Just finished these and I love them!

Top view



Palm side



I dug this yarn out of my remnants bin; I made socks of it years ago and had a bunch left. The labels are long gone, but I remember it is Schoeller, and cotton/wool blend, two shades of cream/ecru plied together. It made great gloves. (Also great socks Wink)

This really is a wonderful pattern and the short-row shaping is lovely. (That is something I had never done in crochet before.) I did want to note that I downloaded the errata (Thanks!) but I think Row 44 instructions are still not right; in order for the pattern to work it should say hdc in next 28 stitches not 29.

Thanks for looking everybody!

Oh, beautiful photos!  Looks like they fit you well, and I love the color.  Thanks again for the tip-off on the stitch count for row 44 - I'll have to get that into the errata.

Thanks MK! And thanks for this gorgeous pattern. I have a hard time not wearing my gloves around all the time. (They just look So Good with my pajamas.)

I will probably end up making a lot more of these - for myself and for other people. After the first one, where I was still getting a feel for the pattern, the second one went super-fast. And I love it when I can crochet things together, instead of sew.   Grin  I think the next set I do might be just plain crochet across the back, instead of the lace, using self-striping yarn. My sister would like that.

Thanks! I made these to go with my vintage London Fog raincoat, and they worked perfectly. I can't say enough how much I love this pattern...and this book. I'm getting ready to make two more things from other patterns in the book to give for Christmas presents!
