The old-fashioned look of gingham is given a fresh new feel in these lovely wristwarmers. The top and bottom are exact reverse images of each other, and in fact, the wristwarmers can be flipped upside-down if you want the opposite colour on top – or wear one upside-down and one right-side up, whatever strikes your fancy! The bamboo yarn used to make the model wristwarmers shown here gives a fabric with a lovely softness, shimmer and drape, without being too hot; but any fibre will work nicely, depending on how cold you expect it to be!

Finished measurements

Pattern gives instructions for three circumferences (small, medium, large) and two lengths (short, long), for a total of six sizes. Model shown is size long medium.

  • short small: 5” length, 6” outer circumference
  • long small: 7.25” length, 6” outer circumference
  • short medium: 5.75” length, 7” outer circumference
  • long medium: 8” length, 7” outer circumference
  • short large: 5.75” length, 8” outer circumference
  • long large: 8” length, 8” outer circumference

The fabric is fairly thick, so the inner circumference is approximately 0.75” smaller than the outer.

Yarn requirements

  • short small: approximately 60 yards of each colour
  • long small: approximately 80 yards of each colour
  • short medium: approximately 82 yards of each colour
