Web-Letter, Issue 106 Princess Mitts and Legwarmers
Nothing says Fall like layers, and nothing is easier to knit than classic, ribbed leg and wrist warmers. This week’s project duo are simple-to-knitand I do mean SIMPLE. Cast on a few stitches, work one-by-one ribs back and forth for as long as you like, cast off, seam, and you’re done.
If you prefer working in the round, cast on two fewer stitches and knit in circles. For the wrist warmers, work from the wrist in the direction of the thumb and when you get to where you’d like the opening, work back and forth for an inch or so, then join and work the distance to the middle knuckle.
The great thing about these little pieces is that you can make them from that precious skein of cashmere you have lying around, or in one of my favorite yarns, Princess (read more about it below). For more pictures of these little pieces, and other projects in Princess, see our Fall 2009 booklets, shown below.
