That is awesome!  My boyfriend was looking over my shoulder when I was looking at it, and he thought it was great looking, too!

Man...too many things on the to-knit list.  Butterfly is next, but maybe this will be after!  Thanks for the pattern!  Oh - and to ask the same question as Escribita - about what size do you think it is, or what are your measurements so we can add repeats accordingly?  Thanks!

thank you everyone. if you do try it please post the results for me to see!

Love it.  what size do you think it is?  I'm guessing small.  I'd love to make it.
all that info, and hints for resizing, is on the pattern page.

HEY! i was looking at this pattern (which i plan on making soon), and realized that my very first FO ever (last november) was a pair of your cheat's fingerless gloves! i made like, 5 pairs (christmas gifts and such) and after making the last pair out of lionbrand microspun, i vowed never to make another pair again. lol.

i looooove this pattern and i plan on making it in some silky wool i have, so i'm wondering if most of the stretch comes from the lace itself, or is some of that from the nylon in the yarn too?
can anyone comment on the stretchy-factor of the suggested yarn?
 i can just add some more repeats if the wool/silkl won't provide enough stretch.

I'm wondering the same thing. I went to get some Snuggly yesterday, but none of the colours really flatter me, so I went with a cotton instead, which won't stretch a bit by iteself. I'm going to swatch with the cotton, and I'll let you know what happens.

yes, the yarn does have some stretch itself so i don't think i'd recommend a yarn with no stretch - especially a 100% cotton. you might have to add a couple of extra repeats to compensate but it might not be as form-fitting that way. a cotton-acrylic blend might work, as might silky wool as wool is prety stretchy. i think i'll try #2 in a different fibre.

I am going to make this!

I have  2 skeins of yarn in my stash- Katia Mississippi in #772 (a burgundy/wine color) that will be perfect. I hope I will have enough. Its cotton/acrylic, which does stretch a tad, but I will add some repeats so as to not to look like a sausage casing.   Undecided

Razor shell rules! I just used it as an edging in a pattern I wrote, but this is an even better use for it!

Yup, perfect summer project.  I was going to start Butterfly, but I think I might put it on hold because it looks like I might actually be able to finish this one in time to wear this summer!  I never start my "summer" projects soon enough...(sigh)

Thanks so much for the pattern!!
