Easy Wristwarmers

December 1, 2006 at 6:44 pm 7 comments

I use this pattern for almost all the Wristwarmers I make, they make great gifts, and you can make a pair in no time at all.

Yarn: Worsted Weight, about 100 yards. The one in the Picture where made from some Handspun, but I’ve also used Noro Kureyon, and Cascade 220
Needles: US Size 8 Double Pointed Needles, set of 4. One US Size 9 needle (For casting Off)


-Cast on 36 Stitches over 3 DPNs (12 per Needle)
-Knit in Knit 2- Purl 2 ribbing, every round, for 5.5 inches.
-Cast off 6 stitches, knit in esablished rib pattern to end of round.
-When you get back to the place where you casted off, Cast back on 6 stitches using Backward Loop Method, knit in established rib pattern to end of row.
-Knit 2 inches in ribbing.
-Bind off using a US Size 9 needle.

    Great pattern, I love it and will try it. Thanks for sharing. Ya know what would be great with them…. an earwarmer!! Just cast on 15 stitches with the size needles of your choice and knit. Knit until the correct lenght to wrap around your head, cast off and sew it up!! I would use a #8 or 9 needle with worsted weight yarn.

    Another way of making the thumb hole that I find easier is to just stop knitting in the round for a while and instead knit back and forth for about 6-8 rows. Then, just start knitting in the round again. It makes a vertical slit for the thumb vs. the horizontal slit that your method does.
