You guys tired of seeing me use this pattern yet? Tough. I still have a bunch of ’em to post, ha HA!This was the third pair of mitts I made, and of course it’s once again heavily modified. The cable comes from somewhere within Harmony Guides: Cables & Arans, but I never noted what page it was on. It is a much bigger cable than the one Sharon originally wrote in the pattern. Because of that, after I stuck the thumb gusset on a stitch holder and did a few rounds and tried them on, it pulled on the design something fierce. Therefore, this is the first pair of gloves that I did not do symmetrically as written, and I pushed the cable over a bit away from the thumbs.
Of note, I did these as a request for my pole dance instructor, and I was paid $20 for them. Totally worth it, especially considering I had to rip the darn things once. I wouldn’t charge that much for a pair of these in acrylic yarn, though, and I think I’d charge more if the yarn included something like silk or angora. I think it’s a fair price for a super soft merino wool, though!
