Hi, KPers. I'm so excited about these! I need a gift for my DIL whose BD is on Sunday and you know there is no time to make anything. I got this football sized ball of yarn at a thrift store recently for $1.99 and thought I'd make her some simple fingerless gloves. Talk about simple!! So here's how: Take a size K hook, chain 17 sts, join, sc one round. Then dec 1 on the second row and just keep doing sc until you reach where you want the thumb hole to be. Do not chain 1 at the beginning of a round or anything; just keep doing sc. When you get to the thumb part, slip 2 sts and sc back to that point. Ch 2 and attach over (above??) the 2 slipped stitches and just go back to the single crochets until the top reaches as high as you want to the knuckle part of your hand. I am so happy with how these turned out! I think the yarn is actually a Bernat Baby Blanket yarn, don't know for sure. It's like a chenille super thick yarn. Give this a try....total time to make it....1 hour complete (and that counts ripping some out because I was trying to do a pattern.) The plain single crochets work up much nicer than a pattern with this bulky yarn. I'm excited. And I have more than enough yarn to make maybe two more pair of these. Hope someone can use this. Thanks and Happy Needling. jberg
$1.99 football sized blanket? yarn
turned into these! (no, I don't have green hands)

Ooo lovely. Hope the DIL
Thank you! Those are wonderful and look very warm - I think I will make some of these for my northern GDs.
They should keep her hands nice and warm.
Those are so nice ! Thank you for sharing. 🌷
So pretty and they look warm.
Looks good and thanks for sharing your pattern
That looks exactly like the yarn I used to make mine, but I used blue. I also made a neck gaiter, but one of the gargoyles...I mean cats decided it was a very comfy bed. Despite both cats each having two actual cat beds of their own. When will I learn with cats what's yours is theirs! lol
How very clever of you, and they look so cozy and warm! Thanks for sharing your pattern with us :) Lynn
very nice thank you for posting I may try them
