So, i had saved this picture of some embroidered fingerless gloves ages and ages ago and finally decided to try and duplicate them.
Blurry close up
The brown yarn was some 100% percent handspun lambswool i picked up at a thrift store for a buck. The rest is all leftover, and i made the pattern up myself.
And for kicks, i thought they'd be usefull since today is the first day of spring break, and it snows, i think this is my less than thrilled face
Its starting to melt but we're supposed to get more tonight. Silly washington weather. Pattern
This is the first pattern i've written so im not sure if its totally clear..
I have pretty small hands, so im not sure if these would fit everyone but they're about 6 1/2 inches around the wrist.
*** Please only use this pattern for personal use only, so no selling the pattern, or the product, thanks!
I used some sport weight wool and i *think* a size e hook.
On to the pattern
1. Chain 35, slip stitch into circle (wrist)
2. Sc in each stitch around. Join.
3. Dc in each stitch around- join
4. Fpdc (front post dc) in next, bpdc (back post dc) in next. im not sure if that totally makes sense but you'll be going like this -- bpdc,fpdc,bpdc,fpdc alternating around.
5. Repeat step 4 for 6 more rows.
6. Dc in each. (I had 35 around by now.)
7. Alternate 2 dc in next and 1 dc in next
8. Dc in each stitch
9. Dc in next 8, 2 dc in next
10. Sc in next 8, count 8 from where you started on the opposite side, single crochet through it to seperate a section for your thumb. (this is confusing, but just count 8 directly on the other side and this will form the thumb hole) Im not sure if that made any sense, you can ask if you need help
11. Sc in each stich around LARGER section, (hand section)
12. Dc in each stich around hand section
13. Repeat step 12 for 3 more rows
14. sc in each around
15. This step is also confusing, but seperate the hand section using the same technique as the thumb. I divided the hand section into 10 sc for each finger. Then i tied off each one. Then in each i increased by doing 1 sc, 2sc, in each stitch around till it was comfortable for each finger. I really hope this makes some sense.
16. Now do the same for the thumb slot.
17. Now i went around the wrist and worke a row of sc then 2 rows of dc, you cant increase here if you need too.
18. Hopefully you've understood enough to make it to this point! Now do it all over again for another glove, then decorate!
