I found this great pattern on Ravelry.com for these Lace-up Opera Gloves by Ysolda. This pair is for Kat but I'm in the middle of making another pair for Mary Kate. I had to change my needle size from 5 to 8 because the first glove I made was way too small. Also instead of repeating the pattern rows 12 times I had to cut that down to 8 times, otherwise they would have been up to her armpits. This was a really easy pattern except for figuring out how to do the left thumb gusset but that is probably just me. :) For the lacing I just got a 6 yard spool of grosgrain ribbon.
