Knitting pattern: cable cuff fingerless glittens (Giselle)

I am possibly the worst person in the world when it comes to gloves: I hate having cold hands but I can’t stand to have the tips of my fingers covered. So I figured knitting myself a pair that dealt with all my ‘glove quirks’ was the way forward. These have a long thumb so as to cover it all but not ‘seal it in’, so to speak. They’re fingerless, hence easier 😉 And the mitten flap is long enough to cover my fingers with wiggle room so my fingers don’t get claustrophobic… Click on for the pattern, which I am subnaming ‘Giselle’ because the colourway reminds me a little of the second act *sigh*

Wooooooohoooooo!
