Very easy knitted wrist warmer pattern, fiinished with embroidery and buttons…
Knitted Wrist Warmer Pattern in DK yarn. No shaping, so ideally suited to any one with basic knitting and crochet skills.
Materials:1 ball DK yarn (I used Freedom ‘Spirit’ by Twilleys of Stamford) pair 4mm knitting needles (USA 6): 4mm crochet hook: yarn needle
Tension: 22sts and 28 rows over 10cm square
Abbreviations: k: knit, p: purl, st: stitch, sl: slip, rep: repeat, ss: slip stitch, dc: double crochet (English abbreviations)
Cast on 40 st.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: sl 1, purl to last st, k1.
Row 3: sl 1, k to end.
Row 4: sl 1, p to last st, k1.
Rows 5 – 60: Rep rows 3 & 4.
(by slipping the 1st st and knitting the last one on each row you will create a neat even edge which is much easier to sew up, or to pick up stitches)
Cast off knit wise.
To Make Up.
Fold the knitting half vertically right sides together, match the 2 edges and pin. (pinning at right angles to the knitting prevents distortion) stitch from cast off edge for 3cm and fasten off. Measure 6cm from the fastening off point (thumb opening) then stitch to this point from the cast on edge. (using the ‘tails’ from the knitting to stitch with)
Using the 4mm crochet hook, join the yarn at the bottom of the thumb opening with a ss and crochet into the edge, working 10 dc up one side of the opening and 10dc down the other side. Join with a ss and fasten off, crochet or darn in ends.
For the scalloped top, join the yarn with a ss at the seam edge and work 1 dc into same space. *Make 3 ch, miss 2 st, 1 dc into 2nd row down from cast off edge. Rep from * round the the cast off edge and join with a ss. Fasten off and crochet or darn in ends.
