Handwarmers are worked in the round from the cuff up. The rib fabric is very stretchy and will fit a range of palm sizes. Please choose the size that is slightly smaller than your palm. This pattern is written to use DPNs, however it can also be worked with magic loop or very short circular needles if you prefer.
