Crochet Glove WIP

A guy at work has asked me to crochet him some gloves.  This is because he struggles to find gloves in the shops that fit him due to the fact, as he puts it, he has "short wide-ass hands".

I'll be honest, I didn't really want to make them as I had no idea what I was doing and didn't find the idea particularly inspiring.  But... I felt bad for him and his poor cold hands, so I got guilted into starting!  I made no promises it would work out, but I thought I'd give it a go...



This has been ongoing since around October - I started a finger, ripped it back, started again, and had some to-ing and fro-ing bringing them into work to check they fit ok.  (Of course there was the big gap when I was working on the advent calendar and couldn't possibly focus on anything else!)

Before Christmas I got to the point above where I think for the first time the poor guy thought he may just end up with a pair of gloves after all!

I think it's time I got back to the hook to see if I can actually do this and produce gloves that fit him.  I guess he's just lucky it's been a mild winter!  But it would still be helpful if I manage to finish them before summer...

    1. Oh, I know! The fingers were the big trouble!! I started off saying I could do fingerless, but they don't really cut it when you need to keep your whole hand warm! Yeah, should've gone with mittens! xx

  5. I was trying to get my head around how you made these - start at the top of one finger, then ... magic. Oh no wait, maybe you crocheted all the fingers individually and then crocheted them together. Surely you're over the worst of it Miles! Think of the poor man's hands! :P

    Your talent knows no bounds. Cannot wait to see the finished pair! xx

    1. It was a mission to work out how to do it, and it might not be the best way... but yes, I did the fingers first. Then I started on the hand bit, crocheting the fingers on as I go... tricky! Just trying to shape down to the wrist now... I hope they work out! xx
