PATTERN: Star Struck Wristwarmers

If you're on Ravelry, you can see the project and purchase/download from here:

If not, here's the link to purchase without a Ravelry account needed:

Yarn weight: DK / 8 ply (11 wpi)
Gauge: 5.75 stitches = 1 inch in star stitch
Needle size: US 8 / 5.0 mm
Yardage: 100 - 150 yards

This pattern is available for $3.00.

This gender-neutral pattern was written to highlight the special characteristics of a good handspun yarn, but can certainly be knit in a luscious commercial yarn with outstanding results.

This can be mostly knit on an 8 to 12 inch circular (all but the thumb), depending on the size you are making. Otherwise, it can be knit on DPNs, two circulars, or magic looped on a long circular.

I do recommend pointy needles to make the k3togs easier on your hands, especially if you knit tightly.

Many thanks to Rebecca and Kerry for their excellent test knitting/technical review.
