For this project you will need:
- fingering weight sock yarn in two different colors (here the color black was combined with a second color) The yarn is about
420 meters/100 g skein
- a set of 5 double pointed metric size 4 knitting needles (US 6, UK 8), 15 centimeters or 6 inches long
- large eye needle for sewing threads when finished
Experience with knitting tubes is useful.
You will be doubling your yarn throughout the whole project. For the multi-colored rows, you use 1 x color yarn + 1 black yarn and for the black rows you use the black yarn doubled.
Knitting gauge: (measured slightly stretched) 24 stitches and 29 rows = 10 x 10 centimeters (approximately 4 x 4 inches)
Knitting Pattern: A simple rib stitch using *2 right stitches and then 2 left stitches repeating again from * (this makes the wrist warmes very stretchy and they will fit snug on your wrist)
Stripes Pattern: 10 rounds of color yarn + black and then 3 rounds of black yarn doubled
