Ball & Skein Pulse Warmers 2023 (Digital Download)


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, 2020, 2021, (we skipped 2022) and now, 2023! 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! ** SKILLS USED -Knit & purl, cast on & bind off -Knitting in the round ** MATERIALS Yarn Cardiff Cashmere Classic distributed by Trendsetter Yarn Group, (100% cashmere); 122 yds/112m per 25g ball, 1 ball.
