Knitting Spring Wristers Reviewed by Letty Labatte on 2011-04-13 *****
This is a great pattern--very versatile. Change needle size and/or yarn and you have a new look. For a variety of wrister warmers you only need this one pattern.

A great pattern! At the moment, I am working on my 1st lace one.
Thank you so much!

Knitting Spring Wristers Reviewed by Elizabeth Wiznerowicz on 2008-12-14 ****
I have had so much fun making these wristers. I wanted to share my size calculations with everyone. For extra-small child glove, (2 year old) cast on 26 stitches instead of 36, work 8 rows for cuff, and gusset until there are 11 st between markers. Then 8 rows to finish glove and 2 rows for thumb.
For small child (5 year old) cast on 30 st, work for 10 rows for cuff, and gusset until there are 13 st btw markers. Then 8 rows to finish glove and 2 rows for thumb. I used rib for all gloves and size three dp needles.
Hope someone else has as much fun as I did!

I did not use the thinner "sock-ease" but some leftover lightweight yarn I had on hand. That said, the pattern fits a woman's hand nicely, and it's easy to extend the pattern to finish mittens if you like. I can do a glove a day. Going to try the lacey pattern next, just doing ribbing for now and planning hats to match.

Child Sized Reviewed by Grace Jones on 2008-10-29 **
Gauge for Plain Jane (stocking stitch) 28 sts = 4in. That is 7 sts per inch.
This pattern tells you to CO 36 sts. 36 sts divided by 7 = 5.14”.
My average sized adult woman hand is over 8” around at the widest point.

I might be able to stretch 5” to 8”, but I certainly wouldn’t wear anything that tight. (that's 3 inches of needed stretch!) I tried it just to be sure. This pattern makes a small tube the size of a toilet paper roll.

Most of the other reviews for this pattern mention that these were given to a child to wear. Since the pattern is “one size” and not “one size fits all”, I suggest that this pattern is sized for children, not adults.

I have made this, and they are very easy to make.
And my granddhauter really liked them. She says that they are fun to wear.
I would recomend them.

I found a similar pattern and changed to be totally fingeless for Christmas presents for my co-workers to wear during the summer when the airconditioning would be on too high. This allowed them to continue typing and gave them some warmth. My friends are calling my pattern "Glubbies". I also only have an opening for the thumb. They all just love them.

Wristers Reviewed by Linda Hagerman on 2008-06-13 *****
I haven't made this particular pattern-yet-but I have made "hand-warmers" for the last 2 years. I found the pattern in a craft magazine. Being a veteran crocheter, I was at a loss to start. A friend said "I can show you how. Buy the set of 4-double pointed needles and I will teach you. After a couple of false starts, I suddenly "saw the pattern" and have knitted about 30 or so pair. My pattern just leaves a hole for your thumb, so the women at work who get cold hands can still use a keyboard while keeping their hands warm. This looks to be something to drive in and still keep hands warm. Can't wait to try it - and the yarn dyeing to!
