These Herringbone Crochet Fingerless Gloves are all about keeping it simple and stylish. They’re comfy and add a bit of flair, making them perfect for cooler fall weather. So, whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been crocheting for a while, they’re a fun project you can totally make your own.
The herringbone stitch gives these gloves a sleek and modern texture, making them a great addition to any fall accessory collection. Let’s dive into crafting your own pair for warmth and style!
It’s an easy crochet pattern, suitable for advanced beginners or intermediate-level crocheters. The herringbone stitch is the star here, and it’s the only stitch you’ll need. The design is simple too: create a flat rectangle with back-and-forth rows, then sew the sides for your glove. Super easy, right?
About the Yarn
I used Lionbrands Two of Wands Color Therapy in Nutmeg. (100% Acrylic, 246yds/225m). I love working with this yarn. It’s incredibly soft and just right for making warm, snug fall and winter items. My fingerless crochet gloves turned out wonderfully cozy and soft. To give you the details, it’s an Acrylic yarn, falls into the 4 Medium / Worsted category, and offers a generous 246 yards (225 meters) to work with.
There are plenty of colours to choose from, so pick something that speaks to you!
Herringbone Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern
Easy / Intermediate
Length: 8″ (20 cm)
Width of the assembled glove (small size): 3″ (7.5cm)
To find out your glove size, measure around the widest part of your hand (excluding the thumb) with a tape measure.
Small = 7″ (18cm)
Medium = 8″ (20cm)
Large = 9″ (23cm)
Make the width approx 1.5″ (4cm) less than your actual hand measurement. E.g. If your hand measures 8″ around (excluding the thumb) until you reach 6.5″ before you stitch the sides together.
13 Sts x 12 rows in Herringbone Half Double Crochet = 4″ (10cm)
Yarn: I used Lionbrands Two of Wands Color Therapy in Nutmeg. (100% Acrylic, 246yds/225m).
Yardage: You’ll need less than one skein, approx. 100yds/91m for one pair.
Alternatively, you can use any medium worsted #4 yarn.
Crochet hook: 5.5mm
Scissors, yarn needle.
Abbreviations (US Terms)
Ch = chain
St(s) = stitch(es)
Crochet Pattern Notes
- The gloves are worked flat lengthwise in back-and-forth rows, then sewn together on the side of the thumb.
- The pattern uses foundation herringbone half double crochet stitches instead of the usual starting chain. Alternatively, you can make a foundation chain.
- The Ch 1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.
- Adjust the size of your gloves by making longer foundation rows in the beginning (for the length) and by working more or fewer rows (for the width).
Measure around the widest part of your hand (excluding the thumb) with a tape measure. Make the width 1.5″ (4cm) less than your actual hand measurement. For example, if your hand measures 7″ around (excluding the thumb), work the pattern until you reach 5.5″.
- 7″ (small) – width of glove 5.5″
- 8″ (medium) – width of glove 6.5″
- 9″ (large) – width of glove 7.5″
Herringbone Crochet Fingerless Gloves Written Instructions
Row 1: Make 26 foundation herringbone half double crochet stitches
(Alternatively, you can start with a chain: Chain 28. Row 1: Starting from the third chain from your hook, work a HHDC in each chain across the row. (total 26 stitches). Continue to Row 2.)
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Work a HHDC in first St and each St across the row (26).
Repeat row 2 until you reach: 5.5″ (small), 6.5″ (medium) and 7.5″ (large).
When you reach your desired width, fasten off and cut the yarn, leaving approx. 25 inches tail for sewing the sides together.
Sew the two sides together with the yarn needle, leaving a hole for your thumb.
Begin sewing 2 inches down from the top. Leave about 1.5 inches for your thumb and continue sewing the remaining part.
Note: When you reach the thumb hole, keep sewing on one side only (not too tight) for the length of the thumb hole (about 6 stitches). This way, you won’t need to cut the yarn.
Make both gloves exactly the same way; there is no left or right.
Fasten off and weave in all ends. Done!
I hope you like this simple & easy design and enjoyed making these fingerless gloves with me!
