So, my co-worker Johan has always kept nagging me to make him stuff, even after I bound him a book, so now that he's leaving I decided to make him some fingerless gloves (excellent keyboard gloves)

Inspired by Fetching from knitty.com, I made my own less feminine version. I never understood how the Dashing were supposed to be a more masculine version. They're just longer and with a more broad pattern! Anyway, with some trial and horror, this is what I ended up with

I call them "bring-it gloves" as a wordplay of fetching, coupled with Johan being a fighter (I don't keep track of what exact type of violence he favors aside from his wrestling, so I'll leave you hanging on that one)

Mandatory action shots

Here's an attept to show the wrist pattern a bit better (ofcourse I couldn't get around to getting a pic in the sunlight...)

It's a bit like an inversed bubble pattern Smiley

It's a self-dyed yarn, using KnitPick's Bare DK, and I only used about half for the gloves.
Needles 2.5 (3.00mm)
Approx 23sts/10cm

CO 64 stitches (you probably won't need to do anything stretchier than normal long-tail, because the twisting pattern takes care of the elasticity)

Join in the round and repeat this pattern all the way around, giving you a total of 8 horizontal repeats:

Continue with a k3,p1 rib all the way around, for 21 rows

Grab some waste yarn and k11 (going over three of the thick ribs, and two purly bits)
Transfer yarn back to needle you knit them from (usual dealie)
Continue the k3,p1 rib for 6 rows

k1,p1 for 4 rows (at this point you may want to do a series of twists to get it more snug, or decrease a few sts here and there - I liked the "loose" result I got here though, it follows my hand but isn't snug)

Bind off. (here I used the style of k1, p1, transfer k st over p st, k1, transfer p st over k st, etc, to fit the ribbing)

Now we get back to the thumb.
Remove waste yarn and transfer loose sts to needles (I used 4 needles)
Look at the glove with the wrist facing you. The needles closest to you should have 11 sts.
If the needles closer to the finger end of the glove (top) has 10 sts, pick up one st on the left side of the thumb, and 2 on the right.
If the needles closer to the finger end of the glove (top) has 12 sts, pick up one on the right.
Put the last picked up st on the right side on bottom needles, giving you 12 sts at the top and 12 at the bottom.

k1,p1 for 4 rows
BO as for fingers

"That's my lab table and this is my work-stool. And over there is my intergalactic spaceship! And here's where I keep assorted lengths of wire."

...oh, if it wasn't clear, I'm rarely completely serious. Smiley
