Still trying to navigate my way around here. Smile Can't seem to locate the other posts regarding "Fetching". I made several pair of Fetching before I decided I liked them longer. On the other hand, I made two pairs of "Dashing" and think they're way too long. I haven't tried making them shorter yet. But I really like both patterns.

Holly, the link didn't work, nor did typing it in. Do you know if it's still active? or did it move?

Right, the link above didn't work for me either. You can still find the pattern here:

I've been wanting to try some fingerless mitts. This sounds like a great pattern to try. I'm up for a KAL.

I like the blue/green ones shown at the link you posted, but I haven't tried making a pr. with the fingers knitted in like that yet. I think I could handle it though, even as a beginner. Smile

My husband does wear the pair of "Dashing" I made him, but mostly in the house in our chilly computer room.

I'm not sure how to organize a KAL, but if someone else would like to do it, I'll participate. However, this pattern only takes a couple of days to make. It's very easy. (I would like to try a shorter version too.)

As I said, I would eliminate several of the plain rows between the end of the cable and the thumb, to shorten them by quite a bit. (Mine turned out at least 12" long total and I think they'd look better shorter. The other point I'd mention is that the cable is quite long and you can't really recognize that there is a cable until you put them on.)

Easy - just start a thread in this part of the forum and let everybody know what you're suggesting. Very Happy

From past experience, I'd suggest a type of pattern (eg fingerless gloves) rather than a specific pattern (eg Dashing) as it gives people the option of knitting something similar if there's something about a specific pattern that they don't like.
