Gwendolyn Glovelets Pattern

gwengloveletHere’s another vintage-y sweet glovelet pattern for ya. I’ve made this one out of Caron’s Simply Soft which makes it perfect for fall and winter, but you could easily use a lighter cotton yarn for spring and summer.

Materials

  • Worsted weight yarn—50 yards or so should be enough to make two glovelets
  • Size (F) Hook for S/M; (G) for L/XL
  • Two buttons
  • Coordinating Thread

Special Stitches

  • 3-tr puff st: (Yo [twice], insert hook in next space, yo, draw yarn through space, [yo, draw yarn through two loops on hook] twice) 3 times in same space, yo, draw yarn through 4 loops on hook.
  • 2-dc puff st: (Yo, insert hook in next space, yo, draw yarn through space, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook) twice in same space, yo, draw yarn through 3 loops on hook.
  • 3-dc puff st: (Yo, insert hook in next space, yo, draw yarn through space, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook) 3 times in same space, yo, draw yarn through 4 loops on hook.

Instructions

Ch 6 and sl st in first ch to form a ring

Rnd 1: Ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), (dc, ch 1) 7 times in ring, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join.

Rnd 2: Ch 5 (counts as dc, ch 2), *dc in next ch-1 space, ch 2**, dc in nect dc, ch 2; rep from * around, endng last rep at **, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join.

Rnd 3: Ch 3, (counts as dc), 2 dc in next ch-2 space, *dc in next dc, 2 dc in next ch-2 space; rep from * around, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join.

Rnd 4: Ch 6, (counts as dc, ch 3), skip next 2 dc, *dc in next dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc; rep from * around, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join

Rnd 5: Sl st in next ch-3 loop, ch 3 (counts as dc), 2 dc in same loop, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-3 loop, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-3 loop, ch 2, (3-tr puff st, ch 3, 3-tr puff st, ch 3, 3-tr puff st) in next ch-3 loop, ch 2**, 3 dc in next ch-3 loop; rep from * around, ending last rep at **, sl st in 3rd ch of beginning ch to join

Rnd 6: Sl st to next ch-1 space, ch 3 (counts as dc), 2-dc puff st in same space, *ch 3, (3-dc puff st, ch 3) in each of next 2 spaces, (3-tr puff st, ch 3, 3-tr puff st, ch 3) in each of next 2 ch-3 loops, 3-dc puff st in next ch-3 loop, ch 3**, 3-dc puff st in next ch-3 loop; rep from * around, ending last rep at **, sl st in first puf st to join. Fasten off.

Weave in ends.

Finger loop: At this point, you’ve made a square motif. Making sure you’re working on the RS of the motif, join yarn to any corner you like with a sl st. Ch 20, sl st in the same space as join space to form a loop. Fasten off.

IMG_1410 Button loop: Join yarn to the next corner to the right of the finger loop. Ch 8, sl st in the same space as join space to form a loop. Fasten off.

IMG_1411Sew a button onto the opposite corner as the button loop.

IMG_1412

IMG_1403Notes: It’ll be a little awkward at first to use such small hooks on worsted weight yarn. The yarn tends to slip from the hook a lot. Work slowly and carefully. It’ll help lessen the aggravation. You could also opt for using thinner sport weight yarn and a larger hook.

    • I’m not sure what kind of problem you’re having. I just emailed it to myself and it went through. It actually just sends a link that redirects you back to the post.

      If you’d like, I could send you a PDF of the pattern. That way you could print it out and take it with you wherever you want.

    Hi there,
    I absolutely love this pattern and was thinking of making them in Black for my bridesmaids to wear. What size hook would you recommend for sport weight yarn?
    Thanks!

    • Firstly, these will look sooooo good on your bridesmaids. Weddings and the like are what I kinda envisioned these for.

      I would probably use a hook no larger than an (F) for sport weight yarn. Any larger, and the stitches will look all loose and wonky. I’m guessing that’s not the look you want.

      That will make a S glovelet that’ll probably fit a 5-5 1/2″ wrist. That will work for the average wrist. These are very flexible and easy to size adjust though. If you need it to fit a larger wrist you can do a few things:
      1) Just make the button loop a bit bigger so that it is looser on the wrist

      2) Follow the pattern and add another round

      3) If the pattern is too confusing, just add a round of half double crochet. They’ll look slightly different from the others, but that’s cute sometimes too.

      4) You can make the larger ones in a larger yarn, say, a DK (#3) weight.

      Hope this helps and I hope your bridesmaids love them.
