I am so happy to have finally created an item for myself that isn’t a scarf! It’s warm and fuzzy and is very useful when I’m driving. Here’s my very first hand warmer.
I used the pattern named Fetching, using size 5 needles instead of 7 since I have smaller than average hands. Everything was going well until I needed to bind off. It required a Picot Bind Off, which I never heard of. After a few minutes of searching, I found a video to help me out. If you plan on making this hand warmer and have never done a Picot Bind off, this video should help you finish the project. She knits continental, so it was a little confusing at first for me to watch, but after some trial and error, I figured it out. Really, all it was was casting on an extra stitch before binding off to create a little extra decorative edge every 5 or 6 stitches in this pattern.
