Leeside Hand Warmers is a new pattern available for $4.50┬áin two sizes. Note: If you receive my newsletter you’ll be getting a $1 off coupon tomorrow, on Monday, May 5.

It’s worked in the round from the cuff toward the fingers with an afterthought thumb. Pattern is charted. Half of the rounds are stranded color work with two colors which can constrict the fabric, so be careful with tension. To mitigate that, it is mostly worked in k2 x p2 ribbing which restores some elasticity.

It requires about 20 grams each of four colors of fingering weight yarn. I used The Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering.

Although designed with four colors, consider working in a plethora of colors, or in two colors only, or add some mystery to the knitting by using contrasting self-striping yarns.
