I absolutely love cables in my knitting and if they don’t exist, I love finding a way to add them and if they do exist, I love how changing them out for another type of cable changes the look and feel of that project. That was my inspiration for these gloves. With several cable options already provided in the pattern and the potential for more, you can choose your own adventure and your own outcome every time you knit a pair of gloves.

Instructions are for large size gloves that should fit an average adult male hand. Changes for medium size gloves are in parentheses and should fit smaller size adult hands.

This pattern requires 220 yards of sport weight yarn for a lighter glove. Worsted weight yarn can be used for a very dense glove. More yarn may be needed depending on how long you want your cuff to be.

One set of US size 2 DPN’s - 6in
Appropriate sized cable needle
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Stitch holders or contrasting waste yarn
OPTIONAL - one set of size 2 DPN’S - 3in for working the fingers. One can also be used as your cable needle
