About the Oliver Fingerless Gloves
At the beginning of the year I made a goal to make more patterns for men. These gloves and the Autumn Chill sweater certainly fit that bill (and I’ve got a few more planned for next year!). I love the simple colorwork and the classic ribbed cuff on these fingerless gloves. You’ll only need to know how to do a few stitches, including front loop only and back loop only single crochet.

- Worsted Weight yarn, 70-90y main color, 20-30y contrast color. I used WeCrochet Twill Worsted in Colors Twister and Graphite Heather
- A size H crochet hook – I love these hooks from Furls!
This is the first time I’ve used the Twill yarn, and I have to say I really enjoyed it! It may easily become one of my favorite yarns. It has great texture and stitch definition and is super easy to work with. I did notice that the Heather yarn is fuzzier than the non-heathered, but I liked them both!
Sizes are based on craft yarn council guidelines and are measured around the four finger knuckles of the hand.
- Men’s Small: 8″
- Men’s Medium: 8.5″
- Men’s Large: 9″
A Great Gift
These gloves are soft, warm, and comfortable. They would make a great gift for the man in your life (or anyone with larger hands). If you use a superwash wool (like I did), cotton, or acrylic, they will be washable and easy to care for. When I had my husband try them on for size, he wanted to keep wearing them while working on his computer!
