Textured Crochet Fingerless Gloves Stitch

As I mentioned above, I have used the crochet rice stitch. This is a beautiful crochet stitch full of texture.

Texture that is striking yet so easy to make. The stitch is created with alternating front and back post double crochet stitches.

On the next row you work the opposite stitch to the one that is in front of you. Which means you work front post dc around each back post dc and vic versa.

It really is that simple! However, I know you can use thousand words and it still might not make complete sense. That is why I have also filmed a quick video tutorial.

I have used this stitch previously for my Quick and Easy Crochet Mountain Leg Warmers- free pattern. Please follow the link to the pattern where you can also find the video tutorial.

  1. Thank you for this lovely pattern! I love to hear about the stories behind the designers who I follow, so thank you for that as well. I am curious if you named your Cotswolds fingerless gloves after the beautiful Costswolds area in England? The reason I ask is because my husband and I visited there in 2019 (pre-pandemic), specifically in the village of Castle Combe. We live in California, on a street named Castle Combe Court, and we had always wanted to visit the actual village in England which is the namesake for our street. Just curious, and mainly thank you so much for this lovely pattern. Now I must make these gloves!

    1. I did indeed, I live in Cotswolds and Castle Combe is such a beautiful village. This just proves how small the world really is! I hope you can visit Cotswolds again ?
