I knit this last night. I did it with purl on the outside and I tried Norwegian purling for the yarn carried in the left hand. I ended up switching yarns around so they weren’t always carried by the same hand. In fact at one point I had the yarns around my neck and I was just using my left hand. It seemed to stop the yarns from getting twisted up around each other.
Next: It would be interesting to see what would happen if the lighter color was the main color.
Pattern: Wrist Warmer self designed using Anna Zilboorg’s Turkish Stitches chart
Yarn: Knit Picks Cotton Shine Sport in blue (hydrangea) and pale green (silver sage)
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)
I cast on 48 stitches using a long tail cast on and knit k2, p2 rib for 5 rows. I then purled the body of the wrist warmer carrying the yarn in front.
For the first round I purled 2 blue, followed by 2 green for one round
For rounds 2 & 3 I purled in green above blue and blue above green.
Next I did two repeats of the Turkish stitch.
To end I repeated the 2 green and 2 blue
Finally k2,p2 rib for five rounds
Bind off using Russian/Grumperiana’s bind off.
Duplicate stitch the one spot where I had got a blue instead of a green. Sigh.
Sew in ends.
Grin widely as you turn it to the right side as it looks good.
