Crocheted Fingerless Gloves

Time for another crochet pattern. These fingerless gloves are based on this pattern. My changes are below, and it a super easy pattern with only 2 skeins of yarn needed. I figured that with temperatures in the 20's and 30's here right now, it's the right time for another pair of gloves.

Sarah, the woman that created the original pattern, has a great helpful hint: "I have found it easier after attaching yarn for the palm and fingers to weave in the yarn ends as you go so you don't have to turn the mitten inside out and do it after it's finished." If you are able to do this, you probably won't need a yarn needle.

1 skein of Lion Brand Yarn Vanna's Choice in Dusty Blue (#108)
1 skein of Premier Yarns Mega Brushed in Lavender Ice (#51-212)
assorted leftover eyelash type yarn in silver
I sized crochet hook
yarn needle

ROWS 3 - 29: Same as Row 2

Depending on your tension, the cuff should be about 17 1/2 cm long.

Ch 1, 1 sc at the base of ch 1, 1 sc at the end of each row of ribbing, ss to join to the first sc, ch 1, turn (30 sc) After you turn, always skip the ss where you joined on previous RND and begin your work in the first sc. When finished with the second row, fasten off the yarn.
