Bamboo Wristies

Sorry, it's been awhile. I have been designing, and have a number of patterns in the works as we speak. For the moment, though, it's time to catch up on the Ravelry-released patterns and on my goal of posting a new pattern every month or so!

So here they are, a lovely summer accessory, my Bamboo Wristies (link to Ravelry download page)

Worked in the round, this pattern is quick and fun, and makes an eye-catching finished product! The modified chevron stitch results in a nifty “wave effect” at both the top and bottom edges of the gloves!

It comes with directions for one size which should fit most women’s hands, but you may want to move up or down a needle size if you’re unsure.

This is a knit pattern is available for $2.50 USD.

They are pictured worked in 170-190 yards of Idena Bamboo, an aran weight yarn with a gauge of 10 stitches and 12 rows = 2 inches in stockinette. Needle size is US 7 / 4.5 mm (DPNs), and the size show is 8.5" long and 4" wide laid flat
