Crocheted Simple Fingerless Gloves S/M

I bought me some Fisherman's Wool. Yeah. And as I crochet with it I occasionally smell it, 'cause it smells like nature. It smells really nice. It is not the softest yarn I ever worked with, but if you wear something under it it doesn't matter if it is not soft like cashmere. I made some baby slippers/booties with it (stay tuned for these, if interested). And here you have semi-lacy crocheted fingerless gloves - or rather hand warmers with holes. Yeah, hand warmers with holes is the expression that describes it pretty well.

It is a very simple lacy design, and basically same repetition through out the entire work. Easy-peasy, as some would say.

So, if you would like to try, get yourself some medium size #4 yarn. If you do not like Fisherman's Wool you may rather buy something softer for yourself. You could also combine a #3 "DK yarn" (cream color) with #1 "Fingering yarn" (dark brown).

So, if you would like to crochet along my video - see two links below:

Step-by-Step:

Foundation: ch30, join with sl st

Rnd 1        ch1, 1 sc into each st (total 30 sts)
Rnd 2        ch3, then make 2 dc into same spot, *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]* - repeat 8 more times, sl                  st into ch3
Rnd 3-8    sl st into second dc; then ch3, then make 2 dc into same spot, *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]*                  - repeat 8 more times, sl st into ch3

In the following rows you will be increasing stitches for the thumb as such:

Rnd 9        ch3, 1 dc into same spot, 1 dc into next (2nd) st, 2 dc into next (3rd) st; skip 1 st, 3 dc into                   next st;  *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]* - repeat 7 more times, sl st into ch3

                  3 dc into next st;  *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]* - repeat 7 more times, sl st into ch3
Rnd 11      ch3, 1 dc into same spot, 1 dc into each of the next 5 st,s 2 dc into next (7th) st; skip 1 st,
                 3 dc into next st;  *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]* - repeat 7 more times, sl st into ch3

                 3 dc into next st;  *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]* - repeat 7 more times, sl st into ch3

In the following rows you will knit couple of rows for your hand/palm section as such:

Rnd 14          fold the crocheted "thumb part" in half and sl st  it to the last stitch of the "thumb part"                        to enclose  it; then start the hand/palm part - ch3, then make 2 dc into same spot, skip
                     1 st,  3 dc into next st; *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd st]* - repeat 8 more times, sl st into ch3
Rnd 15-16    sl st into second dc; then ch3 and make 2 dc into same spot, *[skip 2 sts, 3 dc into 3rd                          st]* - repeat 8 more times, sl st into ch3
