Free Crochet Pattern with video tutorial: Textured & Ribbed Fingerless Gloves

(Shown in Red Heart With Love Cameo, I've only been able to find the particular color available at Walmart)

Hello & thanks so much for stopping by! 
These last couple of weeks I've been re-writing a past scarf pattern and I've worked up these fingerless gloves to match it. I will add links at the end of this pattern for said scarf and the new matching ear warmer too! Please be sure to read through all the important notes listed below before starting.

 

Above are a couple extra photos showing the backside of the glove and then the seam, clicking the image will enlarge it. 

This pattern now has a video tutorial, you can watch below or here on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBxNNEahPS0



Skill Level: Intermediate

Size: Teen/Women's
As a guide my wrists measure 6" (left) & 6.25" (right) and the measurement taken at the top of my hand and around the knuckles is 7.5" (left) 7.75" (right). These gloves have some stretch and will definitely fit a hand/wrist a little larger. I suggest wrapping the foundation chain around your wrist to help determine if these will work for you.

Supplies:
Size I (5.50 mm) Crochet Hook
Red Heart With Love Yarn, approx. 200 yards
Tapestry Needle
Scissors
Stitch Marker

Abbreviations (US Terms):
BLO – Back Loop Only
Bpdc - Back Post Double Crochet
Ch – Chain
Dc – Double Crochet
Dc2tog - Double Crochet 2 Together
3LO - 3rd Loop Only
Fpdc – Front Post Double Crochet
Sl st – Slip Stitch
Sp - Space

Stitch Explanation:
3rd Loop Only - The third loop is located on the back of the dc, just under the back loop. Please see the photo below:


Important Notes:
-Ch 1's & 2's DO NOT count as a dc & you should join to the 1st dc of each row, not the chain.
-All joins are made with a sl st.
-Stitches placed between these brackets: [ ] indicate a group of stitches to all be worked into the same space.

Gauge: 7 dc & 4 rows = 2"


Gloves:
(make 2)

Row 1: Ch 27, join to the first ch making sure not to twist the foundation chain. Ch 2, dc in same and in each sp around. Join. (27 dc)

Free Crochet Pattern: Textured & Ribbed Infinity Scarf

(Shown in Red Heart With Love Cameo, I've only been able to find this particular color at Walmart stores)




Hello all! 
I am pretty excited to share this pattern, it may look familiar as it's a re-make of my Textured Infinity Scarf. I noticed the old pattern tends to curl a little because of how the ribbing is worked and I've found a way to fix that issue! I also changed up the texture a little & I hope this new pattern is as well liked as the previous pattern. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
