Was talking to my gran the other day and she was saying she doesnt like gloves because she cant grip properly when wearing them (she has a walking aid). I had just bought some Debbie Bliss Soho wool and thought these would make a nice present. They are really simple and knit up quickly. I used less than one skein using 5.5mm needles.
Cast on 36 stitches
Knit 4 rows
Double rib (knit 2, purl 2) for 16 rows or as many as needed to reach desired length if you want them long. These come to 10cm with the edging.
Knit 4 rows
Sew up side seam, weave in ends.
For the flower (not too easy to see on the above pic!)
Cast on 31 st
[Knit 1, cast off 5] repeat to end
In case this isnt clear you should have 6 st left on needle, the first, the last and 4 inbetween, each spaced out by the cast off stitches.
Thread yarn through remaining st, pull the yarn into a circle. Making the middle tight will create the petals. Fasten off, use end to sew to wrist warmers. I have added a bead in the middle for a touch of sparkle. This was done with thread, not yarn as the yarn is too thick to go through the bead.
I would love to see some pics if you use the pattern, please link to your blog if you put photos up so I can have a look!
