Inspiration & Design
The inspiration for these crochet fingerless gloves came to me when I was wearing the matching Mattina scarf. I just love the stitch work so much that I wanted to make it a set. The Mattina scarf has been a popular pattern on the blog ever since it was released, so I thought it would be fun to crochet some matching fingerless gloves as well.
Currently, I know it can be a struggle or even scary getting to the store to buy gifts this year. My thought was that by creating the Mattina Set, it may make it just a little bit easier to crochet a beautiful gift that you can give as a present this year!
The stitch pattern for the fingerless gloves has a beautiful texture that is created by crocheting the triangle stitch. Other stitches used in this pattern include half double crochet and single crochet. Once you get a hang of the repeated rows, these mittens work up quickly.

The construction of the Mattina Fingerless Gloves is very easy. You will crochet a simple rectangle that is then folded and sewn up the sides, leaving a small hole for your thumb. The thumb is then crocheted using the same stitch repeat as the rest of the glove pattern. Adding the thumb portion is completely optional.
For the Mattina Fingerless Gloves pattern, I used a really pretty yarn called Galileo from WeCrochet. This is a lush sport weight yarn that combines the softness of merino wool and the strength and luster of bamboo. I really love this yarn. The shimmer of the yarn displays the texture of your crochet stitches really well. It also has fantastic drape. It comes is 12 beautiful jewel tone colors and consists of 131 yards.
The yarn I used for the matching scarf is Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta. Unfortunately, I could not find that yarn in store. You can use any yarn you want as long as you follow the measurement guidelines below.

Note – When completing a row of Triangle Stitches, make sure you always ch.3 to start the row. A new Triangle Stitch always starts in the last stitch that was worked. Here is a VIDEO TUTORIAL to help.
To know how many chains is needed to crochet your rectangle, you will need to measure the widest part of your hand, which is the area across your knuckles.
Take a fabric measuring tape and wrap it around your knuckles. This measurement in inches is how long you will want your starting chain to be for your rectangle.
You will then need to make sure your starting chain is in a multiple of 2 +1. For example, my starting chain was 34 +1 = 35 chains.
