These sleeve extensions took what felt like ages to make – but I’m pretty happy with them in the end. I think that next time I will try them a little tighter though – I used 40 stitches for these, which sit OK on the wrist, but could probably be a bit more fitted.
Today was so cold I actually wore my gloves underneath the sleeves extensions – am I the only person who does this?
Anyway, the pattern is this:
C0 40 stitches
K1, P1 for about 6cm or really as long as you’d like the wrist area to be. I think if you’re wanting to go up to the elbow you’ll need to find a different pattern that has increases.
Then stockinette for the hand part, up to just short of where you’d like it to finish.
Do K1, P1 rib again for 3 rows, then BO and weave the ends in.
