This free crochet pattern is called the Lacy Silk Fingerless Gloves. They are truly silky and feel very light and airy. I used the Yarn Bee Hint of Silk yarn that is a blend of Bamboo and Silk.
This yarn is so soft; I just could not resist. I had to buy it. I never heard of this yarn before until I went the first time to Hobby Lobby which was simply a dream come true. You can get the yarn HERE!
I knew right away that this yarn would be perfect for some fingerless gloves. And due its silky texture, I could only imagine using it to create these awesome Lacy Silk Fingerless Gloves.
These Lacy Silk Fingerless Gloves are ideal for special occasions such as Valentine’s Day or even a wedding. They will make you not only look pretty and gorgeous, but they really do make you feel like a million bucks.
How can you use the Lacy Silk Fingerless Gloves?
I will for sure wear these on Valentine’s Day when my hubby takes me out. I can’t wait to show off this beauty and be proud to have them crocheted myself.
The Lacy Silk Fingerless Gloves feature several wonderful stitch patterns such as the cluster in a slant and the popcorn stitch. For the first one I provide you with an easy to follow video tutorial. The popcorn stitch is so easy, I believe you will not need a video tutorial for it. But if you do, let me know and I will make one.
Also be sure to add this pattern to your Raverly Favorites by clicking the button below.
If you add this pattern to you Ravelry Favorites and share it on social media as a link, I will be able to share a lot more free crochet patterns for you all.
In addition, I created a downloadable pdf for you all, that has all the pictures as references added to the back of the pattern, especially the pictures on how to crochet the cluster in a slant which in the free version you only have the video tutorial. So you can choose whether you want to print them or not. That can save you a lot of ink in the long run.
So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet the Lacy Silk Fingerless Gloves.

Fasten off and leave a long piece of yarn for sewing.
Fold the jut created rectangle in half (having the rows just made be horizontal), then using the mattress stitch sew the row ends together for 4 inches, leave a gap of 1 inch (for thumb opening) and finish sewing the row ends together.
Weave in the China Silk ends.
Finishing the top and bottom of the fingerless gloves
Start with the Shantung color and attach the yarn to the top edge closest to the thumb opening.
Round 1: Ch 1, place single crochets evenly all around to have an even number of stitches (I had 30 sc’s), sl st to the first st
Round 2: Ch 1, * 1 sc in the same st, 1 tr in the next st, repeat all around, sl st to the first st
Round 3: Ch 3, * 1 tr in the same st, 1 sc in the next st, repeat all around, sl st to the first st
Fasten off and weave in the ends
Now reattach the Shantung color to the bottom edge furthest from the thumb opening (opposite side of glove opening).
Round 1: Ch 1, place single crochets evenly all around to have a number of stitches that is divisible by 4 (I had 28 sc’s), sl st to the first st
Round 2: Ch 1, * 1 sc in the same st, ch 1, sk 1 st, repeat from * all around, sl st to the first st
Round 3: Ch 8 (counts as dc and ch 5), *Popcorn in next ch-1 sp, ch 5**, dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 5; repeat from * all around ending last repeat with **, join with sl st to the 3rd ch of the ch-8.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
