Winter [hand]warmers

image

Here, I made some handwarmers – I find these much more wearable than gloves because one can still use ones hands while wearing them. When I make these I tend to use extra soft/nicely textured yarn, as it feels more comfortable for wearing over long periods of time.

 

What I’ve learnt:

1) Often for cuffs, a ribbed knitting stitch can work better than crochet – this is what I used for the black cuffs on these

2) Learnt to edge using a picot stitch, though this was my first attempt – I’m confident that my next try will come out better
