Hey y'all- I know that wrist warmers are as ubiquitous on craftster as
clapotis are on the knit blogs, but I'm super psyched at how these
turned out! They're knit sideways in garter stitch and I used alpaca I
spun myself.  


 Materials: 100 yds bulky weight yarn. Lambs Pride bulky is great, and 1
skein will make two pairs.

10.5 needles, for an approx. gauge of 3.5 sts/in

Yarn needle

Pattern: The entire wrist warmer is worked in garter stitch. Work pattern
twice and when seaming, sew one "inside out"- the short row sections
will be the palm on each hand.

CO 22 sts, K 5 rows

Short row shaping: *K 10 sts, yf, sl1, yb, move slipped stitch back to
left hand needle, turn work around and with yarn in back, K to end of
row (only 10 sts)
K 2 rows*
Repeat ** two more times
K 2 rows

Thumb hole: K4, BO 4, K to end
K14 sts, CO 4 sts, K4

K 17 more rows, and leave a 2 ft. tail to seam up the edges.

I'm still learning how to knit, but could you tell me what BO, yf, and yb mean, please? Like I can figure out some of the abbreviations and when I do, I can't always figure out how to do it. Sad

Well done!  The yarn looks so soft, and I love the colour.  Thanks for posting the pattern.   Smiley

oh of course!

BO means "bind off"- on this row, I do it by knitting six stitches, then lifting the second closest to the needle point over the one I've just knit, knitting another stitch, lifting the previously knit stitch over that one, and doing it two more times.  The YF (yarn forward) and YB (yarn to the back) is done so that when you turn the work around, there isn't a big hole.  Bring your yarn to the front like you're going to purl, slip the next stitch to the needle like you're going to knit it, bring the yarn back like you're going to knit and slip the stitch back to the right hand needle.  When you turn the entire thing around, start with the yarn in the back.  Don't hesitate to ask any more questions if this is unclear! Short row shaping is fun technique to learn that seems just knitting-nerdy enough to make you feel like you've learned something important (which it is!)
