I'm pretty sure that you just C4F for the left hand and C4B for the right...no switching within the actual piece.  Is that what you mean?

hmmmm.. i see. it is weird that in the pattern she never mentions about it. this is the tricky part for the cables though, easy to do but tricky to not make mistakes with the front or back confusions.. oh well i am too wordy. i will go read the pattern online and printed version once more.

hmmmm.. i see. it is weird that in the pattern she never mentions about it.

online the pattern says [C4B, p1] on the left hand, and then

Code:
Right Hand
Work as for Left Hand, EXCEPT work Cable Round as follows:
Cable Round: [C4F, p1] to end.

but I think they've updated it not-too-far-ago, so maybe this was the addition...? or was that for the clapotis...?
Anyway
I made these too! Approx one day per glove! Can't say how many hours per day I worked though, it was mainly while in the car.
I'm amazed on how fast it went, I'm gonna do a pair for my moms birthday too.

Here are some I made for a gift:



Knit with two strands of Elann.com Peruvian Baby Cashmere in Pewter.

I like the fiber I chose, but I don't know if its the best choice for cables. Still, they feel luxurious and look very classy.

If I make some for myself I will order 4 balls and extend the ends to cover more of my fingers, I do have very long fingers!

These were a really quick knit, started when the package arrived yesterday morning and finished at 11 pm last night. I don't know what I should do for the rest of my Cdn thankgiving weekend now!

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

She does mention it! The first part of the pattern is for the LH, and then it says: Work the RH like the left, except use C4F instead, so that the cables twist fetchingly toward the thumb.

Hey, a late birthday present for a friend who works in a cold drafty office:



Took me a couple of evenings each, knit on size 6 needles using Rowan Cashsoft Aran.  I used a little more than one skein because I added one cable repeat at the wrist and made the thumbs slightly longer.  I used the picot bind off with size 4 needles, hoping it would help keep it from flaring out.

I guess I might buy another skein and make myself a pair of even longer ones!

anfarwal, I didn't know I could knit like that--this was my very first time attempting cables!  And it was only my second time wrestling with all those double-pointed needles.  That's still not my favorite thing to do...but the product makes it worthwhile.  And wow, cables are a lot easier than I expected.
