The other day, I made this heart cup cozy using front post half double crochets. These crochet gloves use similar front post single crochet stitches to create the ribbing like look at the wrists and fingers.

Choosing the Right Yarn

For these fingerless gloves, you’ll want to choose yarn that is soft and comfortable against your hands. Especially in wintertime, many people have trouble with dry skin or eczema, and a scratchy wool can aggravate those conditions. If your hands sweat a bit, you may want to use a soft 100% merino wool that wicks away moisture while keeping your hands warm. Even a soft acrylic yarn will work beautifully!

Choose your favorite orange and cream yarn, and put it against a dark neutral background. I chose a grey so that both the cream and black accents stand out. You can also use a complementary color like blue or green that highlights the brightness of the fox itself.

You’ll want to use the same brand of yarn for all the colors so that all the yarn weight are exactly the same. This will help keep your stitches even, especially in the colorwork sections.

Constructing Your Fox Fingerless Gloves

These crochet fingerless gloves are worked in the round, and is actually worked from fingers to wrist, which means you’ll read the graph from top to bottom.

Be careful of you tension in this project. I tend to make ribbing loosely, so I used my main hook for the colorwork, and then a smaller hook for the ribbing so that my tension equalizes out. Using different hook sizes is a great way to make sure all your stitches come out evenly even when your tension varies. You’ll need to find what works best for you!

There’s also obviously a lot of colorwork in this fingerless gloves crochet pattern. You can choose to carry each color yarn all the way around, cut the yarn on each round, or carry the yarn back and forth on the back side of the project.

I chose the third option, where I carried the yarn across the main fox motif, and then brought the yarn back to my active stitch for each round. If you do this, make sure to leave enough slack for the gloves to stretch! I also worked my stitches over any carried yarn to hold them in place. Again, you’ll need to stop and check the stretch as you go, so you don’t end up with gloves that are too tight!

Fox Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern

Supplies:

(The hook size, yarn and your level of stress during construction will determine the size of your finished handwarmer. You can see the difference in this pictures – both was using the same size hook, but I was more relaxed when creating the right-hand glove. The left one had turned out a bit tight for my hand, so I was also consciously keeping my gauge a bit looser when I worked up the right hand one.

Abbreviations:

sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain stitch
st – stitch
dc – double crochet
fsc – foundation single crochet
fpsc – front post single crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet

    These are absolutely adorable. My 3 year old granddaughter would love these. Any way to make them smaller? Would going down a hook size or 2 do the trick? Has anybody made them smaller for a child?

    omg, I’ve frogged this 4 times now. Just reread it AGAIN and realised I was doing the WHOLE chart and not stopping when I got to row 10! My thumb hole was so far down, but now I understand why. Ok, 5th attempt! I may even just do the chart in SC and only the cuffs in fpsc, works up much faster!

    Hello thank you for your patterns. I just finished the fox purse (with some of my own touches ????). Can’t wait to try the hand warmers.
