Description: These gloves match the Sausalito Smoky Cables-and-Lace Cowl and Smoky Cables-and-Lace Hat. Knitted at a slightly looser gauge than is typical for a fingering-weight yarn, Sausalito is an excellent choice for this soft and cozy set.

Size: Woman's Medium, 7" circumference at palm, unstretched*
Gauge: 26 sts=4" in cable-and-eyelet pattern on larger needles, slightly stretched
*If you wish to make a Woman's Small, use the smaller needles for the entire piece.

Work these 12 rnds once, then work Rnds 1-10 once more. On your last rnd (Rnd 10), pm's after the 8th and 10th sts for the thumb.
Begin Thumb Gusset:
Next Rnd: Work Cables-and-Lace patt to first thumb marker, sm, m1, k to 2nd thumb marker, m1, sm, k2, work Cables-and-Lace patt to end of rnd.
Next Rnd: Work Cables-and-Lace pattern to 1st marker, sm, k to 2nd marker, sm, k2, work Cables-and-Lace patt to end.
Repeat these 2 rnds until you have 20 sts between the thumb markers. (You should just have finished a Rnd 4 of Cables-and-Lace patt.)

Continue to work even in Cables-and-Lace as follows: work Rnds 6-12 once, then work Rnds 1-2 once more. Change to smaller needles and work k2 x p1 rib for ½". BO in rib.
Finishing the Thumb:
Sl 18 thumb sts onto 3 dpn's (6 sts each). Join yarn and work k2 x p1 rib for ½". BO in rib.
Weave in all ends. Use the yarn end at the gusset to close up gap when weaving it.
