My best friend got a motorcylce, and for Christmas, she wants a pair of writswarmers/fingerless gloves. I've got a couple skeins of Lionbrand Homespun, so I need a wristwarmer pattern or tutorial that uses chunky yarn. The quicker they make up, the better. I'm working on a bunch of projects, and they're all christmas presents.
Thanks!

thanks. None of those had yarn as thick as mine, but I think I can alter some of the patterns to make them work. (Let's just hope my math skills aren't to rustly, lol!)

I used chunky yarn on the rose mist wrist warmers and it came out fine. I'd try that one. I just followed the pattern and it came out great. No adaptations or anything. Smiley

thanks. I saved that one, so hopefully it'll work out okay. Did you use the same size hook as the pattern, or the one recommended for the yarn?

I believe I used a "g" or "h" hook. I can't remember. I want to say "h" though becasue I just bought an "h" hook and I"m using it for everything right now. lol.
