Cinnamon Spice Wrist Warmers

Materials

Using the 5mm hook and holding yarn A and B double, chain 31

Row 1: Dc in 2nd ch from hook, dc in every ch (30 st)

Row 2: Ch3 (counts as tr), *skip next stitch, tr in next 3 stitches, special stitch*

Work from * to * 6 times, tr into last st

Row 3: Ch1 (turning chain), dc in every stitch (including into top of first ch3 of prev row)

Rows 2 and 3 form the pattern

  • Repeat the pattern 4 more times using 5mm hook
  • Switch to 4.5mm hook and work the pattern rows once
  • Switch to 4mm hook and work the pattern rows twice more

Next, drop Yarn B

1dc (turning ch), dc in every stitch using Yarn A. Break off and stitch in loose end

Fold the rectangle in half with the wrong sides facing (right sides will form the outside of the wrist warmers. Use your preferred method for joining a seam – I used mattress stitch for mine. Use the long tails to stitch the seam. The perfect fit for me was to join from the bottom 3 rows and then from the top two rows. This left 2 rows not joined to form the thumbhole. Please study the photos carefully to see what this looks like.

Special Stitch: Treble cable

Work one treble by inserting the hook 4 stitches to the right and in the dc just missed

Hints and Tips

Leave long tails of at least 20cm to use when stitching together

Practice the special stitch – I like to pull the yarn up to stop too much tightness creeping into my tension
