Hi! Here's my contribution to the ever increasing patterns of
cabled wristwarmers. :) I made up the pattern using a cable
chart from Viking Patterns for Knitting. I'm really sick of the
pattern right now as I made too many for Christmas gifts and
this is the last pair (a recent request) hopefully that I will be
making for a bit! :)

Very nice. I really need to get around to trying one of those more intricate cable patterns. I like the thick stripes too :)

They're so pretty - I so know what you mean, though - I love the viking patterns so much that I used them for so many Christmas presents and have had to take a cable break for a while ;-)

They're gorgeous! I never would have thought of doing a cable pattern in a stripe, but it really looks good.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I have no problem sharing the
pattern I just don't know if I can. I mean, the basic pattern I made
up but the cabling pattern is from a book so I don't know if I'm
allowed to share that....anyone know? If I can't share that, I can
tell you exactly what I did and you can do the same! :)

The yarn (http://novita.fi/sys/cms.php?cms_cname=tuotelista&oid=30257&tuoteryhma=30257) (link to the yarn co webpage, click the names on the left
column to see all the types of yarn if your curious what is readily
available in nearly every store in Finland :) is a local Finnish brand and every season they put out some special skeins in some amazing
color combos, this was a wide self-striping pattern. Like a total dork,
I only bought one skein of this particular colorway and then fell in
love with it and wanted to get more and it was all gone. *sigh* live
and learn! I've just seen the spring specials and hopefully budget will
allow some for some spending! :)

I'll write out the pattern as it's just in my head and try to
post at least the basics!
