Lacy Fingerless Gloves and Head Band



This was my go-to project this year. These gloves work up quickly and I found a yarn that I just love for this! It's Deborah Norville's Anti-Pill Everyday Yarn. It's so soft and stays looking new even after lots of wear. The gloves take no time at all to work up, so if you need a quick gift, this is perfect. I can make one set of gloves AND the ear warmer head band with one skein of yarn, so this is a thrifty project, too.


Lacy Gloves
Hook - G

One size fits all. If you need to make smaller or larger, you can crochet 4 fewer or 4 more rows on the wrist ribbing. 

(4 rows = 2 rows of  rib =  1 shell and 1 dc.)  

You'll need to adjust your shell/dc count accordingly in the body of the pattern.

Beginning shell = Ch3, dc, ch1 , 2 dc in same space.
Shell = 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc in same space.
Gauge - 3 shells/3 dc (in pattern) = 4"   7 rows of shells = 4"

Pattern:
Ch 10.
Note: For rows 1 through 22 in wrist ribbing, sc in back loop only.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across, ch 1, turn. 9 sc.

Rows 2 - 22: Sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn.

Row 23: Bring row 1 to meet row 22, matching stitches. Sl st row 1 and row 22 together. 11 ridges made.
Do not break yarn. Turn cuff inside out (so sl st edge is inside) and turn cuff so the ridges are running vertically.

Lacy portion:
Row 1:  Ch 3, (dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space (beginning shell made), *sk next sc row on cuff, dc in side of 1st sc in next row, sk next sc row on cuff, shell in side of sc in next row,* repeat between *'s 4 times more. Sk next row end, dc in side of next sc side, sl st in top of beg. ch 3. You may or may not have a complete sc row to put your last dc in. If you can't skip a row, just put it in the next row. You now have 6 shell/dc combos around.

Shell rows 2 - 7: Sl st in next dc and ch sp, beg shell, (dc in next dc, shell in next shell) around, ending with dc in dc, sl st in beg. ch 3.

Row 8: (Creating thumb space) Sl st in next 7 stitches, sl st in ch 1 of shell, beg shell, *dc in next dc, shell in next shell* 4 times, ch 1, sl st in to of beg ch. 3. (You have skipped one shell and 2 dcs to make the thumb opening.)

Row 9: Sl st in next dc & ch 1 space, beg shell, (dc in next dc, shell in next shell) around, ending dc in ch 1 between shells, sl st in top of beginning ch 3. (You've added one dc back into your row.)

Rows 10 - 11: Sl st in next dc and ch 1 space, beg shell, (dc in next dc, shell in next shell) around, ending with sl st in top of beginning ch 3.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
