Simple Fingerless Gloves Pattern

I absolutely love fingerless gloves, and I love to whip up a quick and easy pair also, but I hadn't been able to find some that I really liked.  That got my mind whirling and I set out to create my own.  Others I had seen just weren't the shape that I wanted or used yarns I didn't have readily available and so on!  These are even so simple that you could certainly add anything to it to make them super cute and unique.  Why not add some appliques to the outside or a cute flower or bow at the cuff.  The possibilities are endless!  :D  So, here they are!

This pattern is not meant to be shared or resold with others in it's original or altered form.  Please direct people to this blog to get the goodness for themselves.  You are more than welcome to sell the items that you make, but please link back to this blog or my etsy shop!  :)


Simple Fingerless Gloves



Materials Needed:
• Worsted Weight Acrylic yarn of choice, I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby
• crochet hook size H (5.0 mm)

Guage is about 16 hdc = 4 inches.

This pattern is worked continuously, making it easy to follow.  It's just one simple pattern for both hands, so they are interchangeable!  Make two.


Cuff
Ch 11
Rnd 1: sc in second ch from hook and in ch across, turn (10 sts)
Rnd 2: ch 1, sc in first sc, sc in back loops only of next 8 sc, sc in last sc, turn (10 sts)
Rnd 3-24: repeat rnd 2 (10 sts)
Slst or sc the two ends together to form a cuff. Begin the next round by crocheting along the edge of the cuff to start the hand portion of the glove.
Hand
Work in the round, joining at the end of every row and continuing in the same direction. The first stitch will always be in the same stitch as the join from the previous round.

Obsessed with Nyan Cat

Have you ever heard of Nyan Cat?  Nyan Cat is a YouTube video sensation that merges a Japanese pop song with an adorably animated cartoon cat with the body of a pop-tart.  The best part is that the cat is flying through space leaving a rainbow trail behind it.  I know, it sounds crazy, but once you watch it it's like you instantly become hooked!  The video ranked number 5 on the list of most viewed YouTube videos in 2011.  I couldn't believe I hadn't seen this video sooner.  Here it is, so check it out!


I think it's by far the most adorable thing I've seen on the internet in a long time.  Once I started doing some digging, I ended up finding the Nyan Cat website, where I also found out that there are all sorts of Nyan Cat "flavors".  Basically they took the Nyan Cat idea to another level by creating holiday versions, other food varieties, and even some off the wall ones like Zombie Nyan Cat and the villainous Tac Nayn (which is Nyan Cat spelled backwards).

Now, the best part of this meme is the fan art that it has produced.  People have turned Nyan Cat into their personal plushies, paitings, jewelry, and so much more.  There are now even games available for iPhone and Android.  I was inspired by other crochet works I saw to create my own Nyan Cat scarf.  Isn't it adorable?


This was sorta my first attempt at it and I ran into a few speed bumps that I would probably change for the next one I make. I can't really tell if the fact that the eyes and legs being so big add to the charm of the scarf or if I should change that!?

I'm thinking that I might need to play around with it and see what I come up with, but I still love it regardless! I can't wait to wear it out and about tomorrow! This has of course sparked some other ideas in me that I can't wait to make, like maybe a matching hat, fingerless gloves, and of course an applique to put on just about EVERYTHING! Hehe!

Stay tuned for more Nyan Cat fun in the near future!  :D

Happy crocheting!
