I really like the open airiness of these gloves.   Since so many are wearing them as a fashion accessory, not necessarily for warmth, I decided to try making these with #3 crochet cotton thread instead of yarn for spring.   I used an E hook and only made some very minor adjustments and they came out just great.   Thanks for such a super pattern that is very easy and so adaptable.
