We loved the term ‘pulse warmer’, brought to us by a visitor from the UK, so in 2018 we designed our own. We had so much fun doing that, we decided to do it again for 2019!
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!
