I had to look up the yarn to see whether the bamboo referred to the fiber or to the stitch - it's the name of the stitch. The fiber is an acrylic/wool blend. I love the geometric look of the stitch and it's gorgeous in this colorway.

The pattern looks so easy and will work up quickly. Leaving in New York these wrist warmers always come in handy, even in the office where the temperature is not steady. They add a nice touch to an outfit as well. Thank you.

Anyone out there already knitted these? The pattern looks very pretty but I am wondering whether it holds its shape or if I should knit a ribbing at both ends? I often wear wrist warmers while I am working so I need them to stay in place and not slip down my hand. I really like these bamboo stitch wrist warmers so would really love to hear from you if you have made these.
