Cabled Gauntlets

I really wanted to make fingerless gloves to match my headband, but I didn’t want to deal with the individual fingers. I found a pattern for cabled gauntlets, but I didn’t like the gusset design; so I merged my favorite mitten pattern with the cabled gauntlet pattern and came up with these:

Ingredients:
1 skein Universal Yarn Classic Shades worsted in Grapevine
Size 7 doublepoint needles
Darning needle
Waste Yarn


Cable round:
*K1, P2, slip 3 to cable needle and hold in back, K3, K3 from cable needles, P2, K1*

Cast on 36 stitches and divide them evenly on three needles (12 on each).
Knit 5 rows in seed st.
Rounds 1-6: *K1, P2, K6, P2, K1* repeat ** around (non-cable pattern)
Round 7: cable round

Repeat rounds 1-7 five times, or until glove is the right length for you

Repeat rounds 1-4 one more time

Part 2, the gusset:

Round 1: K1, P2, K3, make 1, K1, make 1, knit the rest of the round, continuing the cable pattern. Rearrange stitches so the M1, K1, M1 is at the end of a double point, not the middle.
Round 2 and all even rounds: K cable pattern
Round 3: M1, K3, M1, knit till end of round with cable pattern
Round 5: M1, K5, M1, knit till end of round with cable pattern
Continue in this method, making new stitches every other round, till you’ve reached
Round 11: M1, K11, M1 and knit till end of round with cable pattern. You may need to add another doublepoint.
*The non-gusset stitches pattern would look like this:
K 2 rounds in non-cable pattern
K round 7
K rnds. 1-7*
When the gusset is the right number of stitches, Knit 4 rows of non-cable pattern. The gusset should be knit in stockinette stitch.
Put the 13 gusset stitches on waste yarn
Cast on 1 stitch and K5 rows in non-cable pattern
Seed stitch 6 rows and cast off.

Thumb:
Transfer gusset stitches to three doublepoints. Pick up 2 stitches where the crotch of the thumb will be. You can pick up more than two if it will make fewer holes, just be sure to knit them together on the first round.
Knit 2 rounds
Seed stitch 2 rounds
Cast off

Weave in ends

One thought on “Cabled Gauntlets”

  1. Thank you so much for the beautiful pattern. I just finished the first glove in Lion Brand Landscapes, color Sand Dune, about six beautiful shades of brown. I will probably try the yarn you used for my next pair.
