Want matching handwarmers to go with your Hitchhiker shawlette? This is the pattern for you! Just 40-50 g of handpainted variegated fingering weight yarn will add a funky little detail to your autumn wardrobe. Garter stitch lets the color changes flow into each other, and the biased construction and spiky borders are charming without being too frilly. Using the same instructions and another 60 g of yarn you can make a matching cowl that is just right for those chilly days before winter when a scarf would still be too warm.
The pattern includes instructions for both the handwarmers and the cowl (they are essentially the same, but for the cowl you knit more repeats). You start with a provisional cast-on. The spiky borders evolve as you go, and in the end you graft the stitches of the last row to the live stitches of the provisional cast-on. Don‘t worry if you have never done this before: I provide instructional videos for the provisional cast-on, the technique needed to make the border and the garter-stitch grafting.
