Finished Item - Purple Fingerless Gloves

I was practising a new stitch last week. I got the pattern from a book that I have on crocheted dish cloths. I didn't buy the book so that I could make the dish cloths I got it so that I could learn a whole new range of patterns. I'm not very good at reading all of the patterns though (o_0) but I will get there eventually.


I was using the pattern on the left there. You can't see all of the written instructions but you can at least see the photo of what it should look like. At least I got this pattern right. There's only one problem. The patterns don't have names just numbers so I don't even know what this style is called. Although I do like how it has turned out.


Of course when I started following the pattern I had no idea what I was going to do with the finished square or in this case rectangle. As I was making it I got this idea in my head that I would love to see what they would look like as fingerless gloves.


What do you think? It doesn't look too bad does it? I have no idea what I will do with them yet. I might stash them away for the knit4charities group and send them off when I have a few more items.

You are really getting good with that crochet hook, aren't you?! ^_^ I love the gloves! And I love that stitch too. I recognize it, but it's called something different in just about every pattern that I've seen it in! LOL So, let's just call it "pretty"!

Thanks Maria :)
I'm finding that this is a good way to use up left-over yarn.

Thanks Poetess. I think pretty sums up that stitch very well :D It almost looks like a rib stitch to me.
