Ashlea crochet fingerless gloves Are simply awesome crochet project to make!
It’s a great addition to the Ashlea Pattern Collection that consists of an oversized scarf, a beanie and a messy bun hat.
Ashlea Mitts are textured, of course 😊, very stylish and so quick to crochet. With their simple construction they would be a fantastic last-minute crochet gift or a charity project! It will take you no more than two or three hours and less than a skein of yarn to make them! What a fabulous stash buster, aren’t they?
After a long and hot summer, warm and sunny autumn, it wasn’t easy to accept the fact that winter is already here! It’s safe to say that winter is not my favorite time of the year! It’s mainly because I don’t like the cold, nor those white and gray shades and lack of sunlight that comes with it. But there’s something about it that I adore – a cold weather crochet! I love to curl up by the fire, with my hook and yarn, having a hot coffee and watching the snow outside! I love that feeling of coziness and warmth when trying out my winter makes!
My first designs for this winter season were fingerless gloves, Ashlea and Amabella. That is probably because my hands are always freezing outside. And I love the comfort and coziness of the fingerless gloves. They keep my wrists and hands warm while allowing me the freedom of touch.
ABOUT THE ASHLEA MITTS PATTERN
Ashlea fingerless gloves pattern is the result of the request I had after publishing Ashlea Peaks Scarf last winter: to make the matching beanie and gloves! So, if you’ve had a chance to make Ashlea Peaks Scarf, then Mitts, Beanie & Messy Bun Hat will be super easy to make and awesome addition to it! If not, here is your chance to make yourself a fabulous set of accessories that you’d actually wear!
SKILL LEVEL INTERMEDIATE. You should be familiar with working single and double crochet stitches, front and back double crochet post stitches, as well as v-stitch shells (consist of double crochet and chain stitches).
TERMINOLOGY: This crochet pattern uses US Crochet Terminology.
Yarn weight: #4 Medium Worsted Weight/ Aran.
I used two different yarns from the same brand, Alize, for these two samples. One is 100 % acrylic Alize Burcum “Klasik” and it comes in 100g / 3.53oz and 200 m / 220 yds skeins. I used about the half of a skein for one pair or about 100 m / 110 yds in color Camel 368.
The other pair I made using Alize Lanagold Classic, which is a great blend of 51% Acrylic and 49% Wool. It also comes in 100g / 3.53 oz skeins, but it has 240 /263 yds. This time I used two colors: Beige 152 and Terra 36.
There are instructions in the pattern in case you want to make the same two toned mitts.
Crochet hook: 5.5 (US I-9) and the usual things, such as stitch markers, scissors, tapestry needle, measuring tape
SIZE: Small (Medium, Large)
Width 16 (17.5, 19) cm / 6.3 (6.9, 7.5) in & Length 19 cm / 7.5 in
Instructions in the pattern are given for the size Small with changes for the larger sizes given in parenthesis and additional info on possible adjustments. But, in general, size Medium fits most.
How to measure your (desired) size for the Fingerless Gloves
Measure the circumference around the hand at the widest point above the thumb but below the fingers. For a closer fit, you should make your gloves about 1.5 – 2cm (0.6-0.8 in) smaller than the actual hand measurement. Only if you are using a yarn without any stretch, like cotton or linen (which are definitely not the best choices for these accessories) it’s better to make the gloves a size that’s closest to your actual hand circumference.
CONSTRUCTION: Simple. They are made of two rectangular panels, seamed together. You will find e detailed written and photo instructions on seaming, as well as any stitches and parts that could be considered more difficult.
