Getting Hooked. The only change was that I made the cuffs a little longer, because Bree said her stepmother has a tattoo on one of her wrists that she likes to keep covered at work.
The second pattern I used was I just made up as I went, and I used the pattern at Getting Hooked as my basis.
Row 2: sc in first sc, bpsc in the other 9 sc across, ch1, turn (11 sc)
Rows 3- 32: repeat row 2 (32 rows total) be sure to regular sc in first st, and bpsc in the other, this will give a ridged look.
The rest of the glove is worked in rounds, unless otherwise specified.
Row 1: Attach the yarn with a sl st to either end of the cuff, ch 1, sc in same spot sl st was made, sc evenly around cuff for a total of 32 sc, join with sl st to first sc.
Rows 2-5: ch2 (counts as 1st dc), dc in same st as slst, work 1 dc in each stitch around and secure with a slip stitch. You can lengthen or shorten the glove at this point, if you have a smaller hand do not make as many rounds, if you want your glove to cover more of your wrist and forearms you can add more rounds.
Row 6: beginning of thumb opening: ch2 (counts as 1st dc), dc in same st as sl st, work 1 dc in each stitch around, skipping the last 4 stitches in the previous row. Turn the glove and work the next row in the opposite direction.
Row 9: closing the thumb opening: ch2 (counts as 1st dc), dc in same st as slst, work 1 dc in each stitch around. Chain 4 across the opening and secure with a slip stitch.
Bree was really happy with these gloves and she knew her stepmom would be also.
Right now, it's almost Christmas and I feel like opening a gift early tonight. Merry Christmas, everyone!
