Manos del Uruguay Belated Handwarmers (Free)
Lisa designed and knit these handwarmers as a birthday present for her daughter. They were a little late, so they started calling them the “Belated Handwarmers”! These are basic handwarmers that fit snug and have an added twist with some interesting cables. They can be knit in a few different sizes depending on your gauge – see pattern for details.
Women’s Medium (see Note on Gauge)
Manos del Uruguay SILK BLEND, 1 skein. Shown in 3064 Pewter.
Dpn, US 4/3.5mm, or size to obtain gauge
6 sts and 8 rows= 4”/10cm over Stockinette Stitch
7 sts and 8 rows = 4” over Wide Rib, unstretched
Like most gloves and handwarmers, these are designed with negative ease: when worn, they are stretched by the wearer’s hands. The best way to adjust the sizing is to adjust the needle size – for Women’s Small or Kid’s Large, use US 3/3.25mm ndls; for Women’s Large, US 5/3.75 mm. The rib and cable pattern gives the fabric a lot of flexibility.
