These were crocheted from this pattern: http://cats-rockin-crochet.blogspot.com/2008/04/crochet-easy-fingerless-mitts-pattern.html

and this is my version



These were also made for a swap and uluru was the recepient! I hand sewed pearl effect beads along the first two rows of DCs. The wool i used was a double knit wool with a gold strand of thread running through it, I can't remember the brand!

How pretty. Those look awsome and who wouldn't love to get them. Your swap partner is very lucky.

Ah, my lovely swap partner!  Well, you already know I wisted these.  The black version looks a bit goth, which is cool, if you like that sort of thing.  Yours look all demure and ladylike.  Which I'm not either heheh.  Anyway.  <3

Right, I completely and unintentionally lied about the pattern I used. I absolutely and definitely looked at the pattern I linked to, but I obviously butchered it completely and did my own thing because I just tried to recreate them again, so I've had to completely redo the pattern but this time I've written it down.

If anyone is interested please let me know and I will post it. The major differences are that my triple dc groups are checkered where as the pattern shows them all up the same column, the way the thumb hole is formed, the length of the wrist warmers and the decorative row at the top.  Cheesy

So completely by mistake I've just made up my first pattern.

You should post your version! I like yours a bit better than the other pattern and of course the pearls are a perfect touch. I've been looking for a crochet fingerless glove pattern (I kept finding knit patterns) so either yours or the other may be a project for me soon ...

Captain Hook would have been a great crocheter, no?

I was looking at the pattern for these exact hand warmers just last night. I like your version better, especially with the pearls. Smiley

Right here goes...my first pattern! Let me know if you are confused or if I've done a pants job and please post pictures when you make your versions.

Terminology: I do use mainly british termnology however, when I refer to dc I mean the english treble (I know this is confusing but I learnt using american patterns) and sc is the english double crochet

Materials: 4.5mm Hook, a needle (for darning ends), a pair of scissors and approx 50g double knit wool

Foundation chain: 26 and sl st to join forming a ring ensuring it doesnt twist

NOTE Make sure that your ring is loose enough to fit over your hand, you may need to make your chain a little looser than you would normally, this doesn't matter because you won't notice it later. If it is too small add a multiple of 3 ch's, and if it's too big reduce by 3 ch's.

Round 1) ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same stitch. *ch 1, sk 2ch, 3 dc in next ch*, rep from * around, ch 1 and sl st to join. (This should create 9 3 dc groups in the round).

Round 2) Sl st to ch1 space, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same space, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 space* rep from * around, ch 1, sl st to join.

Rounds 3 11) Repeat round 2 or for as many rounds as you want, this will determine the length of your wrist warmer from under your thumb.

Making the thumb hole work in rows!!!
Row 12) Sl st to ch 1 space, ch 3, 2 dc in same space  *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 space* rep from * until 8 x 3 dc groups are formed, turn your work

Row 13) Ch 4, *3 dc in ch 1 space, ch 1 * rep from * around, dc in last dc of previous row. Ch 5, sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 4

Working the top work in rounds!!!
Round 14) Sl st to ch 1 space, ch 3, 2 dc in same space, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch 1 space* rep from * until you reach ch 5 space, ch 1, 3 dc in 3rd ch, ch 1, sl st to join.

Round 15) Repeat row 2

Round 16)  Ch 1 sc in ch 1 space, * 4 dc in middle dc of 3 dc group of last round, sc in ch 1 space* rep from * around, sl st to last sc, fasten off and darn ends.

Step 17) Make a matching wrist warmer.
