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.

Instructions are both charted and written. Format allows for easy two-at-a time knitting.
