Last autumn, I was very excited to be going on a day trip with my best friends involving lots of shopping, eating out
and cocktails. The temperature was starting to drop, and I thought it was about time I created a smart pair of luxurious handwarmers which would be perfect for the day - keeping me snug while waiting for the train, yet not too
hot in the shops.

These handwarmers are knitted in the round with no shaping and the slot for the thumbhole easily incorporated by knitting it with a length of spare yarn which is later removed to pick up the stitches forming the thumbhole. This method allows for easy pattern continuity.

These handwarmers can be knitted using the magic loop technique or double pointed needles.

The yarn is available as kits (limited supply depending on how many mini skeins wound) and I will be winding more mini skeins of cashmere to put in my shop.
