So, I’m always looking for something new and interesting to make with crochet. I also love accessories and other super girly things. These glovelets satisfy both those criteria.
I call these glovelets because they’re not quite wrist or arm warmers in that they don’t really provide enough coverage to actually keep you warm. I came up with them because I really, really love those dainty little lacy Victorian gloves that women used to wear.
- DK or Light Worsted Weight Yarn
- 2 Buttons (Fancy or Plain)
- Size (F) Hook for S/M; size (G) Hook for L/XL
*A note on the yarn: Don’t be afraid to use somewhat unconventional materials sometimes. For this project, I actually used some utility cotton twine that I found in the hardware section of my local dollar store. I use it for many different projects that I want to have a more natural cottony look and feel. It’s just a buck for 420 feet. That’s 140 yards for $1.
Picot: ch 3, sl st in 3rd ch from hook
Pattern (Make 2)
Ch 14 and sl st in first ch to form a ring
Rnd 1: ch 1, 18 sc in ring. Sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 2: ch 1, *sc in sc, ch 18, skip next 5 sc; rep from * around, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 3: Sl st in next ch-18 loop, ch 1, 18 sc in each ch-18 loop around, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 4: ch 1, *sc in sc, ch 3, skip next sc; rep from * around, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 5: Sl st to center of next ch-3 loop, ch 1, (sc, ch 4) in each ch-3 loop around, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 6: Sl st in next ch-4 loop, ch 1, 4 sc in each ch-4 loop around, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 7: Ch 1, *sc in each of next 4 sc, picot; rep from * around, sl st in first sc to join. Fasten off.
That’s the motif. Now it’s time to turn it into a glovelet.
You’ve basically made a triangle. There should be one picot at the top just about in the center of the triangle. You’ll use that as your starting point making sure that you’re working on the RS of the motif.
Repeat all of this for the second glovelet, and you’re done. It takes me about 30 minutes to do one complete glove. So in about an hour, you’ll have a stylish Victorian inspired accessory that you can wear with jeans and a blouse or to your next Renaissance fair.
