Do you think they would be something that a new knitter would be able to accomplish? Hmmm, I think I should commission a pair instead. Methinks they are above my knitting capabilities; still at the scarf and kitchen cloth stage.

I believe in you!  If you take it one stitch at a time, it's not really that complicated.  It depends on how adventurous (and patient!) you're feeling... Hm, in the interest of not being hunted down by an angry knitter for bad advice, I say take a couple of colors of yarn (any kind) and try knitting some vertical stripes or the palm pattern as a trial.


In your pattern, I noticed that you weave in your ends 10 to 15 stitches and start a new yarn so you overlap 10 stitches.  This is more than I've seen from other patterns and discussions, and personally, I feel more secure overlapping more.  Did you do this because of the type of yarn you were using in the gloves or is this something you do all the time?

I saw this tutorial a while ago, and it seemed to be a good way to save myself some time, because I hate weaving in ends.  Now, if I possibly can, this is the only way I do it for any project.  Plus, by adding the new colors at the end of the previous row, there aren't any holes at the join. 

I'm crazy careful with ends.  I try not to tie knots, so I like the extra security of more weaving.  It's a personal choice, I think.  Palette will felt itself a little as it's worn, securing the yarn tails even more, so I guess I didn't really need to be so careful, but....  Tongue

i am a newbie and still trying to understand how to navigate and see stuff. like I'm lost! where is the pic of the fingerless gloves?

Under the last post on the page, there are page numbers to jump forward or backwards.  The pictures are on the first page.  Hope that helps!  Smiley

Oh, name-calling amongst colours:  when will they learn?

Seriously though, these are really gorgeous; I must make myself a pair!

Hello jagger! I don't see the picture(s) or the instructions. Can somebody put them back up? CailynDragon said to jump to page one but this is page one! Would love to make something that sounds so pretty! Thanks. Have a good one.

Thanks for posting this link.  It's exactly what I needed, since I also hate weaving in ends.  Very helpful in illustrating what to do.  Cheesy

I'm not sure...for me, that post is on page 7.  Are you using the 'new' icon to view this thread, cuz that would take you straight to the new posts, skipping the original.  Just above or below the thread, there should be all the page numbers.  Try clicking on #1.

oh my gosh girl, they are super! funny thing, I frogged a sweater with a snowflake motif and just before I tore it all the way, I thought, "let me go ahead and put this pattern down on paper". I'm glad I did 'cause its good to preserve such pretty things, am I right! Thank You so much for sharing! Oh, by the way I did a search for your gloves and the pattern was a PDF. No wonder I couldn't find it, duhh! I'm learning my way around, I'm learning! (think I read somewhere, "search before you post"! ooopps)
Again thanks for sharing. beautiful.
