A line cannot exist alone; it always brings a companion along. Do remember that one line does nothing; it is only in relation to another that it creates a volume -

Notes, please read before you start
The wrist warmers are worked from the cuff up, increases are made before separating to create the thumb.
My wrists are 14.5cm circ. Anything less than 14cm and you should aim to make the Small. Anything more than 17cm and you will probably need to make the Large size.
