Pattern for Gloves
I really hate to post here, because I feel like I am making you all do all my work for me, but I was wondering if any of you knew of a simple glove pattern. (By glove, I mean glove with five fingers that are completely closed. Not fingerless, or the ones where it looks like the tips were chopped off, although I might be able to pull those off.) I need something that is flexible and light-weight, not too chunky, yet warm at the same time. (Is that even possible?) I need a good pair of gloves for these winter days which are fast approaching, milking the cows will get bitter soon, which is why they need to be flexible enough and not tight. I would look on Ravelry, but it is blocked on my computer. If there is a direct link to a pattern on Ravelry, I can see it, but I can't search for it myself. Thank you so, so much, I really appreciate it, (so do my fingers! ) and again I wish there was some way I could repay you!

I came across this Web site awhile back and found the top-down approach to glove-making rather interesting (I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my to-do list). It requires you to do I-cords (with a slight twist) for the fingers, which is very easy--easier than wrangling three or four DPNs anyway.

You'll probably have to click through several "installments" on this site to get the whole tutorial. Here's another tutorial by the same woman for the same gloves, I think: http://nonaknits.typepad.com/nonakni...nas_happy.html

Hope this helps!

First.... Ravelry is blocked at home?? Work I can understand. Can you see anything if it's linked to Rav?

There's some great patterns for simple fingered gloves, but many are Ravelry downloads.

Flip top gloves... has a flap over the fingers..BUT the fingers are separate and you could just leave the flap off and knit fingers. I made the flip top ones for my daughter. They're great!

There's tons more, but it's a start. These are all supposed to be DK or sport weight.

Thank you both so much! I was planning on putting my own twist on them, so just basics are great!
Also, I love the first one you had, Jan, because it's unisex; I'm glad to have found one that's good for both, because it'd be really easy to make a cute design on the cuff for women, but the men always seem prefer plain.

Nothing should not be blocked in your own home. Unless you're a 12 yr old kid who's parents control what they want them to see. Glad you were able to sign on to Rav, but you definitely need to check out this filter!

These are some of my favorites that I found interesting. I have done the peekaboo mittens and the Chemknits convert any mitten pattern to fingerless gloves. They work out well. I started the granny's gloves on Bev's website, but thought the cuff was a bit too long.
