FO Gaiters for Me!
The cable pattern is Close-Woven Basket Lattice knitted in Patons Classic Wool Merino.

Cables are knitted every other row, somewhat insane but I absolutely cables. I converted the cable pattern from knitting flat to knitting in the round; fortunately DH taught me how to chart patterns on Excel. I used the knitted cast-on and bound off using No-Flare Bind Off.

Oh, very nicely done. The cable work and the finishing are beautifully knit, Claire and perfect timing.
