Iron Man Inspired Fingerless Gloves


(This pattern originally appeared online at Craftown.com. Copyrights have now reverted to me, the designer.)  
 
Hey Rockers!

Do you have an Iron Man (or Avengers) fan living at your house?  These fingerless gloves will make the perfect gear for your little superhero to wear while crime-fighting and playing!  Crochet a pair of Iron Man gauntlets in any size by simply increasing your base chain to be long enough to fit around the wrist of your superhero and follow the rest of the free pattern.  Simple, easy, and fast to crochet - these superhero gloves will save the day!



Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue.

Size: Child - Adult

Skill Level: Easy

Materials: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Red, Yellow, White and Black
(Worsted weight or cotton yarn)

Hook size: G/4.25mm, yarn needle

Abbreviations:
CC = change color
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
HDC = half double crochet
MR = magic ring
RND = Round
R = Row

Gauge:
5 hdc = 1"

Instructions:

Gloves (Make two.)
Yellow: Chain 31, turn.
Row 1: Half double crochet in second chain from hook and in each chain across, turn.
Row 2: CC to red and chain 2.  Hdc in each stitch across, turn.
Row 3: Chain 2.  Hdc in each stitch across, turn.
Row 4 – 14: Repeat Row 3.
Row 15: CC to yellow and chain 2. Hdc in each stitch across. 
Finish off. Weave in ends.



Circle Applique (Make two.) aka: Iron Man Repulsor Blast
White: Start with a magic ring. (tutorial at link)
Rnd 1: Single crochet 6 sc in magic ring. Join to first sc. Do not turn. (Total of 6 sc.)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around. Join to first sc.  Do not turn. (Total of 12 sc.)
Rnd 3: *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc, repeat from * around to last sc. Join to first sc.  Do not turn. (Total of 18 sc.)

Rnd 5: CC to black.  *2 sc in first sc, 1 sc in each of next 3 sc, repeat from * around to last sc.  Join to first sc. Finish off.  Weave in ends. (Total of 30 sc.)



Bring It Together
Using white yarn and a yarn needle, sew the circle applique onto the red rectangle.  Because this pattern is for a smaller hand, I find it a little easier to sew the applique on first, before sewing up the sides of the glove.  See the image for positioning the applique.  (Just make sure to place applique on the opposite side for second glove.  That way your repulsor blasts are both in the right spots!)
Fold two sides to line up together, with the right side of your crochet facing inwards.  This should also cause your applique to face inwards as well. Line up your colors (red and yellow) as close as possible.

Now, using red yarn and a yarn needle, sew the two short sides of your rectangle together.  About 1 – 2 inches from the top of rectangle (be sure to check where your circle applique is positioned) leave a 1 – 2 inch gap for the thumb-hole.  Finish sewing sides together, finish off and weave in any loose ends.

Turn right side out and wear!

*Extras: if you are crocheting this glove for younger or older children, simply decrease or increase the original chain length to fit their wrist (about 1 inch below the crease at bottom of palm should do it).

*Bonus: I have already had to wash my little superhero’s gloves twice and the good news is – they hold up really well in the washing machine!


Rock the hook,
Tia

Bring It Together
Using red yarn and a yarn needle, sew the star applique onto the rectangle.  Because this pattern is for a smaller hand, it’s a little easier to sew the applique on first, before sewing up the sides of the glove.  See the image for positioning the applique.

Fold two sides to line up together, with the right side of your crochet facing inwards.  This should also cause your applique to face inwards as well. Line up your colors (blue and white) as close as possible.
