Quick and Easy Cabled Gauntlets
Created by Heather Wells
Hey all, I wrote this pattern a long time ago, but I knit up a pair of gauntlets last night for a quick Christmas Present. I wanted to get it up in case any of you needed to make a last minute gift.
220 yards Worsted Weight yarn
U.S. Size 7 and 8
Gauge: 18st/ 9rows = 2” using cabled pattern slightly stretched
*** This is basicly a cabled rib it stretches, so as long the yarn isn’t bulky, and you are using the right sized needles, you can follow the pattern without knitting a gauge.***
With U.S. 8 needles cast on 50
Rows 1,3, and 5: *K2,P2,K6, P2. Repeat from * ending with a K2.
Rows 2,4,6, and 8: *P2, K2, P6, K2. Repeat from * ending with P2.
Row 7: *K2,P2, C6F, P2. Repeat from * ending with K2.
Continue in repeating rows 1 - 8 until piece measures 6” Change to size U.S. 7 needles continue working in pattern until piece measures 12 ½” Bind off.
Fold in half lengthwise and sew from the cast on edge till there is 4” remaining. Sew from the Bind off edge for 2”. this will leaving a 2” opening for your thumb. Turn inside out, secure ends, and weave them in.
Flip it right side out again, and you are finished.
P.S. You can keep track of your rows easily by writing down the amount of rows there are in a pattern, and then use hash marks to keep track of what you have done.
