Welcome to our weekly feature, What to Make Wednesday! The yarns here at Ewe Ewe are so versatile and I love to share ideas about what you can knit with them.
How about a quick pair of cable wrist warmers! I love the Born to Be Warm mitts because they are so fast to knit and they don’t require a cable needle. Woohoo!
The stepped cable stitch pattern is fun to knit and keeps you moving right along.
Born to Be Warm mitts are worked in the round up to the thumb hole and then you work a few rows back and forth to make the opening. My friend Sally at …have you any wool? in Berkley, MI did a great job on her Brushed Silver pair! I love her photo where you can really see the graduated cables and the thumb opening.
Did I mention these wrist warmers are a 1-skein wonder? They are! Grab your favorite color of Baa Baa Bulky merino yarn – 17 to choose from! – and whip up a pair now so you’re ready to walk the dog on a chilly autumn morning.
How much yarn do I need?
Size: 8.5” long x 8.5” circumference.
Note from the designer: If you’d like to make these mitts smaller consider using a size US 10 needle instead of the recommended US 10.5.
Yarn requirements: 1 ball of Baa Baa Bulky merino yarn
