Four Strand Cable Mitts

My first fingerless gloves with a cable pattern. I like the way the four strands cabling looks like a pinwheel.

Thumb gusset:

I started in row 46, i.e. the 3rd time I reached Row 10 of the pattern. The thumb "grows" from one of the purl channels - while knitting the thumb gusset, continue with the cable pattern.
When you reach the first purl channel:
Row t1: m1 (purlwise) p1 m1 (purlwise)
Row t2: purl 3
Row t3: m1 (purlwise) p3 m1 (purlwise)
Row t4: purl 5
Row t5: m1 (purlwise) p5 m1 (purlwise)
Row t6: purl 7
Row t7: m1 (purlwise) p7 m1 (purlwise)
Row t8: purl 9
Row t9: m1 (purlwise) p9 m1 (purlwise)
Row t10: purl 11
Row t11: m1 (purlwise) p11 m1 (purlwise)
Row t12: purl13
Row t13: m1 (purlwise) p13 m1 (purlwise)
Row t14: purl 15
Row t15: place 15 purl stitches on stitch holder, make one (to form the p1 of the pattern) and continue with cable pattern.

Thumb:
After binding off, place 15 sts from stitch holder on two dpns and pick up 5 stitches from the row above and the sides.
- purl one round
- purl one round up to the last stitch (you have now finished knitting 4 of the 5 stitches on the upper needle)
p2tog p13 p2tog (this is to avoid gaps between thump and main piece)
- purl two more rounds and bind off.

Weave in ends.
