"The Hobbit" Inspired Gloves

I enjoyed The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey very much... especially when I saw that there were fantastic fiber pieces!

In particular, I am a fan of fingerless gloves, and I saw oh so many different kinds.  Even better, most of them looked easily done in crochet.  So, I set out to figure out a few... Gandalf, Bombur, Ori and Oin.  I haven't been able to get a good look at Bofur's yet... but I will!

The free patterns are available on Ravelry.  You must be registered to download the pattern.

Here are the movie versions.. and my crochet versions.




  1. I love them! (and I need a small project for a change!) *grin*

  2. Yes... you do! lol You gotta mix 'em up!

  3. Would you say this is doable for a beginner?

    1. I think the cabled Oin gloves might be challenging for a beginner... but a determined beginner can do it! It's really a matter of being able to translate the chart, which sometimes comes with experience.

      That said, if you want to give them a try and get stuck, please feel free to ask questions. Chances are, you're not the only one who's thought about it. ;o)
