October's Phat Fiber theme is Steampunk. I've decided to do a pattern along with my yarn and fiber samples. This time, however, I want it to be a fairly complicated pattern.
I've done fingerless gloves before. Simple ones using the same pattern repeat over and over again. I can hardly sell a pattern for something that uses a dictionary stitch over and over again. No, I decided I need something unique. I also need something that qualifies as "Steampunk", and what better than Fabulous Fingerless Flying Gloves for operating that airship sitting out in your garage. ;)
They are thick lace around the cuffs with eyelets up the thumb gusset. But my personal favorite touch is the loopy bindoff that I used.
They are fairly thick and are a quick knit at 3.5 stitches to the inch on 4.5mm needles. I think they'd look great on handspun. I just need to get something spun up to reknit them after the demo pair is done. :)
