Crocheting is my crafty passion - passed on to me by my grandmother. :-)

My husband and I were blessed to be able to retire in January 2007. Since then we’ve been able to realize life-long dreams ...

Half-finger Hobo Gloves

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You need to know how to chain, single crochet and slip stitch.
  • Front- and back-post double crochet stitches are used for the cuff ribbing.
  • There is a modified half-double stitch used; directions are in the pattern.

Pattern Description:

I LOVE gloves - fingerless, half-finger, full-finger - doesn't matter. I know you can only wear one pair at a time, but I'm always looking for a new stitch design to turn into a new pair of gloves.

These gloves can be made with or without the separate half-fingers. Super easy if you leave the half-fingers off; not too terribly difficult if you make the fingers. The sample pair of these have quickly become my favorites - the half-fingers are just too fun!!

The body is made with a modified half-double crochet stitch - the resulting design reminds me a bit of the knit garter stitch. It's a firm, textured stitch but still has some stretch to it. It feels great on my hand!

Don't be afraid to try this pattern; recent feedback from a customer:

Awesome pattern, easy to follow. And that's saying a lot since I hardly know how to crochet! Very cute!
