Hello -

I just bought a few balls of worsted weight yarn to make fingerless gloves for my boyfriend. Except
I should've looked at some patterns first. Everything I've found seems to use sock yarn!

Does anybody know of any patterns I might have missed? I'm looking for a pattern for "Man Hands." hehe.

Knitty's Cigar pattern is knitted in light worsted. Just crop the two fully-gloved fingers and you'll have fingerless gloves.

There's a book out by Ann Budd I believe (The Knitter's Book of Handy patterns) which has some standard patterns (basic sweaters, hats, socks, scarves, etc.).  The book is set up for you to find your gauge and then use the corresponding set of numbers, so it can be used for all types of yarns.  I'm not sure if I explained that well but basically, you knit up a swatch with whatever you want to use and then just look at the charts given to "make up" a suitable pattern.  They do all the "knitter's math" for you.

The format looks complicated but it's actually REALLY simple and it's a very versatile book since you can use it to get a pattern for basically any yarn weight or regardless of if you knit tightly or loosely.  They have a glove pattern (in child, woman and man sizes) that you could use and just bind off the fingers early.

Thanks, ya'll!

After posting this, I stumbled on magknits Urban Necessities...I think I am going to make those without the mitten covers...I think, with a bit of adjustment, they could be good for my boy's giant Man Hands: http://magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/urban.htm

Qwerty, that pattern is actually at ohmystars.net! http://ohmystars.net/craft/index.htm -- I think I might have to knit it up for myself.

And finally, gaiter, your dog is adorable!

Thanks again! I'll post my gloves when I finish, which at my knitting rate should be around next summer. haha.
