I haven't ever posted a pattern before (and this pattern isn't tested), so tell me if you have any questions.

It's kind of cold here right now, and (because I play the piano) I wanted to make me some fingerless gloves. So I made these, and it was so fun that I'm going to see if I can make up another design!

Swan Lake Fingerless Gloves
Yarn Needed:
1 skein white worsted weight yarn or color of choice (MC). I used a fuzzy, sort of sparkly yarn (without a label) that I had laying around. I think this would take 1-2 ounces.
Small amount Red Heart Super Saver in Aspen or complimentary color of choice. (CC)
Hook Size:
I used H, but my hands are not big, and it took just a teeny weeny bit of wiggling to get them on, so you might want to use a size I or J. Or, I suppose, you could make them smaller by using sport weight yarn and a smaller hook.
Ch. 27, join.
Rnd 1. ch 1, sc around, join.
Rnd 2. ch 1, sc around in BL only, join in BL of first st.
Rnds 3-7. Rep Rnd 2.
Rnd 8. sl st in BL next 3 sts, ch 3, crtrc around, skip last 2 sc, ch 5, join in top of ch3.
Rnd 9. ch 1, sc in BL only around, sc over chain sts, join in BL of first st.
Rnds 10-13. Rep Rnd 2.
Rnd 11. ch 1, * sc in BL of next st, sc in FL of next st* around.
Rnds 12-16. Rep Rnd 11. FO.
Attach CC in join, ch 1. Sc in each st around, join.
Next rnd: *ch 1, sl st* around, join. FO
Attach CC in top join, ch 1. Sc in each st around, join. FO.
Thumb:
Attach MC in thumb hole, ch 1. Make 18 sc around, join. When you come to the crtc, make 1 sc in the first end, then sc through the center of both trc, then make 1 sc in the other end.
Next rnd: Sc around, join. FO.
Special Stiches:
crtrc (Crossed TReble Crochet):
*skip next st, treble crochet in next st, treble crochet in next st*
(go BEHIND the treble crochet already made when you treble crochet in the skipped st)

Coming Soon: Another ballet-themed pattern for fingerless gloves! I'm still trying to decide between Cinderella or The Nutcracker.

Also, I am VERY VERY sorry that there is no picture. I haven't been in crochetville very long, and I haven't got that set up yet. Maybe someone who makes a pair could post a picture somewhere? :hook

I don't have a photo, but I could take one. The problem is that I have no way of getting it on the internet. However, my sister got a digital camera for her birthday, so maybe that would help.

I'm working on Cinderella fingies at the moment. I think Petrouchka will be next (I could use clown colors for that...stripes, maybe?).

I'm actually kind of combining this and the cinderella fingerless gloves pattern. Very well written, and I like how it looks! Nice thumbhole, too.

I actually added about 10 ch before joining in the round, since I'm a guy and I have manly, fat hands. :P

Once I've got two done, I'll post them. I'm about halfway finished with one, and it's only been a couple hours of work!

I just have to say make sure you don't make the second glove tighter than the first one! That always happens to me, although it hasn't caused any huge problems yet.
