Christmas wrist warmers

December 10, 2011

The start of the Christmas season is always marked for me by our village Christmas fayre, which usually happens on the first Friday in December. It really brings the community together — one of the main roads through the village is closed and stalls are set up, offering crafts, gifts and raffles — as well as hot dogs, mulled wine, mince pies and beer from a local brewery. The local schools and scout groups take part, and it was made all the more fun for me this year because I was playing with the band.

I’d been warned how cold it can be, standing on the street corner playing carols in December, so I decided to make myself some Christmassy fingerless mittens to wear while I was playing.

I used Lucy of Attic24’s pattern for wrist warmers again — I made some striped ones a couple of years ago and practically lived in them I liked them so much.

Here they are:

The details:

Pattern: Wrist warmers by Lucy of Attic24 (on Ravelry)
Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool DK in red (and white, for the edging)
Hook: 4mm

They got lots of compliments and I’ve already been asked to make another pair by one of my fellow band-members for next time we’re out playing in the cold!
