Patons Classic Wool – natural mix color. 210 yards or 192 m

F (3.75 mm) size crochet hook
G (4.25 mm) size crochet hook

Men’s Large/XL sized fingerless gloves
Measurements: 9-1/2 inches long, 3-3/4 inches wide at cuff & 4-1/4 inches across at palm.

Make 2 gloves as follows:
Using F hook for ribbing, leave a long tail and ch 15.

Row 1 (Cuff Ribbing)
Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in ea st down to the end. (14 Sc)

Row 2-34
Ch 1, turn. Working in BLO, Sc in ea st across.

The length of the ribbing cuff is nearly 4″. Adjust this should you need a smaller cuff by working a few less rows for a tighter cuff.

Leave yarn attached and just slip hook out of last st so you can weave closed the cuff.
Using the long tail from the beginning row, weave closed the cuff by joining row 1 to row 34.

Tip: I found it looks best if I work in the BLO of row 34 and both loops of the row 1 when I stitch the cuff closed. This keeps the appearance of the back loop raised stitching look for the cuff.

Rnd 1
Slip the F hook back into last st of row 34. Now working into both loops, Sc evenly along end sts of cuff. (Approx. 35 Sc) Don’t join at end of round but just continue working in the round without joining or turning as you work the body of the glove.

Rnd 2-16
Using G hook now, Sc in ea st of rnd.

Rnd 17 ( Thumb opening)
Ch 10, sk 6 sts, and Sc in ea st around back to the chain for the thumb.

Rnd 18-33
Sc around the chain for the thumb evenly (approx 10 sts) and Sc in ea remaining st of rnd.

Sc in ea st. On final rnd, end with Sc in ea st until the last 3 sts. Work Sl St in the last 3 sts and use tail to weave under to end with a smooth edge.

Tip: I worked the last several rounds very tightly so the finger opening was snugger on the gloves. Another suggestion would be to work a dec or two on the last few rounds if you desire a tightly finger opening.


Rnd 1
Attach yarn at right hand side of V corner of the thumb opening. Using the G hook, Sc evenly around the thumb opening. Don’t join or turn. (approx 19 sts)

Rnd 2-4
Sc in ea st evenly around thumb.

Check the fit of thumb to make sure it fits and adjust by working decreases on thumb if needed. If you need to make decrease – Work 1 Sc dec over the 2 sts at the V corner of the thumb opening on both sides. (2 dec’s on rnd)

Rnd 5-7
Sc in ea st tightly and end final rnd with a Sl St.
I did not need to work any decreases on the thumb I crocheted for this pair of gloves but I did crochet the last two rounds very tightly so my thumb fit was snug. The thumb fit was perfect for my husband who wears large to extra large gloves.

The thumb length for the gloves in this pattern was 1-1/2 inches long.
