Dear Sandi,

I really like Nicholas's Fingerless Gloves.  But, I came to a part in the pattern where I'm a little muttled.  When doing the right hand glove, I've come to the "RIng Finger:" portion -- It says: "Rnd 1:  P1, sl 1, k2, psso, p1, put next 25 sts on waste yarn, pick up and knit 2 sts to cover gap bet ring and middle fingers, knit last 6 sts, CO 2 sts to cover gap bet pinkie and ring fingers " --  the part that bothers me is - didn't I already cover the gap bet the pinkie and ring finger in the "Upper Hand:" section?  Please let me know what to do. 

Thanks! 

Mack

Ps. Sorry for the misspelling of "Upper."

Help! I really want to make these gloves, but I am allergic to alpaca yarns, does anyone know the weight of this yarn used in the pattern so I can get a similar weight in wool?

Completing this pattern gave me a great sense of accomplishment as I learned to knit 7 months ago. The pattern is right on and the finger instructions made completion a breeze. Thanks for making this pattern available!

Dear Sandie

I have printed the pattern for the mittens, I don't have the  U.K. abbreviations for the U.S. patterns, will you please send them to me, perhaps print them occasionally on your patterns.

I thank you in anticipation.

Also, ms wildbird, in books such as the "Lace and Eyelets" listed right on this webpage, they have many different patterns that are listed as ex. multiples of 6 + 1. If you just want a headband, simply do one repeat of the pattern and you'll have a long rectangle. Stop when it's long enough, bind off, sew together. Walla!

Hi Sandy- the PDF lists "finished size: About 7” (18 cm) hand circumference and 91⁄2” (24 cm) long, unstretched. To fit a man’s medium or woman’s large hand." Your dainty fingers would be swimming in these if you dont change your yarn and needle size. Bethany

3-23-09 Hello from Vancouver,BC. Do love Nichola's Fingerless Gloves but wondering about the size.. I would love to knit a pair but have the smallest of hands and thin fingers. Would you think they would be too big ? Thanks so much. Sandy

Do you have a headband pattern to match these gloves?
