Crochet Driving Gloves

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

14 sc = 4 in. (10 cm)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Crochet Driving Gloves Reviewed by Mochi MOchi on 2013-09-22 *
I really like these gloves, but this pattern is a nightmare. I can read patterns but it seem like there are some random rows and sts that shouldn't be there. I'm going to keep trying to create something that looks like a glove... Wish me luck people.
