Taking Pictures of your Hands is Incredibly Difficult

Lace Fingerless GlovesLace Fingerless Gloves

Pretty much exactly what the title says! I made some fun lacy fingerless gloves to keep my hands toasty while I type at work. I’m wearing them right now, and I have to say they are quite effective. I used this pattern and made them using the instructions to make them smaller. I guess I have incredibly small hands, because I had to remove two rows of shells! One from the palm area, and one after the thumb opening. I used the same Lion Brand Cashmere Blend yarn from my slouchy hat, and this stuff really is bliss to crochet with. It takes about one skein of the yarn, so this pattern is a great for a nice-but-pricey yarn!

One tip: don’t bother cutting the yarn after the wrist ribbing. Simple slip stitch one stitch over, and begin the shells from there. The seam is barely noticeable, and then you have four less ends to weave in.

i really love your stuff, it’s so darn cute. i am definitely not as talented as you, but i’m going to try to do these mitts! i’ve got a couple of girls at work that i’m teaching how to crochet and we had some gloves just like this at work that we all gawked at and wanted to be able to make! Thanks for the pattern link and for the great photos!

This isn’t a question for this pattern it’s acctually for the puffy slouchy hat, it wouldn’t let me comment on that one. I’m having trouble with this part 16: ch 1, (sc in next 3 sts, dec over next 2 sts) around. Join. [48], I was wondering how to do it I either end up with 44 stitches or I think 36 or 38. If you could email me at
