I've made mittens and fingerless mittens but never gloves.  I thought I'd have to learn knitting before I could make gloves.  This winter while it snowed in NYC, I was in Los Angeles and I stumbled upon a great vintage crochet book marked $1.  The woman actually charged me $2.50 for it insisting I should pay it because it was a charity shop. Huh  But that's another story all together.

This is my first project from the book and my first attempt at gloves.



As you can see the photos in the book are incredible.  It really takes you back to the early 80's.  This one in particular features fake snow in the couple's hair.

Thanks for browsing!

OMG!!! I have that book!! haha. I got it at a Salvation Army recently. I took out a few patterns that I liked before turning it over to a friend of mine. However, that exact pattern is the one I took out.
I tried to crochet convertible mittens before, but they turned out very "holey" and didn't seem like they would keep my hands very warm. However, these look quite warm!! I might have to try out this pattern now. Smiley

Awesome!  It's a great book.  The fashion photos are amazing.  My book was missing a few pages too, so someone may have snatched some of the good patterns.

I just posted another project from the book here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339036.0

I have that pattern! The instructions said tapestry yarn. What yarn did you use?
