Do you think they would be something that a new knitter would be able to accomplish? Hmmm, I think I should commission a pair instead. Methinks they are above my knitting capabilities; still at the scarf and kitchen cloth stage.
I believe in you! If you take it one stitch at a time, it's not really that complicated. It depends on how adventurous (and patient!) you're feeling... Hm, in the interest of not being hunted down by an angry knitter for bad advice, I say take a couple of colors of yarn (any kind) and try knitting some vertical stripes or the palm pattern as a trial.
In your pattern, I noticed that you weave in your ends 10 to 15 stitches and start a new yarn so you overlap 10 stitches. This is more than I've seen from other patterns and discussions, and personally, I feel more secure overlapping more. Did you do this because of the type of yarn you were using in the gloves or is this something you do all the time?
I saw this tutorial
a while ago, and it seemed to be a good way to save myself some time, because I hate weaving in ends. Now, if I possibly can, this is the only way I do it for any project. Plus, by adding the new colors at the end of the previous row, there aren't any holes at the join.
I'm crazy careful with ends. I try not to tie knots, so I like the extra security of more weaving. It's a personal choice, I think. Palette will felt itself a little as it's worn, securing the yarn tails even more, so I guess I didn't really need to be so careful, but....
i am a newbie and still trying to understand how to navigate and see stuff. like I'm lost! where is the pic of the fingerless gloves?
