The Carthorpe mitts by Rachel Coopey uses two mirrored cable patterns with a thumb gusset between them.
For the uninitiated, closed ring stitch markers like the Fripperies & Bibleots' RingOs and Simply Solids, sit on your needle. They are NOT attached to a stitch.
I used one pair of stitch markers to mark where I should be increasing for my thumb gusset, another pair to mark the first cable chart, and another pair to mark the second cable chart...

It means I don't have to count stitches and the markers tell me where I am in the pattern.
For example, when the first cable section should end and when I need to start the second cable section...
|I still managed to get some of the cables wrong though!|
