Title: more irish hiking warmers
Post by: yellowblanket on August 13, 2007 11:25:24 AM
i made another set of these armwarmers, this time for my boyfriend. i knit them on size 8's with some cotton ease that he picked out. i'd never used cotton ease before, but i really like the feel of it.



and an action shot:

You did a very nice job!  Did you design the pattern yourself?

Those look wonderful!  I have some random skeins of Cotton-Ease, now I know what to do with them!   :)

Pretty colors!

I really want to try cables. Is this project pretty quick and easy?

You did a really good job on those! I so wanna make one. Where did you find the pattern? Or did you use your own?

thanks so much for the comments! the pattern i used can be found here: http://irishhikingknitalong.blogspot.com/2004/12/irish-hiking-wrist-warmers.html

scroll down to the bottom of the page for a picture of her version of the wrist warmers and then click her link where it says "here" and you'll have her pattern.

WIPs, please don't be scared of cables! i used to be intimidated also, but really, it's SO simple! and what a great way to decorate knit items! this is a good first-cabling project, too. very quick knit, so instant gratification :)

katywankenobi, go for it! don't be afraid. this is a good pattern to start out with because it isn't knit in the round on dpns or anything. it's knit flat and then seamed up.

good luck, girls!
