Throwback Thursday: Cabled Cuff Gloves

Published on Wednesday, 16 November 2016 16:08

I whipped up a pair of fingerless mitts for myself a couple of weeks ago. They're things I tend to make a couple of pairs of each fall/winter, and also tend to lose a few pairs of about as often. Keeping my wrists warm is important to my cold weather life. That's why in looking back at some vintage Twist patterns, this one caught my eye. Remember the Cabled Cuff Gloves, from our premiere issue?

A dense cable over your pulse points is a great way to warm up fast and stay that way. The alpaca in this yarn holds onto warm air, and the wool gives it some stitch definition and bounce.

Stay warm out there folks! Winter is coming.
