Fingerless Gloves Made From Socks

By: Fanatical (and Frantic) Froebeler

In the winter, you always want to keep you hands warm but wearing normal gloves makes it difficult to use your fingers. With this simple craft, you can keep you hands warm and still do what you need to. Make the Fingerless Gloves Made From Socks.

Fingerless Gloves Made From Socks


  1. Our socks are mostly white or grey, So these look a bit utilitarian. I used black yarn so that the stitches are visible. Some socks have a nice sort of "berber" inside, which, if turned out makes a "furry" edge. At first I just took the straight sock part, stitched the space between thumb and forefinger together to keep it in place and wore it that way. But it ravelled. Then I made a seam by hand and again stitched the space between thumb and finger together.
  2. Eventually I wanted it to look more finished, and I made a blanket stitch along the folded over top edge, about 24 of them, each about a quarter inch apart.
  3. Then, with a crochet hook G, (which was a bit big but good for visibility here) I made a double crochet in each blanket stitch, and after that a piquot edge: **5 slip stitches, slip 5 back through slip stitch 3, two more slip stitches and slip stitch through each double crochet. Repeat all around from ** and finish with final slip stitch.
  4. But it doesn't really matter what stitches you use, as long as you know basic crochet. Stitch the space between thumb and fore finger together, and you are done.
  5. Then, with the gray sock, I decided to just single crochet around the whole top edge (lightly basted hem with removable thread and no blanket stitch) making single crochets all around (about 32) and then I did the piquot stitches in each single crochet. Works well on a heavy duty type sock. On more delicate socks a smaller size crochet hook is needed or better yet, use the blanket stitch first.There was a brand thingy on the top of the sock so I hid that with a little crocheted flower.
  6. The white one also has no blanket stitch, I single crocheted straight into the basted hem at the top and added the piquot row. Then I added a slip stitch row of the fuzzy blue yarn below it.

You don't state where you cut the sock? Do you leave the heel on or just use the leg part of the sock??
