Isn’t this cable pattern just lovely? I know these look very narrow on the needles, but all that ribbing makes for a wonderfully elastic piece. I like knowing they’ll be snug around my wrists because that’s the part that always gets cold for me.
These really do manage a great combination of cozy and elegant. They would make lovely gifts, but I plan on keeping them for myself. The great thing about Arlene’s pattern, though, is that you can get TWO pairs from one skein--one to give and one to keep. That’s my kind of knitting--everybody wins.
Lucky for you, that always makes for entertaining reading.
