Captain America 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 Avengers fan living at your house?  These Captain America inspired fingerless gloves will make the perfect gear for your superhero to wear on chilly days or paired with a costume.  Crochet a pair of Captain America gloves in any size by simply increasing your base chain to be long enough to fit around the wrist of the recipient and follow the rest of the free pattern.  Simple, quick and fun to crochet - these superhero gloves will make you a hero! 

I worked the pair for my son up alternating blue and white. You could easily work up a solid blue pair if you are short on time or don't fancy the striping effect.

Rnd 2: *Chain 5. Slip stitch to 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in 3rd ch from hook, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in last ch; repeat from * 4 times.  Finish off.



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.

Now, using blue 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. 

*Extras: if you are crocheting this glove for younger kids, older kids or adults, 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: these superhero gloves hold up really well in the washing machine! 

Rock the hook,
Tia
