Okay, I want to knit these for a Christmas present.

 The problem is, I am already confused about the going back and forth at the cuff part. I need some people to knit these awesome gloves with me! I couldn't find any finished ones online....WEIRD. Let me know if we can help each other out and knit a whole bunch of these babies!

I was just wondering what you're confused about with the back and forth knitting. I knit a pair of mittens that uses the same method, so I think I know what you're talking about. If not, you can just ignore this. (:

When you first cast on to make the gloves, you'll be working on straight needles. You'll do the entire cuff on straight needles working "back and forth" (right side and wrong side), just like you would when knitting something like a scarf. After you finish with the cuff, you'll switch the project onto double pointed needles and start knitting in the round. When the entire project is finished, you'll seam up the cuff and be finished! I hope this helps you understand what the pattern means.

Beginning with knitting flat helps prevent joining the round with twisted sts (only way to fix that is by frogging). Smiley

Thanks, I get it now! I thought it might be that simple, but I am scared to spend time thinking I am doing it right, just to find out that I made a mistake... Yay I shall cast on tomorrow! I must hide the knitting from my roommate though since they are for her! Could be tricky...

There's a few finished pair on Ravelry. The designer mentions that Knitty edited the pattern pretty heavily, and that if you'd like the original version you can email her for it. The unedited version would probably be easier to follow.
