I’m trying to make myself some armwarmers/fingerless gloves and all the free patterns I’ve found are rather boring. I know I can’t squeeze in too much in the space of an armwarmer, but I’m looking for something complex and pretty; otherwise I’ll get bored, go off and spend more money on yarn.
So, anyone know of a sturdy lace pattern/rib that’d keep an armwarmer on pretty tight but still look snazzy? I’m thinking something more like http://craftoholic.blogspot.com/2006/03/mermaid-gloves.html
I’m getting “A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns” from the library, too, if anyone could point me to a nice lace rib patttern in there, that’d be a huge help.
