These gloves are a cinch to make! The simple braided cable gives a touch of style to an otherwise normal pair of wrist warmers, and the angora/wool blend used for these gloves gives them a nice vintage feel, plus lots of warmth!

You can substitute any worsted weight wool yarn, you will need about 100 yards, though I would say 110 to be safe! Using a wool or wool blend yarn will be best to show cables and prevent unnecessary stretching and bagging of the gloves. Plus wool wicks away moisture quite nicely!
This is a very, very old pattern from Midnightsky Fibers (back when there was only a teeny tiny website and blog!) so sadly only so-so pictures remain of the original cabled wrist warmers- but the directions have been rewritten for easier following along!
Intermediate- knitting in the round, cables.
One size fits most, you can alter the number of stitches for the st st if you need them wider. If you want to make the gloves longer or wider you will need more yarn.
