Crochet Patterns for Baby Gloves

Even the little ones feel the chill of the winter months. Since every parent knows how sensitive babies are, you should take precautions by crocheting cute, warm baby gloves to keep them warm.

This is not just about making your baby happy; a homemade baby glove is a wonderful gift idea for friends with newborns. Crocheting is also a lot of fun which means you will definitely enjoy the creative process. You cannot go wrong with our simple baby glove crochet patterns!

Babies have such delicate skin, which is much more sensitive than that of adults. This is why you should attach great importance to choosing a soft wool fabric that will not scratch or irritate their skin.

Fine wool is therefore always a good choice when it comes to babies clothing. Alpaca, Cashmere or merino wool, for example, would be great wool choices for this project. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an expensive fabric like cashmere wool, which is the preferred wool fabric of the upper class.

And if Cashmere or Alpaca is not within your budget, you cannot go with merino wool. This costs only a fraction of what you have to pay for cashmere and is soft and gentle on your baby’s skin.

This project is particularly suitable for crochet beginners since you wouldn’t be crocheting a thumb here.

The pattern is very simple and easy to master, especially for beginners. You don’t need to have any complicated crotchet skills for this; all you need to know is how to execute single crochets, thread rings, half double crochets and circles.

You should also be able to change color when crocheting this particular design. These mittens aren’t just popular for babies; you can use the same pattern to crochet mittens for children, teenagers or even adults.

BABY GLOVES with thumbs

This crochet project is a little more sophisticated but still relatively easy. These cute gloves are made of two different colors, though you can choose to have them in plain colors if that is what you desire.

Here are some crocheting techniques that you need to master for these crocheted baby gloves: the thread ring, single crochet stitches, slip stitches, chain stitches and whole double crochets.

You can also use this pattern to learn how to crochet cute mouse teeth to decorate the cuffs with cute borders.

As you probably know, wool quality varies, and not all yarns can be compared in terms of quality. For example, we like to buy our wool from Pascuali because, in our opinion, both the quality and the price-performance ratio are perfect!

It is important to know the size of the baby’s hands to ensure that the gloves not only look cute but also fit well.

Size specifications for certain ages are purely speculative, so you need to measure the baby’s hands in advance. 

The best way to get the right size is to measure the length and width of the hand. For the second model, measure the centimeters of the thumb set.

Here are instructions on how best to adjust the size of your crochet piece when crocheting:

  • After the 3rd round, measure the width of the glove and then decide whether you need to make it wider or not.
  • Adjust the length before you crochet the base of your thumb. The larger the palm, the later the thumb set occurs.
  • You should also increase the number of air stitches for the thumb hole for babies with larger hands. You will need to work with a sense of proportion.
  • Measure the complete length after crocheting the thumb set. The cuff should extend a little over the wrist.
crochet Baby gloves for winter

Baby gloves are some of the most basic requirements of a baby’s wardrobe. But why buy gloves when you can easily crochet them yourself? A lot of love goes into creating self-crotched gloves, which is a big part of their appeal. The instructions mentioned above are perfectly suited for beginners, so what are you waiting for?
