Chunky Ribbed *Reversible* Fingerless Gloves


 


Crocheted in a ribbed stitch, this results in a thick, padded texture, which is entirely reversible.

The pattern is worked in the round, so there are no seams.

The thumb section is slightly widened for a good snug fit, then the glove is narrowed again at the palm to avoid bagginess.  We want them warm and cosy, right?  :)



 


Reversible Fingerless Gloves      

A fun project which results in gloves which have a front post vertical rib on the outside, and a resulting horizontal rib on the inside.  These gloves, worked in the round, are seamless and can be turned inside out to give them an entirely different look.

Work both Women’s and Men’s the same – except work the numbers in brackets for a larger man’s size if you need to.

If working in the round, with no seam you only need to work 2 of the “Right Glove” as they will end up the same, you will need to work Right and Left if you are joining with a seam.


Materials:  1 skein Chunky (Bulky/6) yarn; 5mm hook, yarn needle

Abbreviations:  sc = single crochet; dc = double crochet; fpdc = front post double crochet; fpsc m= front post single crochet; sl st = slip stitch; sk = skip; rep = repeat.

Gauge:  11 sts and 12 rows with 5mm hook on fpdc = 4”

Pattern is written in US terms, a conversion chart to UK terms is included at the end.

Right Glove:

Row 2: Fpdc in each stitch to end. Do not join, place a marker to keep track of the beginning of each row and keep working in the round. (If beginning the next round leaves you with a small “hole” don’t worry, that is easily brought together with a stitch with your yarn needle at the end.)
