These textured crochet fingerless gloves are such a quick and easy make. The pattern uses crochet rice stitch that gives a beautiful texture while being easy to make. Great quick one skein gift for loved ones.
Quick crochet project that literally works up in a couple of hours. Easy construction and pattern to follow. Beautiful make full of texture.
That is my textured crochet fingerless gloves pattern. It is a pattern I reach for when I need a quick make for a last minute gift.
It is also a great stash buster pattern. I used worsted weight yarn which is a very popular weight. I am sure that 99% of crocheters have a ball in their stash.
The texture is what makes these crochet fingerless gloves stand out. The pattern uses crochet rice stitch which is super easy to make.
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.

- if you wanted to make the gloves smaller, take away a few rows from the cuff
- if you would like them wider/bigger, add extra rows to the cuff
