SHELLED LONG FINGERLESS GLOVES
( #Blogaday 17/365 )

I just finished working on a shelled beret, and thought I’d make a pair of long gloves as well .. and made them extra long –and on completion, my daughter just commented that the shells (which I’d added at the elbow end) looked really nice, so check out what I’ve designed. 

I have one other pair of fingerless gloves that I’ve made at https://shyamanivas.blogspot.in/2016/12/shelled-fingerless-gloves.html

Materials used : Oswal Cashmilon 4-ply acrylic yarn with a 4 mm crochet hook to

Gauge :  1 shell across x 2 shells (rows) = 1”

Stitches used :
fsc : Foundation Single Crochet : To refresh your skill on the fsc, please view this superb video by Tamara Kelly at the link  http://www.mooglyblog.com/foundation-single-crochet-fsc/

Hdc : Half Double Crochet : yo, insert hk into st ; yo (3 lps on hk), yo, draw through all 3 lps.  One hdc made.

Foundation half double crochet : A really lovely way to start a foundation row of chainless double crochet.  This unique way of starting makes your project even https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90iUfQ-_1IM

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.


Pattern instructions :

fingerless gloves

We start our glove from the elbow end and come down to the palm/fingers, and we work our pattern in rounds.  Hence after Round 1, check that the round made fits the arm where you want it to.

Round 1 : Start with 24 fdc (or multiples of 4). 
Join with a slip stitch to the 1st fdc, ensuring that you keep your chain flat.

Round 2 : first shell in the 1st dc, sk 1 dc , sc in next dc ;
*sk 1 dc, shell in next dc ; sk 1 dc, sc in next dc* ;
rep from * to * till end.  Join with a slip stitch to the 1st stitch.  (6 shells)

Round 3 : first shell in the 1st sc (between the 1st 2 shells) ,
sc in the ch-2 sp of the next shell ;
*shell in the next sc (between the next 2 shells) , sc in the ch-2 sp of the
next shell* ;
rep from * to * till end. 
Join with a slip stitch to the 1st st (which is the ch of the first shell).  (6 shells)

Round 4 : first shell in the space between the 1st 2 shells ,
sc in the ch-2 sp of the next shell ;
*shell in the next sc (between the next 2 shells) , sc in the ch-2 sp of the
next shell* ;
rep from * to * till end. 
Join with a slip stitch to the 1st st (which is the ch of the first shell).  (6 shells)

Change to 4 mm crochet hook and rep Round 4 till you have a length of 10.5” (or the length you want from your elbow to the base of your thumb)

Next Round : Thumb opening : ch 2, sc in the next ch-2 sp
(sp between next shell) ; shell in the next 5 shells ;
ch 5, sc in the next sc (where you started with your ch-2)
Note : This ch-5 is the opening for your thumb.  Pop your thumb in and see if it works, else pl add/decrease opening.

Last Round : first shell in the 1st sc, sc in the ch-2 sp of the next shell :
*shell in the next sc, sc in the next ch-2 sp* ,
rep from * to* 5 times. 
Join with a slip stitch to the 1st shell.  Fasten off.  Weave in ends.
Note : Slip your lovely glove onto your hand just before you fasten off.. see if you are happy with the length, else do one more round of the last round before you fasten off.
