Did you know that covering the pulse points on your wrists is a highly effective way of warming up—because that warmed blood will circulate through your body? So, you might want to knit these brightly patterned cuffs and call it a day. Or you might make the whole mitten. Either way, you will have practised working entrelac in the round, and you’ll have warm hands.
