Wristwarmers pattern - FREE-



I have finished knitting Kiann's wristwarmer, scarf, hat and cardy. She asked for brown, so that is the colour I have done. Except I have added a flower on the hat and some sparkly beads on the scarf and wristwarmer.

It's starting to get cold and I have many people who have asked me to knit wristwarmers (which I will do for all that have already asked). Wrist warmers are so easy to knit here is the pattern.

It's a freebie....

I have tried to make it really easy, even Amie can follow this, if she were interested!

I have used all wool chunky, but you can mix wool. E.g.
1 strand of chunky or double knit with 1 or 2 strands of lightweight mohair.
For Kiann's wristwarmers I used 2 strands of chunky wool knitted together to make a thicker yarn. As long as you make sure you work through all the yarns for each stitch.

Make 2 the same.

Use 10 1/2 (7mm) needles. Cast on 30 stitches loosely.
Row 1............... Knit 2 *purl 2. knit 2. repeat from* to end.
Row 2...............Purl 2 *knit 2. purl 2. repeat from * to end.
Continue in rib until work measures 6in (15cm) Or longer if you wish.
End with a wrong side row.( purl2.knit2.purl2)

Place thumb....
1st Row.... Pattern 17 stitches, slip the last 4 stitches worked onto a stitch holder, pattern to the end.
2nd " Pattern 13 stitches, cast on 4 stitches. Pattern to the end of the row.
Continue in rib until work measures 1 1/2in (4cm) from thumb opening. Ending with a wrong side row.
Bind off/cast off loosely.

Thumb...........
Cast on 3 stitches with right side of work facing you. Knit 1. purl 2. Knit 1 across 4 stitches on the stitch holder, cast on 3 stitches. You should have 10 stitches.
Next row........Knit 2.( purl 2. knit 2) twice
next row.........Purl 2.(knit 2. purl 2) twice
Repeat the last 2 rows twice more. Bind off/cast off loosely in rib.

Easy Stuff.......

Have fun..... I'm not taking any more wristwarmer orders....... sorry!!!!!!!!

You have me mesmerized. I have some outdated skills, including running lathes, mills, surface grinders, presses, planers, jointers, etc., but your work and directions with the needles have me pushing my jaw up to shut my mute pie-hole.

Oh, yes...what is a wrist warmer?

Er.....
maybe one for the ladies Don.....

Midge, I tried knitting two cold seasons' ago, and could follow direction, or so I thought. If I made a mistake, I was lost. Of the two things I did, a purse/bag and a scarf, the scarf was the hardest! The bag was done on circular needles, and when finished, I felted it. So any mistakes didn't matter...My kind of knitting. Right now, too busy painting, but I love the idea of knitting! You do beautiful things..sigh!!

I do agree with all the ideas you've presented in your post. They're very

convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are
very short for

starters. Could you please extend them a bit from next time?

Thanks for the post.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to

see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My

apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is entirely off topic but I

had to share it with someone!

This design is steller! You definitely know how to

keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your

almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than

that, how you presented it. Too cool!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is

needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog
like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very

internet smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any tips or advice

would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it
