GAUGE NOTE: This pattern fits most people because it stretches, however, to get a more custom fit, measure around the thickest part of your wrist/arm where you would like your cast on row to fall, and then cast on the number of stitches needed to equal your measurement. If this number of stitches is odd, you will need to add one more stitch to make it even.

THESE FINGERLESS GLOVES/MITTS CAN BE MADE EXACTLY AS SHOWN OR YOU MAY ADD LENGTH TO THE ARM BY ADDINGA FEW MORE ROWS AT HE BEGINNING BEFORE STARTING YOUR SHELL PATTERN. THE INSTRUCTIONS WITHIN THIS PATTERN ARE FOR THE REGULAR LENGTH PICTURED THROUGHOUT THE PATTERN.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Foundation chain:
*Chain 30 stitches.
*Being careful not to twist the chain, join the beginning and end by slip stitching them together.
*Place marker to indicate beginning of the round.

Rounds 1 & 2: Hdc all 30 stitches. When you reach the end of the round, slip stitch into the last stitch on the previous row, closing the circle again. You will always end with a slip stich at the end of each round to close the circle. (TIP: if you want a more relaxed stretchy fit, double crochet these two rounds)

BEGIN SHELL PATTERN:

Round 3: Shell into the first stitch [2Dc, Ch 1, 2Dc] ch 3, wrap yarn around hook- skip the next 4 stitches and shell stitch into the 5th stitch. Repeat across entire round. Slip stitch to close round. You will have a total of 6 shells in the round.
Round 4, Chain 5, wrap yarn around the hook, [2Dc, Ch 1, 2Dc] into the chain space between the shells. Repeat across entire round until you reach the last chain space. Instead of working a full shell pattern here, you will do 3/4th of it- which is [2Dc, Ch1,1Dc}, then Slip stitch to close round. You will now have 6 shells in this round as well.

Round 5: Repeat Round 3 except in the first chain space, you will start your shell pattern. After last shell, chain 3 and then slip stitch.

Round 6: Repeat Round 4.

NOTE: [Repeat Rounds 5-6 until you have the length of mitt you want, which should reach up to the beginning of your hand- half way to your thumb.]

THUMB OPENING:

Round 1: Hdc 30 stitches evenly across the entire round and then slip stitch closing off the circle again.

Round 2: Hdc entire row.

Round 3: Hdc entire row until you get to the area that contains the last shell column. You will now chain the number of stitches needed to fit the space of your thumb so that your thumb has enough room to fit through the fingerless gloves. (My chain amount was 8 stitches.) Once you chain your amount of stitches to fit your thumb space, connect the chain with the first Hdc stitch of the previous row by slip stitching into it.

Round 4: Hdc entire row, which also now includes your “bridge” chain that will rest above your thumb. NOTE: [My stitch count has now increased to 38 since I began with 30 stitches in the round and added 8 more stitches for my thumb area.]

Round 5-­‐end: Continue to Hdc each row until you reach the length needed to cover your hands until it reaches the place where your fingers are peeking though. You can leave more of your fingers out or enclose them a bit more. It is fully customizable depending on how long you want this area to be. When finished, leave a medium size tail, cut the yarn, and weave in the tail neatly.

Now repeat entire the process for the other fingerless glove/mitt.

You can now drive warmly or sit and drink your favorite warm drink while looking stylish for this fall. This pattern featured a special color scheme of this fall’s fashion colors of: plum, burnt orange, aqua marine blue, yellow-­‐sea-­‐green and mahogany.
