Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Crochet tip: Replace first tr [US dc] on each row with 3 ch. Finish each row with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

Decreasing tip: Work 1 tr [US dc] but wait with the last pull-through (= 2 sts on hook), work the next tr and now pull thread through all 3 sts on hook = 1 tr dec.

Glove: Worked from top down, i.e. crochet all the fingers first, and then continue with the hand. Read UK/US above!

Little finger: Crochet 4 ch with Alpaca and crochet hook size 3 mm [C] and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 8-10-10 tr in ring – see Crochet tip. Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr until finger measures 5-6-7 cm [2”-2 3/8”-2¾”]. Remember the crochet tension/gauge! Cut the thread and put piece aside.

Ring finger: Crochet 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 10-12-12 tr in ring Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr until finger measures 6-7-8 cm [2 3/8”-2¾”-3 1/8”]. Cut the thread and put piece aside.

Middle finger: Crochet 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 12-12-14 tr in ring Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr until finger measures 7-8-9 cm [2¾”-3 1/8”-3½”]. Cut the thread and put piece aside.

Index finger: Like middle finger until finger measures 6-7-8 cm [2 3/8”-2¾”-3 1/8”]. Cut the thread and put piece aside.

Thumb: Crochet 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 12-14-16 tr in ring Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr until thumb measures 5-6-7 cm [2”-2 3/8”-2¾”]. Cut the thread and put piece aside.

Left hand: Work 1 tr in 5-6-6 tr on ring finger, continue with 1 tr in 6-6-7 tr on middle finger. Work 1 tr in each tr all the way round index finger and now continue with 1 tr in each tr (= 6-6-7 tr) on the other side of middle finger and 1 tr in each tr (= 5-6-6 tr) on the other side of ring finger = 34-36-40 tr. (there will be small holes between fingers, sew these tog afterwards). Cut the strand. Work next round as follows: work 1 tr in each 4-5-5 tr on little finger, and continue round the hand, at the same time dec 6 tr evenly – see Decreasing tip, and finish round by working over the remaining 4-5-5 sts on little finger = 36-40-44 tr on round. The beginning of round is now in the middle of the little finger. Now insert a Marking Thread (MT) in piece (= mid side) and continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr. When piece measures 4 cm [1½”] from MT work next round including the thumb, i.e. crochet across the hand = 18-20-22 tr, 1 tr in each tr on thumb and crochet the remaining tr across hand = 48-54-60 tr on round. Insert a new MT at the other side of piece, i.e. 6-7-8 tr in from each side on thumb. Now dec for thumb gore as follows: continue in the round, at the same time dec 1 tr on both sides of MT on every round a total of 6-7-8 times – see Decreasing tip = 36-40-44 tr. Continue with 1 tr in each tr until glove measures 10-11-12 cm [4”-4 3/8”-4¾”] from MT on thumb. Continue with wave edge as follows:

Wave edge:
Round 1: crochet (1 tr, 1 ch, 1 tr, 1 ch) in each tr.
Round 2 and 3: Crochet (1 tr, 1 ch, 1 tr, 1 ch) in each ch. Cut the thread and fasten.

Assembly: Sew a small st between fingers to close the holes.

Work another glove the same way.

Mangler der ikke opskrift på vante til højre hånd?

DROPS Design 25.01.2019 kl. 11:02:

Hei Mette. Oppskriften er blitt endret, begge vanter strikkes likt - etter nåværende oppskrift. Takk for beskjed og god fornøyelse.

Silvia 28.10.2018 - 18:45:

Buonasera ho 2 domande: 1)Ho fatto tutte e 5 le dita ma non riesco a capire come “attaccare “ le dita e scendere al palmo, c’è Uno schemino? 2) i centimetri scritti si riferiscono rispettivamente alle taglie S M L? Vico la o da un po’ ho anche comprato dei filati ma per ora non mi sono mai cimentata con questo capo. Grazie e spero in una vostra risposta

How about "Royal wave" LOL

Nayla Menassa 20.02.2015 - 18:04:

Toute l'explication du crochetage de la main et comment procéder pour coller les doigts je ne la comprends pas et puis vous ne dites rien à propos de l'auriculaire.

DROPS Design 21.02.2015 kl. 09:22:

Bonjour Mme Menassa, on crochète d'abord chaque doigt séparément, puis on les assemble en crochetant la moitié des mailles de l'annulaire, du majeur puis tout l'index et de l'autre côté du majeur et de l'annulaire. On crochète ensuite l'auriculaire (avec des diminutions), puis on crochète la main en rond et on ajoute ensuite le pouce. Bon crochet!

Nayla Menassa 20.02.2015 - 17:50:

Bonjour je voulais demander à propos des instructions pour crocheter la main droite. Merci

DROPS Design 20.02.2015 kl. 17:54:

Bonjour Mme Menassa, les 2 gants sont identiques, vous pouvez réaliser le gant droit de la même façon que le gauche. Bon crochet!

Sam 26.11.2012 - 05:12:

Hi, I don't see info for how to stitch the right hand. I'm assuming there's a difference because the instructions clearly state "left hand" as opposed to "for both hands" or something like that-- is there a difference, or are they both made the same way? Thank you!

DROPS Design 27.11.2012 kl. 14:42:

Dear Sam, you are right, you have then to work the right hand, a correction will be added. Happy crocheting!

We hebben de tekst aangepast, ik hoop dat het zo duidelijker is. groeten Angelique

Monique 11.02.2012 - 09:23:

Goedemorgen! ik begrijp nu hoe het bedoeld wordt, na de eerste steek doorhalen (dus een complete steek) inderdaad 2 lusjes op de haak. maar uit de tekst lijkt het, of alleen maar na het insteken,al 2 lusjes stonden. dus dat was een beetje onduidelijk, maar nu is het helemaal duidelijk! bedankt voor het lezen nu komt het wel goed met de mooie handschoenen.

Monique 10.02.2012 - 15:14:

Tine, ik weet wel hoe ik stokjes moet minderen, maar in de tekst klopt ietsvolgens mij niet bij de mindertip:= 2 lusjes op de haaknld.na die doorhaal zijn dat er 3. wilt u dat nog eens bekijken, dan weet ik het zeker? bedankt.

Er is een link naar een video hieronder het patroon voor het minderen met haken. Hier zie je precies wat je moet doen.
