Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl
  • Alternating between working in the round, and flat, and back again
  • Using DPNs or other small circumference knitting

Pattern Description:

These are really cozy and warm, and I love the Valley Yarns Northampton Sport used. The texture is really fun, and pulls in nicely to hug my cold wrists.

I've included written instructions as well as a chart for the pattern. The skills involved are really quite basic, just knit and purl and some increases and decreases. You do have to keep track of where you are in pattern or on the chart, but stitch markers can help with that.

Small takes 1 skein of Northampton Sport, larger two sizes take 2.

27 sts/3.5" (8.9 cm) in Bias Ladder
pattern (9 st repeat)
40 rows/4" (10cm) in Bias Ladder
pattern (18 row repeat). Row gauge is
not crucial.

Materials:

  • US 4 DPNs (or size needed to obtain gauge)
  • Stitch markers (optional)

Suggested yarn:

164 yards of Sport weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:
