Inspired by The Outlander Knits

This design is inspired by the knitted arm warmers that Claire wears with her Carolina shawl in Outlander season 4.

Claire is seen wearing them as hand and wrist warmers, but in my design, I left a gap for the thumb, so they can be worn either way.

They can be made in any color and are really practical for wearing during the colder months.

Textured Crochet Stitch

The fingerless gloves are crocheted using a simple textured crochet stitch.

This gives them lots of texture and helps to make them look similar to the knitted version.

This is a great beginner stitch pattern as it’s simple to learn and has great results!

Crochet Gloves Pattern


You will make two pieces for the mittens.

Each piece is worked sideways in length.

Each piece is worked with a single strand of yarn.


  • (CH multiples of 2) Make a slipknot and CH 34, turn,
  • Row 1: (RS) CH 1, 1 SC in the 2nd CH from the hook, *CH 1, skip the next CH, 1 SC in the next CH, rep from * to end, turn,
  • Row 2: (WS) CH 1, skip the first SC, * SC in the next SC 1-SP, CH 1, skip the next SC, rep from * to the end of the row. SC in the last st, turn,

*Rep row 2 until the piece measures = 6 inches.

To finish the final stitch, Sl-St and then cut a length of yarn for seaming – around 12/14 inches long.

*This is where you can adjust the width of the mitts – if you need to make them larger to fit around your hand you can easily add more rows until you have your desired length for a comfortable fit.

TIP – Test by placing around your hand/wrist to see if you need to add more rows as you work.

Making Up

  • Fold the piece in half and start seaming from the bottom edge up for around 5 inches, using the mattress stitch (or you can sc the sides).
  • Leave a hold for your thumb to fit through that measures around 1.5 inches.
  • Then, continue to seam the top of the hand for 1.5 inches.
  • Weave in all loose ends.
  • Repeat with the second mitt.

*If you make changes to the length you will have to adjust the measurements for seaming.
