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.

Free Knitting Pattern: Easy Cowl

Free knit pattern - beginner's cowlI have a soft top car and whenever the roof is down, there is a massive draft at the back of my neck. So I’ve created this really simply cowl to help keep me warm while I’m driving. The simple rib means that it is stretchy enough to fit over your head easily whilst also fitting snuggly around the neck to keep the draughts out.
