Scrap Heart Fingerless Gloves



Here's the Scrap Heart Fingerless Gloves pattern I was working on.  Hope you like it.

Materials

Worsted Weight Yarn in White, Pink and Red,  such as Caron Simply Soft Brites yarn
G Hook, such as Clover Soft Touch 4.0-mm Crochet Hooks, Size G
Stitch Markers (I used safety pins)
Tapestry Needle

Gauge
SHELL plus 2 chs (pattern repeat) = 1",  4 rows (SHELL row, dc row 2 times) = 1 1/4"
4 row of ribbing = 1", 10 scs = 2 "

Special Stitches

SHELL--Do 2 double crochets (dcs) in same stitch(st), chain (ch) 1, do 2 more dcs in same st.


BLO--Back Loop Only--attach the yarn only in the back loop of the stitch



Abbreviations

Ch(s)--chain(s)     sc(s)--single crochet(s)  BLO--Back Loop Only
st(s)--stitch(es)     sl st--slip stitch              dc(s)--double crochet(s)
sk--skip               beg--beginning              sc2tog--single crochet 2 together


Sizing

This glove is made for a medium sized wrist and hand.

The heart pattern repeats every 5 sts.  If you need to increase the size of the glove and 5 sts is too much, you could add on one extra st on each side (along the thumb and the pinky) of the glove and do an extra dc (3 dcs instead of 2), also add one ch on each side.  If you need to decrease, you can try decreasing by one st on each side.  You would do the corresponding number of rib rows to the number of stitches you decide to do.  You would also need to adjust the thumb.

Here's a tutorial from Keeping Things Simple on how to measure you hands to get a custom fit.

Ribbing
With G hook and White Yarn, ch 11
Row 1:  Sc in second ch from hook and across (10 scs)

Before moving on to the next step weave in all the loose ends.

Thumb and Fingers

I recommend making the thumb because it will hold the glove in place on your hand, but the fingers are optional.

With Fingers

Without Fingers

Thumb
Rnd 1: Attach White Yarn to first of 8 dcs on thumb,  sc in same st and in each dc, 2 scs in side of pink dc, 6 scs in back of scs on ch-6 sp, 2 scs in next pink dc, sl st in first sc.


Attach in first dc

do 2 scs in side of pink dc (on each side)

do one sc in the opposite side of the 6 scs on the 6 ch

Rnd 2:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in next two scs, sc2tog, sc in next 3 scs, sc2tog, sc in next 7 scs, sc2tog, sl st in first sc.

Rnd 3:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in next two scs, sc2tog, sc in next 2 scs, sc2tog, sc in next 6 scs, sc2tog, sl st in first sc.

Rnd 4:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in next two scs, sc2tog, sc, sc2tog, sc in next 5 scs, sc2tog, sl st in first sc.

Rnd 5:  Ch 1, sc in same st and in each sc around, sl st in first sc.

Rnd 6:  Repeat Rnd 5, fasten off and weave in ends.



Fingers

Put on glove, mark with st markers in the spaces between you fingers.  *Attach White Yarn on one side, ch 2 and attach to opposite side, fasten off. Weave in ends.* Repeat 3 times.







You will be doing three rows of scs in rounds.  Attach the white yarn on the palm side of the glove, do two scs on the palm side, 2 scs in the side of the ch (or side of the glove depending on the finger), 2 scs on the back side of the glove and 2 scs on the side of the the other ch (or the side of the glove), then sl st into the first sc, ch 1 and sc in each st around two times then fasten off.  As you add fingers you will actually be stitching into the side of the previous finger.  Fasten off ends and weave in.

    1. I'm glad you like them. If you go to Ravelry you can see the color combos that other crocheters have used for this pattern. The possibilities are endless.

  17. Beautiful pattern! I would love to try my hand (pun intended) :) at it! How many skeins/yards of each color yarn do you need?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just one skein per color. You'll need the most of white and then about 100 to 150 yds of the red and pink.

  18. This is my first attempt to crochet fingerless gloves. I am in need of some clarification. When attaching the white in the ch-1 space before ch-3 sp, instructions reads to ch-1. *Ch-1, shouldn't it be a sc? And am I to make a ch1 before proceeding on to the dc's?

    Rnd 6-9 says to repeat rnds 4 (alternating red and pink on Rnd 4) and 3, 2 times. Shouldn't white be incorporated into that alteration? Please help!

    Thank you.

    1. You ch 1 to attach the white yarn to the colored yarn and then you ch 1 to give it a little room to do the dc in the space. Only repeat the instructions between the * *s.

  22. Hello. Wonderful design (and photos!) but I'd like to do the gloves in one solid color. Is it easy or possible to do the pattern in continous rows?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You could probably do it, you might have to sl st to the spot you need to start at for each row.
