Yep, more wristwarmers…    Grin

Well, it’s my first pattern so I thought I’d keep it simple. I came across the traditional jacquard border pattern in the Mon Tricot Knitting Dictionary the other day saw a bat among the diamonds.

This pattern can be done in the round, simply omit the first and last st of every row (42 sts) to allow the border to be continuous.

Size: Women’s medium

   Size 4 (3.5mm) needles
   Size 3 (3.25mm) needles

   Main color: 1 skein light-worsted or sport weight yarn, gray
   Contrasting color: 1 skein light-worsted or sport weight yarn, black

   Tapestry needle

Gauge: 23 sts and 30 rows = 4” in stockinette using smaller needles

Pattern notes 
Ribbing is 1k, 1p repeated.
Bat border is done in St st beginning with a RS row.


With larger needles and MC, CO 44 sts. Work 1x1 ribbing for 4 rows.

Next row (RS): Join CC. Switch to smaller needles and work the 16 rows of Bat Border pattern.

Switch back to larger needles and work 18 rows of ribbing in MC.

BO loosely in pattern.

Bat Border Pattern


Break yarn. Block to even out sts in pattern.

Weave in ends. Sew sides together 1 st in on either side. Make sure the pattern lines up to be continuous around the cuff.

*   *   *   *   *   *

The yarn I used was Fantasy by Dark Horse Yarns (50% nylon, 50% acrylic). Obviously the pattern isn’t going to use up an entire skein (especially the contrasting color), but I don’t know how to calculate yardage…

If the pattern image turns up too small here on Craftster, here’s the link to the blog post: http://reliquaryarts.blogspot.com/2007/11/gone-batty-simple-fair-isle.html 

Thanks for looking!

Oh those are super cute!  I think I may make myself a pair of mittens with those cuffs.  My fingers are always freezing, I need full coverage Wink

thanks for sharing the pattern. I might have to make some of these for my boyfriends cousin. She's a bat conservationist so she'll totally love these. cheers Wink

verra nice, yes? 
i like these because they're a nice combination of wristbands (which i think look a little silly) and knucks (which i'm afraid of right now).  great compromise.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
