How To Crochet A Granny Square Fingerless Gloves

Hi Guys! In this post we will talk about my new YouTubeGranny Square Gloves. I have already uploaded the video, you can watch it there as well. I had a lot of scrap yarn, and probably have some still, I decided to put some of it to a good use! And this pattern came to my mind. I searched for some granny square patterned gloves on Pinterest but didn’t find much similar products.

I used cotton yarn and a size II aluminum hook. You can use your choice of yarn and hooks as well.
Let’s begin the pattern, if you are new to crocheting you can learn the basics to crocheting here.


Working the granny squares.

Round 1. (Any Color Yarn)

1.       Chain 4.
2.       Join to make a magic ring.
3.       Chain 3.
4.       Double crochet 2 times in this magic ring.
5.       You will have 3 stitches. The first chin 3 will be considered as one stitch.
6.       Chain 3.
7.       Make a set of 3 double crochet stitches in the magic ring the second time.
8.       You will have 1 set of double crochet stitches, followed by a hole and then the second set of double crochet stitches.
9.       Chain 3 once again.
10.   Make a 3rd set of double crochet stitches.
11.   Chain 3.
12.   Make the 4th set of Double crochet stitches.
13.   Chain 3 and join with the beginning of the round.
14.   The sets of double crochet stitches make the sides of the granny square where as the chains of threes makes the holes that represent the corners of the square.
15.   Trim the yarn and weave in the yarn tail.

Round 2: (Black Yarn)

1.       Join the black color yarn to one of the holes of the square. Chain 4. (call it A)
2.       Now work the double crochet stitches in the next hole. Make a set of 3 stitches. Followed by a chain of three and a 2nd set of double crochet stitches.
3.       Chain 1.
4.       That is the first corner worked out.
5.       Now work in the second corner/hole. Again make 3 double crochet stitches, chain 3, 3 double crochet stiches.
6.       Chain 1.
7.       The third hole is worked in the same manner.
8.       However, in the last hole, we make a set of 3 double crochet stitches, chain 3, next we make only 2 double crochet stitches, and the third one is the initial chain that we called A, Join it with this chain at the 3rd stitch.
9.       Trim the excess yarn and weave off the yarn tail.

Joining the granny squares.

1.       We will be using 24 granny squares for both the hands together, i.e. 12 for each hand.
2.       Join the granny squares using yarn and yarn needle and stitch them together.
3.       Make a matrix of 3x4 squares, i.e. 3 rows and 4 columns.
4.       Fold in half, stitch along but leave a gap for the thumb.
5.       Weave off the yarn tail.
6.       Decorate with pearl beads.

I love how this pattern worked out and how perfect the centers look like. I’m glad that all the scrap yarn was put to some use and the end result was cheery. The flowery look is giving me quite a positive vibe.
