I usually don't post all the specs/info on a project until it's an FO but I had so many compliments on my cabled wristers in my email and comments, ALL clamoring for the pattern!
So I hurried up and have a FO just for your viewing pleasure :)
Fingerless Mitts (thanks Petra!)
Just over 1 skein of RYC Cashsoft DK in Clementine (uber yummy yarn, thanks Rowan!)
US #2 (2.75 mm) Aero Teflon DPNs
Mods: I had this pattern in my files but I really took notice when I saw them in all their tweedy goodness over at Dave's In fact, I liked em so much I *borrowed* his mods and modified them even more! (thanks Dave!)
The original pattern has the cabled motif over the wrist but I preferred Dave's idea of having the cables on the back of the hand instead. Instead of starting the thumb gusset 15 rows into the motif, I knit an additional 10 rows of the 2x2 rib (40 total) then worked the thumb gusset as written when I began the cables
When the cable motif was complete I knit an additional 15 rows in 2x2 rib and then one additional decrease row where I k2tog 8 times evenly spaced to prevent flaring of the bind off. I then bound off in knit which I prefer to binding off in ribbing.
I picked up 2 additional stitches for the thumb (19 stitches total) and knit 14 rows of stockinette before binding off.
I also slightly upsized the wristers for fluffy hands by using DK weight yarn rather than the sportweight the pattern suggests.
Clearly, it takes a village to knit *perfect* wristers! :)
