Inspiration

My hands always seem to be cold. If I wash my hands, they’re cold. Go outside, cold. No matter what I do they can’t help but get cold. Thankfully my husband’s hands are always warm and can warm them right up. However, when he’s not around I need something nice and toasty to keep them warm. Since I do so much computer work though, whatever I crocheted had to have open fingers so I could type. The goal behind this design was to be functional and warm, and so the Bobble Fingerless Gloves were born.

Construction

Like socks, crochet gloves and mittens have always intimidated me. There’s something about making something for my hands and feet that has always made me nervous. I know they can throw off a lot of other people too, so I wanted to design a pattern that was simple, quick, and beginner friendly. These fingerless gloves start out being worked flat in a rectangle. They are then seamed up along the edge to form the thumb hole, and create the final product of the finished glove. If you’re new to making fingerless gloves, then this is the pattern you need! There’s also a video tutorial available on my Youtube channel that walks you through each step of making these. You’ll be a fingerless glove pro in no time at all. You can find all 3 of the pattern sizes (small, medium, and large) available in the discounted ad free PDF!

Yarn

Because I wanted to make sure that my hands would stay warm in these gloves, I decided to use a bulky weight yarn. I chose one of my favorites, Lion Brand Color Made Easy. This weight 5 bulky yarn is one of the softest acrylic bulky yarns out there, and comes in such a great selection of colors. By using bulky yarn, you’re able to make a bunch of these pairs of fingerless gloves in no time! If you don’t have access to Lion Brand Color Made Easy, I recommend using another bulky weight yarn like Bernat Softee Chunky. Color Made Easy is still my favorite pick out of the two, but the Bernat option is a great alternative.
