Attention span of a caffeinated gerbil

The pattern for these was free from here: http://creativeyarn.blogspot.com/2009/11/diagonal-eyelet-hand-warmers-free.html

So I'm both very excited about these, and very disappointed.

Excited because they came out great and were super easy and fast (I started the one an hour before bed last night and finished it early this afternoon). Disappointed because they're too big for me (I pinned them in the pic so they would look decent), and I haven't the first clue how to alter a pattern like this to be smaller.





Do you think washing them would make them smaller?

very cute! if they are pure wool, they should felt in the wash. but it has to be a felting wool, not superwash.

What are they made of?  Some materials shrink in the wash, and others, like cotton, will stretch and grow.  If they're wool and you're planning on washing them, keep an eye on them so they don't felt down too small!

Other than your size issues, these are super cute!  I think I may have to try this pattern out.

Thanks everyone! I think (I lost the packaging) it's 60/40 acrylic/cotton.

Maybe someone not as bony as I would like them. My husband and oldest son already turned their noses up at the color.  Cheesy

Hm.... I'd recommend putting it through the dryer at the hottest setting, but I'm a little worried the acrylic might melt.

Maybe I'll give it a try. Really, this was so quick to knit up and it doesn't fit well anyway, I'd don't think I have anything to lose by trying it.

You could try knitting the gloves on a smaller-sized needles to make the project smaller.  That way, you wouldn't have to alter the pattern directions.

I hadn't even thought of that. I'll give it a try!

That's what I was just going to suggest, what I'm going to do when I try this pattern (which I love, thanks for sharing) as I also have really small hands.

Those look great  Smiley
Did you make them flat and sew them up? If you did you can take that apart and sew it farther from the edge, and fold down the extra parts. I have never tried that before myself, but it seems like it would work  Wink

Good luck!
