                                                                                  Pic 1

Chain 32 + 3 for turning chain.
Row 1: 1 dc in to 4th chain from hook ( counts as 1st dc), 1 dc in each chain across———-33 dc
Row 2: Ch 1 (counts as 1st sl st), 1 sl st in back loop of next st, 1 sl st in back loop of each st till end of the row———————–33 sl st
Row 3: Ch 3( counts as 1st dc), 1 dc in the back loop of the next st, 1 dc in the back loop of each st across till the end of the row.—————33 dc
Repeat Rows 2 & 3 till you have a total of 16 rows and you end in a sl st Row ( Row 2). Now your gloves should measure 7 inches in width. Do not fasten off.

Pic 3

Fold it with the right side inside (the striped) and start to slip stitch the long sides together to make a tube as shown in pic 2 above. While making the joining sl stitches you will insert your hook through the free loop left on the foundation chain side and the back loop of the sl st on the other side as shown in pic 3 above.

Pic 4

spacer height=”20px”] Sl st till 2 ½ inches is left open. Now stop joining the sides together and work sl stitches up along the foundation chain side only for 1 ½ inches, this will form the hole for your thumb as shown in pic 4 above. Now sl st the rest of the 1 inch together till you reach the end. Do not fasten off.
Continue to work a round of sc around the opening of the gloves to even out the irregular edges. Work the sc stitches along the inside of the tube as that would be the right side of the glove. Try to distribute the sc as evenly as possible.
Make one more glove following the exact same pattern. The right side of your glove will look like the pic below.

Faux Cables

                                                                          Pic 6

Try the glove on the left hand inserting your thumb through the hole and place markers to show 2 tracks running through the middle of your hand as shown in pic 6 above. Repeat with your right glove. Now you know where to work your faux cables for each side.

                                                                                 Pic 7

Overview: You start from the point shown by the red dot and work upwards along the red arrow to complete one side of the cable. Once you reach the top you work down the brown arrow to complete the mirror image of the first half you made.
The three orange vertical lines indicate the left, middle and right sl st ridges.

Pattern for Faux Cables
Keep the gloves down with the markers showing on top. Sl st to the base of the ridge on the right as shown by the red dot and follow the blue line as shown in pic 7 above.
Ch 3, sl st to the 5th st on the middle ridge to the left, *(ch 4, sl st to the 9th st ( counted from the previous sl st made on the same ridge) on the right ridge, Ch 4, sl sl to the 9th st on the middle ridge) Repeat from * 2 more times. Now you will have reached the top of your glove.


Pic 8

Now, you will work your way down and make the mirror image of the cable you already made following the green line in pic 7 above.
*(Ch 4, sl st to the point opposite to the one made on the right ridge, ch 4, sl st to the middle ridge at the same point as the first cable you made). Repeat from * 2 more times, ch 3 and sl st to the end of the ridge. Do not fasten off. Work a round of sc around the glove opening to even out the edges. Weave in the remaining tails.
Follow the same steps to work cables between the markers for the right glove too. Your lovely fingerless mitts with faux cables is now ready to wear!

    Hi,
    thanks so much for this lovely pattern!
    I was thinking about making the gloves a little shorter, since I prefer them to not go too far up my arm. Can you tell me how to calculate how many rows I can take off so that the cable pattern still fits? I hope this makes sense 🙂

      You can subtract 9 chains from your initial chain.

    I’m a little confused on the count. If you chain 32 + 3, then DC in the 4th from the loop (which would be chain 32), how do you end up with 33 DC? I have done it 3 times and always get 31 DC.

      The beginning ch-3 also counts as a dc.

    Hi! For row 3, when you chain 3 (first dc) then dc in each of the 33 sl st, you end up with 34. What am I doing wrong? 🙂

      Hi Desra, I think you must be working a dc into the same st as ch 3. The beginning ch-3 already counts as a dc, so you won’t work a dc into the very first stitch. I hope that helps.

    I love the concept of this pattern and am very eager to make these wrist warmers/fingerless mitts. I’m have trouble achieving the correct gauge. When I use 5.0mm hook I get 12 dc sts per 3.5 inches. I went down to a 4.0mm hook and was able to achieve the correct stitch gauge of 14 dc sts per 3.5 inches. However, my row gauge is way off – too far off. My row count of 4 dc rows alternating with 3 sl st rows measures only 2.5 inches. If I was to go to the larger hook, my dc stitch gauge would be far to large i.e. only 12 stitches per 3.5 inches.

    As I write this, I’m thinking that probably the row count gauge is more important to get correct than the stitch count gauge, as the row count determines how the mitt will fit around the wrist and hand. The stitch count gauge is probably more forgiving because it determines the length of the mitt from wrist to fingertip. Would you agree?

    I’m really curious though, as to how you managed to achieve the gauge numbers for this pattern. I’m finding it impossible!

    Thanks

      You can add a couple more rows to make it fit your hand. Just make sure your cable pattern is centered.
