Sorry for the delayed response, I've been working out the pattern for the basketweave gloves. Here's what the front would look like, and then this would be the inside. I'm afraid it's a bit harder than I thought.... It'll be easiest for me to knit them flat and seam them up the side (and leave a hole for the thumb, although I could proooobably do a gusset and thumb stub if you really want it!).

Honestly this is a pattern that's going to work best on a shorter glove. Basketweave doesn't stretch a lot anyway, and the yarn loops from the color-swaps restrict it even further. I'd say mid-arm, max? You might want a liner too, otherwise you'll catch your fingers on the loops every time you put them on. The cost for mid-arm gloves in the color-block basketweave would be $30 without a liner, $33 with.

So the final total for both pair of gloves would be $49 unlined or $52 lined. Odds of getting all three pairs into a small flat-rate box are...rather slim.... BUT I'LL DO MY BEST and if it doesn't work out, I have no shortage of other options and I'll keep you posted if the final price is more (or less!) than what I originally quoted.

Here's some printable tape measures, if you have a printer.... or string and a ruler would work I really just need a rough idea!
