sleevettes

robert gave me a romantic weekend trip to paris for christmas and when i checked the forecast, it predicted warmish weather, around 10°C. great, i thought, i'll get to wear my new fifties-style jacket! and because the sleeves don't quite reach my hands, i thought i'd make some gauntlets or wrist warmers, but couldn't find a pattern that i liked, so i decided to make my own - and i'll share to with you. so, these are my new sleevettes!

glitterhippos-sleevettes-2

to make your own sleevettes, you'll need:
? yards dk weight yarn (about as much as you'd need for a pair of socks, hints and estimates greatly appreciated!), i used 5/14NM cash/wool from ColourMart
1 set of dpns or circular needle, 2,5mm
1 set of dpns or circular needle, 3mm
stitch marker, cable needle or fifth dpn (both optional)
tapestry needle for weaving in the ends

techniques:
cable 2 front (c2f) is worked thus:
option one - with a cable needle: slip two stitches purlwise onto the cable needle and let hang to the front. knit two stitches from left needle, the knit the two stitches from the cable needle. continue in pattern.
option two - without a cable needle: leaving the first and second stitch untouched, insert your right needle knitwise into the third and fourth stitch. use the inserted needle to push the first and second stitch off the left needle, also slip off the third and fourth stitch. you now have two "loose live" stitches and two slipped stitches on your right needle. slip the loose live stitches back onto your left needle, being careful not to twist. now slip the two stitches from the right needle back to the left needle and knit across all four stitches. continue in pattern. please see the excellent video at knittinghelp.com (you need to scroll down a little to "decorative stitches") glitterhippos-sleevettes
