Knitting Tension: 21 x 28 rows on needles size 4 mm in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Pattern: See diagram M.1.

Right wrist warmer:
Cast on 40-48 sts on double pointed needle size 3 mm with light grey. Knit 10 cm Rib, K2/P2. Change to double pointed needles size 4 mm and knit 1 round, at the same time for size S/M inc 1 st = 41 sts.
Now continue in M.1. After 2 rounds of M.1 insert a marker at the beg of round and make inc for thumb as follows:
1st round: Knit without inc
2nd round: Knit without inc
3rd round: Knit until 1 st left before the marker, inc 1 st (incorporate new sts in pattern as you go along)
4th round: Knit 1 st, inc 1 st in the second st after the marker and finish the round.
Repeat round 1 to 4 until there are 6 new sts on each side of the MT = 53-60 sts. Knit 2 rounds and then put the 12 thumb sts on a thread. On the next round cast on 2 new sts behind the 12 thumb sts = 43-50 sts on round. Finish M.1, piece measures approx 24 cm. Change to double pointed needles size 3 mm and knit 5 rounds in Rib with light grey and cast off loosely.
Thumb: Put the 12 thumb sts on double pointed needles size 3 mm and pick up 2 new sts in the 2 sts cast on behind sts on thread = 14 sts. Knit 1 round and at the same time adjust the number of sts to 12- 16 sts. Knit 4 rounds in Rib with light grey. Cast off loosely.

Left wrist warmer: Cast on and knit as right wrist warmer, but insert the marker in size L/XL in the 9th st from beg of round.
