knitting wrist warmers/fingerless gloves
« on: October 15, 2011, 07:43:04 pm »
I started knitting a pair of wristwarmers last week for myself and ten pairs later I may get to keep these ones.

I made up the pattern myself (very very simple)

If anyone would like the pattern or if a non knitter they would like a pair please ask.

They are great for working with the animals on colder mornings and I'm working on a pattern for a pop over finger cover

Sounds like a brilliant idea.  I tend to push my sleeves up, as I hate them flapping around, and then my wrists get cold.  I'd love the pattern, please. :thumbsup:

I do the same and that is why I wanted some but the shop firstly are expensive and they are sparkly wools and never seem to be what I want.

I have PM'd you the pattern if it isn't clear please tell me.

I'd love the pattern too, please! I'm looking for quick, small things to knit so that I can do them in between everything else - and so I don't get bored!

I have PM'd you Katie.

I am doing stripy ones with some ends of balls of wool. 5 rows of each colour and they look fab.

I maybe slow but I have just found bamboo needles and they are really easy to knit with

I don't knit during the summer just on the dark nights, I must get some crochet hooks and start some of that again too I used to enjoy it when I was younger

Could you PM me the pattern too, please?  I'd like to get back into knitting and this is a very useful project!

I don't suppose you could post the pattern on here?  There seem to be a lot of us wanting it!  (If you don't want to post it, please pm it to me too!  Ta!)

I am not posting it but giving it to individuals as I am actually selling the pattern to others in my shops but thought I would give it free to the 'family' on here

Thank you ellisr for sending me my copy  :wave:.  I will have a pair of them knitted up in no time and they will be a comfort to wear as I'm feeling a bit under the weather at the moment.  It is so kind of you to share.

If you knit them a bit longer and set the thumb hole back to 10cms they coming right up your fingers and you can fold them back when busy, just another idea on the pattern whilst I was playing.

This is my personal pair for plodding about in, I have a longer pair for working outside with
