Rockin' Crochet Fingerless Gloves
The look of knit, with the speed of crochet

Advanced Beginner.
As long as you can read a pattern, and single crochet, you can make these gloves.

YARN: Universal Yarn inc. Classic Shades, or any nice, medium worsted weight. Classic Shades makes the perfect striped pattern.
HOOK: G size

Here we go!

Chain 8

Row 1 :  Single Crochet in second chain from hook.  Then Single Crochet across row.  Chain 1, this will be your turning chain.  Turn your work.

Repeat row one until piece measures  7 inches, or fits nicely around your wrist. End your row.

Fold the piece end to end (first row to last row) and single crochet together, it's o.k. if you have a seam, you will be turning them
right side out when you are finished. Very cool, you now have your cuff.

Along top edge,  pick up and Single Crochet around your cuff, number of stitches depends on how big your cuff is.
Place a  marker at the start of the round if you like, this does help when your gloves get longer. Make sure you move your marker up with every row.

Continue to single crochet  around until the entire piece (cuff included) measures  5 inches, or measure on your hand from the
cuff to the base of your thumb. Have fun with these, you can totally make them yours.

Single Crochet until you are four stitches before your marker.  Now with stitch still on your hook, insert  your hook into the fourth 
stitch after your marker and make a slip stitch.  This will create a hole for your thumb.  Continue to Single crochet  around the 
hand portion of the glove until the entire piece, including your cuff, measures 7 inches or fits your hand the way you like.  Finish off and weave in the ends. Turn glove inside out to hide seam, if you wish.

O.K. you've done it! Now repeat for your second glove.
