Toasty warm hands!
Pattern: Hand/Wrist Warmers by Joelle Hoverson
From: Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Paton's Jet (wool/alpaca) 1 x 50g skein
Needles : 4mm DPNs
Mods: The pattern is written for 20cm circulars. A thumb hole is created by knitting back and forth on 2 circulars.
I did these on DPNs and added a thumb by the same method as Fetching.
I love this yarn. Definitely my favourite at the moment. I heard this horrible horrible rumour that it's being discontinued. Gasp. I am in denial, just hoping that's not the case!! Its a dream to knit and is lovely and warm. There will be no more cold hands for me on the morning walks now! I really love the variegations in this particular shade - so pretty.
The wrist warmers are perfect for keeping my hands nice and warm while I get on and knit DH a man pair...
