Boys Ninja Gloves

I have a hard time finding little things to make for boys so I came up with these. My son doesn’t like mittens and he isn’t thrilled about gloves so I designed these
to keep him semi-warm. He thinks they are Ninja gloves and won’t go outside without them.

They only take about an hour, if you are fast, and 2 hours if you have kids, hehehehe.

The stitch used is called Shallow single crochet, it looks like knitting and looks pretty similar to shepherds knitting.

Shallow Single Crochet: Insert hook between the 2 vertical threads of each stitch. Yo pull through, yo pull through both loops on hook.
