Fancy Trellis Lace Fingerless Gloves


I did it. I finally designed a pattern. The structure of these gloves is based off of SmarieK's Persephone Fingerless Gloves, but I edited the length, needle size, yarn weight, and thumb gusset. The Persephone gloves are really pretty, but they restrict the use of my pinky greatly, therefore, in my mind, totally defeating the purpose of fingerless gloves (which is, of course, to be able to use your fingers while they're nice and toasty). So I made these shorter, and made them fitted a little. I also gave them a pretty lace pattern.






Fancy Trellis Lace Fingerless Gloves

Needles:
four, US 5/3.75mm double pointed needles
Yarn: about half a standard big-box sized skein of worsted (upon reflection, I think I actually used DK... [4/11/09])
Also needed: two stitch markers, stitch holder/waste yarn

Gauge: 8 rows & 6 sts in 1"

Size: Women's large hands (8" circumfrence around the widest part of the knuckles, not including the the thumb)

Pattern :)

CO 48 st
Distribute as follows: Needle 1, 24st; Needle 2, 12st; Needle 3, 12st

2 by 2 rib for 9 rounds

Row 10: K1, Kfb, P2, continue 2 by 2 rib

Now, for the rest of the glove until the finishing ribbing, on needle 1 you will be knitting the pattern below, and on needles 2 & 3 you will just be knitting, unless otherwise stated.

Fancy Trellis Lace Pattern

2: K2 (K1, K2tog, yo, K1, yo, K2tbl, K1)x3 K2

Repeat pattern above twice (remember, pattern is only on needle 1; needles 2 & 3 are knit).
Repeat rounds 1-3 from above pattern.

Instead of knitting stockinette on needles 2 and 3, continue the 2x2 ribbing as long as dictated above (two pattern repeats + rounds 1-3), for a better fit. The palm will still be knit as per original pattern.

Notes
K2tbl: knit 2 together through the back loop; knit two together, but from the back, not the front. Video here, just scroll down and look for "k2tog tbl."
Krl: Knit right loop. Video here, but it is only the increase part.
Kll: Knit left loop. Video here, but it is only the increase part.
*marker*: Just signifying where the st marker is on the needle. Nothing special.

    I liked the design too. I tried to knit it and there seems to be some errors in your pattern. The first two of the Fancy Trellis Lace Pattern
    goes well but the third line is messed up, you don't end up with enough stitches to knit at the end of that line.

    Is there a way to do it by knitting it on regular knitting needles and then stitching it up? I'm still not very good at using double-pointed needles... >.<
