These gloves are a cinch to make! The simple braided cable gives a touch of style to an otherwise normal pair of wrist warmers, and the angora/wool blend used for these gloves gives them a nice vintage feel, plus lots of warmth!
You can substitute any worsted weight wool yarn, you will need about 100 yards, though I would say 110 to be safe! Using a wool or wool blend yarn will be best to show cables and prevent unnecessary stretching and bagging of the gloves. Plus wool wicks away moisture quite nicely!
This is a very, very old pattern from Midnightsky Fibers (back when there was only a teeny tiny website and blgo!) so sadly only so-so pictures remain of the original cabled wrist warmers- but the directions have been rewritten for easier following along!
