Yummy Mummy Wristwarmers

When one of my nieces said that she wanted a pair of fingerless gloves, I decided that I would make her a pair for Christmas. The pattern I used was “Yummy Mummy Wristwarmers”, a Ravelry download by Alexandra Brinck .

I used Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino yarn and US#0 needles. Because the yarn is a fingering weight, I used a toothpick, with the pointy ends sanded down, as my cable needle. It was just the right small size to easily hold the cable stitches forward of back.

The palm has a twisted rib (purl, knit through the back of the stitch) so it has a firmer fabric.

These were so fast to knit and they look darling on my niece (who is the lovely hand model)!

  1. These are wonderful! Love the colors and the pattern you used. I just made my first set of arm warmers this week just doing a knit stitch all thhe way down and sewing the seam. I hope to learn to do cables and knit in the round soon though!

    Cables are so very easy, yet they look so complicated! When I knit socks and mittens in the round, I use two 16″ circular needles, dividing the stitches in half on each needle. I’m glad you like these!

  3. Things like this makes me wish I could count, so I could DIY! Instead, I spin and trade yarn for knitting with friends 😉 heehee

  4. Oh, those are just beautiful! What lovely work you do.

    Emily, a trade works in a heartbeat!
