Striped Ribbed Teen Wristwarmers

More ribbed wristwarmers!!

Yesterday I showed you some lovely ribbed wristwarmers made with double sock yarn........ so easy to make and a perfect little extra Christmas gift.

I wanted to make more but I don't have any more sock yarn in my stash.

So I thought about it, and decided to use up some small amounts of DK yarn I had left over from previous projects, and make some striped ones.

This pair is for one of my nieces - she is quirky, so I made each hand different from the other but using the same colours to ensure that they look like a pair!!
They will look much better on her slim wrists :)
Requirements ~
Small amounts of DK yarn
4mm needles
Instructions ~
Cast on 32sts
Work in k2, p2 rib - in one colour or in stripes - until the length desired.
Cast off.
Sew up the side seam leaving a gap for the thumb.
Make another mitten the same.

  1. Love them! they look like cozy socks for the hands. I pinned the pattern to try it later :-)

  2. Great work, a knitting friend of mine said she is knitting a sweater using different weights of yarn, double knitting used as 2 strands and chunky yarn, she told me it's working great and it's using up her stash too

  3. I like these and want to knit them for when i go fishing with boyfriend as i knit and hands get cold,just wonder how many stitches to cast on for an adult

    1. Hello.Glad you like them!
      Add an extra 4 stitches for an average ladies size. The ribbing is stretchy so size is not too much of a problem.
      Best wishes.

  4. Thank you best wishes to you and have a nice christmas
