In addition to the obvious things that are going on right now in our crazy world,
our current weather here in Upstate New York is throwing my equilibrium off!! For the last couple of days, it has been in the 70's! So it's technically the weather's fault that I'm not prepared for the holidays creeping up so quickly! Sure, we'll go with that...

When I think of happiness in winter, I think of anything that keeps me warm and cozy. The idea for these gloves came from me wanting something fluffy, squishy and warm. I love how they came out, so I want to share them with you! I hope you love them too!
This is a beginner friendly pattern. It basically consists of single crochet and double crochet stitches. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I'll be happy to answer them.
Skill Level: Beginner
Gauge: gauge is not crucial to this pattern. You can increase or decrease the size of the glove by using a smaller or larger crochet hook
*Either a size K - 10.5/ 6.50 MM hook or a size M - 13/ 9.00 MM hook
*Any super bulky #6 yarn will work; the yarn in my pictures is Lion Brand Hometown in Tampa Spice; I love Lion Brand Hometown yarn, it's so soft and warm!
ST = stitch
CH = chain
SL ST = slip stitch
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
BLO = back loop only
FLO = front loop only
*In this pattern, the CH 1 does not count as a stitch.
*The only difference between the Right Glove and the Left Glove is found in Round 6
Starting with the cuff and working in rows,
Row 1: CH 5, and SC into the BLO of the next ST from the hook and in each ST across (4), CH 1 and turn
Row 2: SC into the BLO of each ST across (4), CH 1 and turn
Rows 3 - 16: repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 16 rows
With the right sides facing each other, fold your cuff in half, lining up the ends together, and SL ST into the BLO of each stitch of the end closest to you and into the FLO of each stitch of the end furthest from you.
Now turn the cuff inside out.
Working on the Glove, and now working in rounds,
Round 1: CH 1 and work a SC into the end of each ST of the edge of the Cuff (16 total), and SL ST into the first SC
Round 2: CH 1 and work a SC into each ST around (16), SL ST into the first SC
Round 3: CH 1 and work a DC into each ST around (16), SL ST into the first DC
Round 4: CH 1 and work a SC into each ST around (16), SL ST into the first SC
Round 5: CH 1 and work a DC into each ST around (16), SL ST into the first DC
In Round 6, we'll create the hole for the thumb.
Round 6 for the Right Glove: CH 1 and work a SC into the next 3 ST's, CH 3 and skip the next 3 ST's. This creates the hole for the thumb. Continue to work a SC into the remaining stitches around (16), SL ST into the first SC
Round 6 for the Left Glove: CH 1 and work a SC into each ST around until you have 4 stitches remaining, CH 3 and skip the next 3 ST's, SC into the last ST of the round (16), SL ST into the first SC
Round 7: CH 1 and work a DC into each ST around, including each ST of your CH 3 (16), SL ST into the first DC
Round 8: CH 1 and work a SC into each ST around (16), SL ST into the first SC
Round 9: Repeat Round 8
Tie off your yarn and weave in the ends!
