This easy, free crochet pattern is called the Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves. The pattern uses the lemon peel stitch and is made quickly in less than an hour.

Now that I have the Lemon Peel Infinity Scarf and the Lemon Peel Hat free crochet patterns published and available for everyone, it just needs one more pattern to make it complete which is the Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves. All these patterns are part of my collection using the Lemon Peel Stitch. But behold, I will create one more crochet pattern using this stitch so you can swap out the hat for a warmer weather option which is a headband (stay tuned).

The entire Lemon Peel collection features the Premier Yarns Anti-Pilling yarn in the color Twilight Blue. Of course you can use any other worsted weighted yarn for this pattern, but I sure believe the Anti-Pilling

The Lemon Peel Stitch

The Anti-Pilling Heather yarn shows off the Lemon Peel stitch very well in these fingerless gloves. In fact, if you swap out the acrylic yarn with cotton yarn you could even make a washcloth with the below pattern, just make sure you don’t turn it into gloves, but leave it as a square.

The lemon peel stitch is really easy as it features just two basic crochet stitches (single crochet and double crochet). So these Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves sure are a beginner crochet pattern.

Furthermore, I prefer using the Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves over normal gloves or mittens as I can still use my phone, work on my computer or go about living my life but with warm hands. Now of course that might not be ideal for a really cold winter day, but at home or during Spring and Fall these fingerless gloves are the perfect accessory to wear.

To see the Lemon Peel Stitch a bit closer, check out my picture above. You always crochet 1 sc into one stitch which is followed by a double crochet in the next one. Furthermore, you crochet a double crochet on top of a single crochet and vice versa to create the amazing texture and look of a lemon peel.

Once you finish, fasten off. Then fold your square in half and sew the long edge together leaving room for your thumb.

I used the whip stitch to sew the long edge together.

Crocheting the Fingerless Gloves

To keep an opening for your thumb to go through when wearing the fingerless gloves, simply weave your needle through the side of one of the edges until you reach the point when you need to start sewing again. It is best to test it out so the opening is not too large or too tight.

Finishing the Crochet Fingerless Gloves with Lemon Peel

How to wear the Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves

I will wear these beautiful blue Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves with my matching Lemon Peel Infinity Scarf and Lemon Peel Hat. I prefer using them with clothing that does not take the attention away from their beauty.

As you can see I wore my grey coat when showing off these cute and cozy Lemon Peel Fingerless Gloves. The texture and feel of the Lemon Peel stitch really comes out in the sunlight wearing more neutral colors.

Furthermore, the Anti-Pilling yarn allows you to wash them hundreds of times and the yarn will never pill. How awesome is that?
