These are incredibly easy to make and so easy to customize! I think I might sew some buttons onto mine.

Yep! Basically, it's a tube done in mesh stitch, with a hole for the thumb. The nice thing is that you don't have to shape it because the mesh just conforms to your hand shape.

This pattern varies depending on your hand size and the hook that you use. For this particular one I'd recommend a yarn that's medium-weight; I used Caron simply soft, since it's a little less bulky, but any acrylic will do.
It also looks good in a fine yarn, but that means that you'll have adapt the pattern, doing more rows and skipping more stitches for the thumb hole.

1) Chain enough stitches so that it will wrap around your PALM (not your wrist; otherwise you won't be able to pull them on). For me, it was 26. You want it to be an even number because of the mesh stitch part.

2) Join your chain in a ring with a slip stitch. Double crochet for two rows.

3) Mesh Stitch: Chain 4, skip one crochet, *double crochet in the next crochet, chain 1, skip one crochet* etc. until you get to the end of the round; slip stitch that last chain 1 to the 2nd loop in the 4 chain that you made at the beginning of the row.

4) Repeat step 3 for 3 more rows; 4 mesh rows and 2 double crochet rows total.

5) For the 5th mesh row, this will be exactly the same as the others except when you get to that last double crochet, you don't chain 1 and join to the beginning of the row; instead, turn your work and start a new row (this makes the thumb hole), crocheting in mesh stitch all the way to the beginning. You should have 6 rows of mesh stitch by now, with a gap for the thumb hole.

6) Chain 1 and join to the beginning of the row just like in step 3. Do one more row of mesh stitch (7 mesh stitch rows total)

7) Double crochet two rows.

The instructions are exactly the same for the other glove!
*Note on weaving in ends: I recommend working the loose ends into the crochet as you're crocheting; it saves on hassle and trying to hide them afterwards.
