Cherry Red Handwarmers's free pattern

A friend asked me for the pattern of the Cherry Red Handwarmers, and as I looove to share creativity with others, and as I've learned to knit and crochet thanks to Internet's crafty community, I've wrote it immediately!
It's very easy, but if you have problems with it just send me an e-mail!

One ball 100% Merinos wool extrafine (50g/135m)
4.00mm Straight Needles


k = knit
p = purl
yo = yarn over
k2tog = knit 2 sts together
st/sts = stitch/stitches
skp = slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over

Handwarmers (make two!):

Cuff's Ribbing:
Cast On 32 sts leaving a long tail for sewing handwarmer's cuff and part of body.
Row1: *k2,p2* across
Row2-11: Repeat Row1.

Row 1: k1, *Yo, k2tog; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3: k1, *SKP (), yo; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 4: Purl.
Repeat Rows 1-4 a total of 10 times or for the desired lenght, ending with a Row4.

Top's ribbing:
Row1: *k2,p2* across
Row2-6: Repeat Row1.
Using a larger needle (5.00mm), Cast off sts loosely.
Cut yarn leaving a tail for sewing handwarmer's top.

Sew handwarmer's top for approximately 2.5cm and cuff and body for 10cm, leaving 3cm of body open for thumb.
Cut yarns and weave in all ends.
Sew some pretty buttons on the cuff's ribbing if you like and enjoy your new pair of handwarmers!

i'm SO making those!!

Jodi said...

So cute! What weight of yarn do you recommend? Sport?

Thanks so much for sharing the pattern. :-)

creativeyarn said...

I love comments!!
Well I think it's more a DK weight yarn.
We don't have this kind of labels in Italy, but I'm quite sure it's a DK..

These are gorgeous!!! Was the stitch difficult, looks like it was but reading the directions sounds like it wasn't. Usually crochet is easier than it looks, not knitting.

Lovely patterns, thanks for sharing.

Veggies.... said...

Pooof....seems my comment disappeared. These are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful free patterns.

creativeyarn said...

They're very easy to make, you just need some concentration and less than one ball of yarn!
On Ravelry you can see these handwarmers made by other girls, each pair so unique and original.
I love to share patterns!

RavenDancer said...

row three, do i repeat the whole line till i get to the last stich? cause the () confuses me...so its skp yo to the end of the row? or just at the start of the row...cause im soo confused!
hope you can help me out as these are a present for my besty!

creativeyarn said...

Hi ravendancer, you have to repeat the pattern for the whole row..don't worry, once you'll get it, it's very easy!
I hope your friend will love them!

withinireland said...

Emmy said...

Thank you for this wonderful pattern! I knitted them and posted on my blog.:D

Danni said...

Aw! So cute!
Now I want to learn how to knit because I want to make these soooo badly! (I only crochet)

I think I'm starting to like the color red because of your beret and these :) ( I don't like red that much)

Keep up the good work!

I've made one of these handwarmers and on the second. I'm making the first pair for me and hope to make several more for gifts. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern!

and if i ignore it, i dont get those cute little holes in mine :p
pweese help >_<

Deanne Shields said...

Thank you for sharing your talent. These are really pretty and I can't wait to get started.

a question about row three in the body, what does the () mean? i understand that i have to k1, then skp and Yo until the last st, then i knit the last one... but im not getting the wholes in the pattern. help me out? thanks.

Frenchchick said...

Love this pattern but I'm kinda still a knitting noob and I'm having trouble with row 3, Do I (K1, SKP, yo) to end and k1 OR do I have to K1 then do (SKP, yo) all the way to the end then K1

Row 3: k1, *SKP (), yo; rep from * to last st, k1.

Kate Wells said...

Just finished a pair in pale pink "sheep #3" silk,wool blend...they are beautiful...a Christmas gift for my daughter. Thanks for posting the pattern! Kate~

Rachael Evans said...

I love these! I've gotten so many compliments on your emerald green ones that I've been asked to make 4 pairs for friends! I thought I would try all your handwarmer patterns. I do have a question, if I need to make them wider, is there a specific multiple I need to add like in increments of 2,4,6, etc. stitches?

Erin said...

I've just stumbled upon your blog and am loving all your knitting patterns. Thanks for sharing them. you are also furthering my desire to learn to crochet.

Madisyn said...

I love these!! So cozy and cute! I'm having a little trouble with row 3 though! It keeps decreasing and I don't think it's supposed to. is it? And if not what am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance! :)

Amanda said...

I'm having the same problem as Madisyn! My rows keep decreasing. :-( what are we doing wrong? I love these and am hoping to make a few pair for Christmas presents but need to figure out the decreasing first. :)

These look beautiful, but as others have posted, I'm also confused about Row 3 of the body. For those of us who are newbie knitters, would you please spell out that line of the pattern. Specifically, we need to know what the empty set of parentheses indicates. If I do k1, *SKP, yo; rep from * to last st, k1, something obviously goes wrong. So, the parens must mean something, but no amount of Googling has revealed anything. According to my research, there is usually info in the parentheses that we're supposed to follow. Thanks in advance for us newbies! I can't wait to make my first pair of handwarmers using this lovely pattern. Best, Sheryl :-)

The pattern is fine, as I'm finding out. The 3rd row is setting up the eyelet just slightly to the right of Row 1's eyelets. To do that (SKPO) slip the first stitch onto the right needle (S) - then knit the next stitch (K) - then pass (P) the slipped stitch over (O)the stitch just knitted. Always count the stitches on the purl side to check that you have 32 stitches. It does work out!

I precisely wanted to appreciate you again. I am not sure the things I would have implemented without the actual ways shown by you directly on such a situation. Entirely was an absolute frustrating setting for me personally, nevertheless encountering the very professional form you treated it made me to jump over delight. Now i'm thankful for this guidance as well as have high hopes you find out what a great job your are providing instructing many people using your blog post. Probably you haven't met any of us.

I just found this on Ravelry, going to cast on first thing tomorrow morning! Thanks for sharing your pattern :-)

Runescape Gold said...

They're beautiful!!! Ended up being your stitch challenging, looks like it turned out however studying the guidelines seems like it was not. Typically crochet now is easier pc seems, certainly not knitting.

hanasaurusrex said...

I love these ! I have made your other fingerless mitts for all the family & friends & they turned out gorgeous every time. I used all different types of yarn - loved them. I hope these (I'm sure they will) turn out as lovely.

Thankyou for your generosity with these free patterns x
