Sooo ladies! I was at Target and saw these...



they seem fairly easy to knit, but I'm not quite sure how to star or do the cabling. Any help??

thanks!

I can't really tell from the picture, but the cable looks like either a horseshoe cable, or a 6-st, twist every 8 rows cable.

Are these gloves or mittens or do they not have a hand part at all? Can you find them online, maybe, so we could get a better idea so we can guide you?

They are wrist warmers, I think that's what you would call them.

There is no top,t he bottom looks ribbed, as does the top. And they are about from the knuckles to about 3 inches below the wrist.

Target is charging $12 for these, obsurd.

Aha!  Okay.  Here's what I would do...

Take a look at the pattern for Fetching on Knitty.  Sort of follow that, as far as a basic guide and maybe for the thumb.  Then do a 1x1 rib at the cuff, then start the cable pattern, do that till right before your knuckles, then do the rib for an inch or inch and a half again.  I that'd be pretty close Smiley 

Looks like any worsted weight yarn would work pretty well, though I'd spring for something really yummy and warm, which would probably make those more expensive than 12 bucks >.< oh well!  My guess is that about 100 to 130 yards would get you through a pair pretty easily.

You could also take that idea and use a different cable...check out the internet for different cable pattern ideas.  There are some really pretty ones, you wouldn't have to be restricted to what was on the rack at Target!
