Pattern Description:

My friend Theresa VanderMeer runs an organization called The Lotus Odyssey that exports fair-trade products from different eco/people-friendly groups in India. She is starting a foundation called WORK+SHELTER that will offer women living in the slums of New Delhi a fresh start. Theresa is working to give these women decent living conditions and a chance to build a better future. WORK+SHELTER will be a safe place where women can come with their children to live and work. She will be providing training, materials, and a fair wage, and members of WORK+SHELTER will be producing products to be sold in boutiques around the world.

Theresa asked me to design garments and accessories that will be hand knit by the women living and working at WORK+SHELTER. These cozy hand warmers are one of those items! By purchasing this pattern you are helping this amazing cause. Read more about this project here, donate by emailing Theresa at theresavm@gmail.com, and when someone compliments you on your new hand warmers, be sure to tell them about WORK+SHELTER.

Good Very quick easy pattern  July 25, 2013


Very easy pattern to follow. The yarn I used made them bulkier than the picture here. I'll make again using a finer wool
