Description

Lovely wristwarmers! The pattern is the double moss stitch. It goes like this:

Cast on 38 stitches
Ribbing = 8 rows: K2P2 right side / P2K2 the opposite)
Row 9 starts the double moss stitch:
K2,then P1,K1
P1, K1, (repeat this to the last 2 sts) then P2
K1, P1 (
repeat this to the last 2 sts.) then K2
P2,then K1,P1 to the end.
Repeat these 4 rows until the desired length is achieved (I repeated these 4 rows for 8 times which totals 32 rows of double moss stitch without the ribbing!)
Next start the ribbing again (as explained above) and knit it for 6 rows. Bind off!
My wramers are 16 cm long and about 21 cm wide (I measured them after sewing the ends together – silly me!)

Note: Please note that I cast 38 sts because I have fairly small wrists (15 cm). If you have longer/bigger arms/wrists cast more stc. then suggested here. Remember that you have to have an even number of stitches.

Legend:
K= knit so K2 means knit 2 stitches
P= purl, so P2 means purl 2 stitches.

  • Further help* – Burdastule posted a how-to on ribbing a while ago!

Material Notes

1 (100gr.) ball of thick yarn (60% wool/ 40% acrylic) for two wristwarmers.
Knitting needles – 3mm.

    Here it goes again thanks to my dearest camilaustral:

    Cast on 38 stitches

    Ribbing = 8 rows: K2P2 right side / P2K2 the opposite)

    Row 9 starts the double moss stitch: K2,then P1, K1

    Row 10 = P1, K1, (repeat this to the last 2 sts) then P2

    Row 11 = K1, P1 (*repeat this to the last 2 sts.) then K2

    Row 12= P2,then K1,P1 to the end.

    Repeat rows 9-12 until the desired length is achieved.

    Next row – ribbing for 6 rows. Bind off.

    The instructions didn’t turn out the way they should be. The description box offered was too small and I made certain to start a new line with each new instruction, but in vain! When the instructions appeared they looked like this i.e having no sense at all, so please, if you are interested in making these, contact me and I’ll e-mail you the instructions. I apologize for this!!
