I'm not the greatest pattern writer. I had to have help with the rectangle granny square to make it readable and understandable. So, if these patterns are a bit confusing, I'm sorry. I didnt ask anyone to help me with writing these out. I pretty much wrote them out as I was making them, and saved them in Word until I decided tonight to post this.
(this is the first pattern, wrote it out kind of basic)
Hdc in each sts for 9 rows
Row 10: chain 2, hdc for 5 sts, ch 2, sk 2 sts, hdc in each sts to end of row
Rows 11 to 18, hdc in each sts till you have 18 rows
Fold lengthwise and sew or crochet up the side to finish off.
(this is the second version. Basically the same as the first one, except that I changed the chain-up part from a chain-2 to a chain-1.)
Foundation Row: Chain 25
Row 1: half double crochet in 2nd chain from hook, half double crochet in each st to end of row.
Row 2: Chain 1 loosely. (you don’t really need height on this one, and just doing a loose ch-1 gives you enough height, and you dont end up with that loopy look on the ends that a ch-2 gives you sometimes) Half double crochet in each st till end of row.
Work in pattern to Row 10.
Row 10: (thumbhole row) ch 1, hdc in next 5 sts, ch 2, skip next 2 sts, hdc in next st. Hdc in each st to end of row.
Rows 11 to 18: hdc in each sts to Row 18.
Fold lengthwise and sew or slip stitch up the side to make a tube.
(Optional) You can crochet around the edge of the openings to give it a more finished look. I did that for one pair of fingerless mitts I made for my brother-in-law. I didnt care for the edging on the ends of the mitts tho)
I took pictures, but then over the summer I was a bit sick, and now dont remember which of the mitt pictures I took was which. I used the same color yarn for both pairs, and I guess now it doesnt really matter which one was made first. At least you can get a basic idea of what they looked like when I was finished.
