So, I saw this thread here and was completely inspired: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=105616.0

However, my knitting skills are less than sub-par (as in, I'm teaching myself, but getting nowhere)
Sooo....I decided to make a simpler version in crochet.
I have to say that I LOOOOVE them. 1 skein of Baby sport bright variagated yarn, a 4.5mm hook and a day in bed with the flu left me with the following:


And...the cheesy action shot, just in case you don't already think I'm a dork!


Comments greatly appreciated, and thanks for looking!

I really like your thumb solution.  Most of them look uncomfortable so I have never made them - your version look mighty comfy - and bright too.. cheery variegated yarn.  My nieces would all want black with charted skulls in them just to be pains..
Did you happen to keep track of what you did?  Silly question. You made 2 of them so you probably did...

So cute!

I'm having the same problem  Sad  I see all these cool knitted things but I just can't get the hang of it...

Thanks everyone for the great feedback so far! Cheesy Grin Shocked  Kiss

Well, it was completely patternless, but pretty easy all-in-all.
Please forgive my poor pattern writing skills...if something is unclear, feel free to ask for clarification, and I'll do my best, I'm 100% self-taught on crochet as well, and don't really know the lingo that well..

ch 35 (or enough to equal the measurement around mid-arm)
join w/ sl st to form circle
dc in each ch 1 round
sc until desired length (from mid-arm to wrist) dropping one stitch every 5 rounds or so
*sc in next 4, then 2sc in next stitch* repeat **'s until round completed, leaving 1 stitch out
^ch 1, turn and 1sc  in each stitch^ repeat ^^'s until desired length (I made 11 rows like this)
ch 1 and join w/sl st to form circle
sc a few rounds until desired length again (I just did 2)

for the edges, I don't really know if the stitch has a name, I did a sl st, but tightened each stitch and added one extra loop and tightened it into a knot. I did this for each stitch around the finger/hand opening, as well as around the thumb-hole....

And another FYI, these are great at work for me, cuz they aren't overly warm, I can wear them at my desk and not get sweaty hands, but they keep my wrist from sticking to the really old laminate when I do my data entry Smiley

I know you are shakey on your pattern writing skills - but I tell you what it makes perfect sense to me and is completely followable.  I have a few folk that want wrist warmers - hopefully I will get to them quickly so I can post up finished objects for you!

Thank you for taking the time to write up the tutorial.  It does make perfect sense to me!
