Three-Cable Hand Warmers

June 2012
Aran (8 wpi) ?
23 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches
in K2 P1 ribbing, unstretched
US 8 - 5.0 mm
97 - 107 yards (89 - 98 m)
Medium/Large (X-Large)

Three identical cables line up nicely on the backs of these hand warmers. Although the cables are just alike, if you look closely at any one of the cables, you’ll see that its two curves are not mirror-image. Instead, they are slightly uneven, an interesting effect that is easly achieved by the addition of a purl stitch.

If working in the round is desired, subtract one stitch from each edge of the fabric (subtract 4 total -- 2 from the top panel and two from the bottom panel) and use double pointed needles in the appropriate size to get gauge.
