Some time ago now, I promised to post a picture tutorial of Fingerless Glove Emanelle. I was procrastinating because first of all it is a whole lot of work to get this done and secondly I didn’t think anybody would care, really.
So here goes, Chloe, especially for you, your granddaughters, and all other knitters who are interested…

Some very quick Cable Basics
Have you seen my first little tutorial on Cable Basics? If not please click here before continue reading.
In my first tutorial, we touched cables when holding your cable needle in front of your work.
Now we are going to see what happens when we hold the cable needle in the back of your work
When the patterns says: “Slip 3 stitches onto cable needle and leave at back, knit 3, then knit 3 from cable needle” this is what you have to do:
Leave your cable needle at the back of your work, ignore it and just knit the next three stitches. After you did that you are going to knit those 3 “ignored stitches” from your calbe needle. By doing this you are actually twisting stitches
Now put your cable needle aside, cruise for a bit untill it is time to twist again and this is what you will see:
What is the difference between holding your cable needle in the front of your work and holding your needle in the back of your work, you may wonder? Take a look at this:
The first photo shows what happens when you hold your needle in front of your work, the second photo shows what happens when you hold your needle in the back of your work:
Cable Needle in front creates a left slanting twist.
Cable Needle in back creates a right slanting twist.
For more cable tutorials go to:
Knittinghelp.com and watch Amy Finlay’s excellent tutorial video on cables!
You will find it in the “Advanced Technique” tab and then go to “decorative stitches”. I learned how to do cables from Amy’s video.
Plaited Cables are merely a combination of right slanting and left slanting twists. This creates a cable which looks like it is braided. It may look difficult at first, but fear not, it is actually very easy…

See your work grow and grow:
Last step is seaming the glove! Start seaming from the top down. Remember when you ribbed for 4 rows? That is your top. So start there. If you don’t know how to seam, go to knittinghelp.com and watch Amy Finlay’s excellent video tutorial on the mattress stitch. Scroll down her page untill you hit the “finishing” section and click on the mattress stitch!
