If you have ever tried to find a pattern for full-fingered gloves, you know exactly the pains I went through when I first started to try to make these. There are approximately 1,345,653,890,123,324 free crochet patterns for “gloves” out there…and I found about 10 for full fingered gloves. Everything else was fingerless. Now, I don’t know about you, but when I wear gloves, I am wearing them to keep my hands and my fingers warm. I hate to be cold. I hate it more than anything. That is a large part of why I live in Southern California (where it is presently 70F) instead of Connecticut (where it is presently 25F). So why, in the love of all things warm, is it so hard to find crochet patterns for full fingered gloves? Knit patterns, sure! Sewing patterns, sure! Crochet patterns? Ugh!
After a thorough search of Pinterest, I had narrowed it down to 3 patterns…I took my I Love This Yarn in the most obnoxious color I could find, and I started with the first pattern…it took about 10 rounds to realize that it was not even kind of going to work…I frogged it…looked at the next pattern…It stopped halfway through the pattern.
My hopes were not high by the time I got to this final pattern. But, the gloves looked cute, and it was worth the 30 minutes I had given the other two patterns.
This one worked. It not only worked, it was simply and easy to understand. The gloves turned out to be super, super stretchy, very warm, and very easy to put together. It is an absolute must have in your winter wardrobe. I did not have to make any changes to it, aside from resizing for larger sizes. Now, these gloves are definitely a woman’s small, or a teen size. They will not fit giant man-hands. But, they were fairly easy to resize and make a larger size glove.
Sorry for the immaculately short post, but life is crazy right now. I will try to post some resizing guidelines when I have time to sit down and remake a pair of these gloves. But for now, good luck! Try to complete the pattern in its originality, and try to resize it! It is easier than you think, and I believe in you!
