Calm your day with my newest knitting pattern…Calming Cables Fingerless Gloves. You can choose to knit the cabled pattern or a ribbed pattern with 2 different lengths to knit. One skien of the Malabrigo Rios yarn used will make 2 to 3 sets of fingerless gloves depending on the style and length you choose. The Calming Cables is a classic design that can be made with various types of yarns of worsted weight. Change it up throughout the year with different yarns to suit the seasons.
Malabrigo Rios is a worsted weight yarn that is hand painted in beautiful colours. I used the Solis on the teal set, Zaramora for the second set and Liquadambar on the last set.
My inspiration for the Calming Cables Fingerless Gloves was the hand painted yarns I used to make them. The colours and texture mix of the cables enhanced the design making it a classic choice for anyone to wear. Make them in a cool cotton for the warmer days and add the warmth of merino wool or other fibres in cooler days.
I love working with hand painted yarns that have been lovingly painted by various Artists adding another dimension and a special touch to each skein of yarn. I wanted to design a more simple pattern that you could knit when you wanted to calm your busy day, yet still interesting enough to carry you along to the finished state. The best part is watching how all the colours come alive with the texture and style of the design. Cables are a wonderful way to enhance hand painted yarns.
