12th Doctor Gloves

As soon as I saw this image online I knew I had to make these gloves. Of course, as is the way of things when I'm trying to knit something I saw on television or from a photo, there doesn't seem to be a picture available with the angle I need. Since I'm impatient I couldn't resist tackling this pattern anyway! I've tried two cable versions, both of them variations on the horseshoe cable. This one seemed to be the closest. I'm offering up my rough version below:

12th doctor gloves

This is a pretty rough take on the 12th Doctors gloves picture that has been floating around the internet. It’s pretty tough to tell what exactly is going on with these suckers but I took a stab at it! Hopefully you enjoy this pattern! I’m sure there will be some modifications as more pictures leak or the episode comes out.
