Wristwarmers can really keep the hands warm in chilly weather, while leaving the fingers free for important tasks, from crocheting to using your tablet or cell phone. Here are patterns for a "plain" and a "fancy" version. As shown, both come to about the middle of the forearm. Both length and size are easily customized. Pattern price: $ 6.00

"Fancy" uses two 50-gram balls (115 yds each) Katia Gatsby, Color 88502, black with silver; AND one 20-gram ball (85 yds) Trendsetter Metal, Color 20, black with pewter and gold; two hooks (G-6 (4mm) and G-7 (4.5 mm). Gauge is 25 sts = 1" using the smaller hook and the Katia Gatsby yarn.
