Whirligig Wrist Warmers
These wrist warmers are a super quick knit and will keep your hands toasty warm while doing all your essential fall activities! Take them apple picking, enjoy hot apple cider, and a hayride.
The Whirligig Wrist Warmers, or fingerless mittens, are inspired by the enchanting whirligig seeds of the maple trees. One of my favorite activities as a mom is to tug the whirligig seeds from the maples and toss them up … up in the air as the kids watch them float back to the earth. Embrace some fall magic as you knit this quick stash busting project.
