Safe & Sound ~ Bullion Stitch Fingerless Gloves Pattern

There's something special about drinking hot chocolate on a cold, stormy night a pair of wooly socks, a nice book and a fire that makes you feel safe and sound.
When you think about it, it's the little things that make you feel at home, like hugging your little sister, helping your mum bake cookies, or teasing your brother.

Anyway, I hope these fingerless gloves will help you all feel a little more safe and sound!

What You'll Need:
5.00 Crochet Hook
Ball Point Bodkin or Thick Needle
8ply Yarn
Wool/Tapestry Needle

Cuff :
Make a Slip Knot. Crochet 27 Chain Stitches.
Row 1~Then take your crochet hook and push it into the  second chain from your hook. Now Single Crochet until the end of the row. Crochet only through the front loop.
Row 2 - 30~ Chain 2 then push your crochet hook into the second last single crochet. Continue to make single crochets until the end of the row. Crochet only through the front loop.

{Note: I have quite small wrists, but you can make the wrist wider by adding a few more rows of single crochets.}

When you've made as many rows as you need, Slip Stitch them together, then turn it inside out.

Row 1~ Chain 1, then Single Crochet evenly around the side of the cuff. Join with a slip stitch.

Row 2, 3, 4~ Chain 3, then crochet a Bullion Stitch into the next stitch. *Chain 1, skip one stitch and crochet a bullion stitch into the following stitch. Repeat from the * all around. Join with a slip stitch into the top of chain 3.
Row 5~ This is where you add the hole for your thumb. For each person it's different, so you need to decide now where you want your thumb to be. When you get there make a bullion stitch, then crochet 5 chain stitches (might need to make it 6-7 if you have a bigger thumb) Skip one stitch, then crochet a bullion stitch in that stitch. Continue making bullion stitches and chains all the way around.

Row 6~ Same as row 2, but when you get to where you chained 5 for the thumb hole, only make one bullion stitch into that gap. Otherwise you'll have a very bulky and uneven hand.

Row 7, 8~ Same as row 2.
Row 9, 10~ Single crochets all the way around.
Fasten off, and you are done!

{Note: You can make this for any size person, just measure your wrist and make the ribbing that big plus 4cm.}

Hope you all enjoyed this pattern and that you'll enjoy making these lovely and 
warm fingerless gloves!

  9. Hello Olivia,
    I've also made these gloves and I want to post it to your facebook page. Can you give me a link to your page plz...

  10. Hi! These gloves are fabulous. I'm a crochet beginner but am going to try to make these gloves as they are so beautiful & unique. I've watched the tutorial on how to create bullion stitches but please could you advice how many times you need to wrap to create the bullion stitches in these gloves as the number of times you wrap seems to vary from different tutorials? Many thanks

  11. Hello. I was wondering if this pattern could be used in size 10 lace weight yarn with a size f crochet stick? I love this pattern, and I would love a delicate dainty look. Thank you for the pattern.

  12. Hello Olivia
    I have tried your link to the bullion stitch without success. The link takes me back to this page. Could you send me a new link - maybe there is an error somewhere in the one you mention above. I would love to make these fingerless gloves but, although I have crocheted for many year, I have not come across this stitch before. I think it's beautiful and you are very talented to have thought it up. Thank you Eve
