Bobble Fingerless Gloves – Free Crochet Pattern

Ravelry // Etsy // All Free Crochet // Fave Crafts // Pinterest

Hey Friends and crochet lovers! I’m back with yet another bobble stitch pattern!

I had so much fun creating the Eira Beanie, that I decided that it needed a matching pair of fingerless gloves… because, why not?

These gloves work up so fast and are great for using the rest of your skeins that you may not know what to do with! After making an Eira Beanie with Red Heart Super Saver Ombre, I had enough yarn left over for 3 pairs of these!

The pattern I will provide you with below is adjustable to fit all hand sizes and all ages. I try my best to make all of my patterns beginner friendly and customizable so that they can be made for anyone, and with any size yarn or hook. If you have any questions about sizes, feel free to leave a comment below or email me at graceandfiber@gmail.com, especially if you purchase the PDF version of any of my patterns – my goal is to help you as much as I can, as best as I can!

If you have already made an Eira Beanie, you will find this pattern very very easy. It’s like a quicker version!

Are you ready to try it out? I’ll share the free pattern with you here below, but you can also find it on Ravelry and Etsy if you want the ad-free, downloadable and printable version, for a small fee of $3 USD!

About the Pattern

  • Pattern can be adjusted to fit several sizes.
  • Measure around the wrist. Chain in a multiple of 3 that will measure as close as you can get it to that measurement. The stitch used for the wrist cuff portion is very stretchy (kind of like the brim in the beanie version), so if it’s just slightly smaller, that’s okay! It’s made to be stretchy. For this pattern, in my size [ I have very skinny wrists/hands and long fingers], I worked with 21 stitches. It fits me nice and snug with a bit of stretch!
  • A smaller hook is used for the wrist cuff than the rest of the glove. this is because your hand is usually wider than the wrist. You will want to use a hook that is half a size smaller, so for example – I used a 6.5 MM hook for the glove portion, so the wrist cuff portion I used a 6 MM hook.
  • Chains at the beginning of each row do NOT count as a stitch.

Camel Stitch – yarn over and insert hook into the 3rd loop (in the back of the stitch!) of the hdc from previous row. yarn over and pull up a loop. yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook. [essentially a half-double crochet, just worked into the back loop!]
