You're welcome, Charlotte. I really must get started on learning gloves. For some reason, I keep putting it off. I don't know why gloves intimidate me like they do.

That technique for the I-Cord fingers is a whole world of knitting sexy!

Whoa, baby!!!

If anybody has the moxie to learn gloves, GG, it's you!

I've made several pairs of convertible mittens. I never put buttons on any of them. The flaps pretty much stay flat with no problems. We didn't want to do velcro because everything sticks to it. I say make yourself a pair of those Ravelry mittens. Use the best yarn in your favorite colors and treat yourself. Once you make and wear these mittens, you get spoiled really fast. They're fabulous driving gloves.

I tried these years ago and didn't really like the pattern. I've made gloves before and they're really easy but this pattern makes it difficult...way more difficult then it needs to be. Like someone else said, huge holes requiring tones of stitching after ward. Loads of ends to weave in.

I'd suggest another pattern but maybe you'll have better luck! I'm sure they'll be beautiful.

I got sidetracked from gloves, I finally learned how to knit English and now I'm playing with 2 color and double knitting. ADD?

Since people who actually know what they're doing say too many ends, big holes, I'm taking a pass on making gloves like this. Thanks for saving me from learning the hard way!

If you want an easy glove pattern, you might want to make sideways gloves. They're done in garter stitch on two needles.
