2017 November Pattern of the Month

HAND WARMERS

Hand warmers are urgently by Knit-a-Square as Ronda has a very limited amount to distribute.  Please can you help by making and sending hand warmers as soon as possible. Thank you. 

Knitted Twisted Rib hand warmers - Diana D (USA)

Knitted Twisted Rib hand warmers – Joan Humm (FRANCE)

Crochet hand warmers – Amy (USA)

 

Original Knitted K2, P2 Rib hand warmers by Rebecca Price (UK)

 

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.  If you are concerned about warmth, please use 100% wool or a wool/acrylic blend with the 4.00mm needles.  The children need to be able to write while wearing the hand-warmers which means a thicker yarn is not practical. Please see photo below.

Hand warmers made by Karen Bennett (UK) and modelled by her 5 year old child.

 

NOTE:  Before sending hand warmers to Knit-a-Square please place one hand-warmer inside the other in order to keep them together.  We ask that you not tie or safety pin them together.  The volunteers must remove all of these fastenings prior to distributing, which is time consuming.

We have three knit and crochet hand warmer patterns in the KAS Pattern Book other patterns are also available, please try as many as you like.
