Knitted with two strands of laceweight merino held together in Barbara Walker's Rick Rib.  Sorta 80's.  It's way too hot here to wear it right now!  I knitted this to submit to Knitty - the editor responded with "very creative but not 'Knitty'" - to be fair, since it was for the "Sex and the Knitty" issue, there was a pouf of eyelash yarn on the palm, which could look tacky; the upside  is the pattern is written out all nice and neat.
(this post has been edited to clarify submission situation)

Fingerless Lace Glove

S [M,L,XL]
Hand (stretched): 5.5 [6,6.5,7.5,8] inches
Length: (stretched) 7

[MC] Skacel Merino Lace [100% fine merino wool, shrink resistant; 1375yds/m per 100g skein]
color: black; 1 skein [this project uses less than 10g of yarn]
1 set US #2/2.75mm straight needles
28sts/34 rows = 4 in rick rib, unstretched
Glove is worked with two strands of MC held together.
wyib = with yarn in back
wyif = with yarn in front
Using MC and US#2 needles, CO 30 [32, 34, 38, 40] sts. 
Rows 1-4: work 1x1 ribbing (*k1, p1*)
Row 5: k1, *yo, sl 1 wyib, k1, psso; rep from *, end k1
Row 6: p1, *yo, sl 1 wyif, p1, psso, rep fr *, end p1
Rows 7 68: repeat rows 5 6
Row 69: *k2, p2* for four rows.  Bind off very, very loosely.

Glove: Wash and gently block (dont pin it out); fabric will relax and expand.  When dry, fold in half so that 1x1 ribbing is at the top and 2x2 ribbing is at the bottom.  Sew 2seam at the top (ribbing + 7 pattern repeats), 3.25 at bottom (ribbing + 11 pattern repeats). Weave in all ends.

um, okay, i think it's very "knitty"! try submitting it to magknits instead- they're hip!
anyway, i think those are great. i know a few ladies who will go gaga over these in, say, day-glo orange, to match their teal 80's pumps!
thanks for the pattern!

I would have to say that i personally think that mag knits is not hip and if you read it knitty is very hip,i personally think that if you submit to knitty the pattern is going to get noticed,i would submit it to knitty,i am going to make one or two for some friends,i would definatley go knitty not magknits as nice as magknits is i dont think its as large or well known as knitty would be

I love these gloves though

Thanks!  I hadn't thought of that, I was so obsessed with getting it done in time for the Knitty Summer deadline...the deadline for MagKnits Chilly issue was the 15th and by posting both pattern and photo of finished project here, this particular pattern is no longer submittable. I sent a proposal for items that would involve a modification of this pattern; hopefully it will still be considered even though it's late.  *update* - the one email address I could find on the site turned out to be for someone doing a special project for MagKnits.  I can't find specific contact info for the editor or the submissions package to download, and the "click here to sign up for our newsletter!" gets a 404 error page. 

My teenaged sister has claimed the glove as her own, and wants to know when I'm knitting her another one.

This is the second version, almost complete, done in a chunky yarn on bigger needles.  It's a cotton that doesn't stretch much, so I probably won't make another one with it.

Hi there - I'm guessing that you weren't interested in my suggestion for MagKnits submission but in case you didn't receive the email (I had a few probs last month) or want to change your mind - let me know at my magknits.com email address..

I'm working on something that you might be able to help with..

take care

ooh they're cute, iv'e been meaning to try making some lacy thingerless gloves - i want them in cotton but stretchy... i might find a lace pattern thats quite elastic... once i finish my lace knee high socks... i get bored of lace pretty quickly, takes too much concentration... can't knit and read at the same time oh well... if i do try it il post pics once they're done Smiley

Or you could use Cascade Fixation, which is cotton with a little bit of lycra.  Elann has an equivalent yarn too, called Sock It To Me Esprit.  It's good stuff.
