Hi, I have tried to make Knitty's Urban Rustic once, and failed miserably... I have seen questions here about the crochet cast on- I didn't have any trouble on that one, but I found that as I kept knitting the gloves, the first finger I knit connected akwardly to the rest of the fingers...
  I'm not sure how else to explain, except to say that I finished 75% of one glove, only to find that it twisted in a strange spiral- like fashion, and confused the daylights out of me  Tongue
  If anyone has some insight into what I did wrong, please let me know!
Thanks Wink

I haven't looked at the pattern or the gloves, but are you by chance knitting in the round on dpn's?  Because there is a right way and a wrong way to join the stitches to knit in the round for the first row.  The right way and you've got something that looks like the pic with the pattern.  The wrong way and you've got something that's good most of the way around but twisted at some point.  There's nothing you can do to fix it except frog back to where you joined and start over.  Unfortunately, I know this from experience.  Lots and lots of frogging in my dpn past Sad

I can't really explain how you're supposed to do it, though.  I can't figure out how to word it properly.  So hopefully, if this is your problem, someone else here can explain it.  Knittinghelp.com may also have a vid on knitting in the round that you could watch. 

I hope this helped a little and someone else can pick up where I left off!

Thanks for your advice starlight Smiley Unfortunately the pattern isn't worked in the round.  I think I will just have to take another stab at it- very slowly this time  Grin

Okay, so after a second (or third?) try, I now finally understand the problem...I was trying to knit with my denise circulars, so I was confused as to which end I was starting on- the pattern calls for #9 straights, so i'll just have to find someone from whom i can borrow some-its not a size i use often!
  Thanks everyone for you help!!
