INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. Choose diagram for your size. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced):
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needles (e.g. 42 stitches) and divide by the number of decreases to be made (e.g. 4) = 10.5. In this example, knit together alternately every 9th and 10th stitch and every 10th and 11th stitch.
----------------------------------------------------------

WRIST WARMER:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles.
Cast on 42-48 stitches with double pointed needles size 3 mm and BabyAlpaca Silk. Work A.1 (= 14-16 stitches – choose diagram for your size) 3 times in width to end of round. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1 has been completed, knit 1 round where you decrease 4-6 stitches evenly on round – read DECREASE TIP (evenly spaced) = 38-42 stitches. Continue in stocking stitch until the piece measures 13-14 cm. Work 2 RIDGES – see description above, then work the first 6 rounds in diagram A.1.
Below we describe two different casting off methods. The one is with assembly, the other without. Choose the method which suits you best:

CASTING OFF WITHOUT ASSEMBLY:
Fold the row of holes (i.e. round 4 in A.1) so that wrong side is towards wrong side and cast off as follows:
Place the first stitch from round 1 in A.1 on the left needle, knit together this stitch and the next stitch on the left needle and cast them off. Place the second stitch from round 1 in A.1 on the left needle, knit together this stitch and the next stitch on the left needle and cast them off. Continue like this, knitting together one stitch from round 1 in A.1 and the next stitch on the left needle and casting off. NOTE: To avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after every 4th stitch. The yarn over is cast off as a normal stitch. Work 1 more wrist warmer in the same way.

CASTING OFF WITH ASSEMBLY:
Cast off, but make sure the cast-off edge is not tight! Fold the row of holes (i.e. round 4 in A.1) to the back of the wrist warmer so that wrong side is to wrong side. Sew each stitch from the cast-off edge to each stitch on the round 1 in A.1. Make sure the seam is not tight!
Work 1 more wrist warmer in the same way.

Diagram

= knit
= purl
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= knit 2 stitches together
= knit 4 stitches together as follows: Knit 4 stitches, place them back on the left needle and pass the next outermost stitch over the outermost stitch. Repeat until all 3 stitches have been passed over (= 3 stitches decreased), place the last knitted stitch back on the right needle.
= knit 4 stitches twisted together as follows: Knit 4 stitches, pass the next to last stitch knitted over the last stitch knitted, so that this stitch lies around the last stitch, repeat until all 3 stitches have been passed over (= 3 stitches decreased).
= this round is worked as follows: Fold row of holes (= round 4 in the diagram) so that wrong side is towards wrong side. Place the first stitch on the cast-on edge outermost on the left needle, knit together the first 2 stitches on the needle (i.e. first stitch on cast-on edge + first stitch on round knitted together). Place the next stitch from the cast-on edge on the left needle, knit the first 2 stitches together (i.e. the next stitch from the cast on edge + next stitch on the round are knitted together). Continue like this knitting together the next stitch from the cast-on edge with the next stitch on the round until all stitches on the round have been knitted together with the stitches from the cast-on edge.
