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 lovely make some. However, I’ve never done anything like this. I can’t wait to try it. I’ve only ever made blankets. If I want more of a thumb on it, how would I go about it? Thank you for sharing this amazing pattern.

    I love the Amour hooks. Perfect for arthritic hands. Love the fox pattern. Can you turn the gloves in to mittens?

    Thanks for the opportunity. I have a few of these Clover hooks and like them…would love to have more!
    It bugs me just a little that so many blogs depend on Instagram and Twitter – because many of US don’t want to join those sites…I barely have time to visit Facebook, let alone my own email – and don’t want any more “social” internet connections.
    I have filled out all the possible entries above – without Twitter and Instagram – and will just hope for the best.

    Hi, thanks for the lovely pattern!
    I was just trying to make it and i dont think i am getting the bigninng right. It looks too big like a lacy collar for a dog. could you explain a little more about the foundation single crochets and th first two rows?
    Thanks so much!

      I’m not the creator of this pattern, but thought I’d let you know that I didn’t know how to do fsc either and looked it up on YouTube. There is a tutorial on how to do it and it’s pretty simple. I also came out with big collar like but I made the stitches just a tad tighter…enough to fit the hook through w/o struggling. Hope this helps!

      Update on original answer..since I’m not making the fox, I just took 2 foundation single crochets off so it’s 33 and not 35, then on the thumb hole took 2 stitches of from number of crochets, so instead of 12, I did 10. Fits better, not so loose.

        Thanks Amanda for your helpful hints! I’m going to attempt the Fox pattern for me daughter (last name Fox) so this will be perfect … if I can manage it. I’m not sure I understand how to work this “upside down” but I’m going to give it a try … suck a cute pattern. ????

    My daughter and I love your patterns (thank you for sharing!!) but they are really difficult to print out. If I just press print, its 31 pages long. I was wondering if you might think about providing downloadable PDF documents in the future?? Thank you, Charlene 🙂

    Hi! Would it be possible to crochet this as a flat panel and then just sew up the side to create the mitt?

      That’s what I’m doing now. I just figured I would follow the stitches minus the fox?

    Help! I’m having SUCH A HARD TIME with this pattern. I’ve googled, youtube, and researched and I can’t seem to get it. I’ve re-done it like 10 times now and still I just don’t understand the ribbing and rounds. I’m going to keep trying until I get it, but any way of getting some pictures to explain it? I’m confused in Round 1-10. I am doing the pattern upside down like you said, but then I get to the round 1-10 and it says to follow the chart. What chart? The fox graph? And am I doing the stitches around or vertical or horizontal?

    I just need a little perspective because I’m just so frustrated to the point of angry tears at myself for not getting it. Any advice would help!

    I’m having some trouble with these fox gloves. I have redone the first couple rows a few times with making tighter stitches & using a smaller hook, but they’re still too big for my hands. Any suggestions?

    I love Susan BAtes. They hook the yarn better. I think the rounded ones get caught easier on other pieces for me than the susan bates. Also, they do have crochet hook grips. They are just like pencil grips. They slide on the susan bates or any really that don’t have built in handles and work miracles. They are soft and spongy. Just an idea for the susan bate hooks you have, or the ladies who love the head of those better. Thanks for that pattern. Cant wait to give it a try!!
