View Full Version : FO - 'Fetching' Inspired Wrist Warmer
10-02-2006, 02:35 PM
Ok, so I posted a FO of 'Fetching' (from www.knitty.com ) over in the KAL but after I did, I proceeded to frog it :doh: .
I liked it okay, but the cable thing just wasn't working for me, it had come out too tight and I wasn't totally happy with the overall fit, due to lacking a thumb gusset - I don't exactly have petite hands so it just didn't work for me.
So I came up with my own version!!!!! I loosely based it on a few different pattern, combined them, and this is what I came up with. I'd be happy to share my 'pattern' if anyone is interested.

Those are so pretty. I like the lace detail. I didn't realize Fetching didn't have a thumb gusset.

I like those much better! I'm not a big fetching fan but those are darling.

Well, these have veeeeeery little cabling in them - just one round. It's got more lace than cables, for sure. Hope you enjoy them anyways!!

Thanks, knitqueen. I might be making these for my mom instead of the regular fetching pattern--I love the lace detail!
