Little Warmers


I think this is the Last Pair of Wristwarmers for a while ... :)
These I made Little for My Three year Old Grandaughter Paige..." Hi Page... Grandma Loves You :) "
I know she will want to wear these like her big Sisters will be wearing...
They came out real cute... Would you like the pattern I made up for them ??? OK

I used worsted weight and #7 needle... Cast on 30 stitches
*K1-P2-K2-P2- K2-P2-k1-P6-k1-P2-K2-p2-K2-P2-K1*
Repeat knitting the knit sts and purling the purl sts each row for 7 rows..
8th Row- repeat row but twist the 6 cable stitches.... ( slip 3 in front and knit 3 , then knit the 3 slipped sts ) I do mine.. The no cable needle way................... Like This....
I did the cable twist row 2 times .. Then I did the pattern for 5 more rows... Then I did a K1 P1 rib for 6 rows and Binded Off :)
When seaming the side don't forget to leave a space for the thumb.. I started just after the rib and left about 1 inch or more ....
These are for a Three Year Old ....

Very sweet... Now Mom'll have to turn them into "idiot-warmers" so she won't lose them. I'd hate for only one wrist to get cold... Not to be devil's advcate here, but I know the way my son goes through mittens and gloves...

Hi! Love your wristwarmers!! I think I'll try them with some pretty variegated silk/wool I picked up at Rhinebeck recently. I've never made them before. Do I just use the pattern you've given but make them bigger than for a 3 year old?
Also, I was wondering about your reasoning for all that ribbing near the hand. Is that for practical reasons as the hand area gets a lot of stretching while wearing? Does the ribbing help them keep their shape better?
thanks for any help and advice,
