Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy
We live in a remote area where the only toy shop is one side of an aisle in the over-priced grocery store. So when we get a last minute birthday party invite, gifts can be tough to come by. However, there’s a great yarn shop and I have a big stash. I always hope to find a pattern that will appeal to the underage recipients and knit up quick ’n’ easy, or as my daughter says, “easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.” This wrist-warmer has been a real hit with the 6-10 year olds we know.
Though there are 2 styles included in the pattern, it can be easily modified to suit the taste of the kid you have in mind.
