Cabled Fingerless Gloves
Cabled Fingerless Gloves were originally designed for my niece, Faith. She requested a pair of cabled fingerless gloves, with only a couple “Really” wants. Faith would really like her fingerless gloves to be worked up in just one color and have a simple basic cable. She wanted the cable offset; “Looks like they are twisting around the front of my hand.” As you can imagine, Faith was very excited when she got them in the mail. When I spoke to her a few weeks later she told me, “I wear them every day”. After seeing the gloves on Faith, her cousin, Emily, requested a pair knit up in pink. Emily’s gloves needed to be a bit smaller than Faith’s so I rewrote the pattern to include a smaller size as well. Once again, I remain the favorite aunt!
♥In conclusion, the pattern includes video tutorials for M1PR and M1PL.
The pattern also provides instructions for working the thumb flat as well as in the round.
