These were a blast to knit! As you can see, they look incredibly different from the original. Here’s what I did…

Mods

  • CO for size small and knit 1x1 rib for 10 rnds.
  • Worked honeycomb cable as follows: Row 1: (C4B, C4F) x3, P2, K to last 2 sts, P2. Row 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8: K 24, P2, K to last 2 sts, P2. Row 5: (C4F, C4B) x3, P2, K to last 2 sts, P2. Repeat rows 1-8 until piece measures 4 1/2” from CO edge.
  • Right: work gusset in stockinette, placing gusset marker right after first P2, continuing honeycomb cabling as established above.
  • Left: work gusset in stockinette, placing gusset marker at 4 sts before end of rnd, continuing honeycomb cabling as established above.
  • Work gusset to st count of original pattern.
  • Continue honeycomb cabling as established above for 1’ more.
  • Work 1x1 rib for 5 rnds and BO in pattern
  • Pick up for thumb and K 1/2”, work 1x1 rib for 5 rnds and BO in pattern.
