?? | tekk? : Japanese for (n) hand guard from traditional Japanese Samurai Armour circa 16th Century.
Cosy handwarmers and armwarmers designed with reverse stocking stitch to provide a monolithic dimension to the knitted fabric, with stocking stitch stripes and vertical expressed seam edge provide detail and contrast to the assymmetric short-row shaping across the fingers of the hand.
These are the perfect one skein project using Brooklyn Tweed's Sheleter yarn. Enjoy!
Tekk? Handwarmers, shown in Brooklyn Tweed Shelter Soot (grey), have thumbhole; Tekk? Armwarmers, shown in Shibui Heichi Colour Solar (yellow) have NO thumbhole.
The Shibui Heichi version are knit in silk and therefore a 'decorative accessory' rather than a 'warm accessory'!
Pattern provides detailed instructions, including a photographic tutorial for the Expressed Seamless Edge Pattern, many photos and schematics.
The hand warmers are seamless but worked back and forth "in the round" on circular needles to create the expressed edge along the seam line.
Size shown on model: L (8in/20.5cm palm/hand circumference).
