Free Crochet Pattern: Cable Fingerless Gloves

(Shown in Red Heart With Love Pewter)

These fingerless gloves were made to match my cable ear warmer, you can find the matching ear warmer pattern here: Cable Earwarmer

If you have any questions or run into any problems with the pattern please don't hesitate to ask. Following the pattern is a photo tutorial for the rows some people have said they have issues with (rows 3-5).

Thanks for stopping by! 
-Jenni


Skill Level: Intermediate 

Size: Women's
As a guide the circumference measurements of my hands are as follows; 
Around top of hand at knuckles = 8"
Around wrist = 6.5"
If your measurements are larger maybe try going up a hook size? These fit my own hands perfectly.

Supplies: 
Red Heart With Love Yarn, approx. 150-180 yds.
Tapestry needle
Scissors

Stitches (US terms):
Ch - Chain
Dc - Double Crochet
Dc2tog - Double Crochet 2 Together
Fpdc - Front Post Double Crochet
Bpdc - Back Post Double Crochet
Fptr - Front Post Treble Crochet
Sc - Single Crochet
Sk - Skip
Sl st - Slip Stitch
Notes:
-Ch 2 counts as a dc for the end of row stitch count.
-Joins are made with slip stitch & joined to the dc not the ch 2.
-Gauge: 4 stitches & 2 rows = 1"

Row 3 Cable Photo Tutorial (click images to view larger): 


Here's what you should have after you finish row 2:


Row 3: Ch 2, dc in same and in 2 more. Skip 3.


Fptr around next 3.


Now count back 5 stitches, Fptr around the 1st skipped.


Fptr 2nd skipped.



Fptr around 3rd skipped. 



Dc in next 9. This will bring you around to the other side of the glove where you will repeat exactly the same thing: Skip 3, fptr around next 3. Now count back 5 stitches, Fptr around the 1st skipped, fptr 2nd skipped, fptr around 3rd skipped. Dc in last 5. (18 dc, 12 fptr)

Row 4: Ch 2, dc in same and in 2 more. Fpdc around 6. The first 3 fpdc's can be a little difficult, they are hidden behind other stitches.
(first fpdc made)


The 2nd will be hidden even more.

(2nd fpdc made)


And the third is the most hidden, just push those stitches on top to the left a little so you can get to it.

(3rd fpdc made)

(4th fpdc made)

(5th fpdc made)

(6th fpdc made)


Dc in 9, this will bring you around to the other side of the glove and you will repeat the exact steps we just did: Fpdc around 6, dc in last 5. Join. (18 dc, 12 fpdc)

  3. Thank you for this lovely pattern! It, along with your video and photos, are very easy to follow. I am currently on my third pair, and would share pictures if I could, especially to show you I incorporated a second color for the cable. This is the link to my pin of a matching set with the ear warmers:
