Title: Cabled fingerless gloves- Now with Pattern!
Post by: knightswhosayknit on April 05, 2007 07:51:45 PM
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.

Ok, I edited my post to add a pattern! It's the first one I've ever written up, so if anyone's actually going to knit from it, definitely let me know if there are issues/confusing things/questions!
