    I'm doing something wrong and I can't figure out what! My center four cables look like straight lines instead of looking twisted like the picture...any ideas? Thanks!

    1. I almost had the same problem, Lindsey. On your row 5, when you do the BPDC into the 4 TC, be sure to start with the top crossing two TC then you have to kind of go under those to get at the TC that are crossed under. It's a little tricky, but will make sense and keep your cable crossed. Hope this helps!

  4. I just finished these. I love them! I did have to pay attention to every few stitches when working in the back post until I got the hang of it. Quick pattern. Thank you.

  5. Hello! I love this pattern. This was the very first time I was able to read a pattern and figure it out by myself without having a more experienced crocheter read it and show me how to do it. LOL. I've made a pair for myself and some family members, and they love them! Now THEIR friends are asking for me to make them some. I wanted to ask permission to make them and sell them to friends and maybe online. Thank you so much for such a great pattern!

  6. Hi!

    I am having a go at these wrist warmers. It is a beautiful pattern. Thank you for posting it.

    I do have a bit of trouble understanding the final part of the instructions however. I am not sure how to do the final edging (on opposite end of wrist warmer).

    Could you kindly elaborate a bit on those instructions? I am not sure about several things:
    - Do I have to single crochet in all chain stitches, all around the glove?
    - Do I make the single crochet into both strands of the stitch or only into one strand?
    - Do I insert the hook from the inside of the glove to the outside? Or the other way around?
    - Do I have to do multiple rounds? How many?
    - If there are multiple rounds, do I make the second round into both strands of the single crochet or only into one strand (e.g. the back loop only)?

    Thank you in advance! I am dying to finish these beautiful wrist warmers and start using them.

  7. While following this pattern, I exclaimed to my husband: "I love her. She is amazing. This is the best pattern to follow. I'm in love." He rolled his eyes but was impressed with the finished product, as was my sister for whom I made them. Thank you so much for this pattern!

  8. This was the first pattern I've used since starting to crochet. I've made hats and played around with stitches, but no patterns until now. I had to look up a picture for how to do the FPDC and BPDC stitches (because I'm still seriously a beginner) and misread the pattern for a while, doing dc instead of tc in the crossover rows... That, I found out, was a LOT harder than doing the tc. My left glove didn't turn out as nicely as my right, after I got in a little bit of trial and error, but all in all I'm extremely pleased with how they turned out and plan to make many more pairs as gifts. :) thanks for a great pattern!

  9. I have done the left glove, and my cross stitches lean to the left instead of the right!!!! What am I doing wrong???? thanks love the pattern anyway.

  13. I'm working on the second wrist warmer now! The left hand came out awesome, and the right is working up quicker than before. I love your pattern. It is very easy to understand. Thanks for sharing it with us! I know this is an old post, but wrist warmers are still "in" today and I am whipping up a few of these for Christmas gifts! I may contact you later about getting some in my Etsy shop. Thanks again for the pattern!

  14. Thanks b so much!!!! I was looking for a great free crochet pattern, as I exhausted my crochet budget this month. Lol.

  15. I'm just finishing the left-hand warmer & I'm having the same issue as Lindsey Schutter above... my 4 center cables are straight, just like the 2 cables on either side. I'd appreciate help :)

  18. Hi! This is such a beautiful pattern! I just made some in an earthy brown color and I just love them! Thank you for making this pattern, it is the absolute best technique for crochet cables I have ever seen!!
    I was wondering if I could post the pictures of the warmers I made onto my blog. I could put a link to your post and I wouldn't put the pattern on my blog, just the pictures. I was also wondering if I could sell a couple of them at a craft show in my town.
    Thank you again!

  19. Hi! I'm excited to crochet my first fingerless gloves. I have a question on the pattern, though, hopefully you are still reading comments on this pattern. In row 3, we do 10 hdcs, then are told to do 2 bpdcs into the next two hdcs. But the next two stitches are fpdcs, not hdcs. Are we supposed to do the bpdcs into the fpdcs? Or are we supposed to reach down to the hdcs from the first row and stitch around those posts?

    I apologize if I'm misreading the pattern.

  20. Hi, I absolutely love these! I just made a second pair and I worked them in the round to avoid a seam up the back and really like that technique. Thanks for sharing your pattern. :)

  21. Thanks for this pattern, I've made a pair for me out of gorgeous soft baby alpaca yarn, and have nearly finished three more pairs to give as Christmas gifts :)

    I did modify the pattern slightly for the edging - I didn't reserve 80 inches at the start. Instead when it came to the edging, I did the two rows of slip stitch across the top, then sc to join the sides together (instead of sewing), and then did the row of sc at the wrist end. It was simpler and made for less ends to sew in at the end, and that can only be a good thing, lol! Just sharing in case this is of use to anyone else :)

    Thanks again for a lovely pattern - a pleasure to make and to wear :)

  22. I loved this pattern so much, I made a lot of them last year. This year I would like to share them with the Spanish-speaking crocheters. Do you give me your permission to translate the pattern to Spanish and post it on my blog (El taller de Aracne)? I'd link back to you.

    Thank you!

  25. Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me how to make these bigger. I tried it on and I couldn't even wrap it all the way around my wrist. I do not have fat hands or wrists. Could I add a few more HDC to both sides or will that mess up where the cables land on the hand? Instead of 10 on both sides maybe 12 HDC? Then I guess I need to figure out where to do the increases. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
