Charming Chiq fingerless gloves

Never put down your hook because your wrists or fingers are cold! These chiq gloves are fashionable and practical!


I used Lion brand cashmere yarn ( it's a thin 4 ply yarn feel free to use any brand ) 1 ball made 2 gloves this size with enough left over to make a flower
size J hook

optional ribbon

Round 1
 make 23 foundation double crochet or
Chain 25  (for a bigger or smaller size chain less or more) and dc in the 3rd chain from the hook work 1 dc in each chain **use a stitch marker if needed, this pattern is worked in the round**

Round 2 and 3
*1 fpdc on the first dc, 1 bpds on the nxt * repeat until the end of the round

* this is just like basket weave but we are going to create ridges , so on the 3 rd round your fpdc should match up and your bpdc should match up

Round 4 add in the thumb holes!!!
you can add them in anywear in the round ( if your joining at the beginning isn't that pretty do a few stitches so that will be hidden) chain 3, skip 2 contiune with  the pattern so the all fpdc and bpdc line up

round 5 until your desired length ( I did 7 rounds after the thumb hole round

Continue with the simple pattern of lining up you fpdc and bpdc ( in the chain 3 from the thumb hole just do 2 dc)

Now one you have the length you want sl and chain 2 *fpdc, chain 1,skip 1* repeat until the end of round

weave a ribbon a tie a bow :)
to add a bit or ruffle at the end

ch1 work 2 sc in every post and 4 ( shown) to 6 in every chain space) sl and weave in your ends!

You can make these gloves longer by by doing more rows of the pattern, also try doing an sc border around the top and bottom

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook. Make a magic circle Round 1 Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join. Sides and top of cross Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides. Bottom of the cross When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center. On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.

I am making about 30 of these for my 6 year old to hand out as Christmas gifts at school with mini candy canes in them!
