Free Pattern: Light and Lacy Windowpane Gloves


  These fingerless gloves are the perfect compliment to the Windowpane Scarf and Hat. A light and lacy texture might not be ideal for playing in the snow, but it will beautifully accent any cool weather outfit while you warm up by the fire or snuggle up to a good book.
  One size fits most, but see the notes about how to adjust the pattern for your own needs. Finished size: 6 1/2" (16.5cm) long and 8" (20.3cm) circumference.

Skill Level:
Easy

Materials:
14 oz skein Red Heart Super Saver worsted weight acrylic yarn 
 *One 14oz skein will make the Windowpane Gloves, Scarf and Hat


Crochet hook size K/10 1/2 (6.5mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
Tapestry needle or smaller hook for weaving in ends

Gauge:
1 dc = 3/4" (2cm) high

Note:
  I prefer to start with foundation double crochet (fdc), but as usual, if you have not learned this method: Ch 26, 1 dc in 4th ch from hook and in remaining 21 sts.
  Fdc creates the foundation chain and first row of stitches at the same time. It also allows the piece to stretch to fit. If you do not begin with fdc, you may need to adjust your pattern.
  Instructions are given at the end of the pattern for how you can increase your pattern if needed. If you need to decrease the size, try a smaller hook.

Stitches:
Slip stitch (sl st)
Chain (ch)
Double crochet (dc)
Foundation double crochet (fdc)

Directions:
Round 1:
Fdc 22 (see note), join to beg ch-3 with a sl st.

Round 2:
Ch 4 (counts as 1 dc, ch-1), sk 1, {1 dc, ch 1, sk 1} 10 times. Join with a sl st to beg ch-3.

Round 3:
Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each of remaining 21 sts. Join with a sl st t o beg ch-3.

Round 4:
Repeat Round 2.

Round 5:*right hand*
Ch 6 (counts as 1 dc, ch-3), sk 3, 1 dc in remaining 18 sts. Join with a sl st to beg ch-3.

Round 5:*left hand*
Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each of next 17 sts. Ch 3, sk 3, 1 dc in last st. Join with a sl st t o beg ch-3.

Round 6:
Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), 1 dc in each of next 4 sts. {Ch 2, sk 2, 1 dc} twice. {1 dc, ch 2, sk 2} twice. 1 dc in each of remaining 5 sts. Join with a sl st to beg ch-3.

Round 7:
Repeat Round 6.

Round 8:
Repeat Round 3.

Round 9:
Repeat Round 2.

Round 10:
Repeat Round 3, bind off, weave in ends.

*Note*
To increase size, add two(2) sts to the foundation. For Round 2, repeat brackets{} one more time. Add one stitch to the beginning and one stitch to the end of each Round 3 repeat (2 sts). For Round 5, add 2 sts to the end for right hand. Add 2 sts to the beginning for left hand. For round 6, add 2 sts between bracket sets {} {}.
