OML dream teamer Kathleen here, and I'm so excited to be back with another pattern for you guys! This time I'm featuring an awesome crochet moss warmer pattern by fellow OML dream teamer Nathan of loopnthreads.
Ready to add this essential fall piece to your wardrobe the loopnthreads way? Ok let's go!
Hi makers, Nathan here and you know the saying: if the glove fits... Well, this is one pair of gloves you'll definitely want to wear after making. Moss Warmers are essential to your Fall wardrobe. They're made of soft super premium highland wool. - the bulky kind to assure warmth. It has a nice texture stitch made of yummy pastel and saturated color choices. They are an excellent gift for the typist, texter, and writer. I know I like to keep my hands warm, but my fingers free to easily interact with things. The taking off and putting back on personally annoys me, so let's get to what we need to make this pair of glove awesomeness.
Skills you need to know:
CH – Chain
SS – Slip Stitch
HDC – Half Double Crochet
BL | Back Loop
Materials I recommend:
KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Bulky 137 yards per skein (1)
Size K Hook | 6.5mm
Ruler | Tape Measure
Circumference: 6′′ – 6 1/2′′ Height: 7 1/2′′
Note: This item can made with any bulky yarn of your choice of course. I recommend the yarn I use because things like fit, drape, texture, etc. will vary with other yarns. All of my patterns are based off the exact material I use to make it.
Row 1 : SS in 2nd CH from hook, *HDC in next stitch, SS in next stitch*. Repeat from * to *. End with HDC & total of 22 stitches.
Row 2 : CH 1, *SS in BL of next stitch, HDC in BL of next stitch. Repeat from * to *. Always end with HDC in BL. The total number of stitches should always be 22. Repeat R2 until work measures 7 1/2′′.
To finish: Cut yarn leaving a lengthy tail. Sew last row & beginning row together for 1′′. When I sew, I go through the top loops of both sides. Weave in tail to hide for a 2 1/2′′ opening for thumb. Continue to sew work together. Secure tail and hide. Make your second glove and you’re done!
Now that's what we call crochet glove making ease.

Nathan is an OML dream teamer and the knitter behind LoopNThreads. He would be wrong to say he found knitting: it's more like knitting found him. He always had a creative and wild imagination for making things, and now he rarely puts his needles or hook down. Manipulating yarn has introduced him to many great things. It has also helped him connect with the past, being that his great grandmother was a knitter and crafter of many things. Nathan is starting to realize the world is limitless with creativity.
