Aaa! They're the perfect thing, but I can't open the pdf! Any chance you can post the instructions in a diff format? It might be that it's just my comp...  Embarrassed

Hmm, I know the pdf is ok because a bunch of people have opened it... so I wonder why it won't work on some computers? Hmm. Anyway, I will try to get a web page version up soon. That will take a little longer because I have to turn the chart into a graphic for the web. Tonight or tomorrow I will see if I can do this. Thanks for letting me know that you are having a problem with it.

I could've sworn I saw some stylish hipster in my neighborhood wearing these today--but I see we're on opposite sides of the country, so it couldn't've been you. A lightning-fast knitter must've jumped on your pattern already. (really, same color and everything)

Lovely work!

Oopsie, never mind! I was determined to get that pattern, so I bumped my bro off his comp, and it worked fine  Wink Thanks for the pattern! I've been looking for a good wrist warmer pattern for a little while, and this was the best board. I'm a beginner whose *sort of* mastered the basics, but I figure I'll have to tackle something sooner or later. I'll post how it goes!  Smiley

Those are just so darn awesome! Hmmm, maybe that'll be next on my list... after I finish (well, okay, after I start and finish) Christmas presents!

Heh, I think everyone north of latitude 40 or so has wristwarmers on the brain lately. My husband set the heat in our house to 57 during the day! (While HE is gone but I am here. Hmph.) So I have to do something to keep from freezing. (That and turn up the heat when he's not looking! Shocked )Cables are sort of an obvious design for them, so I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people are making and wearing cabled wristwarmers now. Midnightsky1686 here on Craftster came out with a pattern for braid cable wristwarmers this week too (see them here, which are sort of similar to mine and yet also rather different. Smiley

Velour, I'm looking forward to seeing them! And BraveFool, thanks!

By the way, I replaced the pattern PDF with a smaller one (it was over 4 megs before, and I think that might be why some people had trouble downloading it). So if you had trouble before, try again. Jodi1978, I'll e-mail you.

Quoting myself for a moment...

Heh, I think everyone north of latitude 40 or so has wristwarmers on the brain lately.  (...)  Cables are sort of an obvious design for them, so I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people are making and wearing cabled wristwarmers now.

Someone mentioned Knitscene magazine in a forum I was reading tonight, and I finally checked out their website to look at the photos -- they have braid cabled wristwarmers too! (They call them "fingerless mitts"!) They look kind of like mine, only they seem to be a lot longer, and the ribbed cuffs are shorter! They use a bunch more yarn (different yarn too, of course). I can't tell which type of thumbhole they are using. I guess I will have to pick up that magazine if I ever see it show up at the newsstand and see how similar it really is.

Anyway, it looks like if you want cabled wristwarmers/armwarmer/mitts/gauntlets/whatever you want to call them, there are a lot of choices this autumn! A lot. Smiley Heh. I had no idea I was that much a part of the knitting zeitgeist.

I'm beginning to think I should have used a different cable.  Wink But I do like that braid.
