Irissa Fingerless Gloves

I wanted to design a pair of stylish and easy to crochet fingerless mittens. This project is great for showcasing an extra special yarn or could be used as a stash buster project. Try different yarns and hook sizes to see what you can create. This is a free crochet pattern written using UK crochet terminology.

Below you will find a list of equipment you will need, the pattern and instructions for assembling your fingerless mittens.

Measurements: Before Stitching (this is a guide)

Length: 16 cm

Adjustments:

The fingerless mittens can be made in smaller or larger sizes by reducing or increasing the number of stitches in the foundation chain in multiples of 2.

Reduce Foundation Chain e.g. New FC 33

Row 13 adjustment: ch 1, dc in the next 13 stitches, ch 8 skip 6 dc, dc in the next 13 stitches, turn (34)

Increase Foundation Chain e.g. New FC 37

Row 13 adjustment: ch 1, dc in the next 15 stitches, ch 8 skip 6 dc, dc in the next 15 stitches, turn (34)

To Assemble

Fold in half with the right sides facing each other, using a tapestry needle and sew along the seam.
