These wrist warmers are all about symmetry. The same chart is used for both gloves, each line can be read from either direction, and the wrist chart is literally flipped upside-down to become the hand chart. Their name, Tumut, after a small town at the foot of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, is also symmetric (ie, palindromic). The pattern grows out of the twisted ribbing that forms the band and travels diagonally across the stocking stitch background. The twisted stitch pattern also features in the thumb. The wrist edge is rounded, yet no shaping is required. These features give a lot of pattern interest with very little effort, and all from one 50g ball of yarn.

Twisted Jumbuck Designs
I am an Australian knitwear designer with a love of twisted stitches and innovative techniques. "Jumbuck" is an old Australian word for sheep, so I publish my patterns as Twisted Jumbuck Designs.
