OK, now you want to work the gloves in reverse stockinette stitch and the cables in stockinette. If you're knitting in the round, knit the cable sts and purl the sts on either side of the cable. If you're working flat, knit the cables, purl the background on the RS or public side of the gloves. Purl the cables and knit the background on the WS or private side.
I couldn't find a picture of the gloves so I'm not sure how many sts are background or how often there are cable turns but the above is the general idea.
