Beg every round with dc with 3 ch (= 1st dc), finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

To get a nice color change work last sl st on round with the new thread. Continue on to next round with the new thread.

Beg every round with sc with 1 ch (not counted as 1st sc) - NOTE! Work sc in back loop of every sc, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc.

Ch 6 with Delight on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch. Read ROUNDS WITH DC.
ROUND 1: * Work 3 dc in ch-ring, ch 3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times = 12 dc and 4 ch-spaces. Sl sts until next ch-space, cut the thread and switch to another color of the same ball (= new color each round) - READ COLOR CHANGE.
ROUND 2: In every ch-space work as follows: 3 dc, ch 3 and 3 dc, 1 ch = 24 dc and 8 ch-spaces. Sl sts until next ch-space, cut the thread and switch to another color of the same ball.
ROUND 3: * In next ch-space work as follows: 3 dc, 3 ch and 3 dc (= corner), ch 1, in next ch-space work 3 dc, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 dc and 12 ch-spaces. Cut and fasten the thread.
Work a total of 3 squares. Work squares tog into 1 strip as follows: Place 2 and 2 squares on top of each other, insert hook through ch-space in the corner on both squares, ch 1 and 1 sc, * ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space on both squares *, repeat from *-*, cut and fasten the thread. Work the ends of the strip tog the same way to form a ring.

Worked in the round - NOTE! Beg every round with ch 3 (= 1st dc). Work along one side of strip with squares as follows:
SIZE S/M: In each of the 4 ch-spaces on every square work 3 dc = 36 dc.
SIZE L/XL: In each of the 4 ch-spaces on every square work 3 dc - AT THE SAME TIME inc 4 sts evenly = 40 dc.
All sizes: = 36-40 dc. Then work ROUNDS WITH DC - read explanation above - until piece measures 5-6 cm / 2''-2 3/8'' from strip = (bottom part of wrist warmer), cut and fasten the thread.
Repeat the same way on the other side of strip with squares (= upper part of wrist warmer), but work an opening for thumb when piece measures approx. 2½-3 cm / 7/8"-1 1/8"'' from strip as follows: Work 8-10 dc, then ch 4, skip 4 dc, continue with dc the entire round. Continue with round with dc (work 4 dc in ch-space on next round) until piece measures 6-7 cm / 2 3/8"-2 3/4'' from strip with squares. Then work ROUNDS WITH SC - read explanation above. Cut and fasten the thread when edge in sc measures approx. 1½ cm / ½''.
Piece measures approx. 19-21 cm / 7½"-8 1/4'' in length.

Worked in the round as follows: Work 12 dc along the entire opening (1st dc = 3 ch), finish with 1 sl st in 1st dc.
Then work rounds with dc until thumb measures approx. 2½ cm / 7/8'', cut and fasten the thread.

Work the same way as on left wrist warmer but reversed - i.e. round with opening for thumb is worked when 12-14 dc remain, then ch 4, skip 4 dc, work the remaining 8-10 dc on round.
