As I don’t have any patterns for amigurumi ready yet I thought I’d share this very simple pattern for these fingerless gloves I made last winter. Theses make a great stocking filler or last minute gift as they only take about an hour to make and use less than 50g of DK wool.
You will need
5mm crochet hook
40g Dk wool
CH – chain
SC- single crochet
HDC - half double crochet
BPHDC – back post half double crochet (half double crochet in back of loop only)
SS- slip stitch
HDC in second loop from hook, HDC to end
CH2 turn BPHDC to end
Repeat the last row 18 more times this will form a nice ribbed pattern.
Now fold in half and join the 2 ends together , SC through the stitches on both sides 10 times, SS on one side only 6 times (this makes the whole for the thumb), SC through the stitches on both sides to the end of the row.
Finish off and cut thread leaving a long tail.
Use the loose thread to sew on 3 buttons on the thumb edge
make another so you have a pair
My little bengal kitty Calypso helping me model the pair I made this afternoon.
Happy crocheting x
