Wonder Woman Gloves

Crochet Wonder Woman themed gloves in adult and child sizes
Spread the love

It dawned on me recently that I tend to make a lot of dress up things for little boys and not too many geared towards girls. It’s obvious why. I pretty much always have two little boys asking for new superhero outfits and accessories. My SIL and I are gearing up to have a booth at a craft show this fall and she asked if I was going to make any little gloves for girls. Hmm… I realized I probably should but had to think for a minute about what it could be and then it dawned on me. Duh! Wonder Woman!!! Not only is Wonder Woman an awesome female superhero but with the recent release of the movie she would definitely be a favorite. 

I love the way these gloves came out too! I chose to use deeper colors to go along with the newest iteration rather than the classic one. The style would work with either subdued or bright colors though. I already knew a few adults who would totally rock these gloves too so I sized them for both adults and kids!

Some Notes:

  • These gloves are worked in joined rounds. Each round will begin with a Ch 1 (will not count as a stitch) and will end with a SS to the first stitch of the round.
  • When changing colors from blue to gold and gold to red, I use this color change method that creates a straighter, cleaner line. I found this tutorial on Pinterest and LOVE it! It’s an extra round but I think the end result is so much nicer. So, basically you are doing a round of sl st in BLO and then doing a round of SC (or HDC) in BLO. If you want to save a bit of time or if you don’t care as much about the color change, you can skip the SS round and either just do the next round in both loops or only back loops. I did a comparison to help illustrate the difference in each. None of them look bad and I doubt that the average person would really even notice how nice the Perfect Color Change looks. But fellow crocheters will understand! Your choice, though. If you do skip the SS round, be sure to note that the remaining round numbers will also change.

These Wonder Woman gloves (and the serious look on my face) say “Don’t mess with me!”

Adult Size

Using I Hook, Make 2

Notes:

Worked in joined rounds. Each SC round will begin with a Ch 1, each HDC round will begin with a Ch 2. All rounds will end with a sl st to the first stitch of the round. Beginning chains do not count as stitches.

With White/Cream/or Gold

1) Ch 24, join with a sl st to form a loop. Careful that you don’t twist the loop. SC in each chain around. (24)

With Blue

2) SC in each around (24)

3) HDC in first, *FPDC around next, HDC in next 2* Repeat from * to *, in last 2 stitches, FPDC, HDC. (8 FPDC, 16 SC)

4-8) HDC, *FPDC around FPDC of last round, HDC in next 2* Repeat from * to *, in last 2 stitches, FPDC, HDC. (8 FPDC, 16 SC)

With Gold/Yellow

9) In BLO, sl st in each around. (be sure to do this loosely, you’ll need to go through these again and you want there to still be some stretch) (24)

10) In BLO, SC in each sl st around. (24)

11) In both loops, SC in each around. (24)

12) 2SC, SC in next 11, 2SC, SC in next 11. (26)

13-Flap) SC in FLO in next 13, Ch 1 and turn (leave remaining stitches unworked) (13 SC, 13 unworked)

14-Flap) SC DEC, SC in next 9, SC DEC (11)

15-Flap) SC DEC, SC in next 7, SC DEC (9)

16-Flap) SC DEC, SC in next 5, SC DEC (7)

17-Flap) SC DEC, SC in next 3, SC DEC (5)

18-Flap) SC DEC, SC in next, SC DEC (3)

19-Flap) SC3TOG (1)

20-Flap) SC (1)

Finish off, leave long tail to sew down.

Now you’ll fold down that flap and begin working in the back loops of the last full round of gold (round 12).

With Red join yarn to either side of the triangle flap. (Attach to the right side for your right glove and the left side for the left glove. This puts the seam on the opposite side of the thumb hole and makes it easier to place.)

13) In BLO, sl st around (including the unworked back loops from Flap Row 13)  (26)

From here you will have to do a little figuring based on where you reattached your red yarn.

14) In BLO, HDC around doing an increase on either side of the glove. (Something like, 2HDC, HDC 12, 2HDC, HDC 12. You can adjust a little if you’d like to line the increases up on the sides, it really isn’t too big of a deal either way.) (28)

15-17) In both loops. HDC in each around. (28)

The next round will place your thumb hole. I gauge this by place the glove flat down folded in half, flipping the flap up helps. You can also try them on at this point (or have a helper do it) so that you can judge where the best place for your thumb would be.

18) HDC until you reach the section you will place your thumb hole, Ch 4, skip 7, HDC around. (21 HDC, 4 CH, 7 Skipped)

19) HDC in each around (place 4 HDC in the chain space). (25)

20-21) HDC in each around.(25)

Finish off. Weave in ends. Sew down the gold flap. Crochet star (pattern below) and sew on.

Crochet is definitely my only superpower! If I could pick another though, I’d go with Teleportation! (And still crochet, of course!) 🙂
