Icelandic Lace Wristwarmers

Nordic Knits 2010: Knitting Patterns Inspired by the 2010 Nordic Knitting Conference
Knitting
October 2010
Various

These wrist warmers were inspired by an Icelandic shawl with lace that reminds me of fish tails. The wrist warmers begin with scallops and end with narrow ribbing. Knit in the round, they look great in one color or more and are a great project for leftover yarns. Instructions are given for lace, fingering, and Shetland/sport/DK weights of yarn.
