<i>A quick and portable project for the cooler days ahead. A basic garter stitch tube is transformed to a wristwarmer/gauntlet, dressed up with chain stitch edges and short row peaks.

The reds/pinks/blues version shown below use Noro Kureyon with a solid color of another yarn for contrast.

The green and teals model features Noro Cash Island and Cash Iroha which create bands of color, sometimes contrasting, sometimes echoing each other but always harmonious. Two colorways of Noro Kureyon would provide a similar effect. These wristwarmers are an excuse to experiment with color!

The springy nature of garter stitch and the flaring created by the short row peaks allows this wrist warmer to fit many shapes and sizes.

Eda means charming and well-mannered in Turkish - you’ll feel cozy, too.</i>
