The pattern includes both charts for the cables and written instructions, so however you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern also includes a photo tutorial for a super stretchy cast on called the Estonian cast-on for the bottom of the glove and the backward loop cast-on. The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. These additional techniques are used: cables and picking up stitches.
