra round 2 for the glove part~ that way the ridges stay on the outside of the glove!!
**so i just looked it up, and i guess the actual stitch i’m using is Front Post Double Crochet! Either way, whichever stitch you’re more comfortable using to create the ridges works either way!!**
Here is a link to a front & back post double crochet how-to:
Now for my gloves:
First start with chain 9, then double crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook and double crochet across, then chain 2 and turn.
For the next row, Back Post Double Crochet in the next post and in each post across
To do this stitch (BPDC) , yarn over, then stick your hook behind the double crochet stitch from the previous row
then yarn over and pull the yarn back through the post
then double crochet as usual
Here is what the other side of the stitch looks like:
And here is what the next BPDC in the same row looks like:
The last bpdc in the row is done in the very last dc-post, here is what it looks like:
(the rows will even out as you go along!)
You will continue crocheting one row double crochet, then one row bpdc until the cuff fits around your wrist/arm:
The next step is to fold the cuff in half with the ridges sides touching each other and then slip stitch across:
Then you will turn the cuff inside out and chain 1 and turn:
Now sc aound the edge of the cuff , about 27-30 sc as evenly spaced as possible:
then slip stitch into the first sc of the round, chain 2 and turn:
For the next round, you will dc in each sc around, then sl st into the beginning ch-2, chain 2 and turn:
(pic of sl st in beginning ch-2)
For the next round, bpdc in each dc post around:
For the rest of the glove pattern, you will alternate rounds of dc and bpdc (make sure the ridges are facing out!) When the glove is as long as you want it to be you will crochet the thumb round next. The thumb round is a double crochet round.
Chain 2, turn, dc into the first 4 dc, then chain 5:
then skip the next 4 stitches and dc into the 5th one:
then dc in each stitch the rest of the way around, sl st, chain 1 but do not turn. Then sc in each stitch around, sl st to join, fasten off and enjoy your gloves!!!
