fingerless gloves pattern

Hooray!  I finally finished the gloves, got the pattern written down, and took some pictures in today's afternoon sun.   

I'm kind of excited about these gloves.  The yarn is soft, so they're warm, but not itchy or bulky.  Actually, they're pretty much perfect for typing or even crocheting on nights when the air is just a little chilly.  

So, here's the pattern.  Enjoy!
(Oh-If you run into snags, let me know via comment here or you can e-mail me at charlottelaughs at gmail dot com, and I'll be happy to translate for you.)

Separation of Thumb hole from finger holes:  Using your hand as a guide, estimate where the thumb on the gloves should be.  Mark that stitch on both sides of row 21.  Sc around to that stitch, then skip all remaining stitches and sc in next stitch (hole for thumb made.)  You now have a larger hole for the fingers and a smaller hole for the thumb.  Continue with sc around the larger hole for three more rounds, closing each round with a sl stitch and a ch 1 (I usually have about 19 stitches around for the larger hole).  When you've done your final sl stitch, sl stitch over and down to the first round on the thumb hole, and sc around that one four times as well (I usually have 8 or 9 stitches around for the smaller hole).  Finish off.

Turn glove over, and starting at beginning chain row, make one row of dc around.  Cuff made.

  1. I need something like those in a discreet flesh color. My wrists always get cold when I'm sitting in meetings. I try to remember to wear a suit coat so I can pull the sleeves down but even then I am often holding one wrist in the other hand, trying to warm it up.

  2. You're in luck mom! I'm heading out to the store right now. I'll see if I can find a color that will work and get going on them. What a good idea.
