A Cheap, quick and easy winter-warmer for Mummy!

25th Feb 2016

You will need:

50g chunky wool
8mm needles
Darning needle

1 Cast on 21 stitches. Leave the loose end long – about 20cm – so that you can use it to sew up the seam at the end.
2 These warmers use the lovely moss stitch pattern giving them texture. So, knit, purl, knit, purl your way through each row. As there are an odd number of stitches on each row, no need to remember which stitch to start each row with to get the criss-cross effect of moss stitch – it’s always a knit stitch. Keep going for 32 rows and then cast off, again leaving a 25cm tail.
3 You should have a rectangle measuring approx 19cm x 18cm. Fold the rectangle in half. If you fold the 18cm length in half you will have a slightly narrower and tighter glove than folding it the other way – it’s up to you which size you want. Now sew up the seams using the loose ends, from top to bottom and bottom to top. Leave a 2cm gap, 6cm from the top, for the thumbhole.
4 Turn the tube inside out, so that the seam is on the inside.
5 Repeat steps 1-4 to knit the second wrist warmer.
