I want to make Cosplay items for Yoko from the anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. She wears the most awesome gloves, I wanted to crochet a pair, but they have a missing square on the top side.. I'm not worried about the cuff, that will be a seperate part I will attatch in the end.. Do you guys think these would even be possible for little ol' me to make? Any suggestions? Please..

if you start at the wrists and you join the ends, and work in rounds, when you arrive at the square you can just turn and go back in rows till the other side, and go on in rounds again when you finish the square. i never did gloves, so i don't know for sure, but i think they would need some increases on the way, though.
oh, and if you decide to do as i said, remember that if you work in rounds all the time you get one side of the fabric different from the other, while you don't get that if you do rows, turning all the time. so remember to turn when you reach the round starting point, to get an uniform looking fabric.

That would work for sure! It was actually what I was going to suggest. Smiley
