Chic Sheep by Marly Bird Texting Gloves

When Red Heart asked if I would participate in a designer tour for a NEW line of yarn I jumped at the chance. I was provided yarn by Red Heart, using Marly Bird’s NEW Chic Sheep Yarn. This yarn is merino 100% wool and perfect for chilly days to keep your hands toasty warm while still allowing you to use your fingers. Available in 24 different colors, I am using the Dragon Fruit colorway and the Sterling colorway. I can’t decide which set I like more!

How to crochet texting gloves

As per usual, my children are my helpers when it comes to child pattern sizing. I just had to show you a photo of my youngest, fresh home from football practice, helping mom model! And then he asked for some gloves in black, so kid approved!

  1. Love the pattern, however, I had to use a much smaller hook to make the adult size. 7mm hook after chaining 30 gave me a starting length of 9 inches. I ended up using a 5mm to make the gloves using your above pattern.
  2. HI! Can you tell me what age the child's fingerless gloves are designed for? My granddaughter is almost 9 years old & generally wears a size 8 clothes. Thank you so much! Kim
      1. Hello .im a newbie to crochet world, but im here to stay:) I see quite often the term "Worsten yarn" please tell me wht does this mean? Here in NZ (New Zealand) we hav 8/3 ply and the recommended size needles or hooks.just wondering. Thank u 4yr very easy 2follow patterns.
  3. Hi I gry to do your parteru but I do not understand nie tezę this part -* ch-1, sk - especially I do not know what iż this * in your parteru.
  4. This was my first attempt at crocheted fingerless gloves and I did end up with a pair that do not look like yours. Yours have a -v-v-v-v- look and mine were simply single crochet all around (vvvvvv). I ended up doing single crochet because the way your pattern is written, I kept ending up with double the stitches each time around. I cannot see how chain one, single crochet in next space (repeating all around) would do anything but increase the number of stitches. Did you intend us to read that we should chain one, skip the next space so that the chain stitch is floating and then anchor the yard again by doing a single crochet into the next space after? Does this stitch method have a name so I may look it up and see more information on how it is performed? Is there a video or photo showing exactly this part? Thanks for the inspiration!
  5. Going to try this pattern. I have a question. I have been looking for a pattern of a sun flower rug. Can you help me? Thank you so much.

  6. These are great. I like the simplicity of them and the notion I can add decorations if desired. What size is the child size or approximate age these would fit? Thank you for the pattern.
  7. Can anyone tell me how much stretch these have? I want to give as a gift, but I don’t have measurements. I know I would be safer just doing a rib stitch in a rectangle, but these look so pretty! Thanks! Val
    1. Hi Val! I'm glad you like them! These have a little stretch to them, though not near as much as the rib stitch would have.
  8. Love the pattern.......but I have a question... you state you use a 7mm hook, is that a G,H,I or J hook?
    1. Hi Shelley! The 7mm hook does not have a letter...it falls between a K (6.5mm) and a L (8mm). I found mine at Hobby Lobby. Hope this helps!
  9. Hello Ashlea, Here I got a perfect hacking tutorial from you. It is the best handcraft hack. I like your Diy method. please keep it up.
  10. I'm still new to crochet, so I'm not understanding how to work in the round if you don't join? Can you clearify? Thank you
  11. I'd like to print this for my personal use. I crochet while sitting with sleeping clients. And need to have a printed page in front of me. I am making these for Christmas gift baskets for our "Making a Difference" local organization.
    1. Me too! I copy and paste free patterns into a Word document for cleaner printing. Then I can add my own notes and save them for future use.
  12. Great pattern as always. A couple of questions.....Adult/Medium Size: In row 27...what is "sts" and do you mean right side vs tight side? It's that way on small size too.
    1. Hi Debbie! Sts= stitches and when I say tight side, I mean to tighten your tension on those 1st 4 stitches of that row. Hope this helps!
  13. Wow ! Congrats ! I’ve been searching for a simple. mitt pattern & this looks like the winner ! I can’t wait to try it ! Thanks Ashlea !
  14. Hello I love your blog and congratulations to your Red Heart venture just got thru making those dish cloths love that pattern so sturdy.
    1. Hi Pat! At this time, I do not have the printable version available...I will add that to my to-do list. Thanks!
  15. Could we use foundation sc for the first row? I would rather use that if possible, it has a better stretch to it. Thank you, Tammy
  16. Love this site. Found it when looking for the egg apron pattern that someone wanted me to make. Then I found the hoodies and I have made 3 baby ones for a charity. Now they are looking for arm and leg warmers for the homeless. Of course I came back here for the pattern for the texting gloves, and felt confident enough to try my own for the leg warmers to match. Next will be the Easy Peasy Beanie. All of them are so fast and easy to make. The instructions and tutorials are awesome as well. Have made them all in hours. THANK YOU.
    1. Hi Janice! Wow, you have been busy! I am so glad you have been enjoying my patterns! Happy Crocheting!
    1. I would also like a print version for a nonprofit knitting class I teach to immigrants. And can I have permission to use your pattern for an Artisan Collective store to help immigrants learn to make products to sell? Thanks. Darlene
