Crochet Fingerless Gloves

These are some fingerless mittens I worked up to go with the purple crocheted legwarmers.

Easy crocheted fingerless gloves. Free pattern below.

These are short little wristers.  You could make yours longer simply by making more chains.

They were easy as can be.  Here’s what I did.

  • Worsted weight yarn
  • J hook

Ch 16

Row 1) DC in 3rd chain from hook and across.  Turn

Rows 2- 10) ch2, DC in next stitch and across, turn (14 dc )

At row 10 mine measured almost 7″ which will stretch around my hand which is about 7.5″ at the widest part.

Slip stitch or sew the edges together until 2″ from end.  Leave 1 1/2″ open for thumb and sew/slip stitch remaining 1/2″ closed.

Dress Up that Boring Crochet Hat

Got a Boring Little Beanie?
~Give it some pizzazz and turn it into an adorable gift.

Recently I started pulling little crochet beanies from my WIP’s tote.  They were solid colors and some were hats that I planned on putting animal faces on for some cool critter hats.

At least when they were originally crocheted that was the plan but you’re a crafter–You know how when we get an idea from outta nowhere we tend to run with it.  I did just that.

Free pattern for knitted earflap hats

Free pattern for knitted earflap hats

Just found this pattern in the drafts from a few years ago so it has been posted here:

The pattern calls for size 8 knitting needles and worsted weight yarn.  It seems like these hats usually take me about 4 hours from start to finish.

This pattern and these hats will always hold a special place in my heart because they are the first and foremost reason I started learning everything I could about knitting and crochet.

The little boy in those pictures is my [now much older] son.  He was 10 and wanted a $30 earflap hat from Pacsun(?) –but the kid lost two winter coats that year. There was no way I was spending that much for hats that would be left on the bus or playground.  I went to walmart, bought yarn, figured out how to knit in the round, and ended up learning how to read patterns after I had figured out how to successfully make hats!

The first hat I knit made is around here someplace–I really should show a picture of it.  It was in Indianapolis Colts colors.  I was so proud of the work and it was just sooooo terrible–just full of holes from lost and twisted stitches that I hadn’t noticed til it was on his head and we were walking into the mall.  When we got home that day I started on the green, white and black one in the picture–that was the first ‘wearable’ hat that I knit LOL.  That was December and by February I was doing much better when I made the royal blue and black one for his friend.

Mushroom top Lighter Leash or Chapstick Holder- coozie pattern

Crochet pattern to make your own lighter or chapstick pouch.

My daughter Ally asked me to help her come up with a holder for a lighter with a sliding mushroom cap on a ‘necklace’ so it could be worn around the neck, wrapped thru a belt loop or purse handle or could hang from a rear view mirror.  She wanted it to be able to hold a lighter, cash, lipstick or chapstick.

It must, she insisted be quality–no chain tied to a coozie type pouch, no strings hanging out and no floppy looking holder. It need to look good even empty. It needed to look like something she would be willing to spend $10 for.

The pattern needed to be easy enough that she could understand what she was reading and show her friend how to read a pattern.

She hoped it would be easy enough that the two of them could make boxes full to take and sell at festivals next summer.

We spent the day together trying out different ideas and came up with this.  She’s thrilled with it and I bet you will be too.

  • Make it with or without the Mushroom top.
  • The mushroom top slides up to keep your contents inside where they belong.
  • These work great for keeping track of your lighter, chap stick or even money.
  • These sell well at festivals and they make great gifts.
  • You are free to make and sell your finished lighter leashes/chapstick holders made from this pattern.
  • This easy and quick pattern is a great way to use up scraps of worsted weight yarn.

This pattern uses a size H (5.5 mm) crochet hook and is written in US terminology.
