How to make graphed Finger less gloves or Wristers

Graphed WristersHave you ever wondered how to make those adorable graphed wristers you see everywhere?  Wonder no more!  I have a pattern for you today that will combine a previous pattern I released with Cre8tion Crochet (Click HERE to go to the "unisex Basic Fingerless gloves" on the Cre8tion Crochet Blog), and teach you how to insert a 16 x 16 ST graph with adorable results!  I will even give you many links at the end on some GREAT designs that are published with graphs that size (though you may need to turn them 90 degrees.  ;)

STITCH GUIDE
ch(s) - chain(s), sc - single crochet, st(s) - stitch(es),  BLO - back loop only, slst - slip stitch, back ridge - note this is a loop created on the back of the beginning chain

PLEASE STOP AND READ NOTES THOROUGHLY.  ALSO, SAVE YOURSELF TIME; DO A GAUGE SWATCH
NOTES -
1) 1st ST in same ST as turning ST, (for example when you sl st to the end of the row, you will ch 1, then when you turn you will begin in the very last sl st made)
2) Beginning CH never counts as a stitch
3) Row 1 is worked in the back ridge of the beginning chain
4) Rows 2 through the end are worked in the BLO only
5) Please remember that proper etiquette is for gloves, nails, rings, watches, and braclets to be easily read by the person you show them to NOT yourself.  There fore, the graph may feel upsidedown and backwards, but it is not.
