Ball & Skein Pulse Warmers 2018 (Digital Download)


We loved the term ‘pulse warmer’, brought to us by a visitor from the UK, so in 2018 we designed our own. These simple “Pulse Warmers” are a quick knit and can be easily sized to fit any hand. As they have no thumb holes they’re more accessible to a wide variety of knitters. We chose cashmere because it’s soft, warm, and a delight to wear. Everyone needs a pair!
