easy flat knit hand warmers

It doesn't get much easier than this lol
Knit on two needles and seamed along side leaving an opening for thumb

this pattern is for a smaller sized hand, adjust size by adding more stitches and knit rows or going up in needle size and/or yarn thickness

I didn't count the amount of yarn I used I do know it was less than 50 yds for both easily.

gauge 6sts by 5 rows per one inch
size 9 US needles

cast on 25 sts. leave a tail for seaming

k = knit
p = purl
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
straight stitch =  knit one row, purl the next continue in this manner

1-6 ) k1, p1 to end

7-20 ) straight stitch

21 ) k2tog, k10, k2tog, k11 ( this brings it just a bit smaller for top by fingers, this step is optional )

22- 24 ) straight stitch

25-29 ) k1, p1

bind off leaving 6 or so inches of yarn to seam top of warmer

I seamed just a bit more than the ribbing rows on both the top and bottom, I like a big thumb opening, adjust to your liking. Weave in ends.
