Size G crochet hook
Yarn needle
Sc – single crochet
Ch – chain

  • Start with main color. Make a slip knot. Chain 33 stitches. Make sure this fits around the largest part of your hand. Add or decrease chains if you need to. You want it snug, but you want to be able to get it over your hand. Join end of chain to first chain stitch.
  • *Ch 1, sc around, join. Repeat from * once. Ch 3, dc around, join. Ch 3, dc around, decreasing three times evenly around, join. Ch 3, dc around, join. Ch 3, dc around, do NOT join. Ch 3, turn, dc around, do NOT join. Ch 1, sc around, join. Ch 3, dc around, join. Fasten off. You worked from bottom of the “glove” to the top.
  • Join color number two with a slip stitch to the bottom row of the glove. Ch 1, sc around (33 stitches, if you started with 33 stitches. If not, make it whatever number your chain started with), join. *Ch 3, dc around, dec 4 times evenly around, join. Repeat from * once. Fasten off. Bottom section should fit close to your arm. Decrease more or less times as necessary to fit correctly.
  • Join color number two to the top row of the glove. *Ch 1, sc around, join. Repeat from * once. Fasten off.
  • You can leave plain or embroider a pattern onto your glove using a strand of yarn and a yarn needle.

I love the gloves but are they for little girls or grown women? I can't tell. (Hope they would fit my college age daughter!)

They are for grown women.

I would love to make these for a toddler. How can I do that?

Hi Amy, The way you could make them fit larger or smaller is starting with that first chain you make. If you do a shorter chain and less stitches in the round, you will have a smaller handwarmer. Since most of the directions have you just working the same number of stitches around or back and forth, if you start with less stitches you will end up with a smaller tube
