Hi friends! This was my small knitting project in Finland. Christmas is getting closer but there is time to knit these easy wrist warmers.
I remember someone saying ‘but who use wrist warmers?!’ I used to think that, too. Now wrist warmers really are in fashion! And if you wear a poncho or something with shorter sleeves, they are very good. I hope you don’t need them for painful wrists as I do.
When I saw this Novita’s Nalle yarn in delicious ‘Ice Cream’ colour, I knew it’s just perfect for wrist warmers. The yarn suggests no 3 needles and fortunately I found them from my mothers needle box.
So lets start!
We need about 100 g yarn and 5 sock needles no 3
- make 12 loops to each of the 4 needles
- knit: 1 knit, 1 purl about 33 rows
- start to increase loops: do this using only knit stitches (no purls), have one centre stitch and make the increase stitches on both sides of that, increase every second row 2 new stitches until you have done 14 new stitches
- finish these stitches, knit around and when you reach the finished stitches, make new stitches so that you have 14 loops in one needle and 12 loops in other three needles
- continue to knit 1 knit, 1 purl about 6 rows and finish the stitches
- pass the yarn ends through the knitting with a big needle and your wrist warmers are ready!
These colours are so sweet and Nalle yarn has also many other beautiful colours. I have also the multicolour and I shall use it for other pair of wrist warmers but with different pattern.
Speaking about colours, I was really happy to read yesterday Debbie’s post. Pantone has announced new colours for the 2016, this time 2 colours, and they are my favourites! In fact you can pick them in this yarn. They are Rose Quartz and Serenity, lovely pastel pink and blue. Blue in my view yesterday was much stronger!
It’s so breathtaking blue! Days are still gorgeus but at night it’s chilly and I need my wrist warmers.
In the morning I took photo of a little secret thing and sun had just reached the mountains. On those mountains, there is the cave, where Zorbas was living and the movie ‘Zorba the Greek’ with Anthony Queen, was filmed!
I hope you have time to have a walk, look around, shoot a photo, pick a flower or make a snowball… because there is always something beautiful to see!
