Warm Hands

Hello!

I finally got back the the hand warmers. They were a special request so I’ve really wanted to get them done and get them right. They’re made with some amazing red and black Cascade 220 worsted-weight yarn. I love working with wool… This project just made me so happy. I worked the two different coloured strands at the same time on size 10.5 needles. I took a pattern for some super-bulky mittens and modified it for the different yarn, to fit a larger hand better, and to be, well, not a mitten. I had to do a few trials to make sure everything would fit properly, but once it was sorted out it was a very fast project.

How these came together:

Cast on 26sts + 1 to join in the round.

K1, P1 rib for 20 rounds

5 rounds knit

Round 26: k2, increased 1, k2, increased 1, k to finish round

Round 29: k2, increased 1, k2, increased 1, k to finish round

Next 2 rounds: knit

Round 32: k2, increased 1, k2, increased 1, k to finish round

Next 2 rounds: knit
