Strappy Stella Gloves
An introduction to gloves for beginners, or for anyone who doesn’t like knitting in the round. (No DPN Required!) The gloves are knit flat, then seamed up the sides. The twisted stitch gives an illusion of a cable, without using a cable needle. Finished by picking up for straps and secured by 2 adorable buttons of your choice!
There is a great mattress stitch tutorial on seaming on Knitty:
