Finished these a few days ago (I'm lazy about taking pictures-- they only took a couple of days to make), and I'm really proud of them.



They're made from Crystal Palace Panda Wool, a bamboo/wool blend that's super soft and amazing- bamboo is my favorite fiber at the moment.

The two asymmetrical cable motifs come from the Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume 2. I thought the way they mirrored each other would be great for gloves, and I love delicate one-stitch cables.

The fit me realy well, and will be great for the chilly spring/summer evenings here in Northern California.


And a few of you asked for a pattern, so here it is (I've never written up a pattern before, so let me know if this has any confusedness. Also, I have no idea how to create charts on the computer, so I just photographed the ones I have in my knitting journal. I hope they're legible.)

Yarn: Crystal Palace Panda Wool (46% bamboo 43% wool 11% nylon), Color #9598 (Jet Black) or any other solid-colored fingering or sport weight yarn.
      Waste Yarn for thumbhole

Gauge: 22 stitches=2 inches in K1tbl, P1 ribbing (unstretched)
      9 rows= 1 inch

Needles: US #3 (3.25 mm) double pointed

Right Glove: Cast on 60 stitches. Join in round. *K1tbl, P1*, repeat to end of round
Work 11 more rounds in K1tbl, P1.
Next round: K1tbl, P1, M1, *K1tbl, P1*, repeat between *s to end of round
Next round: K1tbl, work row 1 of chart 1 over next 11 stitches, complete round in K1tbl, P1 pattern as set.
Work next 31 rounds as set above: K1tbl, work next row of chart 1 over next 11 stitches, finish round in K1tbl, P1 ribbing.
Next round (round after chart 1 has been completed): *K1tbl, P1*, repeat between *s 11 times (22 stitches total). Break yarn, and knit next 8 stitches with waste yarn. Rejoin working yarn and finish round in K1tbl, P1 pattern as set.
Next round: Work 22 stitches in K1tbl, P1 pattern; still using main working yarn, K the eight stitches that have been knit in waste yarn, complete round in K1tbl, P1 pattern.
Work 12 more rounds in K1tbl, P1 pattern. Bind off all stitches.
Right Thumb: Remove waste yarn and pick up the resulting live stitches: 8 stitches at the bottom of the thumb opening and 7stitches at the top. Work bottom stitches in pattern: *K1tbl, P1* 4 times. Pick up and Ktbl 1 stitch between top and bottom of thumb opening, pick up and p 1 more stitch. Work 8 stitches at top in pattern: *K1tbl, P1* 3 times, K1 tbl. Pick up and P1 1 stitch between top and bottom of thumb opening: 18 stitches total.
Work 10 rounds in K1tbl, P1 ribbing, then bind off all stitches.

Weave in ends and sew closed any gaps at base of thumb.

Left Glove: Cast on 60 stitches, join, and work 12 rounds in *K1tbl, P1* pattern.
On the next round, work 16 stitches in pattern, M1, finish round in pattern.
Next round: Work 8 stitches in pattern, work row 1 of chart 2 over next 11 stitches, finish round in pattern.
Work next 31 rounds as above: work 8 stitches in pattern, work next row of chart 2 over next 11 stitches, finish round in pattern.
Next round, after chart 2 has been completed: work 50 stitches in pattern, K 8 stitches with waste yarn, K1tbl, P1.
Next round: work 50 stitches in pattern, still using main working yarn, K the eight stitches that have been knit in waste yarn, complete round in K1tbl, P1 pattern.
Work 12 more rounds in K1tbl, P1 pattern, then bind off all stitches.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
