LuLu D If u make it please let know How it comes out!

Introduction

So I was sitting in my room listening to music when I found this cool hot pink yarn I had bought over the summer in florida. It was super soft and stretchy. So i figured what the hell I'll make something out of this and viola! I made a pair of delicious looking hot pink fingerless gloves. It took me about an hour to make 2 of them. They work up pretty fast.

Materials List

Size 6.5 K crochet hook

Any thick stretchy yarn (the yarn i used had no label so I cant be too specific about the type.)

Finished Size

5.5 inches long, 4 Inches wide. Since these gloves were made to stretch I'll say one size fits all. :-D

Gauge

No specific gauge that i followed. I pretty much just went with however it came out.

Notes

This fingerless mitt is done clompletely in HDC (Half Double crochet) and worked back and forth instead of rounds. when the piece is the length you want you single crochet the sides together.

BLO=Back Loops only

FLO= Front loops only

The Pattern

Row 1:

Chain 29, HDC in 2nd ch from hook, Hdc across. Ch 2 turn.

Row 2: In BLO!

Hdc across. Ch 2, turn.

Row 3: In FLO!

Hdc across ch 2, turn.

Row 4-17:

alternate the hdc stitch in flo and blo.

(example: row 4 BLO, row 5 FLO etc.)

Or keep adding rows until you have them the length you want.

I wear a mediums in womens gloves and the gloves are supposed to be loose fitting.

And then Viola! you have now created easy fingerless gloves that won't take hours away from your day.

These would be great gifts!

This is my first real attempt at writing a pattern so I'm sorry it is unclear in anyway. If you have any ideas or want me to come up with a design for you feel free to PM me.

Have you tried making these in a lighter weight yarn? I have some black glitterspun that I think would make pretty cute, gothy-looking elbow lengths, but I can't imagine wearing something in the summer that wasn't openwork--I'd roast! Anyway, great and simple starter pattern!

I like the simplicity of the pattern!  I tweaked it a little, but it turned out great.  I love the yarn that you used, too.
