Emerald Green Handwarmers

Another pair!
I know, i'm obsessed by handwarmers..but i really love them!
These are in a beautiful emerald green Merinos extrafine wool, soft and cozy.
The pattern? A sudden inspiration, that i've obviously wrote down to share..every girl should have a pair of this!

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

Abbreviations:
k = knit
p = purl
st/sts = stitch/stitches

Moss stitch:
Row1: *k1,p1*
Row2: *p1,k1*

Stockinette stitch:
Row1: knit across
Row2: purl across

Double Moss stitch:
Row1-2: *k1,p1*
Row3-4: *p1,k1*

Handwarmers (make two!):
Cast on 34 sts.
Work in Moss st for 3 Rows.
Work in Stockinette st for 12 Rows (you should end up with a purl row).
Start with Double Moss stitch, and repeat the pattern rows 6 times, ending with row4.
Work 4 Rows in Stockinette st and then 3 more rows in Moss st.
Bind off loosely in Moss st using a 5.00mm needle.

Finishing:
Fold in half the piece and sew sides:
from top down 2cm.
from bottom up 8cm
leaving 3,5cm open for thumb hole.

Faith said...

Was just wondering- what kind of stitch do you recommend for sewing the sides together? I'm trying to figure out what will "blend in" with the pattern. Thanks so much!

creativeyarn said...

Hi Faith!
I've used the mattress stitch for sewing the edges..
They'll look perfect!

I feel like an idiot...I started knitting these on dpns before I realized you knit them flat... *shrugs* They don't look any different than your's so far, so I'm not stopping now, haha!

Love these. My first handwarmers and were a great success as a gift!

Shell said...

I just want to say thanks for putting up such lovely patterns for free.

I am a fairly new knitter so I am always a bit daunted by a lot of patterns I would like to try.

But your handwarmers are quite simple and totally gorgeous, I am excited to try them out!

Thanks again!

Hi! My name is Sara, and I live in Athens, Georgia. I made a pair of these in dove grey and beaded the tops for my mother as a birthday gift. She loved them so much, and I just wanted to thank you for posting the pattern. It was simple, and they were a joy to make.

I made a pair! Woohooo! I love them and they actually look like yours, although a bit stretched from wearing. Thank you so much. I used some double knitting yarn I had around for 4mm needles. I could only find 4.5mm and used those, it still worked fine.undist

just came across this patter via Ravelry. I love knitting hand/armwarmers at the moment as they're so easy and fast. Will definately be making a few pairs in your pattern.

Madz said...

Hi,
I attempted these using 4.5mm needles with DK acrylic yarn but the one I made came out HUGE! my hand and wrist were literally swimming in the glove! So I frogged it and plan to start again maybe reducing the stitches and double moss repeats.

My question is, does having a tighter tension with knitting make much difference in size? I tend to knit loosely but not real loose, more slightly loose.

Madeleine said...

Hey there!
Not sure if you're still active here or not... Great pattern, just made a post about it on my blog. :)

would you possibly have a pattern in crochet for the hand warmers?

LiviaY said...

Hello,
Just wanted to say thank you for the pattern...
This was my first knitting project ever! :D
It's beautiful, simple and easy without being boring... just perfect!
Once again, thank you.

Great pattern, especially for last-minute holiday knitting! They're really easy and quick to make, and the finished project is quite fancy. I know a couple of ladies who'll be getting a pair of these this year.

Elke said...

These are amazing! I love this pattern and I really enjoyed knitting them! Learned a new stitch too (double moss)! I also like the tip to cast off using a larger needle- it works brilliantly! Thanks so much!

My grandaughter is the cheer coach at our local school, I plan to make these for her cheerlearders in the school colors. Thanks so much for the info.

KnitaWriggs said...

Hi! Thanks so much for the free pattern, made my first pair of handwarmers ever using this! I love them! I will be making more :)

RS Gold said...

Those are the cutest handwarmers I have come across for quite a while! I we appreciate you the actual structure!

ravenra said...

Like someone else, I started knitting these on DPNs and now I have a few inches done. How far up are the thumb holes (in rounds/rows) and how many rows should be left open? Thanks!

Lovely pattern! I am having such fun knitting these for spring and fall in Canada!

Any suggestion on some yarn at Michaels or Walmart that you are using. The pattern looks lovely and want to try them but just not sure on what yarn to use.

Alguém pode me enviar a receita traduzida em português? Algumas partes eu não entendi (patlyma@gmail.com). Thanks.

I just came across these beautiful hand warmers. I am teaching a knitting class and wanted something that would challenge the students just a little, this is perfect and very fitting for our area here in Idaho. Thanks so much for sharing your pattern.

Lori Thorne said...

These wristwarmers are so cute! Thanks for sharing this pattern with the world! ;)

Jordanna said...

I have made 4 sets over the last several years using this pattern. About to do another set. Thanks so much for the pattern!

Lizzie Laine said...

Thanks for the wonderful pattern! I took the liberty to translate it in french on my blog, to help french girls to make some for themselves! I'll take care to quote you, you have such wonderful patterns! ;¬)

Candace Cunard said...

These are completely lovely! I just made a pair as a Christmas gift for my mother, and my roommate, upon seeing me with the finished product, promptly demanded a pair as her Christmas gift! I've never made handwarmers before but these are so cute and easy, I know I'll be using this pattern all the time!

Thank-you so much for this pattern. Ultra cute mitts! However, I was a bit confused when starting out. It appears that your "moss stitch" is actually a seed stitch, and your "double moss stitch" is actually a regular moss stitch. I ended up going with a traditional moss stitch and double moss stitch after all and it came out cute nonetheless. Thank-you!

Tiffany King said...

Just cast these on....super cute! Thanks for the pattern :)

Jerricurl0415 said...

I love this so much, I'm trying to make these myself and I can't wait to see how it turns out. Super easy and I've been searching forever for a pattern like this. Every time I have found a glove pattern I like it turns out that it's either crochet or require a different type of needles than what I have. I have no idea how to crochet haha. I might learn next summer!! Thank you so much for this pattern! I love it!! (:
