Repeat instructions from Left Hand Wrister from ** to **

Before assembly, be sure to block both panels.

The buttons will be placed on the 10th ridge of the panel, counting from the scalloped edge. Or, on the 2nd ridge from the straight edge. Place one button on each scalloped crest. I found sewing the button with regular thread easier than with yarn. The buttons are located one one ridge right before the thumbhole.

  • As always, very impressive and beautiful, Isela!

  • Which loom is suggested?


  • Sock Loom 2.

  • Lovely.

  • Ooops! I meant for that previous comment to be attached to this wristers…they’re so pretty! 😀

  • I have just purchased my first knitting board,,the sock 2. I made my first sock was a bit funky. Any tips you can give me?

  • Will you be making a video for the Vines Wristers? They are so pretty.

  • No, I was not planning a video for this project.

  • Lovely!
    Glad you have posted the instructions. The ‘free download’ pdf of this has some funky ending instruction, talking about using the kitcheners stitch to finish the toe…and to be careful when putting beads on socks since they might not be comfortable to wear with shoes!

    After the Peaks wristers pattern in one of the books (my current project), this one should be easy enough to figure out. 🙂 (hoping!)
