FLOVES (fingerless gloves)
Created By: Den Flowers
Craft: crochet
Materials: The main portion of the flove set was made in Natura Ultra-Aire, color; Twilight, dye lot; 187 50% acrylic and 50% nylon. Trim was made with a fancy fur I forget the name at least it is a recent make. The Twilight, however was made in 1981. I have other examples and try to buy Lion Brand wherever I go even the thrift stores.
Pattern Source: original:

I started making these after I seen a friend bring a more basic version, that was much shorter. I started out with a 4ply yarn, crocheted about 24-28 ch, then joined the chain. I then would chain 2 in the joined chain, and then dc in each st, finishing each row to join, and then ch 2 turn and dc the other direction. I do this because if you don't ch and turn you will have a pattern develop that will show from corner to corner if laid flat. After I make about 10 rows of the double crochet stitches, I crocheted, with a different color usually, 3 rows of the dc, except I left the end on the ch 2 seam edge unjoined, for the thumb hole. The thumb I add later. On the fourth row of the dc, I rejoin the flove barrel, I like to call it that, for atleast another 4 rows. When I finished I fed the yarn along the seam edge to the thumb opening. From there I ch1 then st in every opening I gauged about 7 of these stitches to the other side of the thumb opening, then it should be about 7 stitches coming back. Join and ch1 turn and ch1 then single stitch in each stitch around decreasing a stitch in each row for the next two or three rows. Depending on size of the flove you are trying to make, I have made over 16 now. I made a few mistakes along the way but have perfected a method that both ensures sturdy well made crafted with little tying of tails and such. Can you believe I, a man have done this? Well enjoy my work I have years more, and many more ideas.
