Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, cast on, cast off, increasing, cables

Pattern Description:

These lovely gloves look deceptively complex but are actually really easy and fast to work up once you get into the rhythm of them. A stag horn cable emerges gracefully from the ribbing at the forearm and dissolves back in at the end with a little extra cable motif to complete it.

Best of all these instructions are for working the gloves on 2 needles - you'll be using mattress stitch at the end to create a completely seamless result. Knitters who wish to work in the round can proceed with their weapon of choice ;)

These gloves use up less than 200 yards of DK weight yarn, and are worked on 3.5 mm needles. They are easy enough for beginners and would make a great quick knit for seasoned knitters.

Instructions are given for small and medium, but the gloves themselves have lots of stretch once completed.
