Fingerless Crochet Gloves
Hook: J/10 6mm

This is my own pattern! If you use, I’d love to see your work 🙂 I don’t mind if you sell these, just please do not sell my pattern.

Chain 4, sc in second ch from hook back to beginning ch. (3)

Sc in each across. Work in back post up to row 22. You will have 22 rows of 3 sc. Working in the back post will create a ribbed look and make it a little stretchy.

Ch 1, fold the band in half and sl st through both loops all the way across.

Row 1: This counts as row 1 because it starts the actual mitten. Ch 2, dc 22 around the band. Join with sl st in ch space and ch 2.
Row 2 – 6: Dc 1 in each st around. Join with sl st and ch 2. (22)
Row 7: This starts the thumb hole. After you ch 2, turn. Dc 1 in each of the next 18 sts. Ch 4 (loosely) and sl st to join, ch 2.
Row 8: Turn after your ch 2. Make your first dc in the ch 2 space. Dc2tog, dc2tog, then 1 dc in each st across. (20)
Row 9 – 10: Dc 1 in each st. (20)
Row 11: 1 sc in each st around. This will make for a neater, more finished looking edge in my opinion! Join with sl st and fasten off.

Now I’m going to make 2 sc rows with a small decrease on the band. Working on the uneven edge of the band, sl st into any space, I prefer the same space I started the band.

Ch 1, sc in first 10 sts. Sc2tog. 1 sc in the rest, until the last 2. Sc2tog. Join with sl st and ch 1. (20)

Sc in first 9. Sc2tog. 1 sc in the rest, until the last 2. Sc2tog. Join with sl st and fasten off. (18)

You’re done! Just make another one exactly like this for a pair and now you have a nice pair of fingerless gloves for a mild fall day. 🙂

Super Easy Crochet Bunny Applique

bunny applique

This is an applique I made today and posted on my Facebook page for my handmade items that I sell through Etsy called Love, Madison (if you were wondering what the heart and M were for!).

Super Easy Bunny Applique

Make a magic circle.
Row 1: Make 10 hdc in magic circle and join to first hdc; chain 2.
Row 2: Make 2 hdc in every stitch around and join to first hdc; chain 2.
Row 3: In the same stitch you chained 2 in, make 3 dc and 3 hdc. In second stitch of second row, sc into and chain 1.
Row 4: 1 sc in each st across row 3 and fasten off.

For ears: Sl st into the last st you made in row 4. Ch 5 and sc 4 back down and fasten off. Sl st again into the same st and ch 4. 3 sc back down and fasten off. Sew in ends.

For tail: Count from to top stitch you sl st your bunny’s head into, and count down the right side of your bunny’s body 8 stitches. Sl st into this st and ch 3. Make 3 dc, ch 3 and join into same st. Fasten off and sew in ends.

I couldn’t find a pattern for a bunny applique similar to this so I just kind of winged it and made my own. So feel free to use this for personal use or to sell or just whatever! And don’t forget to visit Love, Madison Facebook page, as well as the Etsy shop!
