“Textured Tam” Wristers


Pattern created by Nancy Taylor to match “Textured Tam” in the book 60 Quick Knits (pg. 91).

Note 1: I used a lightweight knitting worsted, such as the weight of “Red Heart Sparkle.”
Note 2: You may want to use a smaller needle (size 6) if using a heavier knitting worsted.

Materials:
1. Lightweight knitting worsted
2. One set (4) size 7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed needles (dpns) [or size 8, if you want a larger wrister; I’ve made them on both sizes, but prefer the size 7]
3. Cable needle (cn)
4. Stitch markers (2)

Glossary:

1. 4-st RC: Slip 2 sts to cn and hold to back, k2, k2 from cn.

2. M1 (Make 1): Insert the right needle through the back of the stitch below the stitch on the left needle. Place the stitch on the left needle and knit it through the back loop (1 inc.).

Cast on 38 stitches and distribute over three needles as follows: 13 sts, 12 sts, 13 sts.
Join, being careful to not twist the stitches.

Do 6 rows of (k1, p1) rib, then begin pattern.

Pattern:
Keep first 13 sts and last 13 sts in the following seed stitch:

Rows 1 & 2: p1, k1

Rows 3 & 4: k1, p1

Rpt these 4 rows for seed stitch, making certain the pattern matches where the rounds
start and stop (at joining of first 13 sts and last 13 sts).

For the middle 12 stitches, keep to the following cable panel:

Row 1: k2, p2, k4, p2, k2
Row 2: k2, p2, k4, p2, k2
Row 3: k2, p2, 4-st RC, p2, k2
Row 4: k2, p2, k4, p2, k2

Rpt these 4 rows for cable panel.

Continue in established pattern until you reach the fourth Cable Panel Row 3 (the cable row), then begin the gusset for the thumb.

When gusset is complete, continue in pattern (seed st over first and last 13 sts, cable panel over middle 12 sts) for six more rows, ending with a Cable Panel Row 4 (should have 9 twists).

Do 5 rows in (p1, k1) rib, bind off, weave ends.

Left thumb gusset:

Row 1: Across first 13 sts: Seed st for first 7 sts, place marker, M1, k2, M1, place marker, seed st over remaining four sts.

Keep the rest of the sts in pattern (cable panel, seed st) to end of row.

Row 2: Seed st to first marker, slip marker, knit to next marker, slip marker, seed st to cable panel.

Keep the rest of the sts in pattern (cable panel, seed st) to end of row.

Row 3: Rpt. row 2

Keep the rest of the sts in pattern (cable panel, seed st) to end of row.

Repeat these three rows, slipping markers each time, until you have 12 sts between the markers, ending on a Gusset Row 3.

Next row: Bind off the 12 sts between the markers, remove markers (11 sts on needle).

Next row: Seed st for first 7 sts, cast on 2 sts, seed st for 4 sts (13 sts on needle).

Left thumb gusset complete.


Right thumb gusset:

Keep first 25 sts in pattern (seed st, cable panel), then:

Row 1: Across last 13 sts (on third needle): Seed st for first 4 sts, place marker, M1, k2, M1, place marker, seed st over remaining 7 sts.

Keep first 25 sts in pattern (seed st, cable panel), then:

Row 2: Seed st to first marker, slip marker, knit to next marker, slip marker, seed st to end of row.

Keep first 25 sts in pattern (seed st, cable panel), then:

Row 3: Rpt. row 2

Repeat these three rows until you have 12 sts between the markers, end on a Gusset Row 3.

Next row: Bind off the 12 sts between the markers, remove markers (11 sts on needle).

Next row: Seed st for first 4 sts, cast on 2 sts, seed st for 7 sts (13 sts on needle).

Right thumb gusset complete.
