This listing is for a PATTERN ONLY for the Shell We Dance? Fingerless Gloves by Pony McTate.

These captivating lightweight gloves are the perfect accessory to take you from daywear to the dancefloor! Keep your wrists warm and your fingers free, with a separated thumb. Seamlessly worked in the round, they make clever use of simple stitches to bold effect.

The pattern is written in English and is a dream to work from: lots of tips and step-by-step photos throughout. One size fits most, with tips on how to adjust the sizing.

Intermediate or an adventurous Beginner (assumes knowledge of crochet basics and a degree of confidence reading patterns - but the pattern comes with lots of help).

• 4mm (UK 8/US G) crochet hook - you may wish to have a 5mm (UK 6/US H) hook handy as well in case you want to adjust your tension.
• Yarn – 4ply in 2 colours

(I used Scrumptious by Fyberspates 4-ply/sport superwash (45% silk 55% superwash merino, 365m (399 yds) per 100g (3.5oz), 14 WPI in "Glisten" (I used 90m/98yds, 24g/0.84oz) and "Seamist" (68m/74yds, 18.5g/0.65oz) - but you can substitute.)

• Scissors
• Tapestry needle for sewing in ends
• Cup of tea and a biscuit

BBdc - back bump double crochet (diagram provided)
BLO - back loop only (diagram provided)
ch - chain
dc - double crochet (US = single)
rnd/s - round/s
RS - right side
sl st - slip stitch
st/s - stitch/es
tr - treble crochet (US = double)

*... - indicates that stitches after the asterisk are repeated.
[...] - indicates that all stitches within square brackets are worked into the same stitch.

This pattern will make gloves around 18cm (7.1in) from top to bottom and around 8cm (3.1in) across when measured flat. At the widest point (the thumb opening), they will measure around 12cm (4.7in) across. The pattern is one-size only with tips on how to adjust the sizing.

* This Instant Download PDF pattern is written in UK terms and contains all the information you need, with plenty of photos and step-by-step tutorials of the fiddly bits.

* The gloves are worked in one piece from the cuff up. Woohoo! No seams! The cuff uses back loop only double crochet (UK terms) to make a lovely stretchy ribbing. The body of the gloves uses alternating rows of basic stitches worked in rounds with a slip stitch to join each round. Pattern increases make room for the thumb.

* The pattern is the same for the left and right gloves.

* You may sell finished gloves using this pattern but please credit Pony McTate @ponymctate as the designer. Don't be a plonker: you may NOT sell, copy or distribute this pattern or any part of it.

Tried the pattern, and it just wasn’t working for me. Still working with it. But this issue lies with me, not the pattern. I love the pattern.
