OMG, It's Almost Christmas Fingerless Mitts - Free Crochet Pattern/Modelo Grátis de Crochet

Every year is the same. In August, I start going on and on about how I need to be knitting/crocheting for Christmas and then December comes and I do everything in a matter of days, so I need super-quick patterns. Discipline is not my forte. Yesterday, I decided to make these fingerless mitts and I think that the end result is something worth sharing. For that reason, here's the pattern.
É sempre o mesmo. Em Agosto, começo a dizer que é preciso começar a trabalhar para o Natal e depois chega a Dezembro e faço tudo no espaço de alguns dias, razão pela qual preciso de modelos rápidos. A disciplina não é o meu forte. Ontem, decidi fazer estas luvas sem dedos e acho que o resultado final até merece ser partilhado. Por isso, aqui fica o modelo.



 

OMG, It's Almost Christmas Fingerless Mitts - Free Crochet Pattern

Materials:

  • 50 gr of DK weight yarn, in Main Colour (MC);
  • 50 gr of DK weight yarn, in Complementary Colour (CC);
  • (100 gr of DK weight yarn if you're going for the single colour option);
  • 4.5mm hook.


My yarn suggestions include:

Instructions (x 2):

Cuff:
  • With MC, chain 30, join to form a circle, being careful not to twist the chain.
  • Row 1: Chain 2, hdc in each chain across, slip stitch to the chain 2 in the beginning to join;
  • Rows 2-12: Chain 2, hdc in each st across, slip stitch to the chain 2 in the beginning to join (this is where you decide how long you want your cuff; less rows means a shorter cuff, more rows a longer one);
  • Break off yarn.
Hand:
  • Row 13: With CC, join yarn in any st of the previous row and chain 1, sc in the same st, sc in the next stitch; *ch 3, skip 2 st, 1 sc in next 3 st*, repeat from * to * until the last chain 3, 1 sc in last st, slip stitch to join;

  7. Tk u for sharing yr pattern & yr talent. I hv two teenaged granddaughters & will be making these for them for Christmas. That is the going trend now: fingerless gloves, legwarmers, arm warmers, wristlets, cell phone cozies, etc. Teens love them - not to mention we older teens. Make what they like & they will wear it. Tks again for sharing!

  10. I made some of these for my nephew's wife last year, she loves them. Now I am making some for a friend I've had since I was about five (I'm 61 now). She had asked me to make a crochet flower to go on a dressy coat she has and I am going to surprise her by giving her some of these that match the flower. Made her some plain grey ones last winter that she likes a lot.

  11. Thanks for sharing your great pattern. I have made a few pairs of these and love them for me & for gifts. Was thinking would like to make a matching hat, so what multiple of stitches do I need to use to increase the size of the circle or to just be able to make an afghan or small baby blanket? Could you help, please. Thanks again.

  12. Hi,

    Are we supposed to have 30 stitches in each row?

    After the first row I now have 29 and am not sure why...

  13. Hello! Thank you for sharing this pattern with us. 😊💖

    I'm confused on row 15 about where the 2 sc goes? I see the first sc goes in the 2nd dc and the asterisk specifies that the rest of the stitches go in the 3rd dc, but there's no specification for the 2 sc. Thank you to anyone who can help me out! Crochet on! 😉

  15. Love this pattern! I'm finding that 30 chains to begin with is too big for my wrist. To make them smaller, how many chains should I start with (don't know what the multiple needs to stay at to keep the shell pattern.) Thanks for your help!

  16. Hi, I love the pattern! I also would like to know how to make them smaller....for a 9 and 11 year old. Thank you!
