Pink HandWarmers

This pattern was a special request from one of my deviantART friends.   I designed these quite some time ago for my 15 year old daughter,  well I designed about a dozen different hand warmers for her,  since she wears them all the time so I have many patterns for these.

I like wearing hand warmers too,  I have severe rheumatoid arthritis and the added warmth from wearing these (especially when I'm sleeping)  keeps my hands from getting as stiff or sore.... Now if I could just figure out a way to make a 'hip warmer' for my left hip  LOL


Hand Warmers

These hand warmers fit a small adult or teenager's hand.  You can increase the overall size by increasing the number of rows at the wrist/cuff.  Then simply follow the pattern (adding the appropriate number of stitches to the ( ) at the end of each row.

For instance,  if you increase the wrist/cuff size by 2 rows,  then the number of stitches at the beginning of the 'hand' portion will increase by two,  the total number of stitches in the increase rows will increase by two.

After making a few of these,  you get a good feeling for the pattern's 'theory'  and can easily increase or decrease the sizes as you need them.

Using a G hook and your favorite WW yarn :

Wrist/Cuff

Row 1:  ch 6,  sc in 2nd ch from hook and remaining chs,  (5)
Row 2,  working in back loops only,  sc in each sc across  (5)
Row 3-28:  repeat row 2  (5)
Do not fasten off.  Bring both ends of the cuff together and slip stitch carefully to end of the row.  Turn and work 28 sc evenly around the cuff,  (one sc in the end of each row),  join the round to the first sc

You now have a 'ring'  with a total of 28 sc topping of your ribbed cuff.  You will need to join your rounds with a slip stitch in the first sc of each round,  then Ch 1 to begin next round

Right hand warmer:

Rnd 1:  sc in same sc as join and each sc around  (28)
Rnd 2:  sc in same sc as join,  2 sc in next sc,  sc in each sc around to last 2 sc,   2 sc in next to last sc, and sc in last sc of round,  join and ch 1  (30)
Rnd 3:  repeat round 1  (30)
Rnd 4:  repeat round 2  (32)
Rnd 5-11:  repeat round 1  (32)
Rnd 12:  sc in next 22 sc,  ch 4,  skip 8 sc,  sc in last 2 sc  (24 sc,  4 ch )
Rnd 13:  sc in each sc and each ch around,  (28)
Rnd 14:  sc in each sc around (28)
Rnd 15:  sc in first sc, * ch 2,  skip one sc,  sc in next sc *,  repeat from * to *  around,  end with ch2 and slip stitch in first sc.
Rnd 16:  slip stitch to ch 1 sp.    ch 3,  slip stitch in next ch 1 sp,  * ch 2,  slip stitch in  next ch 1 sp *, repeat from * to * 1 more time.    Try on the hand warmer  (make sure you put it on the right hand)  look and see where the 'finger loop' will need to be  (it's different for each person),  mark that sp,  and continue around  as before  to marked space,  sc in that space,  ch 11,  sc in same space,  ch 2 and continue to end of round,  end with ch 2 and slip stitch in first slip stitch.
F/O and weave in ends.

Left hand warmer:

Work cuff as above.

Rnd 1:  sc in same sc as join and each sc around  (28)
Rnd 2:  sc in same sc as join,  2 sc in next sc,  sc in each sc around to last 2 sc,   2 sc in next to last sc, and sc in last sc of round,  join and ch 1  (30)
Rnd 3:  repeat round 1  (30)
Rnd 4:  repeat round 2  (32)
Rnd 5-11:  repeat round 1  (32)
Rnd 12:  sc in next 2 sc,  ch 4,  skip 8 sc,  sc in last 22 sc  (24 sc,  4 ch )
Rnd 13:  sc in each sc and each ch around,  (28)
Rnd 14:  sc in each sc around (28)
Rnd 15:  sc in first sc, * ch 2,  skip one sc,  sc in next sc *,  repeat from * to *  around,  end with ch2 and slip stitch in first sc.
Rnd 16:  slip stitch to ch 1 sp.    ch 3,  slip stitch in next ch 1 sp,  * ch 2,  slip stitch in  next ch 1 sp *, repeat from * to * 1 more time.    Try on the hand warmer  (make sure you put it on the left hand)  look and see where the 'finger loop' will need to be  (it's different for each person),  mark that sp,  and continue around  as before  to marked space,  sc in that space,  ch 11,  sc in same space,  ch 2 and continue to end of round,  end with ch 2 and slip stitch in first slip stitch.
F/O and weave in ends.
