My Purl Soho Seed Stitch Hand Warmers are almost done. I wish I had made the larger size but it is too late now (or I am just being lazy). As soon as the first one was big enough to try on, I realized I hadn’t thought this through all the way. I did my standard cast-on and while my hand fits into the fingerless gloves, it has to squeeze into them because the cast on doesn’t have much stretch and for a brief moment it is a full on O.J. glove situation.
When it was time to bind off the first hand warmer, I knew I wanted to use a stretchy bind off. I have used Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off in the past and was happy with the result, so I turned to it once again and it didn’t disappoint.
For the second hand warmer, I did my research and decided on using Jeny’s corresponding Stretch Slipknot Cast-On. It is definitely worth taking the time to do a stretchy bind on. It isn’t very hard to do, so just do it.
