How much awesomeness can 1 mini skein add to a project? When it comes to a bold burst of colourwork on the wrists, a lot! The strong vertical lines of the colourwork match up with the purls of the ribbing - a small but satisfying detail. The ribbing means they fit well and make reliable gifts.

I always like to note the number of rows it took me to knit a particular section on the first hand warmer and then use them to knit the second one identically. I’ve provided spaces for you to write rows down if you want to do this.
