Quick & Easy Wrist Warmers
Quick Easy Wrist Warmers

"Nothing makes me feel more snuggly than a cozy pair of wrist warmers. This is an easy pattern that's quick to work up. It's one of my go-to patterns for when I want to knit whilst binge watching my favorite TV shows. I added the loop to make it more fun... I think it looks cute over the thumb or pinkie. 

For these pictured below, I used a worsted weight baby alpaca yarn. It's super soft, light as a feather but very effective at keeping you nice and warm. I used size 7 birch wood knitting needles. Birch wood is a lovely alternative to bamboo, which is my all-time favorite. But bamboo is a little too grabby, in my opinion, for alpaca yarn. The birch wood is ultra-light and smooth enough to not grab the yarn, but not too smooth (like metal) that you risk dropping stitches. I really love knitting with them... they're so buttery! It's just my opinion, so go grab your favorite knitting needles, some yarn you've been dying to use, cue up your DVR and get settled into your favorite comfy chair.
