Fingerless Gloves pattern
This is a pattern I have made many, many times. I didn't create it myself, but took inspiration from this pattern with my own embellishments and clarifications.
Use worsted weight yarn and an H hook
sl - slip stitch
ch - chain stitch
sc - single crochet
dc - double crochet
hdc - half double crochet
1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across (8 sc), ch1 turn
sc in back loops only from here on
2: sc in each sc across (8sc), ch1 turn
3 - 23: repeat row 2
24: repeat row 2, ending with the ch1, no turn
Crochet 1sc in the end of each row, with 2 in the last sc (25sc).
slst the ends together
Embellishments: The cuff can be made longer by making the starting chain longer, from 1-1/2" - 3" without making major changes to this pattern.
1: ch 1, sc in the end of each row, slst to starting chain
2: ch1, sc in each sc, slst to starting chain
3: repeat row 2
4: ch 2, dc in each sc, slst to top of starting ch
5: ch 1, sc in each dc, slst to starting ch

10: left hand - ch 2, dc in first 5 hdc, ch3, skip 3 hdc, dc in next 18, slst to top of starting ch
right hand - ch 2, dc in first 18, ch 3, skip 3 hdc, dc in next 5, slst to top of starting ch
11: ch 1, hdc in each dc including 3 hdc in ch 3 space, slst to starting ch
12: ch 1, hdc in each hdc, slst to starting ch
Continue hdc rows until desired length is achieved.
Finish off and weave ends.
Embellishment: For edging contrast, attach contrasting yarn at cuff seam and sc in each sc all the way around, join with slst. Finish off and weave ends.
