Men’s Fingerless Gloves Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet the men in your life fingerless gloves for the season. These gloves make a fabulous gift for men, women and children. Anyone and everyone can keep their hands warm in these useful crochet gloves.

Fingerless gloves are great because they keep your hands warm and your fingers free to move. With all the typing we do these days, it’s practically an essential.

These men’s fingerless gloves use the half double crochet stitch. It’s an easy way to get a little interesting texture, without being complicated.

To get the benefit of that hdc texture we’re working in rows. So we’ll crochet on both sides of the fabric to make these gloves.

Make these simple rectangles into gloves with a little sewing. Seam the sides, leave the thumbhole open and you’re all set.

Anyone who appreciates warm hands on your list will love receiving these handmade fingerless gloves.

Fingerless Gloves for the Family

The men’s fingerless gloves include 4 sizes. In the chart below there are measurements by size so you can choose the best fit.

If you’re looking for more sizes, be sure to check out the crochet pattern for Fingerless Gloves for Children and in Women’s sizes too.

These gloves are easy to lengthen also. Just crochet more rows. It’s a great pattern to customize for your exact needs.

If you’re familiar with post stitches, you might also enjoy the Matteo Fingerless Gloves. These crochet gloves have both a matching hat and scarf pattern too.

Yarn

The yarn I used to make these gloves is from Hobby Lobby-Yarn Bee Secret Soft. It’s a #4 medium worsted weight yarn so any similar yarn will work up well.

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 and the women’s sizes pattern here.

Stitch

The half double crochet is one of my favorite basic stitches. It works up quickly and easily. I find the hdc to be one of the best looking stitches for simple projects.
