Punky Brewster Wrist Warmers

This pattern is now available as a free PDF download on Ravelry.

I'm not sure why these wrist warmers remind me of Punky Brewster. But I designed them and it's my I figure I can call them whatever I want. Right Punky?

Want the pattern? Okay....since I'm nice. Here it is:

Punky Brewster Wrist Warmers

***This pattern may only be used for personal, non-commercial use. Any other use of this pattern (for example, group knitting, publishing or to sell) requires the specific written permission of the author (that would be me)***

Gauge = approx. 5st = 1” (stockinette) *Because these are ribbed they stretch nicely, gauge isn’t super important as long as it is kind of close
Yarn = 1 ball Pattons Classic Wool Merino in Rosewood
Needles = sz. 7 DPNs or size needed to get close to gauge
Co 40 stitches on DPNs and joint to knit in the round
Place marker to track beginning of round and *K2, P2* until piece measure 5”
Turn work (so you are knitting on the WS – on the inside of your circle) and *K2, P2* until you reach end of row.
Turn again and *K2, P2* until end of row.
Continue back and forth like this for 10 more rows (12 rows total)
At the end of row 12, re-join for knitting in the round until piece measures 8” total
Weave in ends
Repeat for second wrist warmer

Please let me know if you decide to do this pattern. I'd love to know how yours turn out and I'd love to post your pics (or a link) if you'll let me. :-)
