Toddler Fingerless Gloves

free crochet pattern

OK, so this is my first ever pattern. Usually I just wing it and hope for the best but this time I actually wrote it down. I made these fingerless gloves for my daughter who is 20 months but they could fit a 2 year old. Please let me know if you find any errors. And PLEASE do not sell this design as your own.

    1. I know what you mean. That’s party the reason I could never sell any of my crochet. As soon as I’ve finished one thing I’m itching to do something new – there’s just so much out there. I admire people who can sit done and make the same thing over and over.

  1. Well, how about that. I just wrote a note to welcome you to Knitting Paradise and made a note to self to look you up on your link went on to finish reading KP and someone posted a link that lead me here. Some things are just meant to be! These toddler wrist warmers are awesome! I think I want to make my grown daughter a pair. 🙂 Thank you for so generously sharing your pattern.


  2. I started this pattern last night and I’m having a problem completing the front panel. It all goes well until I get to R5 & R6. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but it ends up extremely lumpy on the sides and not at all like a nice square in the picture 🙁 one attempt it looked like the shape of house hehe

    When I get to R6, I have way too many stitches to be able to fit just 6 SC up the side as the pattern says. I would have needed about 10 to make the distance. I checked and double checked that I did R5 properly, and the only thing I can think of is that I’m understanding the pattern incorrectly.

    Would you mind clarifying, on R5&6 of the front panel, when it’s asks to repeat, Do you mean the entire Row from the beginning or one of the asterisks, and which asterisk in particular (as there are more than one pair.)

    Sorry to be a pain but it is such a beautiful looking pattern I want to do it justice and would dearly love to give these as a gift to my niece.

    Thanking you 🙂

    1. Hi! Sorry you’re having trouble with this pattern. It’s been a while since I’ve done it so I will make the front piece again and I’ll see if I can help you.

        1. Oooops! I don’t know what went wrong there! All I can think is that maybe I accidentally copied the pattern from a previous draft. I have highlighted the corrections in orange. If you have any more troubles please let me know.

  3. These are beautiful! I wish they came in adult size, good thing I have some little people to make these for. Thank you for sharing

    1. I made some for my sister and I was going to write up the pattern but unfortunately I only completed one and got sidetracked (this happens to me a lot). From what I remember you do everything the same until you get to R6. In R6 you replace SC with DC then you add an extra row of DC in every stitch. You could keep going like that with subsequent rows (with DC in every stitch, a few more for the corners) until you get the size you want. Then it’s simply a matter of making the back the same size as the front – but don’t forget the thumb hole.

  4. These are beautiful. I made one tonight with your exact stitches, however I used a bigger hook – they fit me as an adult. Now I know exactly how I want them to look for my toddler granddaughter – thank you so much for this pattern.

  5. Love them!!! How do you suppose I would make some for my 4 month old. She always has her hands in her mouth and is sucking on her fingers. Do you think it’s possible to go that small? Thanks 🙂

    1. I’m sure it’s possible. Maybe if you use a smaller hook like a 2 and if they’re still to big you can omit R6 – just make sure the back is about the same size as the front.

  6. Hi. I am new to crochet and all these websites. Have 3 granddaughters. These fingerless gloves are just what I have been looking for. Beautiful design. June 8th post says you made the corrections in orange? Where or how do I find the corrected pattern? Thanks for your patience. Really want to try these.


  7. These are so pretty, I’ve made some in cream for my friends little girls birthday. Thanks for sharing your pattern. X

  8. I saw these cute little gloves and fell in love with them. On a whim, I decided to make a pair one weekend to enter into our state fair – and to my surprise, they won second place! Thanks for the lovely patterns and beautiful photography. Now I have a nice Christmas gift for a lucky little girl! 🙂 (You can see a picture of them on my Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/HomegrownInspirationHBaze).

  9. I love your work! I just started crocheting like a year ago and I’m trying my best to understand written patterns. But, I’m more of a visual type of person. Would you be willing to do a video tutorial on your work?

  10. I need to make these for a 5 year old. How would I go about making them larger?
    Thanks for the pattern. Love the gloves!!

  11. Thank you so much for the beautiful pattern! The ribbing portion took the longest, but so worth it!!

  12. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely pattern. I have just made a pair for my little lady and they look adorable (although she has never worn gloves before so it will take some convincing to get her to keep them on!!) Very easy to read and a gorgeous end result 🙂 Thanks again.

  13. Still having problems with row 5, I end up with 5 “clumps” rather than 4 to make a square, and too many stitches to sl st to next chain to end row. Are you sure this is the corrected pattern ?? I would have no idea how to begin row 6 ?? I’ve been crocheting for years, and this row has been ripped and redone 4 times according to you directions. Thanks so much !!

    1. Hi Nancy, I’m sorry you are having trouble with this. As far as I know the pattern is correct, others have made it successfully. I will double check it by making another one and I will get back to you. Thanks.

  14. Oh, my – so sorry for my comment. I hand wrote the directions out for the square, and left off part, eeeeek !! The pattern is perfect 🙂

  15. Quick question for you from a novice. Do yo somehow crocet the wrist bottom together and then sew to the glove or just hand stitch together and then hand stitch to the glove? I used a 2.75 hook for our 15month old granddaughter and they look so cute. Can’t wait to get them finished. Patty

  16. Just made these gorgeous mitts and am so pleased with them! Thank you so much for sharing your pattern. I was thinking about sizing them up for myself so your comments above are also helpful. Thanks again

  17. Hello – I’ve just made some little gloves using your pattern and I’m so proud of them! Gave them to my daughters friend for her birthday and she loved them. Thank you for sharing your pattern – it’s brilliant! I’ve posted a photo on facebook in the Creative Crochet Crew group 🙂
