I think what it means is that for the right armwarmer, the thumb gusset is worked on the 3rd needle beginning at the end of row 30 of the chart as instructed. So to reverse the thumb gusset for the left armwarmer, you have to work 29 rows of the chart, and then start the to work the gusset on the 1st needle as instructed.  So, when it says "work row 30, needle 1:...work to row 30 of chart"  I think what it really means is: "work row 30, needle 1:...work row 30 of chart."  I think you can just disregard the "to" row 30, and just WORK row 30.  does that make sense?
  Because for the right one, you worked row 30 of the chart, and then started the gusset at the end of that round, so to start the LEFT gusset on the same round, you have to actually work the gusset increases before working row 30 from the chart.  then you can continue like you did the right one.
Hope that makes sense!   Smiley

I made some-- with the help of this thread of course!  I used a solid color yarn though... With all that work on the cables, I wanted to make sure people saw them!

Has anyone used Silk Garden rather than the Kureyon for these?  I'm starting them tonight for a quickie gift with an unknown deadline (a friend driving this way from the other side of the country - no arrival date, just meandering) and I'm wondering if I can get away with simply going up a needle size to account for a slight gauge variation.

Here are mine that I made!

this pattern took a little bit of reading this forum thread to get the hang of, but once i got going it was pretty easy!

Alright. It's my first cable project, and i'm already stuck on line 2!!

The (corrected) instructions say to "sl right needle through next three stitches as if to K, K through front, back, and front of all three stitches."

Huh? How on earth do i knit them when they're already on the right needle?

Can someone walk me through this?

Alright: i just read this past post:

Okay, slip the right needle through the stitches, but don't take them off the left needle.  Just insert the needle through all three stitches as though you were going to knit 3 together.  Instead of knitting three together, knit a stitch, but don't drop the 3 sts off the needle, then knit through the back of all three stitches at once and don't drop the three stitches off the needle, then knit through the front of all three stitches at once.  Then you can drop the three stitches off the needle.  You are taking three stitches (a purl, a knit, and a purl) and turning them into 3 stitches (3 knits).  It makes it look purty.

Does this help?


But i keep increasing. How does this work without increasing?
« Reply #116 on: October 21, 2006 08:26:30 AM »

Hmmm.  I'm not sure how you're ending up with an increase at the end of that sequence.  In theory, as the post said, you should just be converting three stitches into a different three stitches, so you'd end up with the same number.  Getting your right needle into all three stitches and then pulling loops through can be pretty awkward for this part, so I found it helpful to keep the first knit in the front loop a little loose so I could swing around and knit through the back loops and then through the front again.  Make sure that for each of those three knits that you're getting your right needle through all three of the stitches on your left needle.  That's all I can think of.  Hope it helps!

This is actually my next project.  My hands are always freezing at work but I need my fingers free for typing so these are perfect!

Here are mine made in Kureyon #124. I am very proud of my armwarmers as they were only my second attempt at cables. I extended the pattern by 25 rows so they come further up my arms. I don't think I can wear them though, as I am really allergic to the yarn  Angry even after a soak in conditioner... but I can't bear to give them away, either.
