Really easy to follow pattern, which was excellent because I have never tried a gusset or cabling before. Worked like a charm!

Love working with this yarn but it doesn’t show off the cabling especially well.

Added an extra inch in the fingers, but should have decreased the stitches one more time for a more snug fit around the fingers.

I could have used a 4.0mm needle for a more snug fit for my hand. These will fit a medium to large hand.

Now that I now how easy these are, I might pull them out and remake them with the smaller size unless I can get this yarn again.
