When I made my first pair of wristwarmers last year, I was not sure if I would wear them very much. I made them because it was a nice little project and they looked so cute. But they got lots of wear. Therefore I decided I needed a second pair. This time I made the Goya wristwarmers. This is a free pattern, also from Alexandra Brinck that I found on ravelry. They feature a leaf motif on the front while the palm-side is worked in twisted, broken rib.
The pattern was quite easy. I did have to do some unraveling, but this was totally my fault because I made some mistakes and I wanted everything to be perfect. And for this little project this did not bother me at all to unravel.
The yarn is again LANA Grossa Cool Wool this time in anthracite. I knitted the wristwarmes with a bamboo set of 5 douple pointed knitting needles size 3mm. I know that many do rather like knitting with circular needles, but not me. And I especially love the feel of the bamboo needles.
Now that summer is definitively gone these ones will get a lot of wear until it is cold enough for full gloves.

Love these, they are beautiful! Thanks for sharing ☺
These are beautiful. I love wrist warmers but mostly just convert skinny wool sweater sleeves into long elbow length ones. Looks like it’s time to try knitting a pair. Off to find the pattern next…
I love knitting wristwarmers. They are finished within a reasonable time and can look so cute.
