Willie Warmers for cold days/nights!

VTandPTguy's picture

Just finished four Willie Warmers adapted from patterns by Robert Jenkins and QueerJoe found on Ravelry. We're having four friends up to our Vermont farmhouse for a ski weekend -- and I wanted some "pillow gifts" for them. Surely these will help keep things warm on the cold slopes! I've written up a detailed pattern. Contact me if you'd like a copy.

I've actually made a few of these...uh...garments...and even worn one of them.

I would have to say, the one I made/wore was quite comfortable and very warm. I would also remind Scottly that most knitted fabric stretches...at least a bit.

Dude, can you see how

Dude, can you see how tightly those things are knit - we'er definitely talking restraints. I'm not saying reatraints can't be fun. :-O
