This is absolutely fantastic! I might have to make one at some point! Do you have a ravelry pattern page for it, as well? You should--and then add your notes on how you changed it, I bet a lot of people on ravelry would appreciate it.
I found this photo and I'm trying to recreate the cable pattern, but without much success. I think the angles are confusing my headcold-fogged brain. Is anyone any good at this/has seen this cable pattern around anywhere already charted out?
My palms tend to get sweaty if I wear fingerless gloves while typing or knitting. I'm thinking of knitting a set of fingerless gloves (with the cut off fingers, I prefer those to a straight cut off top) but only doing the back of the hand and leaving the front where the palm is open. I think the best way to do this would be to start in the round for the ribbed cuff at the bottom, then switch to just back and forth knitting for the back of the hand. I would increase on the side for the thumb, and then just cast on stitches for the thumb afterwards, and cast on more stitches at the top of the hand in order to do the fingers.
Any suggestions or comments, or perhaps a better way to do this? Or even an already existing pattern?
If you would post a pattern for these little guys, I would love you forever! I nanny for a 3-year-old, and he is ALL ABOUT THE DINOSAURS right now! Would love to make him a little army of them for Christmas!
