Brighten your days with these colorful wristwarmers when feeling a bit chilly.
These wrist warmers make for a perfect little -in between projects- project! They are knitted flat, and use a very simple pattern section, so even the beginner knitter can make these. They use up little yarn and little of your time, so you can make these in an afternoon.

Finished measurements:

Bottom of hand warmer (where the wrist should be): 14 cm (5 1/2 inch) wide in the round

Top of hand warmer (where the widest part of your hand should be: 20 cm (8 inch) wide in the round

Height of hand warmer: 12 cm (4 4/5 inch)

Gauge: 10×10 cm(4×4 inch) = 25 stitches x 45 rows in stockinette. The yarn I used is a single ply yarn and slightly thicker than plied sock weight yarn.

Abbreviations:

Kfb: Knit in the front of the stitch, and then in the back of that same stitch, thus creating an increase of one stitch.

RS: right side of work (all uneven numbered rows).

WS: wrong side of work (all even numbered rows).

Ribbing 1×1:

First row (RS): slip the first stitch, *knit one stitch, purl one stitch* repeat from * to the end of the row.

Second row (WS): slip the first stitch, work all stitches how they appear (ie: purl the purl stitches, and knit the knit stitches).

Repeat these two rows.

Stockinette stitch:

first row (RS): slip the first stitch, knit all stitches to the end of the row.

Second row (WS): slip the first stitch, purl all stitches to the end of the row.

Repeat these two rows.

Pattern stitch:

First row (RS): slip the first stitch, knit all stitches to the end of the row.

Second row (WS): slip the first stitch, *knit one stitch, purl one stitch* repeat from * to the end of the row.

Third row (RS): slip the first stitch, knit all stitches to the end of the row.

Fourth row (WS): slip the first stitch, *purl one stitch, knit one stitch* repeat from * to the end of the row.

Repeat these four rows.

  • Step 1

    Pattern:

    Cast on 35 stitches.

    Work rows 1-8 in ribbing 1×1.

    Work rows 9-19 in stockinette stitch: Kfb the uneven numbered (knit) rows for 6 rows in the stitch after the first stitch is slipped, and in the stitch before the last stitch of the row. This way you will increase 2 stitches every knit row for 6 rows. After these increase rows you will have 47 stitches on your needle. You will now continue in stockinette stitch.

    Work rows 19-26 in stockinette stitch. You will end with a purl row.

    Work rows 27-41 in Pattern stitch, ending with a knit row.

    Work rows 42-49 in ribbing 1×1. Bind off all of your stitches very loosely, leaving a long tail to close the side of your hand warmers.

    With a darning needle: using a whip stitch, working from top to bottom, close the side of your hand warmers, leaving only the pattern stitch part open. This is where your thumb will go through.

    Now they are finished! I hope they will bring you joy in cold and dark days, as they do to me. :)
