I've been trying for two days to make these gloves. I can't figure out the pattern at all. It's far too wordy for my liking. Even my grandmother, who's been crocheting for longer than I've been alive (30 years) can't figure out what it's talking about. Does anyone know where to find a simpler pattern than this one? I really need these gloves for work.

Hi there, Is there something specific that you find confusing? I'd love to help! I also suggest contacting Red Heart directly since they created the pattern. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

ound 19: Ch 2, esc in next 38 sts, esc into the post of the last esc made, place a marker in this st (counts as a ch-2) round complete. How i work this i couldn't get it.

awesome i am going to have to try to make these but does anyone know what yarn over means is it double crocheting or what

In case you still need to know, yarn over is not the same thing as double crocheting. Yarn over means to bring the yarn which leads directly to the skein you are working from over the hook. It is not technically a stitch, but it is what you need to do before you create the next stitch. The yarn over creates a loop on your hook in addition to the loop(s) already there. Directions following the yarn over direction tell you what to do next.

these colorful texting gloves are just what my teenage grandaughters have been asking for. however they are crochet and I am a knitter. Please Please is there a knitted version

There should be, my mum-in-law has been making them for years. She may have adapted a full glove though, and just stopped at the knuckles.
