First post here, though I've enjoyed reading about all your projects. I've been trying to find a site or a book that will tell me how to crochet lace gloves like these, as it looks like a normal grid that's magically been made to go diagonally and, try as I might (and I have), I can't work out how it's done. Searches for every possible variation on 'lace glove crochet pattern' have yielded many patterns for nice warm woolly gloves but none that I like for crochet cotton ones. I just want that stitch, really, and sites keep giving me other stitches and more exciting patterns. I'm a simple girl, I just want a simple pattern! Any help would be gratefully received.

patterns I have and can share

I have two glove patterns in my collection

One is real steam punk like...turning granny squares into fingerless hand warmers...which i love wearing while bloggign in my cold cellar home office

The other is far lacier and way beyond my skills. I could scan these both and share them, if you're truly interested.

Re: patterns I have and can share

Ooooh yes please - there aren't any copyright restrictions or anything are there, if no one's profiting financially?

I am certainly interested. I've been trying to make lace gloves since my aunt showed me my great-granny's ages ago. I've made some in cotton using other stitches but they just look like normal gloves, except they aren't warm!

there is a glove pattern in Loop-d-Loop Crochet, but I can't remember exactly what it looks like. it's definitely a mesh or filet type pattern, but i think it's denser than the one you show, and i don't know about the diagonal.

in general though, making diagonal mesh shouldn't be that difficult. make a foundation row or two of, say, 20 sc (to see if this works for you).
chain 3, skip 3, tc in next. chain 3, skip 3, tc in next across. chain whatever is needed to turn (sorry, weak on the specifics). turn.
tc in next tc (the "top" of the arch you just made), chain three, tc in the next tc, and so on.

then, just fill in the spots you want opaque with tc, like in regular filet. i think that should work.

in a quick glance at the links below, i saw my mistake (bad memory, bad!). rather than try to explain, i'll just say check out the mesh techniques below!

also, check this out:


obviously much bigger gage than you want, but the idea is there.

Re: ah-ha!

Thank you! I shall investigate as soon as I'm back from the post office. Something to look forward to!
