My first pattern: Easy Knit Ribbed Wrist Warmers

Easy Knit Ribbed Wrist Warmers


Set of four 5mm (8 US) double-pointed needles

1 ball of Red Heart Boutique Magical (Top Hat shown in picture)

Needle for sewing in ends

Please note: Given the nature of this yarn I did not use a gauge. The gauge suggested on the ball of yarn is 16 stitches/20 rows=4” using 5mm (8 US). Also, if you use the yarn listed about, the texture will vary and you will end up with a different look for each warmer

Size: 8” around wrist (With using the ribbing stitch, this will work with a wide range of wrist sizes. If this is too big, you just need to put on less stitches. I would suggest starting by cast on 1 less stitch on each needle)

Wrist Warmers (make 2)

Cast on 36 stitches (12 sts on three needles). Join in round. Mark beginning of round if desired

Round 1: K1, P1 to end of round

Repeat Round 1 for 9 1/2” or desired length

Thumb Opening:

On next round, cast off the first 4 stitches (32 sts remain). K1, P1 to end of round. Turn. (Do not join in round) K1,P1 to end of row (back to the 8 remaining stitches on the first needle). Turn.

Repeat these two rows once more (4 rows total)

K1, P1 to third needle. Knit in rounds from here on out. Cast on 4 stitches on the first needle at the beginning of the next round (there will 12 sts on the first needle again)

Complete rounds for 3” or desired length.

Cast off loosely. Sew in ends.
