1) As you work the fingers, they tend to loosen up; however, if you still feel they are two tight, you can add stitches to row 16 and divide the extra stitches between the fingers when making the holes. Or you can use a larger hook for row 16 to loosen up the stitches. To get the proper finger placement, try on the gloves and determine where the fingers should be on the front of the glove. Then find the corresponding stitch on the back of the glove and mark the stitches. Feel free to move the stitches over if you need to.

2) Of course, you can crochet your gloves in stripes as a matching pair, if you don’t care for “mismatched” gloves. You can also crochet them all one colour if you dislike changing colours. Add onto your beginning chain, if you prefer a longer cuff. For fingerless gloves, crochet as directed but crochet one or two rows onto each finger hole.

These gloves were made to match The Old-School Oxford Scarf. I didn’t plan to write a pattern, but I got a few requests to do so. If you have any problems with the pattern, please feel free to contact me.

ETA: a crafter suggested that you carry the previous color instead of finishing off after each section. I think it is a wonderful suggestion. No weaving in ends!
