This is yet another project where I bang my head against the wall when dealing with gauge.
I think it’s pretty much been decided that I have no idea how to measure gauge. You see, this pattern calls for 4mm needles. I worked up a gauge swatch and couldn’t match it, in fact my swatch was too small. I did work out that I needed 5mm to match the gauge.
Not only did the wristers work out to be larger than I wanted, but the cabling repeats had to be halved – the pattern calls for twice as many repeats as I ended up doing, and it’s called for from the thumb gusset. Not many people I know have 10 inch palms.
To make these yourself, you can find the pattern on Ravelry here.
