Wristwarmers in garter stitch - one of the first projects I teach in my knitting class for beginners (girls and boys 8-13 years).
Cast on, knit stitch, bind off, a little bit of sewing and then adorning with whatever you fancy. In my case that would be wooden buttons either made of a piece of that Christmas Tree from a few years back, or a branch of cedar found in the park behind our house.
Besides holding yarn and needles properly, the main difficulty appears to be keeping a certain amount of stitches... oh that simple joy when counting the same number row after row!
Mine too, as I watch them.
Because I know this little wristwarmer could be the beginning of a great love.
*Yarns for these wristwarmers are Beaverslide Fisherman Weight and Rowan Felted Tweed.
