Looking for some crochet ideas to keep your hands warm this winter? Then these crochet hand warmers might just be the right thing for you to make! It’s an easy, beginner-friendly pattern that you can easily adjust to your hand size.
These stylish Tweed Crochet Hand Warmers would make a great addition to your winter fashion accessory. The pattern is simple and works up in no time! The beautiful texture and the smaller crochet hook for this yarn weight will create a slightly denser crochet fabric which is great for keeping your hands nice and warm.
About the stitch
Here is another thing about this pattern that makes it so easy. The pattern uses half double crochet stitches, which are one of the basic crochet stitches. But to create this beautiful texture, the half double crochets are worked into the third loops. If you don’t know where the third loop is, it’s located just under the front loop. I made a Crochet Neck Warmer Cowl that is using the same stitch and the same yarn. So, you can wear it as a set! There is also a quick video demonstration on how to make the cowl, where you can see how to do the foundation stitches and half double crochet stitches in the 3d loop.

Easy / Beginner
Length: 8″ (20cm)
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) crochet until you reach 6.5″ before you stitch the sides together.
16 Sts x 12 rows in pattern = 4″ (10cm)
Yarn: I used We Crochet Brava Tweed in Rosefinch (worsted, 7% Premium Acrylic, 3% Viscose, 218yds)
Amount: approx. 120yds (0,5 skein)
Alternatively, you can use any medium worsted #4 yarn.
Crochet hook: 4.5mm (7).
Scissors, yarn needle.
Abbreviations (US Terms)
Ch = chain
St(s) = stitch(es)
HDC = half double crochet
Crochet Hand Warmer Pattern Notes
- The pattern uses foundation HDC. Alternatively, you can use a foundation chain and one row of half double crochets.
- The gloves are worked flat lengthwise in back and forth rows, then sewn together on the side of the thumb.
- The Ch 1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch.
- You can make shorter or longer gloves by chaining less or more for your foundation chain.
- You can make wider or narrower gloves by working more or fewer rows.
Make 34 Foundation HDC or until you reach your desired length. You can watch this video demonstration of the Tweed Cowl where I used foundation half double crochets. Alternatively, you can chain 35 and work one row of half double crochets, starting from the second chain from the hook.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Insert your hook in the third loop (just under the front loop) and work a HDC. Continue working HDCs in each of the third loops of the stitches across the row (34).
Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you reach 5.5″ (small), 6.5″ (medium) and 7.5″ (large).
Sew the two sides together with the yarn needle, leaving a hole for your thumb.
Start from the bottom, stitch 17 stitches together, then stitch 6 stitches on one side only to make a thumb hole. Don’t make the slip stitches too tight, the seam should easily stretch together with the glove.
Join yarn in one of the corners around the thumb hole and make 6 HDC stitches, then one HDC right in the corner as you go around the side, and then another 6 HDC along the other side. Place one HDC in the corner and slip stitch to first stitch. (14 stitches)
Weave in all ends and it’s done!
