I wanted a lacy, dainty, delicate glove. Something light to wear in the Summer months ahead. I think these look so elegant and lady-like! Don't you agree?

Materials List

1 Skein Bernat Baby, Fingering Weight, 100% Acrylic, White
Size "E" (3.5 mm) Crochet Hook

Yarn Needle

Finished Size

A woman's size Small/Medium


6 dc + 3 Rows = 1" in Pattern

(Pattern is a multiple of 8 + 5 chs if you want to work a swatch first.)


These would be awesome worked in a 100% Cotton, or a Size 3 cotton thread, or even a variegated yarn!

The Pattern

Ch 37
Row 1 (Right Side): Dc in fifth ch from hook, *skip next 3 chs, 5 dc in next ch, skip next 3 chs, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next ch, repeat from * across.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, 2 dc in next ch 1 sp, skip next 3 dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc, * 5 dc in next ch 1 sp, skip next 3 dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc, repeat from * across to last sp, 3 dc in last sp.
Row 3: Ch 4, turn, dc in first dc, * 5 dc in next ch 1 sp, skip next 3 dc, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc, repeat from * across.
Repeat Rows 2 & 3 seven times or until desired length, ending after Row 2.


Do not cut yarn. Work a Crab Stitch (reverse crochet) across the top. Work sc all around both sides and bottom of piece.


With Right Sides Together, slip stitch along side of glove for about 1", leave about a 1 ½" opening for thumb. When seaming is complete, tuck in ends!

Work the 2nd glove the same way!

Thank you! I love mine! I'm thinking about adding fingers to it though - because it would protect my hands when shopping, etc. :)

These are beautiful! Exactly what I was looking for. I don't understand what DC means or what 8 in 5 means. I really want to make these! Can you email me at and give me further instructions?? Thank you!! Great gloves!!!

I appreciate your sharing your own pattern, Ms. Pruitt. I enjoyed crocheting this pair of fingerless gloves. They are the prettiest pair I've seen on the net.

I made a pair in Blue Sky Alapa Silk which is just about the most beautiful thing I have ever made. The weight of this yarn seems perfect for your pattern.

I am trying it in handpainted silk, next.

I am posting pictures of the finished pair on my blog page if you care to look.

Thanks, again. Kathleen

To the designer of these gloves. Thank you so much for posting this pattern. I've made 4 pair as Christmas presents. I'm recently retired and have picked up crocheting again and am really enjoying it....Thanks again for helping me to transition from the working world of chos to the easy life of retirement!

Thanks so much for sharing this pattern Christie! I was looking for a pattern for my teenage nieces and these are perfect. I saw this pattern in the afternoon and just finished making the first pair (now it's 11pm!), the pattern is so easy to follow. Great job!

Thank you for sharing this great pattern, Christie! I just used part of a skein of worsted weight yarn (with less than a yard to spare!) to make a pair of these beautiful gloves. I used 29 sts and size K hook, and worked only 10 rows, and they fit perfectly. Also, they match the crocheted pineapple shawl I just finished beautifully. It made my day! :)

Hi ChristieP, I'm so sorry for messing this site with the very large picture I posted earlier. I wanted to re-do it by posting a smaller one but I couldn't edit or delete. I just wanted to show you a sample of what I made using your Lacy Fingerless Gloves pattern as my own way of thanking you. I have my own post about it in [View:]
