Finished Hand Warmers!
A finished project!
This ball of yarn and pattern were part of our goodie bag from Rhinebeck this year. One thing that I really, really want to start doing is knitting with the new yarn that I buy and not stashing it. It feels great to have used used this pattern and to have knit up this ball of yarn and in the process I have a Christmas gift.
Pattern - Lion Brand Vanna's Sequins Sparlking Knit Wristers (free pattern on ravelry)
Yarn - Lion Brand Vanna's Sequins
Needles - 4mm
Modifications - none
The yarn was great to knit with. The only tricky part was seaming the mitt with mattress stitch, the sequins didn't always like to pull through the sts without some coaxing but that wouldn't stop me from knitting with this yarn again.
If you are needing a quick gift for someone on your Christmas list, this pattern might be what you are looking for. It is knit in stocking st with a garter st edging, there is no shaping involved and it is knit flat then seamed to make the thumb opening. Super simple!
