made this handwarmers lately and wanted to show them. I actually like the pattern, but in wool it's not very flexible all the time, maybe is should make the next ones just a little bit bigger... well here they go:






short tutorial, I hope im clear. I left my pattern for it at my home country, more or less 1500km away from here. I there is intressest for the real pattern i can put it up around december.<
here it goes:


i used 28 stitches with a 5mm needle to can go around my wist and arm (this was a little bit to thight for me, and i have really small hands), You need to make sure that it fitst around your hand when putting them on. I begun in the bottom of the handwarmer, and when i reached the point where my hand starts to be wider (somewhere by the thumb) i started to add on the side of the thum. i just moved and stretched my hand on all possible ways to be sure if it was fitting good and just adding stitches when was neccessary.
than i came on the point that i was above my thumb, and i just joined the parts that was covering the hand with some stitches in between (i think it was 4) to make sure that the thum was still free to move, than i worked to the top again. Increasing and adding when was neccessary.

thanks for the kind reactions allready!!!
@ marcusandlila: it is not made from handspun yarn, a friend of mine found a treasure at the thrift store (like 19 balls of yarn for a really cheap price). But it is 100% wool.

I want to make some of these soooooooooo bad!!!!! how do you do it?
