FO: Fishtail Wristwarmers

Pattern: Fishtail Wristwarmers by Alexandra Brinck
Yarn: Tosh Merino Light in Steam Age
Needles: US#2 Hiya Hiya Sharp Interchangeable
Mods: I knit three repeats of the pattern before beginning the thumb gusset since I was using a partial ball of Tosh and didn't want to run out. It turned out that this project used up the remaining partial with a couple of yards to spare! Since Tosh Merino Light is a single and has a tendency to fuzz I wanted a pattern that had design elements to limit that fuzziness. The ribbing on these is twisted rib and the palm (not shown) is in a twisted broken rib pattern which has the added benefit of looking extra crisp in this soft yarn.


  1. Super pretty, and a great match of yarn and pattern! I have a partial ball of Tosh Merino Light left over from a hat that might need to become these...

  2. These are very cute! Listening to your newest podcast, I wanted to recommend Feed and Deadline by Mira Grant - they're part of an excellent zombie trilogy that I'm really enjoying - I found it after seeing these socks on Ravelry: which I think are genius.

  3. That yarn, color, and pattern are really the perfect match. Bueno for sure! I think I might have to put those on my ravelry queue.
