These wristwarmers are part of a set which features a pretty Fair Isle pattern.

Mary Henderson loves to design Fair Isle patterns. “The wristwarmers are tubes so can be pulled over fingers or pushed out of the way up the arm“ says Mary.
”Scheepjes Metropolis yarn has a soft handle, and works well for this relaxed design.”

Scheepjes Metropolis (4ply weight; 65% extrafine merino wool, 25% nylon; 200m/219yds per 50g ball).
1 x 50g ball of each shade: A) Santiago (053); B) Johannesburg (054); C) Tokyo (061); D) Warsaw (072).
Note: these yarn quantities are enough to make the larger size hat, wristwarmers and a pompom.
