What I mean by under construction is that this pattern has NOT been test knit by anyone but myself.  I am currently looking for test knitters and will update and correct the pattern as needed.

This pattern is written in four sections. The cast on and top border, the main body, the bottom border and cast off, and the thumb.  I worked the pattern in Cascade Fixation , knit on US 4 3.5mm double point needles

The Cast on and top border

Cast on 38 Stitches on 4 needles.

2 needles of nine stitches each for the front, 2 needles of 10 stitches each for the palm side.

I used the long tail cast on method.

The Main Body

Cable Pattern

Combine the two sets of nine stitches to one needle. This will be needle one.

Purl 6 stitches, move three stitches to a cable needle. These will be held in the front for one glove, and the back for the other glove. Knit three stitches, then knit the three stitches from the cable needle. Purl six stitches. (This is the cable pattern)

On Needle two knit 2 purl 2, knit 6. (Or Knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 6)

On Needle three Knit 6 purl 2 knit 6. (Or Knit 6, purl1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 1)

The pattern on needles two and three remain the same for the body of the glove, unless otherwise specified.

Plain PatternIMG_20110102_181206

On  needle one Purl 6 stitches, knit six stitches, purl six stitches. (This is the plain pattern)

On Needle two knit 2 purl 2, knit 6.

On Needle three Knit 6 purl 2 knit 2.

(At this point you should have worked one cable pattern round, and one plain pattern round)

Repeat plain pattern for 4 more rounds.

On the seventh pattern round, do a round of the cable pattern.

Repeat the plain pattern on the next 6 rounds

On the fourteenth pattern round, do a round of the cable pattern.

{For an extra long palm portion, repeat the 6 plain pattern round and a cable pattern round before proceeding to next step (+7 to all future row counts)}

The next round (seventeenth) is also in plain pattern, with the exception that:

Either the last two stitches of  Needle three or the first two stitches of needle two are placed onto a holder. (One makes a left thumb, one a right)

At this point it will not be possible to knit in the round, so you have to knit as if it were knit flat.
