Old Norse for “Fern”, Bräcken features a simple but gorgeous cable that creates the shaping for the fingerless hand warmer.

Wear alone or pair with the fine-gauge fingered gloves.
Equally beautiful with a fitted gusseted thumb and embellished with a wide button band. What a fabulous way to show off those big vintage buttons.

Spoil your hands and knit these up in a luscious cashmere or silk blend wool. Better yet, spoil someone else! These will make the perfect gift this winter for your dearest friend.

These gloves will fit an average sized hand. The fine-gauge fingered glove has positive ease, so will fit a wide range of hands. The hand warmer has built in shaping and no thumb gusset, so will fit small to large sized hands. If you are wanting a warmer that is sized Extra large, you may want to go up a needle size.

Pattern is charted and also includes written instructions for cable chart.
