Annefødder wrist warmers

This pattern is not at all my pattern, I've just slightly modified and translated it (with permission) from Anne’s scarf pattern, which can be found on her lovely blog Hverken fugl eller fisk. The blog and the original pattern are both written in Danish.

A note on the name of this pattern: The Danish word for Duck's feet is andefødder, and since the author's name is Anne, the pattern simply must be called Annefødder, as in Anne's feet..

Gauge: about 28-30 st = 10 cm in stockinette stitch.

CO 54 sts using Old Norwegian cast on or another elastic cast on method.

Row 1 [RS]: knit
Row 2 [WS]: knit
Row 3 [RS]: k1, [k6, increase 5 sts by working (k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1) in the next st, k6] x 4, k1
Row 4 [WS]: k1, [k6, p6, k6] x 4, k1
Row 5 [RS]: knit
Row 6 [WS]: as row 4
Row 7 [RS]: k1, [k2tog x 2, k4, yo, k2, yo, k4, k2tog x 2] x 4, k1
Row 8 [WS]: k1, [k4, p8, k4] x 4, k1
Row 9 [RS]: k1, [k2tog x 3, yo, k1, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k2tog x 3] x 4, k1
Row 10 [WS]: k1, [k2, p9, k2] x 4, k1

Repeat until desired length. Work 2 rows of garter stitch, bind off on RS using an elastic bind off method. My favorite is Elizabeth Zimmermann’s sewn cast off (from Knitting Without Tears). Close the side seam, weave in ends, block the beauties and voila!

And please leave a comment with a link to your blog (if you have one) - I would really like to see a picture of your version of the Annefødder!

De er blevet så fine, Tora, jeg må straks i gang med et par.
Og nok også en oversættelse til dansk, tror du ikke??

They are very nice! Kan riktigt se ankfötterna! Blir bra julklappar, startar snart men först är det sockor som gäller!Hälsn Kine

MORGAN said...

is there an opening for the thumb or is it only for the wrist? I want to make longer ones with a thumb opening too...
did you use sockyarn?

Tora said...

Morgan, there is no thumb on these, so you'd have to make that up yourself. And I didn't use sock yarn, but I guess that would work just fine. Good luck!

Thank you very much for this pattern, I'm going to add these lovely wristwarmers to my to do list !

Beautiful pattern! Thank you for sharing!!! :)

And to Morgan, you can make a simple thumb space by leaving a gap when sewing the side seam. :)

Brie said...

Thanks for the gorgeous pattern. I'm a bit of a beginner and so I'm wondering how you would suggest I do the increase (k1, p1, k1, p1, k1, p1 into same stitch)? Knit into front, purl into back?

Tora said...

Hi Brie, please contact me by e-mail for pattern inquiries. I'll be glad to help you, but it is a lot easier by mail than on the blog..

Clair said...

Lovley pattern. Thanks a lot! One question: why is it worked flat, and how do you finnish them?

Diann said...

Could you tell me what size needles you used?

Tora said...

Needle size depends heavily on yarn chosen, so I suggest you read this post on choosing needle sizes. Good luck!
