Last year I knit a scarf for my niece as a Christmas gift.. This year she asked me to make her some fingerless hand warmers. This a very quick and easy idea I came up with.
Step 1: Supplies
basic knitting skills
Step 2: Cast On
cast on 20 stitches
I used size 13 needles and 2 strands of yarn.
I chose a slightly heavier yarn and a slimmer yarn to match the original scarf I knit. I like to knit with mixed yarns.
Step 3: Knit
knit eac row
I like to just use a knit stitch
I like the look of rows of simple knitting.
Step 4: Knit
Knit about 30 rows
enough to wrap around the hand
Step 5: Knit
knit approx. 30 rows or 8 inches ( for a size small, give more rows for a larger hand)
Step 6: Cast Off
Cast off by knitting 2 stitches together
then return the remaining stitch to the needle and knit the next 2 stitches until all stitches are removed from needles.
Step 7: Knit
knit a second piece
Step 8: Sewing
Thread the darning needle with the thinner strand of yarn and sew fron
m the wrist approx. 3"
make a sturdy knot.
Step 9: Sew
leave a 2" opening and continue to sew to the top edge.
Step 10: Finish
sew second mitten and the warmers are finished.
Quick and easy!
