Fingerless Gloves For Kids {Free Crochet Pattern}

Last week, I shared a pattern for Kid's Fingerless Gloves. They are cute, comfy, warm, and allow the finger freedom that mittens and traditional gloves do not. I mentioned a little something about increasing the rounds to make the fingerless gloves a little longer on the wrists. Today's pattern sports a longer wrist that allow these fingerless gloves to easily be tucked up under jacket sleeves, for added warmth, while still keeping little fingers free to make play easier.

Kid's fingerless gloves are super stylish, and can be customized by using whatever color you like. You can embellish them to suit your kid's desires by adding flowers or appliques.

The fingerless gloves are not too difficult to work up. Each glove is made all in one piece. You will start with the cuff, then move on to the wrist, form the hand and thumb, then finish just before the fingers.

  1. What age group do these gloves fit? I don't know the measurements that I would need. I need to make gloves for girls ages 8- 11 and boys 8-10 years old. Thank you

    1. When I made these, two of my girls were 5 and 7. They fit both, with a bit of room to stretch. I don't want to say for sure that they would fit 8-10 year olds. It is hard to tell with the varying sizes of kids' hands. lol If their hands are smallish or thin, I would think these would fit. If they are larger, I would probably go up a hook size when making them.
      Sorry I am not more help!

  2. Could these be crochet with chunky yarn?

    1. A chunky yarn will likely change the size of the finished product. It would require a larger hook and a change in stitch count to get the right fit. Depending on your crochet level, you may be able to play around with the pattern and the yarn to see if you can get the correct fit. Just be sure to make notes. It will make it MUCH easier when you go to make the second one.

  3. Thank you so much. Made the for my Grandson and he thinks their cool!
