I made these for the Ongoing Wish List Swap, and since the Delivery Confirmation shows that she received, I'm posting!  These are not something I would normally make, but I'm pretty darn proud of them.

UPDATE  More info on the hat I'm wearing is available in this Craftster post and the pattern is available in my craft journal






The yarn is Bernat Satin Solids in Mai Tai, and I knit these on size 8 needles.  I used Ysolda's Lace-up Opera Gloves pattern, but I modified it a little bit.  While I was knitting these, I realized that the pattern was written more complicated than it needed to be, and despite getting gauge and the pattern being One-Size, they were WAY too tight even on my tiny arms, so I wrote the pattern in a more accessible way, and I fixed a mistake I noticed.  Please note that I take no credit for this pattern, I just wanted to edit it a little bit.   Wink

Materials / Tools: 
   Approx 120 yards of worsted weight yarn (I used one skein of Bernat Satin to make yours)
   Approx 4 to 5 yards of ribbon (Ysolda used 1 wide, I used 3/8 wide)
   1 pair size 8 needles, 1 set size 8 DPNs
   Two stitch markers
   Scrap yarn
   Tapestry needle

Gauge: 16 sts x 24 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

Stitch Patterns:
* Starting on row 6, slip the first stitch of each row. 
Eyelet Row: sl1, k1, yo, k2tog, k to 4 sts from end, ssk, yo, k2
Thumb Shaping: k to marker, sm, m1, k to marker, m1, sm, k to end
Eyelet + Thumb Shaping: sl1, k1, yo, k2tog, k to marker, sm, m1, k to marker, m1, sm, k to 4 sts from end, ssk, yo, k2

ARM
CO 24 sts
Row 1: k all sts
Row 2: p all sts
Row 3: k2, (yo, k2tog to last 2 sts), k2
Row 4 (and all even rows): sl1, p all sts
Row 5: k across, picking up and knitting CO sts with each k stitch
Row 7: Eyelet Row
Rows 9, 11: k all sts
Repeat rows 7 12 twelve more times (13 eyelet rows), ending with a p row


HAND

Row 1: Eyelet Row
Row 2 (and all even rows): p all sts
Rows 3, 5: sl1, k2, ssk, k to last 5 sts, k2tog, k3
Row 7: Eyelet Row
Row 9 (RIGHT HAND): sl1, k3, m1, k to last 5 sts, m1, k2tog, k3
Row 9 (LEFT HAND): sl1, k2, ssk, m1, k to last 4 sts, m1, k4

THUMB SHAPING
Row 11 (RIGHT HAND): sl1, k6, pm, m1, k2, m1, pm, k to end
Row 11 (LEFT HAND): sl1, k12, pm, m1, k2, m1, pm, k to end
Row 13: Eyelet + Thumb Shaping
Rows 15, 17: Thumb Shaping
Row 19: Eyelet + Thumb Shaping
Row 21: sl1, k to marker, remove marker and place 12 thumb stitches on scrap yarn, remove marker, CO2 (back loop method), k to end
Row 23: k to end
Row 25: Eyelet Row
Row 27: k to end
BO knit-wise from WS

THUMB
Place thumb stitches onto 3 DPNs and slide CO sts above thumbhole onto end DPNs, so that two DPNs have 5 sts and the other has 4.  Beginning from right side of thumb hole, knit 5 rounds, pulling tight at CO sts.  BO purl-wise

FINISHING
Use the yarn tail on thumb to tighten up holes by CO edge.  Weave in ends, lace ribbon through eyelets.  Burning ends of ribbon or using Fray Check is recommended so ribbon doesnt unravel.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

I yearn for a pair of Ysolda's lace-up gloves, but alas, I cannot knit.  You did a great job on these.  The colour combo is great.

I don't think it would be too hard to take a wool sweater from a thrift store, felt it, and then cut it into lace up armwarmers...  No knitting required!

Congrats!! Those are really cute, thanks for the pattern!  I really like your hat, too... did you knit that or did you buy it?

I definitely knit it myself.  I designed it for the current knitting challenge (Are you afraid of the chart?) and I'm working on writing up the pattern and perfecting it before I post.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Patience!  I'll be posting all about it (including the pattern!) in the knitting challenge folder in a few days or so!

Both the hat and the armwarmers are made out of Bernat Satin (it's SO soft!).  And the hat is Fair Isle, which I'd never done before, but it's SO much easier than intarsia!

I've done that and love them but it's just not the same, you know?

I think I'll just whinge at my sister until she produces a pair for me Wink
