Using 4 mm knitting needles, cast on 28 sts and knit as follows:
Row 1: K4, p4, k12, p4, k4.
Row 2: K8, p12, k8.
Row 3: K4, p4, C8B, k4, p4, k4.
Row 4: K8, p12, k8.
Row 5: K4, p4, k12, p4, k4.
Row 6: K8, p12, k8.
Row 7: K4, p4, k4, C8F, p4, k4.
Row 8: K8, p12, k8.
Repeat rows 1- 8 until the entire warmer measures 34 (38,42,46) cm/ 13.4 (14.9,16.5,18.1) inches, ending on row 1.
Cast off in patt, leaving a tail end approximately 3 times the width of the warmer for seaming.
TO MAKE UP:
Hold the two end pieces together, flat with the right side facing up. Using the tail end and a wool needle, join the warmer together by weaving together the first and last row of stitches running along the bound edges. This method will be a less visible and bulkier seam than a traditional seaming method. Sew in all ends.
So there you have it! I really hope you enjoy this free pattern. Don’t forget to pin it or share the link to your knitting friends as it really helps support my site!
