These gloves will keep you cozy & warm while leaving you free to use your hands. Plus, they’re quick & easy to make, and great for gift giving! The stitch used for this pattern gives the gloves a soft, beautiful texture.

Want to make a coffee cozy to match your gloves? I also have a pattern for a reusable coffee cup cozy that’s created using the same technique and materials. My Coffee Cup Cozy Crochet Pattern can be found here.

This pattern is made using Vanna’s Choice yarn by Lion Brand. I also love creating these gloves with Landscapes yarn by Lion Brand. Any worsted (weight 4) yarn will work perfectly fine, just be sure to check your gauge!

Notes:

  • This is an easy/beginner level crochet pattern
  • Pattern written in US crochet terms
  • The stitch count at the end of each row is shown in parenthesis ( )
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
  • The main pattern will create a shorter pair of gloves. Scroll to the end for instructions on adjusting the length.

Pattern:

Make 2 gloves

Ch 21

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 3 sts. For the next 10 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (20)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 6 sts. For the next 10 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (20)

Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 4 sts. For the next 10 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (20)

Rows 4 – 18: Repeat rows 2 & 3

Row 19: [This is the row where you’ll be making a thumb hole] Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 4 sts. Ch 5, skip 5. Sc in the next st. For the next 4 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (20)

Rows 20 – 22: Repeat rows 2 & 3 again.

At the end of row 22 cut the yarn (leaving a long tail that will be used to sew the edges together), fasten off.  

*Note: you might want to check your gauge or make sure the glove fits all the way around your wrists with your thumb through the thumb hole.

  • If the gloves are too small, continue to repeat rows 2 & 3 until they are wide enough.
  • If the gloves are too large, make the thumb hole on a lower, odd numbered row and only repeat rows 2 & 3 until they are wide enough.

Finishing Instructions:

[Finish both gloves before assembly] Fold gloves in half vertically before you stitch them up. Lay them side by side and make sure the thumbholes are both facing inward. Sew the long edges of each glove together with a tapestry needle. Fasten off securely and weave in loose ends. Turn your gloves right side out and you’re all done!

Adjusting the Length:

If you want to make your gloves longer, simply increase the foundation chain by multiples of 2, and increase the alternating dc/sc stitches by the same amount.

For example, if you add 4 stitches to your gloves the pattern will look like this:

Ch 25

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 3 sts. For the next 14 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (24)

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 6 sts. For the next 14 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (24)

Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 4 sts. For the next 14 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (24)

Rows 4 – 18: Repeat rows 2 & 3

Row 19: [This is the row where you’ll be making a thumb hole] Ch 1, turn. Sc in the first 4 sts. Ch 5, skip 5. Sc in the next st. For the next 8 sts, alternate between dc & sc starting with a dc. Sc in the remaining sts. (24)

Rows 20 – 22: Repeat rows 2 & 3 again.

Follow the same steps from the original pattern to finish your gloves!
