Wee one asked me to knit up a pair of handwarmers for one of her friends.  I duly asked the friend to pick out the colour she wanted and last night I finally finished them up.  Wee one instantly ran over to her friends house to take them to her and on finding her not in was too excited to bring them home and wait to see her friend but gave them to the mum instead  Cheesy

Wee one did however wait long enough to model them for me so I could take a quick photo.

So cute! I love them!  Grin Do you mind my asking how you made them? I've been looking for a simple handwarmer pattern. Anyway, those are just adorable! Great job!

Thanks
Sure for child size I usually cast on 34 stitches then do 10 rows of rib then 24 stitches of knit one row purl one row then another 5 rows of rib. 

For these particular one's I went a bit fancy and did 10 rows of rib, 8 rows of knit followed by 16 rows of knit one purl one then 5 rows of rib. Cheesy

For bigger sizes increase but make sure you always cast on stitches in multiples of 2. Smiley  I'm a beginner knitter but don't tend to follow patterns (as I don't understand them mostly)  Hope that helps.

So you knit them straight, instead of in the round, and then sewed up the sides? Sounds simple enough!! Thanks for the instructions! Now I can make a pair.

Anyway, yours are great. I love how they're short and don't go up the arms too much, like I've seen with other patterns. I need something just for the hands.

Thanks again!  Grin

Oops yes I forgot to say I knit them straight, I have tried knitting with circular needles once and gave up out of sheer frustration Sad  I look forward to seeing pics of your handwarmers Wink
