After working in the sportswear industry as a clothing designer, Project Weekend founder Spring Harrison began yearning for the slower pace of making her own things again. Each season, Project Weekend release a collection of premium yarn based projects that include all of the tools, materials and patterns so you can create beautiful items for yourself, your home, and for loved ones.
Knit your very own ultra-cozy rib knit wrist warmers, that you won't ever want to take off, even when indoors! Featuring a classic 2x1 rib knit construction, and low profile silhouette, you can throw these on to add a quick, ultra-soft boost of warmth to your fall wardrobe.
