Wrist-warmers with an Estonian touch

These are a pair of wristlets/wrist-warmers  that I made using a traditional technique often seen on Estonian mittens. The result looks like entrelac, but it is not. It is very easy (and fun) to knit. You need yarn in two colours. You only use one colour at a time. You change colour every fourth row.  All you have to do is to repeat *k2, yo, k2, k2tog*  and after 10-12 rows you will see you work starting to "spiral" and the the entrelac effect will be clearly visible. The finished fabric is very stretchy and well suited for wrist-warmers or cuffs.

  1. I will try that, it fits perfectly to the rest of my blue and grey yarn, so I will have stranded norwegian socks, a stranded hat and these wristwarmers - all in same good color!

    I am curious how to knit this, thank you for the inspiration!

  2. Så snygga och visst är det fiffigt med att det är så enkelt att sticka fiskfjäll ;-)
