trunKate Wrist Warmers - Free Pattern

      
This week's pattern gave me some trouble. I ended up reworking it in several different yarns before I found the perfect fit with Vanna's Choice, in Barley. I am beyond happy with the finished product though. The are a super fast knit (I finished one in about 2 hours) and I think they would make a beautiful present. In fact, I originally planned on giving these away but I fell in love with them so into the 'hat basket' they go. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! 

I noticed today that there is a striking resemblance between the trunKate stitch pattern & the Ava Lynne stitch pattern. What can I say? I guess I love me some serpentine eyelets. *shrug* ;) 



This pattern is #4 of the 14 weeks of Free Patterns! 10 to go!
