I opted for a simple rib effect which is just plain old double crochet (US single crochet) worked in the back loops only. The rib stitch gives quite a lot of stretch to the crochet which I like for wrist warmers - rather than looking too ‘tubey’, they will stretch with the contours of your hand and wrist.

You could wear them plain or have a little fun decorating them. I was rummaging through my button drawer and came across a little packet of floral Cath Kidston badges. Ooh pretty.

Then, because I was in a slightly playful mood, I selected a ball of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and made a little frill along the joining seam - just three half trebles (US half doubles) in each stitch.

Frustratingly, I used very slightly more than one ball of yarn to make the pair! Aah well, more leftovers for my stash! ;-)
