Diagonal Eyelet Hand Warmers Free Pattern

Let's start posting again some more interesting things!
And what else could I choose to be back with, other than a new pair of cute hand warmers?
Fall is arrived with lot of rain here in Rome, making my hands cold.
It has been such a hot summer, that I'm really happy to be able again to put on a chunky wool cardigan, drink warm tea and watch the rain falling over the window.
This pair of hand warmers are made with a diagonal eyelets and ribbing cuffs and tops, I hope you'll enjoy this new free pattern!
Here it is:

Materials:

One ball 100% Merinos wool extrafine (50g/135m), any DK weight yarn will work
4.00mm Straight Needles
5.00mm Straight Needles

Abbrevations:
k = knit
p = purl
yo = yarn over
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
st/sts = stitch/stitches

Handwarmers (make two!):
Cuff's Ribbing:
Cast On 34 sts leaving a long tail for sewing handwarmer's cuff and part of body.
Row1: k2, *p2,k2* across
Row2: p2, *k2,p2* across
Row3-14: Repeat Row1 for odd rows and Row2 for even rows

Body:
Row 1: k4, *Yo, k2tog, k4*. Repeat from * across.
Row 2: Purl.
Row 3: k5, Yo, k2tog, *k4, Yo, k2tog*. Repeat from * to last 3 sts, k3.

Row9: k2, Yo, k2tog, *k4, Yo, k2tog*. Repeat from * across.
Row10: Purl.
Row11: k3, Yo, k2tog, *k4, Yo, k2tog*. Repeat from * to last 5 sts, k5
Row12: Purl.
Rows13-24: Repeat rows 1 to 12.

Top's ribbing:
Row1: k2, *p2,k2* across
Row2: p2, *k2,p2* across
Using a larger needle (5.00mm), Cast off sts loosely doing a ribbing Row1.
Cut yarn leaving a tail for sewing handwarmer's top.

Finishing:
Sew handwarmer's top for approximately 2.0cm and cuff and body for 8.5cm, leaving 3cm of body open for thumb.
Cut yarns and weave in all ends.
Sew some pretty buttons on the cuff's ribbing if you like and enjoy your new pair of handwarmers!

as everyone has said your mitts are beautiful but i'd like too add your generosity is also amazing! many share a free pattern but very few allow others to sell items made from their pattern. that is probably too nice!

Heya first i'd like to thanks for the beautiful patterns, i just made your cherry red hand warmers yesterday and they turned out beautiful xx so pleased.
I just started you diagonal eyelet hand warmers and found a bit where am confused, i cast on the 34, but then in row 1 i end up with 35 and then again in row 9 i got an incrase to 36 then 37 in row 11, once doing all 24 rows i ended with 39stitches which didnt work out for the end ribbing of k2p2. i sat with pen and paper and couldnt work it out. Can you explain it for me please, i know i must be doing something wrong as others have commented on making it and it being lovely but i just cant get it.

Again big fan and love your patterns xx I also learned all my knitting and crochet from the internet.

Thanks for any insight you can give me as i really wanna make these handwarmers xx

regards
Jo

This pattern is fantastic. I saw it, made it that night for a friend. Then made another pair two days later for myself out of a single skein of gorgeous stash yarn that I'd been trying to find a use for. Thank you :)

DeniseK said...

I love your diagonal spin on the handwarmers. I will enjoy wearing these!

Casey Elford said...

Hi There!

This pattern looks really super! But I am apprehensive about trying something like gloves, etc... From what I can tell in the pattern, you are not using dpns? Are you working flat, and then sewing a seam up the side of the gloves? Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I really like these fingerless gloves! I've been looking for some and I just can't find the right pair... but these are so perfect! I love them. Now I just need to practice so I don't screw them up! ;)

pellet stoves said...

These are simply lovely and I'll give making these a go. Wish me well!

Magenta said...

I love this pattern, but every time I try it I make a mistake and get the holes out of sync :) Therefore, I only have the plain ones from your pattern which I love and my dog has torn to pieces. I'm going to have another go at this pattern. Thank you so much for keeping this site open to us with freebies. jan

In 2010, I had to cancel plans to visit Helen but hope to see her soon.
