What are you most proud of? I was really excited at how well the color changes lined up when I made the grey/green/burgundy pair!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Crochet loosely - I tend to crochet rather snugly and that made the gloves very stiff. So I went up from the recommended D hook to an E hook and kept my tension 'casual' - I like the result much better. Also be sure to leave a long-ish tail when attaching the yarn to add the fingers. You will need that to sew up spaces that will be between the fingers.

I've been battling with this pattern for months myself. I have a completed pair, but have yet to sew on the buttons... I crochet. I don't sew. The biggest problem I have for myself is I have short fingers & the pattern just doesn't work for my hands. I'm thinking about trying it again, but just making the fingers come up to my 1st knuckle or so. :)

I made SO many pairs 'practicing' this pattern and trying to get it 'right' before I felt comfortable sending them to anyone! I really don't think you even need the buttons; I just can't imagine actually using them?? I dunno....:-)

How can I get the pattern? There is no link to the pattern, only the picture. Can you send me the pattern? sambard@yahoo.com

Help! I've made the gloves, but I am hitting some sort of brick wall with the whole finger "hood".

I'll try to help. What specifically is giving you trouble?

Can you help me with adjusting the to a bigger size? My husband wants a pair and his hands are a half size bigger than mine. Thank you for your time.

Adjusting this pattern to fit a man's big hand would be a lot; I think you'd be better off finding a man-size glove pattern and then just making the changes for the little covers on the fingers. Have you searched for any men's glove patterns yet?

Here's one pattern I found on Ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mens-afghan-stitch-gloves

Thank you for finding this for me. I tried searching for men's gloves, but the search would just return mittens or fingerless gloves. Thank you again, I truly appreciate it.

Do you sell the pattern?
