I found the pattern on Ralvelry and really liked the cuff creation method. It's alternating front and back post half double crochet stitches. This forms a cuff look with a very sturdy base. I didn't make the little thumb portion and I regret it. Maybe on the next pair because there will definitely another pair in a yarn I bought at Purl Soho. This one is colorful and I like it, but I admit to it being a lesser brand. I had never made an item to wear (that needed a good fit) and I didn't want to experiment with really good, pricey yarn.
I kept busy on the train ride to New York City last fall working on these and listening to books. Our public library has a fabulous selection of PlayAway books, which is awesome since I don't own an E-reader.
These gloves fit wonderfully even though one is slightly looser than the other. That's what I get for crocheting on the midnight train!
