Basic Skills Necessary:

  • you need to know how to cast on, knit, purl, decrease, and work in colorwork

Pattern Description:

This is a full color PDF with charts for each size, large pictures, and clear directions.

These wrist warmers are easy to knit from the top down in a dk weight yarn. The long ribbed cuffs cover most of your fingers. These are great as a beginning colorwork project because the simple repeating motifs over 5 stitches are easy to remember.

Stitches for the thumb are cast on and then decreased over the course of the chart, with the ribbing picked up and knit after the main section is finished. If this is one of your first colorwork projects, choose two colors of yarn that contrast nicely with each other so they are easy to tell apart.
