Home Row Crocheted Fingerless Gloves

I saw this pattern http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/riika/riika.html and I wanted to make some for my sister for Christmas, but alas we have big hands and this thing was too small. So I decided to make a keyhole type opening in them, then I added some decorative stitches. I hope that she likes them! Let me know what you think too! Thank you!

*Note* I have big hands  Wink, so this pattern could be adjusted to fit a smaller or bigger hand just decrease or increase the chain base to fit around your hand, then make the chain for the Thumb hole smaller or larger. To fit!

Materials: 1 skein of yarn (About 80 yards)
J crochet hook

Stitches used:
CH   Chain
SC   Single Crochet
DC   Double Crochet
SL ST   Slip Stitch

Left Hand Glove:
Start: CH about 18-22 times (Enough to fit around the largest part of your hand).

Row-1: CH 1, turn, work SC in each CH.
Row-2 & #: Repeat Row-1 (2 times)
Row-4: CH 2, turn (PIC1), skip 1 SC and DC in next SC (PIC2), go back and DC in the skipped SC (PIC3 & 4), Repeat across.(PIC5)
*If needed add one DC to the end.* This is a crossing DC pattern looks like Xs.
Row-5:  CH 1, turn, SC in each stitch across.
Row-6 & 7: Repeat Row-5 (2 times), at end of row 7 SL ST to the chain to connect
Row-8: CH 1, SC in each SC, SL ST into CH
Row-9: Repeat Row-8
Row-10: CH 1, SC, (Thumb hole section) Chain 7, skip 6 SC, and SC in next stitch, SC across, SL ST into CH
Row-11: CH 1, Sc in each stitch or chain space. (You may want to consider decreasing the number of stitches to make the glove more fitting!) SL ST in to CH. (Repeat until long enough to cover hand. Finish with a SL ST.

Right Hand Glove: Replace Row-10 with alternate row
Alternate Row-10: CH 1, SC across until 7 stitches are left in the row, (Thumb hole section) Chain 7, skip 6 SC, and SC in next stitch, SL ST into CH

Weave yarn into glove.
Turn inside out.
Sew (or tie) a button to one side of the bottom of the cuff.
Weave in yarn.
Use opposite side of cuff as the buttonhole.
