Most of my life, I have been crocheting like my grandmother, by the seat of my pants. If it works, I do it. If I think a pattern would be better suited to my way of thinking, I do it. Like most good ideas, this glove pattern was seeded by a couple of great ideas that have flashed by my face lately. I thought they turned out okay,but I will be tweaking on the pattern as time allows... something I have very little of
these days It's spring, okay, so it's fall, and what better way to take in those fresh mornings than with a blooming pair of fingerless gloves. This experiment with pattern design began with a circle of daisy motifs, followed by two rows of daisy
pattern and then a modified lace. It's not too tough and really makes for a cute pair of fingerless gloves.
Daisy motif is 1.25 inches.
Lace pattern repeat of 3 rows deep
and 6 stitches is also 1.25 inches.

I have been a clothing designer and weaver for many many years. I had to sell my loom and get a real job. However, when one of my crochet patterns was published in Interweave Crochet Accessories Magazine, I decided... what the heck I can do this and am currently working on a bevy of beautiful Santa hats and booties for taking those Christmas photos of your children. Stay tuned.
