Jenn Wisbeck These gloves are a cinch to make! The simple braided cable gives a touch of style to an otherwise normal pair of wrist warmers, and the angora/wool blend used for these gloves gives them a nice vintage feel, plus lots of warmth!
You can substitute any worsted weight wool yarn, you will need about 100 yards, though I would say 110 to be safe! Using a wool or wool blend yarn will be best to show cables and prevent unnecessary stretching and bagging of the gloves. Plus wool wicks away moisture quite nicely!
This is a very, very old pattern from Midnightsky Fibers (back when there was only a teeny tiny website and blgo!) so sadly only so-so pictures remain of the original cabled wrist warmers- but the directions have been rewritten for easier following along!

Jenn Wisbeck Reindeer prance and birds flock across the winter landscape in these short wrist warmers. One wrist warmer has two reindeer- one on each side of the wrist-playing in amongst the snowflakes. The other wrist warmer has birds flocking to a tree on each side.
