Braided Gauntlets


I have finished my first pair of mitts, "Symmetrical Braided Guantlets", a free pattern on-line. I used Patons SWS-soy wool stripes, and reversed the cable for the left and right mitts. I had planned these as a co-worker's stocking gift, but may have to keep them for myself, and make another pair.

I've been wanting a pair of cabled mitts, but I still haven't decided what to make for myself.

Are the palms ribbed?
