Princess In Pink ~ Basic Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern

My beautiful little princess is just adorable! I know I've blogged quite a few times about her, and might even have made some of you slightly jealous because obviously I have the best sister in the world!! lol She is a ray of pink sunshine in my life! She can cheer me up no matter how sad I might be at the time.
I love her to death, so to treat her I crocheted her yet another pair of fingerless gloves! This time in a purply pink colour!
I thought I'd share the pattern with you all!  This pattern makes all sizes! 



Materials:
5.00 Crochet Hook
4.50 Crochet Hook
100g 8ply Yarn
Tapestry or Yarn Needle
Scissors

Size:
Fits all
{Just measure the starting chains to fit around you wrist snug, but not to tight}

Instructions:

Cuff:
Start by making a Slip Knot with your 5.00 crochet hook. Chain 13 Chain Stitches, then Single Crochet into the second chain from your hook. Single crochet in every chain till you reach the end. Chain 2 and single crochet into the next stitch. When crocheting into the stitches only go through the front loop only.
Make as many rows of single crochets as you need to so that it fits snugly around your wrist.
When you've made as many rows as you need, Slip Stitch them together, then turn it inside out.

Left Hand:
Row 1~ Switch over to your 4.50 crochet hook. Chain 1, then single crochet evenly around the side of the cuff. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 2~ Chain 1, crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches (This is known as an increase.) Crochet single crochets around the rest of the cuff. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 3~ Chain 1, crochet a single crochet in the first stitch, then crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches. Crochet single crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 4~ Chain 1, crochet a single crochet in the first 2 stitches, then crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches. Crochet single crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 5~ Chain 1, crochet a single crochet in the first 3 stitches, then crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches. Crochet single crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 6-10~ Chain 1, crochet single crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 11~ Chain 5, skip 11 stitches and single crochet a single crochet in the 12th stitch. (Thumb hole made. If you have bigger thumbs you might want to add an extra chain or two) Single crochet all around, but do not join.
Row 12-19~ Single crochet all around the cuff. When you get to where the thumb hole is, do not crochet around the thumb hole. Instead crochet in the 5 chains you made before. 
Slip stitch and fasten off.

Right Hand:
Row~  Switch over to your 4.50 crochet hook. Chain 1, then single crochet evenly around the side of the cuff. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 2~ Chain 1, crochet single crochets in all the stitches, except the last two stitches. In them you need to crochet 2 single crochets in each of those 2 stitches (This is known as an increase.) Join with a slip stitch. (You are basically mirroring what you did on the Left Hand)
Row 3~ Chain 1, crochet single crochets in all the stitches. When you get to the last 3 stitches you need to crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches. Then crochet a single crochet. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 4~ Chain 1, crochet single crochets in all the stitches. When you get to the last 4 stitches you need to crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches. Then crochet a single crochet in the last 2 stitches. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 5~ Chain 1, crochet single crochets in all the stitches. When you get to the last 5 stitches you need to crochet 2 single crochets in the next 2 stitches. Then crochet a single crochet in the last 3 stitches. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 6-10~ Chain 1, crochet single crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch.
Row 11~  Chain one, crochet single crochets all around the cuff till there is only 12 stitches left. Chain 5, then skip 11 stitches and single crochet into the 12th stitch (aka last stitch). (Thumb hole made. If you have bigger thumbs you might want to add an extra chain or two) Join with a slip stitch.
Row 12-19~ Single crochet all around the cuff. When you get to where the thumb hole is, do not crochet around the thumb hole. Instead crochet in the 5 chains you made before. 
Slip stitch and fasten off.

  1. I really like how basic this pattern is! I like my fair share of frills, but I wanted something a little more plain for summer, and these look perfect! Just a question, though. When crocheting the cuff, is there a reason that there is a turning chain of 2 on the rows? As far as I know, the usual turning chain for a single crochet is only one, so I'm a little confused as to why it'd be two. I'll start out as directed, though, and see if I need to make a small change. :] Thanks for this pattern! Super cute :D

  2. Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like the pattern :) Um well I know the 'proper' way is to only chain one, but i've always preferred making 2 chains, lol It feels like it makes it's straighter, or maybe that's just me being my crazy self :)
    So to answer your question, no it won't effect the pattern if you want to do it with one chain :)

    1. Hi jess! When you've finished a row, you slip stitch into the first stitch of that row. You chain 1 then you start a new row. Etc
      I hope this helped!

  6. hi While making the cuff do you slip stitch at the end of each row? or do you attach at the end of making rows?

  8. Hi, I liked the pattern a lot, it's really easy and versatile. I've just made one pair of mittens but I think I'll make another one but trying to work the cuff in a round to avoid the seem. Have you tried that? I think I will also reduce 1 stich at each side in the last two rows of the hand.

  10. Thank you for posting this, I am a beginner and this might help the rest of my winter go by. I would like to crochet a bunch of these for donation to cancer patience, as one of my co-workers is doing. I just need practice.
