So, that's my title, but what I'm trying to say is; can anyone tell me the directions to get the knit in this picture?  I am an intermediate-level knitter, and I bought these fingerless gloves from a second hand store years ago.  I apologize for the crappiness of the pics; the second one is on the palm, and it's stretched out a bit, which might help in identifying the pattern.






 I REALLY want to recreate these gloves, and I've worked out that it has picot edging, and how to do the thumbhole, but I am not advanced enough to know how to get a texture from looking at it.  If anyone could help me I would be so grateful!! I can post a tutorial if they turn out so everyone can enjoy these adorable gloves!  Thanks a million fellow craftsters!

First I had a plate and no serviette.  Now I have a serviette and no plate and I need more jam.

I kept your post in mind while I was browsing knitting patterns this evening. I'm fairly new to knitting myself, but have seen plenty of leaf lace projects that might help you with ideas to make that exact pattern.

This one in particular caught my eye as a pretty good start.
I would definitely just browse knitting patterns until you found some good ideas to draft your own.
Maybe even check out a stitch encyclopedia... I looked through mine and couldn't find anything quite like it, but there were some lovely ones that you may be able to substitute.
Good luck! I'd love to see a pattern when you're done!

It looks like some sort of lacy leaf pattern, the closest I could find online was this:
