Cosmic Convertible Crochet Fingerless Gloves

Get ready for the fall and winter chill with the Cosmic Convertible Crochet Fingerless Gloves. This free crochet pattern features a pair of long fingerless gloves that extend past your wrist for ultimate warmth and comfort. And, as a bonus feature, they feature a little flap that folds over and can cover your exposed fingers, making these both fingerless gloves and a pair of mittens. Use any single shade of worsted weight yarn to work these up - they're an intermediate pattern because of the shaping for the thumb holes, so just be sure to pay attention as you're following this pattern. You'll be able to work this up quickly and easily make a pair for anyone on your list!

NOTES:
•Gloves are worked from the fingers down; make the foundation chain loosely to allow for stretching
•Instructions are the same for the right and left hand; just mind where you place the mitten tops
•The body of the glove is worked in a spiral – use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds
•The mitten tops and thumbs are worked in joined rounds, the starting chain does not count as a stitch, make the first HBhdc in the same stitch as the starting chain, join in the first HBhdc of the round
•The instructions given are for medium-length gloves; however you can make them in any length you prefer.
•Height is measured from finger opening to arm cuff.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Wow. Only for the effort of painstakingly writing the pattern for different ages, I'm giving this pattern a five-star rating. I am thankful. It's an A for the effort. Well, this Cosmic Convertible Crochet Fingerless Gloves is unique in the sense that the design includes an attached flap to cover the fingers in case it gets too cold. However, that flap looks weird when not being used as it hangs loosely by the wrist area looking like a skin tag. Well, you have the option to include or not to include the flap in case you want to do this fingerless glove. Thanks for the free pattern.

Could you please explain what an HBhdc is? I assume it's some sort of half double crochet, but what does the HB stand for? Thank you.

HB stands for herringbone. Hope this helps

So, I've done the mitten and the flap. Very easy to follow and made the mitten and flap in about a day. I look forward to making more for Christmas gifts, except I don't know how to finish it! After you follow the directions for the flap, it tell you to get the instructions for attaching the flap and making the loop for the button with the pictures at the end of the file. I've looked everywhere and can't find anything! It's a little disappointing, especially since I really like this pattern. I'm not sure why the directions wouldn't just be put all in one place. If anyone has info on how to locate the rest of the directions, I'd be happy to hear for you. Until then, I guess I'm just going to try to finish it up without the directions and hope for the best.

you continue to scroll do all the way (beyond all the clickbait) the pics showing the finishing will be there. Kind of a pain but they ARE there.
