Celtic Weave Fingerless Gloves- Free Pattern

I was inspired by the Outlander TV series to create some more textured crochet items for my store. After making a few fingerless gloves, I took a stab at creating my own design. I came up with this pattern almost a year ago and finally decided to type it up and offer it for free. Happy Holidays!

Celtic Weave Fingerless Gloves, Pattern by Over The Apple Tree

These woman's gloves fit small-medium depending on your tension. For a larger size, you can go up in hook size or add stitches to the side hdc section. The top of the glove is worked in turning rows and then stitched together up the back. I like working these flat, but of course you could join and turn as you work. As a matter of fact people have had really strong feelings about not stitching up the back. Do whatever you feel comfortable with!

I tried to make this pattern as easy to follow as possible with the color coded sections, but I would not recommend this project for beginners.

Here is a helpful Celtic weave video tutorial from Pattern Paradise.

US crochet terms
Worsted weight yarn
Hook size G(4.25)
BPTC= Back Post Treble Crochet
FPTC= Front Post Treble Crochet

Wristband
Ch 16 (Feel free to adjust length to make longer or shorter cuffs)
1. Sc in second from hook and in each chain to the end. Ch 1, turn(15)
2.-28. 15 sc in BLO. ch 1, turn (15)
Join last row to beginning chain with sl st to form the cuff. Turn inside out so that the sl st seam is on the inside. Rotate to work top of glove along the sides of the rows.

 *Note: I have 28 rows for the cuff and then I say to work 30 hdc in row 1 top of glove. I did this because I have skinny wrists and preferred my cuff to be tighter. It means you will have to work 2 hdc in a couple of the stitches for row 1 top of glove. If it makes you more comfortable, you can increase the cuff to 30 rows for it to come out even.

LEFT GLOVE
Top of glove
1. Ch 2, work 30 hdc into ends of sc rows on cuff. Join with sl st to first hdc. Do not turn yet.

2. Ch2, 1 hdc in same as join, 8 hdc *(sk 2, FPTC around next 2, FPTC around 2 skipped) Repeat from* 2 more times. 9 hdc. Ch 2, turn

3. 9 hdc, BPTC around first 2, *(sk 2, BPTC around next 2, BPTC around 2 skipped posts). Repeat from*, BPTC around last two, 3hdc, 2 hdc in each of the next two stitches, 4 hdc. Ch 2, turn

4. 4 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 2 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 3 hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 9 hdc, ch 2, turn

5. 9 hdc, (repeat cables row 3), 3 hdc, 2hdc in same, 4hdc, 2 hdc in same, 4 hdc. Ch 2, turn 

6. 4 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 6 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 3 hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 9hdc. Ch 2, turn

7. 9 hdc (repeat cables row 3), 3 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 8 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 4 hdc. Ch 2, turn

8. 5 hdc, skip 10, 4hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 9 hdc. Ch 2, turn

9. 9 hdc, (repeat cables row 3), 9hdc. Ch2 turn

10. 9 hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 9hdc. Ch2, turn

11. 9 hdc, (repeat cables row 3), 9hdc. Ch 2, turn

12. 9hdc, 12 sc, 9hdc. Ch1, turn

13. sl st across. Leave long tail to sew together

For RIGHT GLOVE start the same as for left glove but for rows 3-8 top of glove,  flip the side with the increases for the thumb hole but still work the cables the same. So row three, right hand would be... 4hdc, 2 hdc in each of the next two stitches, 3 hdc, BPTC around first 2, *(sk 2, BPTC around next 2, BPTC around 2 skipped posts). Repeat from*, BPTC around last two, 9hdc. Ch 2, turn

  15. Instead of stitching at the end, why don't you slip stitch at the end of each row?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I look forward to making these.

  17. I have tiny wrists as well as small hands. I'm concerned that the glove will be too loose. Will the pattern work out correctly if I continue with 28 stitches instead of 30 by eliminating 1 stitch at the beginning and end of the row?

  18. These Celtic fingerless gloves are super cute! I am so ecstatic that you shared the pattern with us.TY :)

  19. Question - about how much yarn did you use? The whole skein? More than one? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hey these are lovely thank you! I find that doing the slip stitch at the top makes them really tight at the top, I know it's likely my tension but it feels nicer skipping that last row and having them stretchy at the top. Anyway, they're gorgeous so thank you!

  23. Hi Laura!

    Found your fingerless gloves while doing a Google search; wanted something lovely for my sister-in-law's birthday. Absolutely love them!

    But I am curious... Why can't these be made in the round, still turning at each round, so that they don't need to be sewn up at the end?

    1. You can do that if you want, just be sure to keep track where your first stitch goes. I prefer not to, I think it's easier to work with.

    2. Thank you, Laura! I'll give it a try and let you know how I make out. I'm having a hard time sewing up the left glove - it looks butchered, LOL! I'll keep trying. Thanks again!

  24. I love this pattern!...but I cannot the weave to work...I’ve watched numerous videos and they always come out twisted. I’m so frustrated as I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong! HELP!

    1. Oh, I'm sorry to hear that! I don't know how to help without know what you're doing wrong. The only thing I can tell you is to watch the video tutorial link I included. Maybe take a break and go back and try again.

  25. I am having a problem with the hdc instruction between row 3 and 4. I keep coming up with an extra stitch. I'm not sure what the 2hdc in italics means. Please help.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Row 3 starts the increase for the thumb. Rows 3-7 you'll be doing 2hdc in the same stitch twice with an increasing number of stitches between the increases. If you look ahead a little you'll see the pattern...row 4 has two stitches between the increases, row 5 has four stitches, row 6 has six stitches, row 7 has eight stitches between the increases. The italics are to help point out the difference in the pattern for each row.

  26. I like your pattern. I did write out the instructions for rows 3 - 8 for the right glove: __ 3: WS-4 hdc, 2 hdc in each of the next two stitches, 3hdc, BPTC around first 2, *(sk 2, BPTC around next 2, BPTC around 2 skipped posts). Repeat from*, BPTC around last two, 9 hdc. Ch 2, turn
    __ 4: FS-9 hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 3 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 2 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 4 hdc, ch 2, turn
    __ 5: WS-4 hdc, 2hdc in same, 4hdc, 2 hdc in same, 3 hdc, (repeat cables row 3), 9 hdc, Ch 2, turn
    __ 6: FS-9 hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 3 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 6 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 4 hdc. Ch 2, turn
    __ 7: WS-4 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 8 hdc, 2 hdc in same, 3 hdc (repeat cables row 3), 9 hdc. Ch 2, turn
    __ 8: FS-9 hdc, (repeat cables row 2), 5 hdc, skip 10, 4hdc. Ch 2, turn
    .
    How would you have done the pattern in the round?

  27. Hello, how many balls of wool are needed for this project?

  28. I love these!!! Working on my second pair right now in the same green color as yours as a christmas gift for my boyfriend. I made the first pair with thicker white wool yarn and crocheted tight + skipped the last row of cables. I also chose to make the ribbing shorter. Thanks for this beautiful easy to follow pattern! <3 <3 <3

  29. Is there a certain set of multiples to this pattern? I'm going to be using a thinner yarn and smaller hook, so I just wonder if it is in two's, there's, five's, etc. Thanks.

    1. You might have to add another set of cables and probably make the thumb hole bigger. I couldn't say without trying it.

  30. I just finished a pair using black yarn with a bit of sparkle to it. The yarn was horrible to work with on this pattern... But the pattern itself is fantastic! I made my ribbed bands shorter by half and also joined my rounds. Thank you so much for such a fun pattern... I thoroughly enjoy it!

  31. I love this pattern! My only thing is it was too small for me, seeing as I'm a big girl, but luckily it was easy to modify. Still working on it, so hopefully my modifications work or okay. I'm also working in the round, as opposed to stiching it. I prefer the rounds myself. If i wanted to post this for bigger ladies, would you be okay with that? As long as I link you? I'm contemplating starting a blog of modified patterns and patterns i come up with myself. I haven't yet, but i hope to. And i would love to add this into it.

    1. Hi Jess, Sorry I just saw your comment, it was in my spam folder. I'm glad you like my pattern. As far as publishing it on your own blog, I'd prefer if you didn't repost the whole pattern however if you said "I did this instead of that" or "I added stitches in row.." That would be cool.
