Oh I am so sorry I forgot to say what hook I used. I used a G hook.

<Row 27: sl st into the first 8 sc. ch 1 sc in each sc across blo.>

I'm pretty much a semi-beginner crocheter but I thought I'd be able to do this but I'm sorta stuck here. I got the sl st into the first 8 ch but it's the ch1 sc in each sc that's got me stumped. Is there anyway you can explain it differently? I've figured the sl st makes the thumb area but.. what I don't understand is if it's in the first 8 stitches.. where does it actually connect to the rest of the.. wristwarmer? ahhhh sorry!

Hey gremlin ~

After you make the 8 sl stitches, you will ch 1 and then continue down the row doing single crochets. Then you will turn the work and do the next row right up until the sl stitches. This will create the short side of the glove (thumb part).

I hope that makes sense. Let me know.

Ahh, I wish I had saw this thread before I started crocheting a scarf this weekend. I don't really need another scarf, but the yarn was too soft and fuzzy to resist crocheting into something.

This pattern looks fantastic! I think I'll try it over winter break. I would seriously consider frogging my currently crocheted half of a scarf (esp since it's going to be thinner & shorter than I'd like due to slight yarn shortage) in order to make these, but I've already spent 4 hours knitting, frogging, & crocheting and then another 4 hours frogging and then crocheting again. I quite obviously haven't crocheted since this summer *sigh*

Thanks for the awesome pattern Lydia!

I am a beginner at crochet, but I have made it most of the way through this pattern.  I am stuck at where you finish off the wristwarmer.  I end up on the long side of the glove, but it says to slip st the short side first. The only thing that I can think of is that "finish off" is a stitch all the way up.  Is that right?  If so, what kind of stich?  Also, if you don't sew the thumbhole, then isn't the top eight lines of the crochet left open (instead of an opening, a slit?)?  Should you sc three lines or something and then slip st?  I am so confused!  Somebody please help!

I'm actually working on a pair right now...so when I get to the last part where you sew the sides together, I will take pictures to make it clearer for those who are confused.

OKay here are some pictures to hopefully help you all with the finishing off part.

When you get to the last row it should look like this:

The next step is to fold the short edge up to the long edge matching them up. You'll still have a small bit on the long side that isn't matched up, that will be the top part of the wrist warmer.

Slip stitch the seam you just folded till you get to the end of the short side.

NOw match up the two sides of the long side and slip stitch them up.

They should look like this when you are done! I hope this helped some.

sigh I don't know what I did but it ended up being too tight at the hand part. I just realised I probably won't get it right because I'm skinny so either one portion or the other will be too loose or too tight Sad No worries.. I made it a wrist-band but will be attempting this again because i LOVE the look of the final product Smiley
