Knitting Tension: 26 x 34 rows on needles size 2.5 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern: See diagram M.1. The diagram is seen from the RS.

Garter sts: Knit all rows.

Rib: *K2, P2*, repeat from *-*.

Left wrist warmer:
The piece is knitted back and forth on needle. Loosely cast on 66 sts on needle size 2.5 mm with Alpaca. P 1 row from the WS. Now knit as follows: 2 sts in garter sts, Rib over the next 60 sts and finish with K2 and 2 edge sts in garter sts (seen from the RS). When piece measures 2 cm P 1 row from the WS, P 1 row from the RS and P1 row from the WS.
Knit next row as follows from the RS:
4 sts in garter sts, K2, P4, M.1 (= 16 sts), *P4, K2*, repeat from *-* over the next 36 sts and finish with 4 sts in garter sts. Continue like this until M.2 has been repeated 3 times (or 4, piece has to measure approx 20 cm incl the Rib). Knit 1 row from the RS, K 1 row from the WS and K 1 row from the RS. Continue in Rib as follows: 2 sts in garter sts, Rib over the next 60 sts and finish with K2 and 2 edge sts in garter sts (seen from the RS). When Rib measures 2 cm knit 1 row and cast off loosely.

Right wrist warmer: Cast on and knit as left wrist warmer, but mirrored, i.e pattern row = 4 sts in garter sts, *K2, P4*, repeat from *-* over the next 36 sts, M.1 (= 16 sts), P4, K2, 4 sts in garter sts.

Assembly: Sew tog the wrist warmer in the outer loops of sts. Leave an opening for the thumb approx 5 cm long at the side, approx 4 cm from the top.
