Rose's Wrist Warmers

In the middle of summer I'm knitting wrist warmers. And for a summer birthday no less. I'm continuing my streak of knitting Doctor Who patterns - these are for a friend who only recently became a fan. The pattern is fantastic, with an easy-to-follow chart. Color coded. Awesome.
I used smaller needles and different yarn than in the pattern, but I'm super satisfied with the result.

The only trouble with this project was finding the right colored yarn. I bought 4 different shades of pink/purple/plum before deciding on this color. Still not the same as in the show, but closest, given the choices I had.

Pattern: Rose's Wrist Warmers (also known as Doomsday Wrist Warmers)
Yarn: Iva, 1 skein and a little bit more
Needles: 3 mm DPN
Time it took: 10 days


  1. nice job! I am dong the similiar thing, I have been knitting socks in July :)

  2. well done! love the blog look! so neat!

  3. Hi
    I want to make this but I can't find the yarn you used. Can you help me out? I'd appreciate it. Thanks alot.

  4. Hi an.jee!
    The yarn is Czech, I bought it here in Croatia. I don't know if you can get it in the US.
    But for this project it really doesn't matter, you can use whatever you want. I think the pattern calls for Peru DK Luxury Alpaca, but I've also seen people use Cascade yarns. Basically, anything that gives you the right gauge.
