Fur Trimmed Boot Cuffs and Fingerless Gloves
This is more of a recipe than it is an actual pattern. I rarely follow a pattern exactly as it is written. I’m a rebel in that way! The beauty of a recipe instead of a pattern is you can customize the design any way you like, to fit any size. I can’t wait to see how you make this recipe your own!
(Please make note, the yardage is for the design as written. If you make any changes, the yardage you will need to complete the project will be need to be adjusted.)
150 yds WW yarn ( I used Lion Brand Wool Ease)
1 ball Long Fur yarn (I used Lion Brand Romance)
J Hook (or size needed to meet gauge)
Gauge: 15 sts x 14 rows in stitch pattern = 4”
This is the length of the glove or boot cuff. If you would like a longer or shorter version, please adjust the number of chains. (even number + 1 for turning ch)
Row 1: Hdc in the 2nd chain from the hook and ea ch across. (18 sts)
Row 2: (Right Side) Ch1, turn. sc in first st, sc in BLO in ea st across to the last st, sc in both loops of the last st. (18 sts)
Row 3: Ch 1, turn. Hdc in first st, hdc in BLO in ea st across to last st, hdc in both loops of the last st. (18 sts)
Row 4: Repeat Row 2
Row 5 – 16: Repeat rows 3 and 4
Measure the piece around your hand or calf stretching it slightly. Add more rows if necessary. Do not fasten off. [Make a note of how many rows you use on the first one so your second glove/cuff will match]
Fold piece in half, right sides together. Slip st in the FLO of last row worked and BLO of the chains the first 9 sts,(if making the fingerless gloves, slip st in the BLO of the chains only for 5 sts (this creates the thumb hole for the fingerless gloves. If you choose to make boot cuffs, continue to slip st in both sides all the way to the last st), slip st in the last 4 sts in the FLO of the last row worked and the BLO of the chains. Do not fasten off.
Turn Right sides out. Work in the round, do not turn at the end of the round.
Round 1: Ch 1, sc evenly around. (I worked 20 sts into 16 rows) Join with a slip st to the first st of the round.
Round 2: Ch 1, hdc in ea st around. Join with a slip st to the first st of the round.
Round 3: Ch 1, sc in ea st around. Join with a slip st to the first st of the round.
Round 4: Loosely (or use the next hook size up) slip st in the BLO of ea st around.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Turn the piece wrong side out.
Attach the ww yarn to the opposite end with a slip st at the join.
Ch 1, sc evenly around the same number of sts as you did at the top (I worked 20 sts into 16 rows). Fasten off, weave in end.
Attach the fur yarn to the first sc of the last round.
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first st), dc in ea st around. Join to the top of the ch 2.
Repeat Round 1 until you reach the desired length of fur trim. (I worked 5 rounds of fur)
Fasten off, weave in ends. Turn right side out.
I hope you enjoyed this little recipe of mine. Stop by again soon!
