I tried one thing and it looked, well, horrible. Kind of like a mutated, five-fingered spider.
So I started all over again from scratch and I think I've found a good formula, but it will still take lots of trial (and error) to get right. It will also require lots of trying on to get the fingers right. So making gifts, unless one is exceptionally skilled, or has hands like the giftee, this won't be the pattern for them.
However, I usually make my patterns for my own use anyway and put it up for others to try if they like.
