Well, I got all into those fingerless gloves from the summer issue of Knitty and made two pairs…one as a gift and one for me…
I thought they were very fun to knit and I loved the softness of the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino I used. So I decided to make my own version of “fingerless gloves” which I have been calling “wrist-lets”.
I loved the four by one rib, the concept of a cable, and the picot bind off. I wanted mine to look Victorian, maybe with a hint of a corset. Here’s what I came up with:
The purple yarn is a placeholder. I have since threaded a pale yellow ribbon through the yarnovers to “cinch” the wristlets. The cable up the centre is a simple two 4×2 cable (4 stitch cable, 2 row repeat).
I have written up the pattern neatly, if anyone is interested in having it. Just let me know in the comments.
