I decided to put a cable on the gloves. Two actually. I have one on each side of the wrist. Every two rows I cross a stitch in on both sides. A purl on the outside of the cable makes the cable stand out better than if I knit.
The inside of the “diamond” is seed stitch. Every other row is a pattern row. The row in between is a plain row with seed stitch only in the center of the diamond.
I think I’ll do a double twist where the sides of the diamonds meet.
