Free Crochet Pattern for Fingerless Gloves

Picot Crochet Fingerless Gloves
Picot Fingerless Gloves

Do a quick search on Ravelry, and you’ll find thousands of patterns for fingerless gloves. They’re quick, easy, and practical. They give your wrists and hands warmth, while leaving your fingers free to text (or crochet!).

I’m a sucker for texture, so I wanted to write a pattern for fingerless gloves that would be full of texture and class. I got the inspiration for the stitch pattern used from the book Crochet! By Marie-Anne Ballard, and added a picot at the top edge, to give them a polished finish.

In each row, I count the initial chain stitch as part of my stitch count.
FPTC: front post triple crochet
DC: double crochet
SC: single crochet
* marks repeated motifs within a row or round.

For this pattern, you’ll need:
- 100 grams of an Aran weight yarn (I used handspun, hand dyed three-ply yarn)
- 6.5 mm hook

We will begin by constructing the wrist section. It is made using single crochet stitches in back loops only to create ribbing.


Row 1: Chain 9, skip first chain from hook, SC 8 across.

Row 2: Chain 1, turn, SC back loops only across, so that there are 8 stitches, including the chain at the beginning of your row.

Rows 3-19: Repeat Row 2. (8 stitches each row)

Row 19: Bring the ends of your work together, so that the chain from row 1 lines up with the top of the stitches in row 18. Without chaining, turn and SC in the loops of the stitches that touch, securing the rows together to form the cuff. (8 stitches)

We will now switch to working in rounds, building the glove portion.


Round 1: Chain 1, SC in the stitch at the end of each row of ribbing in the wrist section. Join with a slip stitch. (20 stitches)

Round 2: Chain 2, DC 19, joining at the end with a slip stitch to the top of Ch2. (20 stitches)

Round 3: Chain 2, * FPTC1, DC1 * join with slip stitch to Ch2. (20 stitches)

Round 4: Chain 2, * DC1, FPTC1 * join with slip stitch to Ch2. (20 stitches)

Round 5: Chain 2, * FPTC1, DC1 * until three stitches remaining, chain 3, join with slip stitch. This forms the thumb hole.

Round 6: Chain 2, * DC1, FPTC1 * DC in each chain stitch in the previous row, join with slip stitch.

Round 7: Repeat round 3.

Round 8: Repeat round 4.

Picot Edging:

Round 9: Chain 1, * SC, chain 3, insert hook into third chain from hook, YO and pull through both loops. SC1. * until one stitch remaining. chain 3, insert hook into third chain from hook, YO and pull through both loops. Join with slip stitch to first , fasten off, and weave in end. (20 stitches, 10 picots)


We will create the thumb cuff by making single crochet stitches in each of the three stitches at the bottom, two in each side, and one in each of the three top stitches.

Round 1: Insert hook at any corner, chain 1, SC in next stitch, as indicated in instructions above, join with slip stitch to original chain 1. (10 stitches)

Round 2: Chain 1, * SC, chain 2, insert hook into second chain from hook, YO and pull through both loops. SC. * until one stitch remaining. SC, fasten off, and weave in end. (10 stitches, 4 picots)

Final notes:
Make two, exactly the same, and enjoy your new pair of fingerless gloves! To make these for smaller hands, decrease the cuff by two rows, which will decrease the glove section by 2 stitches per round.
