These simple fingerless gloves are such a great gift for women and teens. They’re useful and quick to make. The free crochet pattern for these gloves comes in three women’s sizes.
The half double crochet stitch is an easy way to get texture, without fancy stitches. To get the benefit of that hdc texture we’re working in rows. So we’ll crochet on both sides of the fabric.
Seam them up, leaving the thumbhole open and you’re all set. Women’s fingerless gloves make fabulous gifts for teachers, neighbors, nurses. Anyone who appreciates warm hands on your list!

The yarn I used to make these gloves is from Hobby Lobby-Yarn Bee Secret Soft. It’s super soft and shiny. It’s a #4 medium worsted weight yarn so any similar yarn will work up perfect.
I also made several of these in Red Heart Super Saver and Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn. I made a bunch of various colors for my kids. You can get the child size pattern here.
These beginner friendly fingerless gloves are crocheted with the half double crochet. This is one of my favorite basic stitches. It works up quickly and easily.
