A7 has been asking me to make her a pair of fingerless gloves since I made mine back before Christmas. I finished hers up right after Christmas and they really turned out cute. Each glove worked up in about an hour.
You'll need two skeins of yarn, a size H crochet hook, and a yarn needle.
Color A = purple
Color B = pink
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
fpdc = front post double crochet
bpdc = back post double crochet
picot = *sc, ch 1, sc* in same stitch
Starting with Color A ch 22.
(I would stop here and measure accordingly. Everyone's hands are going to be slightly different. Basically, what you have chained should wrap around the width of your child's 4 fingers. This glove will be worked from the top down to the wrist, leaving a hole open for the thumb.)
Join with sl st into 1st ch.
Row 1: ch 1. sc in each ch around. Join.
Row 2-11: ch 1. sc in each sc around. Join.

Row 21: ch 2. dc in each sc around. Join.
Row 22: Switch to color B. ch 2. *fpdc, bpdc* around. Join.
Row 23-25: Alternating between Color A and B each row, repeat Row 22. Tie off on last round.
