Brenna’s Fingerless Gloves

A cute friend of mine went on a trip to France last month and was so SWEET to think of me and bring me back a skein of beautiful pink Adriafil yarn.  She is just the best!!!

I wish I would have thought to take a lovely picture of the yarn before I started crocheting, but I was already started late at night and remembered to take the picture right where I was. The lighting isn’t perfect, but you get it, right?


When she gave me this yarn, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.  About a month or so ago, Brenna, from Crochet 539, posted that she had designed a pair of fingerless gloves that looked perfect for Arizona cool, but not too cold, mornings.

I got out my hook and crocheted away.  I only had one or two questions with the instructions, but I managed to crochet up a glove that looked pretty much like Brenna’s. I made a few errors but seemed to be able to fix them as I went.  The main problem was that the one small skein of yarn only made up one glove.  Oh no!

Well, I never let a hitch in the road stop me:). Since I couldn’t just run over to France and buy another skein of yarn, I looked through my stash and found a green that I think made the gloves even better than if they would have been if they were the same color.


Don’t they look great?!  I added a little ruffle stitch to the top that wasn’t in the pattern, but I think they look pretty much like Brenna’s:)

But pictures can be a bit deceiving.  Because I used two different yarns and the weight was different,  they are two different sizes! Lol :)!


I knew they were different weights when I started so I tried to adjust by decreasing the starting stitches which made the green glove skinnier.  I also decreased the number of rounds and tried to compare and measure as I went, but the green still ended up longer.  No one is perfect and especially not me!


But when I put them on, I really don’t think you can tell that they are two different sizes.  And I think that adding that pink stripe to the green glove really ties them both together.  All in all, they are a hit!  I really like them:)❤️❤️❤️

Thank you for a fun pattern Brenna!  It is a super SWEET day!

    1. Didn’t they turn out cute? I know I will get a lot of use out of them this winter. The two question spots were right after the cuff and right after the finger hole. Also I decreased the finger hole size fro 10ch to 6. I love the stitch though. I think they are so pretyy❤️❤️❤️

    1. Thank you Kate! I am not much of a “hey look at this mistake” type of person. So I will definitely not be pointing this out much beyond this post. I just thought it was funny and that it was an honest look at my crochet adventure for these past few nights❤️. :). I really do love them!
