These gloves are the perfect thing to finish off the Amphitrite Cowl and the Amphtrite Slouch. The squishy feel and gorgeous texture of the Woven Shell stitch creates a real treat for your hands. And the lovely edging of this stitch is so very flattering. 

I discovered the Woven Shell Stitch while looking through my copy of Crochet Stitch Dictionary by Sarah Hazell. It really is a fantastic stitch guide for anyone wanting to learn more awesome crochet stitches!

In this pattern we will be using the Woven Shell Stitch. For those of you who haven’t done this stitch before I have created a tutorial. You can find it here.

Instructions

Band

With 5.5mm Hook (or the hook used to obtain gauge)

1. Ch7. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across. Turn.   – 6 st

2. Working in BLO: Ch1. Sc in 1st st and each st across. Turn.   – 6 st

Repeat row 2 until you have a total of 30 (36, 72) rows. 

Your band should be 7” (8 ½”, 10”) long x 1 ½” (1 ½”, 1 ½”) wide.  

Now we will ss the ends of the band together. 

– Turn your work as if you are going to do another row of sc, but don’t ch. 

– Fold the bottom row up so that it sits behind your top row. 

– Insert your hook through the back loop of your top row and the bottom loop of your starting chain and make a slip stitch. (See figure 1)

– Slip stitch in this manner all the way across. This is the wrong side of your band. (See figure 2)

– Turn the band right side out. (See figure 3) Do not bind off. The first round will be worked into the side of the band where your hook is. We will now be working in the round, but still turning after each round.

Repeat round 3 until you have achieved the length you would like the glove to be below your thumb. I wanted my gloves to be long, but not too long, so I worked the pattern until I had 7 rounds total (including round 1). You could make your gloves a little shorter if you like, or make them long enough to go to your elbows!  In this next round we will create the thumb holes.

8. Ch1. Sc in ch1 sp. *Sk 5 sts, 3dc in next st, ch1. Working around the 3dc you just made, work 3dc in the 2nd skipped st. Sk 1 st, sc in next ch1 sp. ** Repeat from * to ** 1 (2, 2) more times.
