(Updated) Twin Rib Warmer Set
About The Design:
This design is practical, yet stylish and easy to work up. The neck warmer is shaped through a change in needle size, to create the gentle shoulder flare. The wrist warmers are in 2 sizes and shaped with a thumb gusset. The fan stitch crochet edging softens the vertical lines and adds femininity.
This design was originally sampled in hand-dyed Targhee wool and cashmere yarns. As these yarns are no longer available, I wanted to re-sample the design in Cascade Yarns beautiful new Cloud and Eco Cloud yarns.
These yarns are very soft, yet, due to their cabled structure, give a slightly terrycloth-like fabric.
The neck warmer is in one size, and the wrist warmers are offered in two sizes. One hank makes the set – what a great way to have luxury accessories on a budget, and be able to make sets as gifts!
