PATTERN – Brownlow Wristwarmers – fingering weight – pdf download

£3.50

In a nubbly stitch pattern that echoes London’s Dickensian brick and cobble lined streets, these simple wristwarmers keep your arms warm on chill days.

Worked in a delicate garter rib with a flattering stripe of stockinette up the inside wrist to add texture contrast, these are simply knit in the round. The thumbhole is created by simply turning the work and working flat for a number of rows then rejoining to continue in round.

|Wristwarmers are shown in TWIST ‘Wicker Man’ and HEATH ‘Nutmeg Marl’ colourways. |
