Marlaina "Marly" Bird fled the world of financial services to launch her Yarn Thing podcast and hasn't looked back since. To Marly, a bi-craftsy girl who both knits and crochets, the yarn is the star, not how you work with it. She's creative director for Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns and the co-author of Curvy Crochet (Leisure Arts, 2011). You've seen her designs in Knit Simple, Interweave Crochet, Knitscene, Inside Crochet, Wild Fiber and Petite Purls, and in the books Perfectly Plus and Knitting Plus. In her spare time she raises three kids in suburban Denver.

The inspiration for these fingerless mitts came when I saw the beautiful natural colors of the yak/merino Bijou Spun "Himalayan Trail". A Fair Isle cable pattern immediately came to mind so I designed the Dual Cable Fingerless Gloves.
I love the Yin and Yang of the cream and brown yarn cabled around each other. It made knitting this piece both complex and exciting. Go ahead and treat yourself with this great yarn and a pattern that will push your knitting limits and help you become a capital K knitter!
This project is a great compliment to the Mittens and Gloves Galore class here on Craftsy.com
Make yourself a set with the Dual Cable Hat and Scarf as well.
Gauge: 8 rows & 10 sts = 1 with size 4(tm)s in dual cable repeat. 10 rows & 6 sts= 1 with size 3(tm)s in stockinette stitch after blocked.
