Nejiri wrist warmers (free pattern :D)



My 6 year old girl asked me to make wrist warmers for her the other day. So here they are! It is really simple and easy to make. Only one cable twist (nejiri) at the wrist and a thumb hole. I made ones for myself with different length. It was surprising that our arm size turned out to be same, 7", haha:) 
Anyway I would like to share this with you all. I'm making more for my family and friends now :D

  

Nejiri wrist warmer

  1. Beautiful, as always. Your patterns are the BEST - thank you so much for sharing them! It's hard to believe that young lady modeling the wrist warmers at one time modeled the Kanoko Pants and Little Bee Capelet!! :) -Karen
