Good afternoon everyone! Sorry for the delay between my posts, I have been busy getting a new job! Whoo hoo! But we’re not here to talk about how well I’m adulting, we’re here here to discuss my new wrist warmer pattern.
So…every year my boyfriend and I go to the Southern Californian Renaissance Faire, you know, like a bunch of nerds. We go all out…like I have a corset and he has armor type of all out. Well anywho, it was rainy and cold for opening weekend and my outfit is built for SoCal temperatures. No good! So I needed a quick solution to make my costume more weather ready. So I thought and thought and then boom, wrist warmers that come up to the elbow. The pattern I came up with is simple and easy, I fact, I finished both in 2 days with the many interruptions of life. The pattern is designed for a smaller person, such as myself, but could be adjusted to be larger by simply adding on multiples of 4 for the CO and increasing the button hole size. So without further delay, here it is.
On size 6 needles, knitted in the round, with worsted weight yarn.
CO 36 sts & join in the round
R1-R5: K2, P2
R6-71 (or until you have your desired arm length): K
R72: Create an 8 stitch, one row button hole for your thumb and then K the rest of the round
R75-80: K2, P2
Bind off and weave in ends
So there you have it! Told you it was easy! I hope they keep you as warm as they kept me! Until next time…
