Together in Tweed - wristwarmers for kids and their mums, free pattern!


I finally did find a fun project for my teeny tiny tweed! And I'd love to share it with you:



Child fits mother so hold your baby tight...

In this pattern I teamed up lovely tweed with soft alpaca. Just as good a team as mothers and their kids. Both yarns come in a wide color range so the choices of color combinations are endless. Make one pair to each outfit! One skein of each will give be enough for both mum and kids size!

You'll need
50 g Drops Alpaca
25 g Rowan Fine Tweed
One set of double pointed needles, size 3mm, US size 2,5.
Gauge 9 sts of k1p1 rib on 1''



Toddler size, 1-4 years.
CO 34 sts with Drops Alpaca. Work in rib, k1p1. Work 21 rounds.
Switch to Rowan Fine Tweed and begin to work in moss stitch like this:
Round 1: k1, p1 and repeat. At the same time, decrease 4 sts evenly by knitting or purling two sts together, wichever is applicable = 30 sts.


Round 2: purl the knits and knit the purls.
Round 3: purl the knits and knit the purls.
Continue in pattern by repeating round 2 and 3.
Round 7: work 14 sts, BO 2, continue in pattern.
Work 9 rows in pattern. Join again and work 3 rounds.
Switch to Drops Alpaca and work in rib, k1p1 for 4 rounds, BO loosely. Weave in ends.
Make one more.

    1. American size 1 1/2 = 2.5mm. These are sock-sized needles.
