Cold Weather Wristies
From Web Page:
A WordPress Exclusive Free Pattern!
The cold weather is pretty much here in SE Michigan and I’ve already started wearing my winter coat and gloves. The one problem that I have, and it happens every year, is cold wrists. That ever present gap between the end of the glove and beginning of the sleeve of my coat. I try to pull the sleeve over the bottom of my gloves, but as soon as I have to move, my wrists end up becoming exposed again. In the past I have tried to squeeze my long fingerless mitts into my gloves, but it’s a tight fit and not very comfortable and the mitts are not large enough to be put on over the gloves.
Last night I decided to make just a pair of simple longish wrist warmers that start at my wrist and covers to just up under the sleeve of my coat and they work wonderfully!
This is a very simple and quick to stitch pattern. I have written it for about a 7-7 1/2 inch circumference and it measures about 5 inches long, but you should be able to customize it fairly easily by adding or subtracting stitches in the first row before joining to work in the round for a larger or smaller circumference and you can also make it any length you would like.
Any size 4/worsted weight yarn will work with this project.
