My Design - Iguana Fingerless Gloves

I just finished the neatest pattern.  My design of course.

The pattern uses sock yarn, and I knit lengthwise rather than in the round.  I knit and purl a ribbing for the length, then decreased just enough to gather the ribbing, and knit the pattern until it was 7" wide.  A thumb hole is formed 1/3 down the side seam using a cast off and cast on on consecutive rows (like a large button hole).

The gathered ribbing stands straight out to the side and gives the fingerless gloves a ruffle along the outside of the wrist and hand, or switch hands and they can be worn with the ruffle on top up the center of the hand.
