Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern
It can be a challenge to stay warm in the winter, especially when gloves make it hard to use our phones and function. That’s why I love crochet fingerless gloves. They’re what people used before texting gloves, and they’re just as good. This particular pair uses the lemon peel stitch.
They have a little hole for your thumbs and a ribbed cuff around the bottom. Made as a rectangle and folded and seamed together, these gloves are incredibly easy to crochet. If you enjoy crocheting simple shapes like rectangles, you may want to check out our Crochet Anything with Rectangles class where you'll take the basic shape you already have down pat and turn it into useful, practical, and beautifully professional projects.
These crochet gloves are super convenient and comfy for driving or running errands. And you can text while wearing these unlike with a pair of mittens.
This pair is made out of cascade 220 superwash merino. It’s a100% washable wool for easy care and warmth this winter.
Everyone can always use some warm winter gloves and these are a stitch to make.

Could these be done in the round versus rows? Thank you in advance!
Yes, just tinker with it as needed for what works best for you and where you would have your opening for the thumb, work back and forth however many rows you want your opening to be, and then continue back in the round again until finished.
Well, I’m guessing you’ve already fixed this but for anyone else stumbling upon this pattern like me: you can totally work it in the round. I did it by slip-stitching the cuff together before rotating, and then joining each row with a slip stitch before chaining 1. For the thumb hole I stopped slip stitching when my glove reached the correct height, and then when the hole was big enough I started slip stitching again. I’m very happy with my result!

I made a pair of these for my husband last week. I wanted something different to work on while my hands rested from a 9mm metal hook working on bulky yarns. This pattern was very easy and I was finished so quickly! I loved working this stitch so much that I found the perfect color in a velvety yarn for a scarf and hat for my Grandson’s girlfriend for Christmas. Thank you for sharing this quick and satisfying pattern.
