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!

Difficulty level

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 Theory 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!

Yardage: You’ll need less than one skein, approx. 100yds/91m for one pair.

Alternatively, you can use any medium worsted #4 yarn.

HHDC = herringbone half double crochet

FHHDC = foundation herringbone half double crochet

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).

Sizing

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.

Assembling:

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!
