Free Crochet Pattern – Pointless Gloves

I wrote this pattern specifically for some yarn I bought at Yarn Heaven forever ago and had been hoarding. I finally convinced myself that I had to actually use it, that it was doing no one any good sitting in my stash box. But I had to do something worthy of the yarn. Soooo, this Pointless Gloves pattern was born. I think it will be good for using up leftovers in the stash box. I’ve been through the pattern pretty thoroughly, but all the same, if you find an error please let me know and I will correct it.

    I started working this pattern and got to row 6 and am not quite sure what to do since there are no half doubles to work into. The previous row consists of triples. Unless I am doing something wrong. I love the look of the gloves though.

    Hi! I corrected it just a moment ago. It was supposed to say “trc” not “hdc.” Thanks so much for the heads up, and sorry for the typo!
