Chunky Cable Wrist Warmers

April 30, 2008

This started out as a water bottle cozy but field testing found it unsatisfactory for that purpose.  However, when I knit a second one, I had a pair of really nice wrist warmers.  They should look awesome peeking out of the cuff of my jean jacket.  These work up very quickly for some fun instant gratification.  Hope you enjoy it.  PDF available here.

Chunky Cable Wrist Warmers

Yarn: Worsted weight – work two strands together.  Consider mixing colors and using up left overs.

Amount:  About 50 yards for each warmer.

Needles:  10.5 double pointed needles.  The pattern is written to use 3 needles to hold the stitches and 1 needle for working.

Baby Cable: Round 1: *K2 together but keep on needle. Knit 1st stitch and drop both knitted stitches. P1. Repeat from * around.

Cast on 27 stitches dividing 9 per needle.
