Recycled Smocked Wrist Warmers

Betz White Recycled Smocked Wrist Warmers

It’s not yet really warm everywhere. You can still use a recycled wrist warmer. And much better, if you can change a boring ribbed wrist warmer in such a simple way into a nice smocked wrist warmer ;-)

By the way: this wrist warmer isn’t knitted, but sewn from an old sweater!

Double Knitted Wristwarmers

Not long ago I presented the double knitted potholders.
As always it began to work in my head (not to think, thinking is stressful! ;-)) and I wanted absolutely know whether you can double knit in rounds.
You can ;-))

I knitted two wristwarmers for me with a set of double-pointed needles as for socks and here you can see the inside.

Here is the chart I used.
I’m not 100% positive about it because I’m simply knitting too loose and these fine patterns don’t look as good as I’d have wished.
Perhaps it is different for you :)

I knitted the pattern 5x, but of course you must adapt this to your wrists ;-))

Stretch Sensitive Bracelet

Another great idea that I found in the book Häkeln + Stricken für Geeks: the stretch sensitive bracelet.
Very handy now that’s longer dark outside: as long as it’s light you wear it as normal non-shining wrist warmer and when it get’s dark, you shove it up your arm and then the light begins to shine and you’re better seen.
