You met me at a really strange time in my life.

i didn't use a pattern for these, but they were very easy to make up as i went along. Smiley they ended up much longer than i anticipated, but i really like that about them now. i can't wait for late fall when i can wear them under a jacket and there won't be any drafty sleeves if i still feel like wearing tshirts! (you know how it goes...the breeze up the sleeves that gives you a chill because you weren't smart enough to wear long sleeves and it's not cold enough for gloves yet?!
anyway, enough chatter, here's my gloves:

they shaped really well, and they don't even fall down my arms when i'm wearing them! i considered doing a corset-style lace-up tie thingy on the sides, but then i realized how difficult that would be to tie for myself that high up on the arm!
if you're interested in making some, all i did was ch about 45 or 50, then hdc until it was wide enough to reach around my wrist. i seamed up as much as it would go, and then added a few more rows in the top half to make it wider at the top than it was around the wrist. for the thumb, i just ch 5 st and sk 5 and kept going, just like you would if you were making a button hole. to make the little sleeve for the thumb, i just sc around and around the hole until i got the length i wanted.
i'm sure my instructions don't make any sense at all! if anyone is interested, i can answer questions, or try to make that makeshift pattern more clear!

Those are very cute! You could put a fake corset tie up- just thread the ribbon in the crochet holes of a finished pair, so that they aren't really what would be keeping them up (if that makes any sense). That way, you could tie them before you put them on, but it would look like they tied shut.

Yeah, shorted out. Finally a lie too big.

Those look nice and warm! And I like the corset lacing idea. Smiley
