Gray Typing Gloves by SadDaysCrochet Gray Typing Gloves by SadDaysCrochet
The heating went out at my dad's work, so I made him some fingerless gloves so he can type without freezing his fingers off!

I picked a nice, simple but attractive stitch from my rapidly increasing stitch vocabulary. I'm trying to do a new stitch on every piece of clothing I make!

My head's been hurting a lot lately, and when my head hurts too much to do amigurumi I make clothes, apparently? I have a series of hats and gloves I'll upload gradually to fill the time before I finish the comics, animations, tutorials, patterns, and other things I am working on.

I love using new stitches, a recent favourite of mine is the triple (or treble depending) stitch. Holy mother of god its a tall stitch. I love the back stitch post the most, however, the little raised ridge is super sexy on a nice scarf or finish on a hat/cuff.

What were some of the stitches you used for these?! It looks knit!

Well I picked up this incredible volume at the second hand book store: [link] and as the description says, I am determined to try all 500 of those stitches at least once. I've gotten through all the component stitches (like singles and triples and back post stitch) and have been working through the pattern stitches. My sampler is about 3 feet tall now, and I've hardly scratched the surface. :P I feel like my understanding of crochet has opened up enormously since I've started! I've even invented my own stitch... Which I will publish a tutorial for eventually. :D

These gloves are pattern #44 (the book doesn't give them names), which is alternating double crochet for two rows (wish I'd done back post double crochet now, because having ridges would have made these even better!), then chains of triplets over two stitch gaps for three rows that connect at the center chain? It's hard to describe patterns without crochet code, and I don't think there's a good way of typing crochet code out...

Making person-sized gloves with fingers I suddenly incredibly easy when you've been making doll-sized hands. :D
