these fingerless gloves were GOING to be made with the pattern in the happy hooker, but after much frustration, i decided to screw it and basically made up my own pattern as i went along. i did write it down, the pattern's below. i made them for retroeva in the "i have a disease" swap.

this was my first attempt, and i was quite happy with it. i wasa little unsure about the ruffle, but the glove part looked great.


then i tried to make the second one, about a week later, and i couldn't get my tension to match! after much MORE frustration, i decided to make 2 more gloves at the same time....


since i wasn't planning on making three gloves, i didn't really have time to add the ruffle this time around! i just single crocheted around the top and bottom to finish them off.

now i have ONE glove with a ruffle on it.... i guess i'll just suck it up and frog it!

the yarn is yet another imported from japan and therefore not available anywhere, but i think it's just like sock yarn. it was mostly cotton and hemp, with the bits of green foil spun in. i still can't decide if it's black, or if it's a really really dark green, it just depends on how the light looks! i actually found it because another craftster posted a knit project using it in her blog, and i immediately had to go running off to find it!  
  

pattern:
i think i used a 3.75 hook... but it'll depend on the weight of your yarn as well. gauge isn't super important, since you just keep going until it fits!

follow rows 1-3 of the "ladylike lace gloves" pattern in happy hooker, but chain 31 and sc in back loop of 15 stitches.

row 4: chain 3, turn, dc in 2nd st, *ch 1, skip stitch, dc*, repeat from * to end
row 5: chain 1, sc in front loops across
row 6: repeat row 5
row 7: repeat row 4
row 8: repeat row 5
row 9: repeat row 4
etc,

continue until glove fits snugly around your hand. the last row crocheted should be row 5 (sc all across)
to join, slip stitch edges together.

to finish -
sc around the top and the bottom of the glove.
if you want to put the ruffle on, 2sc in each of the sc stitched around the wrist end, join, ch 1, 2 sc in each of the last row.    

keep in mind that these are the notes i kept as i was working on them, i haven't actually tried to recreate the gloves based on them. if you have any problems, let me know, and if you make the gloves, post pictures!

These are so cute...but forgive my stupidity. Do you attach the top and bottom edges, or the left and right? (I'm guessing the top and bottom, and if I were at home with the HH book it may say so.) And where does the thumb hole go? Is it up where the short rows are, or the other end?

you're attaching the left and right edges - basically you make a rectangle/square (dependant on the size you need), wrap it around your hand and join the edges.

i made these awhile ago, and i don't have them in front of me (since i gave them away!), but i believe the thumb hole is between the short rows and the wrist - basically, the short rows are what adds width to fit over your knuckles, then you leave the thumb hole, then seam it up to close around your wrist.

i don't know if that makes any sense or not!
