Long Fingerless Gloves for Me

These gloves are my own design from start to finish. I have a new book of 300 Crochet Stitches. This is where I found the stitches I used here (specifically, the Spike CLuster Stitch is on page 35.). I really like this book for design reference.

They are made with bamboo yarn, which is very soft stuff. The downside of this yarn is that it is made up of a cluster of very thin threads (like sewing thread) that separate easily. You have to be careful not to poke your hook into the middle of the yarn. When you do, single threads get pulled and it looks very messy. Just about the only thing to do to fix it, is to pull your work out to the point where the problem is and rework it.

As before, I have to say that these were made very specifically for my tiny little hands, and you will have to be able to measure yourself and gauge it up as needed.

The Pattern
Yarn: bamboo, 2 skeins navy, 1 skein white (50 grams ea skein)
Hook: H/5 mm

Start with navy yarn, ch 30, join to form ring.
Row 1: ch 1, sc in first and in ea ch around to end, join to first st with sl st. (30 sc)
Row 2: ch 1, sc in first st and in ea st around to the end, join to first st with sl st. (30 sc)
Row 3: repeat row 2
Row 4: repeat row 2
Row 5: repeat row 2


Attatch white yarn here. Do NOT cut blue yarn. You will carry each thread up along the inner seam, just wrap the first st around it so it isn’t too loose, and you won’t be likely to snag it while wearing them.

Thumb add on: Reattach navy yarn to the 1st st you skipped for the thumb hole.
