    This pattern is awesome, and I’m making my fiancee a pair right now, thanks so much! This is my first time making a cable stitch and your pattern made it easy!

    Hi Maddie,

    How do I adjust for a longer hand?

  3. 3 Susie

    How much yarn did you use?

    Hi Maddiey – wow these are just perfect for me – a beginner knitter too (although I am 53!) Thank you for sharing this pattern – I’ve spent ages looking for something with cable down the middle, just like these that I can make for my friends. I like the other mitts you’ve made as well and the lovely scarf. Regards Karen

    Thanks Maddiey! These are great. I’ve been wanting to try cabling for a long while now, but I haven’t wanted to do something too challenging. I’m gonna start on these right after I finish your other pair of fingerlesses!

    Hi there. O.k. … I’m knitting this pattern and I have my little row counter that I adjust after every row – but … I am on row 22 and it says Row 30. I have double checked and I carefully knitted “repeat rows 3 – 6 four more times”. Now if it said six times – I’d be at row 30 – so … do I just skip the 8 rows and adjust my row counter to 30, and then to start with “knit”, when I think that it should be purl, the pattern will continue on the wrong side … so …. what did I do wrong?

    It seems I have done my math wrong, and I can change the pattern accordingly. I haven’t knitted in very long time now, but if you were to just continue with the pattern (& ignore the # rows for now) as it says it should come out fine. After repeating rows 3-6 four times, you should be on the “right side” meaning knit that side. If your side is all purls there is a missing row. I hope this helps!

    Maddie
