Long wrist warmers – free pattern!

I’ve finished a pair of new wrist warmers, they’re going to be a gift to someone. If it’s for a birthday or Christmas, I’m not sure yet. Nor am I going to tell who it’s for, there are eyes everywhere! =P

Anyway, I thought I would share the pattern I’ve made, and here it is. If you scroll to the bottom of this post, you can find a downloadable pattern to print out. The PDF file also consist of knitting charts =).
(please let me know if there are some horrible mistakes in the pattern, I’ve gone blind on stitches and cast off’s =P).

Long wrist warmers – multicolored and patterned

IMG_20150330_141624

Needle size : 3mm (knitted on dpn)

Gauge: 10cm x 10cm = 23sts x 30rows

Yarn: any yarn you can use on needle size 3mm, here are some examples of yarn you can use; Drops Alpaca, Drops Fabel, Drops Lace, Drops Kid-Silk, Drops Baby Merino, Drops Safran.

If you copy my wrist warmers down to theIMG_20150327_152521 last row, you need half a skein for each color. If you have another color scheme in mind, you’ll need between 150g and 250g (4-5skeins). If you do like me, and use up leftover yarn from your stash, you should divide you smaller skeins into 2, one for each wrist warmer. This way you’ll get an even divide in your color scheme, without having to worry if you have enough/same amount of yarn for both wrist warmers.

Measuring tip: make the measures while the piece is lying flat. It will stretch a little when you put them on. They measure about 37cm.

The wrist warmers are knitted with 6 different patterns, one for each color. Every new color start starts with a purl round. This round is not included in the patterns. The main parts of the patterns are underlined, and can be repeated as many times as you like.
