This Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves Crochet pattern - quick to crochet and they are the perfect accessory to complete any outfit. Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern

As much as I try to deny it, the cooler weather is here and winter is on the way. I’ve been wanting to design a new pair of crochet fingerless gloves for a while now, so I guess there’s no better time.

Fingerless gloves are my go-to these days as I find I’m constantly needing my phone to check email, respond to texts and deal with business matters. These gloves help to keep a large portion of your hand warm while giving your fingers a little more freedom.

Keep your hands cozy on a chilly day with these gloves. I’m calling this the “Elizabeth” fingerless glove pattern as this crochet pattern uses the Elizabeth stitch. You may remember that I created a stitch tutorial a couple of weeks ago showing you how to create this beautiful stitch – see the tutorial here.

These crochet gloves are quick to make, taking only a 2 -3 hours to complete. They are the perfect accessory to complete any outfit. With the holidays on the way, they also make a thoughtful handmade gift to give to your friends and family.

This Easy Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves Crochet pattern is also quite adaptable – experiment with different yarns and colors.

Easy Elizabeth Fingerless Glove Crochet Pattern

NOTES: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology



  •        Hook: U.S. 4.5mm
  •        Light size 3 Weight Yarn (approx. 140 yards) – Loops & Threads Snuggly Wuggly used in photos
  •        Darning Needle & Scissors


  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet


This crochet pattern is worked in two sections, the ribbed cuff and then secondly the hand portion. To finish it off, the sides are seamed together.

Elizabeth Stitchsee tutorial here

Insert your hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. ch 1.

FINISHED SIZE:  4” wide x 5.5” long


 Ribbed Wrist Cuff

Chain 13 stitches. 

Row 1: Starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, sc into each stitch until you reach the end of the row, turn.

Row 2: Ch1, sc into the back loop in each stitch across the row, turn. (see photo below for help finding the back loop).

Row 3 – 27: Repeat the steps in Row 2 (it should end up approx. 7” long)

Turn the ribbed cuff portion you’ve completed. You’ll now start crocheting along the long side of the section you just made.

Hand Portion

Row 1: 1 sc into the end of each row from the cuff, turn.

Row 2: Ch3, 1 Elizabeth Stitch in every other stitch across the entire row, turn.

Row 3: Ch3, 1 Elizabeth Stitch in every other stitch across the entire row with the last stitch being worked under the turning chain, turn.

Rows 4 – 12: Repeat the steps in Row 3. If you would like the gloves longer, add additional rows.


Fold in half and stitch together using the whip stitch, leaving a space for your thumb to go through (for me that was about 2.75” up for the edge of the cuff, leaving about 1.75” for the hole above and then stitch up the last 1”).

For a more interesting look, add different colors of yarn as you work through the pattern.

      It would be very helpful to provide measurements for a gauge swatch since everyone crochets with different tension

    Oh my!! These look so warm. Wish I would have seen them sooner. I am such a slow crocheter that it will be spring before I finish them. But maybe I can make some fore next winter. They would make adorable gifts.

    your fingerless “Elizabeth Stitch” mittens are just beautiful! How would I convert them into a regular mitt?

      My wrists are very small. If I wanted to size it down a little, how would I do it?

        You need to use a smaller hook, and make sure you measure to make sure it fits.

    LOVE this pattern! Any chance you’ve continued this into a full mitten??? I’d love to be able to make them as mittens too because this stitch is so pretty!

    Love this pattern. It was easy for me as a beginner. After the first pair, I decided to add a row of SC to the transition between thre ribbed cuff and the Elizabeth stitch, and a final row of SC at the top and the result was a beautiful finished look. I also made the cuff area a little longer 16 sts) so it can either be turned as a cuff or worn longer to warm the arm.

    ❤️ this pattern. Beautiful and easy for me as a beginner doing my first ever Elizabeth stitch. After the first pair, which came out lovely, I added a row of SC between the cuff and Elizabeth stitch and a finishing row of SC at the top, which gave it a beautiful finished look. I also made the cuff area longer (16 sts) so it can be turned land cuffed or worn longer up the arm. The result is lots of compliments and requests from friends to make them a pair

    I made 5 pair of these gloves already for Christmas gifts. They’re easy and fast. I added buttons to 3 sets. I adore this pattern. Thank you! Joan

    I LOVE this pattern! This is my first time using the Elizabeth stithe and I really enjoyed it. The instructions are very simple and understandable. I also love the video tutorial. I can’t wait to give these gloves as a gift. Thanks!

    There is no way the pictured gloves are made with 3 weight yarn and 4.5 hook. Looks like chunky yarn. The video tutorial also uses larger yarn and hook. Makes a big difference in how your finished product looks!!!!!

    In the beginning doing the Cuff part seemed to take me forever and I’m an Advanced Crocheter. But it was my fault I was doing other things inbetween, plus I got sick. But once I just sat down and got to it, I’ve just about finished the Beautiful Glove in No time. I love the Elizabeth stitch and in all my 30+ years of crocheting haven’t done across this one I love the Design it makes.
    I’m making these gloves for my Granddaughter for Christmas, she will go crazy for them and I think I’ll see on buttons Too, near idea I saw from another persin, thanks.

      I made a few typos I saw. I’ll be “sewing” in buttons Too and it was a “Neat” idea from another “Reader”, not “persin”

    Love your pattern! I have made some for my daughters and granddaughters. I still have trouble when I turn the ribbed cuff portion and need to sc in each row of cuff to start the main part of the glove. How do I know for sure I’m sc in the right place? Hope my question makes sense! Thank you

    Thanks for the pattern and the stitch tutorial. Just made these gloves as a cute random gift for a friend which only took about an hour! Thanks these are so cute and warm I’m tempted to keep them for myself.

    Thanks for posting this pattern! The gloves were super quick and easy to make, and it was fun learning a new stitch. I added a row of sc at the top of the gloves to make them feel more finished. They’re so cute it almost makes me wish it was cold outside again just so I can wear them… almost.

    This can also be crocheted “in the round” by starting with 26 stitches with a slip stitch to bind, and doing DC all around using a ribbing technique where you alternate around the backside of the DC below it drawing up the loop around the post itself and not through the chain, and front side for the next one all the way around. This way, there is no need for a darned seam. I love the elizabeth stitch though. nicely done!
