These gloves feature cabled hearts travelling up the back of the hand. A smaller cable echoes the hearts over the thumb. The rest of the glove is in stretchy double rib, which allows a reasonable range of hand sizes to fit them.

Available in long and short versions, as mittens or as fingerless gloves.

Knitted with DPN needles, you also need a cable needle for the cabling and two stitch markers. I’ve provided a chart for the main cable, the rest of the instructions are written.

You need:

60 - 80g DK yarn for the shorter versions
100 - 120g DK yarn for the long versions

The versions seen with this pattern are knitted in Stansborough Mythral in Rata (red) and Kokako Grey and Zealana Rimu in Riverbank.
