What are you most proud of? The fact that I was able to keep my attention throughout the pattern. Many twists and turns on those cable rows!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It isn't as hard as it looks. Once the cable pattern is mastered, you have pretty much the whole pattern.

More detailed instructions: Made in the round (I used Magic Loop) with 46 stitches cast on. Cable A pattern is done twice on each round, with an edge stitch on each side (total of 4). 1X1 rib on the top after separating 5 stitches to hold for the thumb. I did not do ribbing on the bottom, but it can made that way. Thumb is 16 stitches (rest picked up around the hole after glove is made), and knit for 4 rounds.

Very clever! Now I know what to do with my leftover yarn from my sweater!

Great idea! Would also be a wonderful way of swatching, you get your swatch knit AND some fingerless gloves into the bargain!

I do like that idea. My hands are always cold in the winter (even though I live in Arizona), so I can always use them!
