I came here to rant...but thanks, Rebecca! .... this glove is turning out to be 1-2 inches wider than my hand...GRR! My gauge is the same as the size 7 needles, and I'm knitting with size 3 needles (the other size it says to use!) I was sooo excited about this, and now it's not going to fit me...I know I have small hands, but this is ridiculous. Sooo... I'm wondering if I should finish a pair and give them to someone with bigger hands (my boyfriend more than likely - his hands are huge)...or rip it out and get a better pattern (I dont know how to alter it) and I don't have smaller needles than US 2 DPNS.

...PS... I know that gauge is important, but I figured if it was a little loose it'd be fine. I'm usually pretty darn close to the gauge...this person mustve been a super tight knitter! that or they listed the wrong needle size... if I knit this any tighter, I wouldnt be able to get the needle in the stitch! And I'm not a tight knitter! These stitches are a little loose!

EDIT: I called my sleeping boyfriend, and he said he'd seriously wear them since they fit him, and as much as I love to see his face with his new knitted gear, I really wanted these to be mine, but I'd just be heartbroken to rip it all out and start over. I just need to hurry up and by every DPN size ever made! And really spend time on gauge...

Rebecca posted this somewhere else, but this pattern might help you:

You can ensure they fit!

I'm starting a pair of these today.

Thanks! How funny, this lady's name has been everywhere in my world. I'd probably divide the top sts by four so that I can have half fingers, because I already have a pattern I can alter for fingerless mittens.

Thanks!

OH yeah..I so love that pattern and I am so BUMMED that she had to stop publishing the e-magazine..I believe she had a baby, sorry for my ignorance on the reasons behind no longer publishing the e-mag, I just remember that she will no longer have time to do it. I LOVE that mag!
That pattern is WONDERFUL I have adapted it to a few fingerless gloves thus far & when I find the glove needles that I want...I may actually start making the fingers in the future
Good luck! I'm glad your honey will wear them

Yea, That looks pretty cool. I'll be trying to make some for me some...I really want to make myself something that fits! rah! I make stuff for others and it fits fine, I get to mine and it's wayyyy too big. I think from now on I'll measure myself and just adapt or something.

I finished one fingerless glove! It really wasnt that hard...Now I'm thinking of sorta designing my own...like adding ribbing to the side so that it's not as loose. But I may try that on MY pair, not his. He said he'll buy me another skein as soon as he gets some money Luckily they dont cost that much. and mine will be GREEN!

If you work in a diagonal rib the ribbing will not have the give or bulk.

I make these for one nieces and will have to give to another because the give is not as great as I thought it would be. If you use the diagonal cast of loose.
