Ripple Lace Fingerless Gloves

Ripple Lace Fingerless Gloves

This is one of my favorite patterns and one of my first ever. I don’t know why I spaced till now on posting it. The finished product is available for sale in my store. I can take custom orders for other colors.

They make a great Christmas present to keep hands warm when you need your fingers free… like when at the computer, crocheting, knitting, etc.

Ripple Lace Fingerless Gloves

I used a G hook and 2 ply sport alpaca wool blend yarn. Gauge is not too important nor is yarn or hook as you will make these gloves to fit. You do want to use a rather large hook for the yarn you are using so the end product will be stretchy.

blo= back loop only

Chain a multiple of 6. My chain was 30 (5×6.) Your chain should stretch comfortably around the widest part of your hand but not be too loose around your wrist. If you’re having a hard time getting a good fit, keep in mind you can switch to a larger hook around row 15 or 16 to make the top of the glove looser.

Right Glove
Row 1: Join to 1st ch with sl st, ch 1, sc blo around, sl st blo of 1st sc
Row 2: Ch 3, 2dc in same back loop as sl st, sk 2, dc blo, sk 2, *5dc blo (shell), sk 2, dc blo, sk 2*, repeat around, end with 2dc in the same back loop as the “ch 3, 2dc” at the beginning of this row, sl st in the top chain of the ch 3, (5 shells and 5 dc total)
Row 3: Ch 1, sc blo around, join with sl st blo (30 sc total)
Row 4-17: Repeat rows 2 and 3
(You may do more or less sets of rows depending on how long you want the gloves to be. The next row, that I have numbered as row 18 is the thumb hole row. You might want to switch to the next size larger crochet hook for a couple rows before the thumb hole row.)
Row 18/Thumb hole row: Ch 3, 2dc in same back loop as sl st, sk 2, dc blo, sk 2, 2dc blo, ch 5, skip 5, 2dc blo, sk 2, *shell, sk 2, dc blo, sk 2* repeat around, end with 2dc same back loop as ch 3 and 2dc at the beginning of this row, sl st in the top of the ch 3
Row 19/Row after thumb hole: Repeat row 3
Row 20: Ch 3, 2dc in same back loop as sl st, sk 2, dc blo, sk 2, 5dc blo (shell), sk 1, dc blo, sk 1, *5dc blo (shell), sk 2, dc blo, sk 2*, repeat around, end with 2dc in the same back loop as the “ch 3, 2dc” at the beginning of this row, sl st in the top chain of the ch 3, (5 shells and 5 dc total)
Row 21-25: Repeat rows 3 and 2, alternating.
(Again you can do more or less sets of rows depending on how long you want the gloves to be.)
Finish off

Left Glove-You can follow the same pattern as the right glove. But, if you want to shift the location of the thumb hole so that the “seam” (where you’ve been joining at the end of each row) will be on the palm side of the glove, change row 18 and row 20.
Row 18: do shells and dcs as before until 2 shells before the end of the row. Then do 2 dc blo, ch 5, sk 5, 2 dc blo, sk 2, dc blo, sk 2, 2dc in same loop as beginning ch 3 and 2dc at the beginning of this row, sl st in top of ch 3.
Row 20: do shells and dcs as before until just above the thumb hole. There, only skip 1 stitch before and after the dc blo.
