Cabled Wristlets

This project was so easy!  And I’m very satisfied with the results.  I do not own cable needles, but I used this YouTube video to make my cables.  If you go to the Lion Brand pattern page someone left a comment on how to make these so that you could add thumb holes.  I hope you’ll give this pattern a try.  I completed it in 2 days because I could see results after finishing row 6.  Happy knitting!
