WIP Wednesday: Halloween Treatwarmers!!
I'm so excited!! Tami (of Candy Skein) has designed a special colorway for my Halloween pattern, Witch Warmers.* The colorway is called "Halloween Treats." Isn't it gorgeous?
Here's the start of a wristwarmer from the pattern, made up in this yummy yarn. The yarn is fingering weight, and the pattern calls for sportweight, so I figured out a couple of minor modifications to accommodate the skinnier yarn:
1. Use one size larger than the pattern's arm/leg/neck measurements call for. Your gauge swatch will come out to around 3" x 3" (8cm x 8cm) instead of 4" x 4" (10.5cm x 10.5 cm).
2. Bind off with a size 5 (3.75mm) needle--one size larger than the rest of the knitting.
*There is also a Witch Warmers in Crochet pattern, which I will work up with this yarn to get the modifications... stay tuned.
