Join in the round, place stitch marker for start of row

Cuff:

Work 10 rows of 3×3 rib

Work 4 rows of Stockinette Stitch (knit every row when knitting in the round since there is no knitting done on the “wrong side” of work)

Begin Cable pattern:

Row 1: K21, P2, slip 4 to cable needle & hold to front of work, K4, K4 from cable needle, P2, K3

Rows 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8: K21, P2, K8, P2,K3

Repeat these 8 rows a second time

Begin Thumb Gusset:

Work row 1 of cable pattern

Row 2: K3, place marker, M1, place marker, K18, P2, K8, P2, K3

Continue working in pattern, remove markers and slip the 11 stitches onto a stitch holder and continue knitting joining back into the round. Complete the pattern repeats to row 8 and then knit row 1 (to add the last cable). BO
