Most beginner knitter’s first project is a scarf, but these wrist warmers could just as easily become your first knitting project. Much like a scarf they are just knitted rectangles. There is a tutorial right in the pattern that describes how to sew them up into sweet hand cozies. Shown with 2-coloured stripes, but they are an even easier knit with one colour. You choose! Bonus- they will be done a lot quicker then a scarf and use less yarn too!
