For another friend’s birthday I knitted a pair of handwarmers using Knitty’s Fetching pattern and I’m really happy with them. I used Red Heart Soft Touch (100% acrylic) in a sort of lilacy blue on 4mm double-pointed needles. They’re comfortable and soft and they actually look a lot better than I thought they would. I didn’t think I’d like so many cables judging from the photos on Knitty’s website but I actually do. I definitely recommend the pattern; they’re so easy and quick to knit up and they make perfect presents. The only thing I changed is the picot edge – I just bound off in pattern.
