HAND WARMERS         KNITTED striped hand warmers by Joan Humm (France)

The hand-warmer is designed to keep a child’s wrist and hand covered while leaving the fingers free. This pattern is basically a square that will fold around the hand, leaving an opening for the thumb. The ribbing allows for extra warmth as well as stretch to fit the child as they grow.  The children need to be able to write while wearing the hand warmers which means a thicker yarn is not practical. 

CROCHET handwarmers by Heather Mensah (UK) showing how the hand warmers look when worn.

PLEASE:  Remember to follow the joining instructions in the pattern as Ronda has received some hand warmers with the thumb opening in the middle of the hand warmer so the children’s fingers are completely covered when wearing them.

Beginning at top edge, sew sides together for 1 inch/2.5 cm, leave the next 1.5 in/4 cm open for thumb, sew remainder of sides together.
