Free Knitting Pattern: Easy Patterned Handwarmers

Free Knitting Pattern: Easy HandwarmersThese patterned handwarmers are a really simple, quick knit and are perfect as last-minute gifts. The picture on the side used a merino wool/acrylic mix to ensure the handwarmers are warm yet hard-wearing however any DK weight yarn will do.

Dec 2012 – Based on Ravelry feedback: If your hands are fairly large, you may want to cast on a few more stitches (in multiples of 4) to ensure a good fit. If you prefer a tighter cuff, knit the cuff on a smaller size of needles before swapping back to 4mm needles for the handwarmer body.

Knitted Cat Blanket Squares

I made a conscious decision this week to attempt to finish some of my WIPs. The square for my first cat blanket have been knitted up and sewn togther:

Cat blanket - knitted squares

This was a lovely easy knit. The cat squares are actually a dishcloth pattern however they seem to be a lot larger than the standard sort of dishcloth size. All of the wool used is Sirdar acrylic – hopefully it will be quite hard wearing and easy to look after.
