This is my newest creation (well- the newest one I've gotten around to posting). They are bright pink fingerless gloves made from some merino I bought in Italy on vacation. I've been too nervous to use it before now, seeing as I'm used to cheap acrylic yarn, but I decided to go ahead since they're for a friend. I feel a little silly giving them to her now (her birthday is in July), but I figure she can use them later when its not 95 degrees and 100% humidity.
Anyway, I made the pattern up and if anyone wants it, let me know. They were pretty simple to make, as the only semi-difficult part was figuring out how to make the increases.


Thanks for looking!
[edit] So in an attempt (which I think worked quite well) to make these more interesting, I decided to use duplicate stitch to create a diamond pattern with small amounts of the same yarn in different colors. Here is the finished project I gave my friend.


[edit]
Here's my attempt at a pattern. I've never written a pattern for another person before, so let me know if its missing something. Also I made this to fit my wrists (6 1/4 in. diameter) and my hands (7 1/2 in. diameter), so you may want to measure and resize if necessary. My hands are also very long, so you could shorten the stockinette if you need to.

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

I've got gloves that are like those but much longer. I think they come up to my elbow..... I call them my computer gloves b/c I can still type and stuff and they keep me warm!

I just posted the modified version of these gloves. I decided it would be easier than making a new post. Enjoy!
