Wrist Warmers # 5


the hardest part of making these was
 getting a photo on the laptop alone lol


I really needed another pair of wrist warmers, while my fan lace wrist warmers are holding up great. I use them while doing chores outside often and miss them a lot while they are going through the wash lol
   I wanted to be able to move around and not get snagged up on everything, so on the snug side but comfy and fun.
I just put them together from bits of yarn I had around. I did not count yards....just grab any ends you want to use up.....
 I used medium to worsted weight yarns, starting with the thicker yarn at the cuffs...
