Embellish Your Knitting

Cost: $30


Make a swatch: Cast on 60 stitches using a dk or worsted yarn in a light-to-medium solid color and an appropriate needle. Work K2 P2 rib for 3 1/2 inches. Then change to stockinette stitch and work another 3 1/2 inches.

If you make two swatches like this, you will be able to turn them into a pair of embellished fingerless gloves/wrist warmers.
