Simple Knit Wrist Warmers

2016-04-12 17.35.24Good 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.
