Sausalito Smoky Cables-and-Lace Fingerless Gloves

Designed by Cathy Campbell

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. 

Level:  Intermediate (knowledge of basic cables and eyelets recommended)

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.

Abbreviations:  BO- bind off; C6L- cable 6 left (slip next 3 stitches on cable needle an hold in front of work, knit next 3 stitches, then knit the 3 stitches off the cable needle; CO- cast on; dpn- double-pointed needle; k- knit; k2tog-knit 2 stitches together; m1- make 1 stitch (pull band of yarn on row below between stitch just worked and next stitch and slip onto left needle, knit into back of this stitch to make a new stitch); p- purl; patt- pattern; pm- place marker; rep-repeat;  sm- slip marker; st(s) - stitches; x- times; yf- yarn forward (bring the yarn forward when making a knit stitch to make an eyelet hole - increases by 1 stitch); yo- yarn over (bring yarn around needle to make an eyelet hole - increases by 1 stitch)


With smaller needles, CO 48 sts.  Place stitch marker to mark beg of rnd.  Distribute evenly over 4 dpn's (12 sts/dpn).  Join and work k2 x p1 rib for 1½". 

Begin Cables-and-Lace Pattern:

Change to larger needles.
Rnd 1:  *p1, k2tog, yf, k2tog, yo, p1, k6; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 2 (and all even rnds):  *p1, k4, p1, k6; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 3:  *p1, (yf, k2tog) 2x, p1, k6; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 5:  Rnd 1.
Rnd 7:  Rnd 3.
Rnd 9:  *p1, k2tog, yf, k2tog, yo, p1, C6L; rep from * to end of rnd.
Rnd 11:  Rnd 3.
Rnd 12:  Rnd 2.
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.)
Next Rnd:  Work Rnd 5 of Cables-and-Lace patt to 1st thumb marker, remove marker, k1, sl 18 sts onto scrap yarn, k1, remove 2nd thumb marker, k2, work Cables-and-Lace patt to end.
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.
