OK, I did another test knit of my new pattern, just to make sure it works :)
This time I used an 8ply (DK) crepe 100% wool, with all the same needles as stated in the pattern.
The result . . .
Love it :) Fits beautifully, and the crepe twist makes the 'cables' stand out more than the other wool did.
I am off to bed now (12.30am here!!), but I will post a photo tomorrow, so you can see the new glove.
On a side note . . . if you like your warmers long, you may want to add in another repeat or two of the pattern, before returing to the rib.
