Pattern Description:

These stylish horseshoe-cable wristwarmers were designed as a simple, quick knit that will also show you how to read a chart and compare it to written directions. The word directions for the cable even line up directly with the same line in the chart!

Their name is a bit of an equine joke -- the fetlock is roughly equivalent, on a horse, to the area these would cover on a human.


Approximately 3.5 sts and 4 rows = 2.5cm/1" - however, exact gauge is not critical if you are comfortable with the fabric produced

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Sized to fit most women -- and size can be adjusted.


  • 1 skein Malabrigo Merino Worsted (100% wool, 216 yards, color: Pearl Ten)
  • 12" or 16" circular, or straight 5mm/US #8 needles. You may also knit in the round on DPNs or two circular needles

You Will Also Need:

  • Cable needle or DPN (if DPN, preferably one size smaller)
  • Yarn or tapestry needle
