Introduction: How to Crochet Awesome Black Suit Spiderman Fingerless Gloves

We can all agree that Spiderman is cool, but Spiderman in his symbiote suit? Epic. So when I started making Iron Man (Ala Louie's Loops), and Captain America (My own design, but like the goof I am I didn't take any pictures) fingerless gloves to give as birthday presents, my younger brother challenged me to make him a pair of Black Suit Spiderman gloves. and now I shall share how you (yes you!) can make a pair of your very own! After much adjustment, fiddling, wailing, gnashing of teeth, etc. I managed to create a pattern that is easily adjusted for different sized hands. The ones pictured are boys size, but I have also made average women's, and large men's gloves, all using the same basic formula.I will be using a different colored yarn to illustrate, because the bright blue will show up better in pictures. Enjoy!

Step 1: Supplies

1 Skein Black Cotton yarn (unless you have really large hands, in which case you may need 2) 
White cotton yarn
Size I Crochet hook
Yarn needle

Step 2: Making the Cuff

Ch 11
sc across (10 sc)
*Working in the back loops only, sc across (10 sc)
Repeat from * until desired length is reached 

Step 3: Putting the Cuff Ends Together

Pull loop through first ch made, sc 1 in
back loop of sc
Pull loop through next ch and continue
pattern to end. 

Do not cut!

Step 4: Body of the Glove

The following is worked in a continuous round:
Row 1:ch 1 sc in each st along the edge of the cuff
Row:2 *sc 4, 2 sc in next st repeat from * around
Round 3- 11 sc in each st around
To make thumb opening: Ch 4, skip 7 st, continue with sc around 4 more rounds.
Final round, sl st around
Cast off 

Now sit back and admire you handywork, then make another one! (I'd recommend at this point popping in a favorite movie/TV show to keep you entertained while working on this would be a good idea. Personally I watched some Darkwing Duck while working on this Instructable :D )

Step 5: The Spider

To make the body ch 4 make cluster 1tr and 1dc together 
Chain 3 slip stitch in first chain made to form head
Cast off
Weave ends in
With white sewing thread whipstitch body to glove
I was not able to document the making of legs so I hope I have explained it well in the photo. I recommend finding an image for reference.

Step 6: Go Swing on Some Webs!

Ok, don't actually try to swing on webs. Please... I don't want that on my conscience. Plus, it's highly likely to be painful for you. But you will look awesome and all your friends will be jealous of  your gloves, and they will be amazed you made them yourself. 

So... waddya think of my very first Instructable? Please feel free to leave any comments/questions below! Have a great day!
