I have been asked so many times if I made Men’s cable knit wrist warmers, so here they are, fun and practical as always, the same style as the women’s but a bit more manly with a longer cables and longer rib, which can be folded down if you want them a little shorter.
Perfect for texting and using a keyboard, driving and putting petrol in the car without having to take them off, leaving the fingers free whilst keeping your hands and arms toasty and warm.

Small 7 to 8 inch (18 to 20 1/2 cm) hand

Medium 8 to 9 inch (20 1/2 to 23 cm) hand

measure the hand across the knuckles not including the thumb.

Both sizes are 9 inches (23cm) long.

You will need to have a basic knowledge of knitting as this pattern does not teach you how to knit.
You will need to be able to cast on, cast off, knit, purl, follow a simple cable pattern.
You will need
2 x 50 gram balls of Aran weight yarn (10 ply)
One pair of 5 mm knitting needles (US size 8)
A cable needle
A needle to sew up.
