I suppose technically this is a WIP, because it's part of a pair, and I haven't done the second one yet...



The color is a bit darker and warmer in real life, but flash is not my friend. It's just slightly less than one skein of Drops Alaska 100% wool - I got it really cheap at a small LYS because the color is being discontinued. (The color is #16, in case anyone's interested.)

It's a simple cable, with k3p1 rib around the parts you can't see.

I love it... I want to do cables so badly, but I can't get the hang of it so far.

That looks great. The single cable up the middle suits the style really well, and I love purple.

Love it!!! I think that the purple really makes the cable stand out. ( I hope that makes sense LOL). It looks great!!

Persevere with the cables unpopulartshirt! They're easier than you realise if a little fiddly. Purple is good, cables are good, a great job they look really snug and warm. Mmmmmmm, purple.........

Thanks, everyone. I've finished all but the thumb on the second one. With luck I can wear them to school tomorrow.

I'm looking for a perfect beginers cable project.  This is brilliant.  Can you tell me is it your own pattern or did you get it from somewhere?  I'd love to do something similar

It's my own pattern. If I remember correctly (I accidentally left them at a friend's house):

Cast on 36 stitches on three dpns.

1) p1k3 p1k3 p1k3 p1k3 - p3k6p3 - k1p3 k1p3 k1p3 k1p3.

(Repeat for nine rows.)

2) p1k3 p1k3 p1k3 p1k3 - p3, slip three stitches onto a separate needle (I use a wooden dpn, since I don't have a cabling needle) k3, slip the three back onto the needle they were on and k3, or k3 off the separate needle, whichever ever you think is easiest, p3 - k1p3 k1p3 k1p3 k1p3. (If you knit off the separate needle, they should be knit in the order they would be, make sure you don't accidentally twist anything.)

Repeat 1) for eight rows. Do 2) and so on. When you're at a length you like from bottom to thumb (mine comes at the sixth twist) make a thumb hole with a method you like - I knit in four-five stitches of scrap yarn and pick those stitches up afterwards. Mine are four stitches from before/after the p3 of the cable panel (before/after makes left/right) which seems a good distance. I knit a bit of thumb, but you could just do thumb holes, too.

Do one more set of 1) and 2). Then do nine rows of 1) and do a purl bind-off.

Does that make any sense?

Actually i'm nearly done.  Will post a photo later but they are really good.  Changed the pattern a bit but think you actually need to cast on 44 stitches.  Thanks alot, they're great Smiley

My version of your beautiful armwarmers, an emergency Christmas present for my mother. Thanks for the pattern!
