Yarn note (from knitty.com): Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran is beautiful and soft and comes in gorgeous colors. The cool thing about these gloves is that you only need one skein to make a pair. However, you have to be willing to unravel your gauge swatch to do this, because one pair takes an entire skein with less than a yard of yarn left over. If you feel the need to keep your gauge swatches, you will need to buy two skeins. Also, note that the gauge listed on the yarn label is 18 stitches over 4 inches, while the gauge for this pattern is 21 stitches over 4 inches. That’s because smaller-than-recommended needles are used to create the thick, velvety knitted fabric.

Finished measurements: Cuff circumference: 7 inches (unstretched); Length: 6.25 inches

Description from knitty.com:

These fingerless gloves come pretty close to instant knitting gratification: buy your yarn on Friday after work, and by Sunday evening you can have a new pair of stylish handwarmers to enhance your Monday commute.

The cables hold the gloves nicely at your wrist and across your knuckles, and are excellent for keeping you warm yet unhindered while knitting, typing, or enjoying a coffee at an outdoor café. If you have never tried knitting cables before, this would be an excellent project to start with. The cable pattern is simple, and if you make a mistake and end up having to rip out some rows, it shouldn't take you long to catch up.
