Yarn-Over, Ligature… Same Difference.
lig·a·ture [lig-uh-cher, -choor] noun. — Printing. a character or type combining two or more letters. (Yarn overs aren't all that different)

[Edited April 29, 2008: Added Pattern and download)
[Edited May 9, 2008: Pattern is being updated for the right-hand side… apparently my instructions of "reverse for right glove" are a bit too ambiguous for some. Stay tuned!)

I knit some cabled arm-warmers for my friend Anna. These were long overdue, and I'm very happy to have them done. We're going to consider them an early birthday present, even though her birthday is in November. The pattern is pretty much my own, and the cable pattern is borrowed from a book even if it is a really simple one. I intentionally off-set the cables and I think they look pretty cool.

    Hi Im used to very detailed French or English patterns forgive my idiocy but im a bit lost on the set up for cable pattern? what does that mean? then the on "every row" directions?? Im sorry for the hastle here.. Just dont know which to follow after my rows of rib ;o)

    I'm sorry for my English which is not perfect (I'm French). I have a doubt on your pattern : you says that the pattern is given for the left hand, but when I look your photos, I think it is the right hand ? Then, for me, the pattern is reversed for the thumb and I think to reserve the 21 second-last stitches ? Plus, how many rows do you knit for the thumb (seems not very long) ?
    I thank you very much for your pattern, these gloves are so nice.

    Hello! I hope to knit these for a friend of mine. Could you please post the detailed instructions for the right glove? What do you mean work in reverse? Thank you

    Should there be an inc on both sides of the k1 between the pm for the thumb gusset?
    Elizabeth Laporte said...
    No, there should not be an increase on both sides of the K1 between the pm for the thumb gusset.
