Fair Isle Wrist Warmers

Typical - just as I make myself some lovely snug wrist warmers, and type up the pattern to share with you, the weather starts to improve.


Nevertheless, these wristlets are so pretty, they will look good whatever the weather.

They are lined with lovely soft Rowan Cashsoft 4 ply and the Fair Isle in knitted with Rowan Fine Tweed.  I used a total of nine different colours for the Fair Isle.  Just small amounts needed so it is an ideal project for using up small bits and bobs.



The pattern uses a number of techniques, including knitting in the round, Fair isle, provisional cast on and picot cast off.

The pattern is available as a free PDF download, here.


You can see full details of the finished project over on my Ravelry page, here.
