Long Cabled Gauntlets

Created by: Heather Wells

220 Yards Worsted Weight Yarn
U.S. size 7 and 8 Knitting Needles
Yarn Needle
Gauge: 9st, 4.5 rows per inch slightly stretched in cable pattern

Note:  This is a pattern I created and shared on ravelry.    

Straight Needle Version
**Leave a tail  at least 11 inches long when casting on, to sew up the side of your gauntlet.

With size U.S. 8 needles cast on 50
Rows 1, 3, 5, and 7: *P2, K2, P6, K2.  Repeat from * across, ending with P2.
Rows 2, 4, and 6: *K2, P2, K6, P2.  Repeat from * across, ending with K2.  
Row 8:  *K2, P2, C6F, P2.  Repeat from * across, ending with K2.

Continue repeating rows 1-8 until piece measures 6 inches.  Continues knitting on the U.S. size 7 needles until piece measures 12 ½ inches, bind off.  Leave a tail for sewing from the top of your gauntlet. Fold piece in half lengthwise, using the Cast on tail sew up to 4 inches from the top of your gauntlet.  Weave in the left over yarn.  Using the tail of the bind off edge, sew 2 inches, and weave in your end.  This will leave a 2 inch gap for your thumb to fit through.
