These wrist warmers are inspired by Lithuanian beaded wristers that I saw on BritKnitCast website, hosted by Carrie Anne Dennison, who attended Woolfest last year. When I designed them, I was not sure if they were a traditional Lithuanian design, but I have since found out that these are part of the traditional Lithaunian national costume. They are called riešinės (wristbands) in Lithuanian. They are often made in garter stitch with beaded patterns, but are also made in circular knitting with colorwork, lace, and cable patterns.
