Quick gifts are a ‘must’ for this festive time of year! You can knit these in a jiffy for your texting and dog walking friends. The slipped stitch pattern uses just one color per round, so there are no Knitting Gymnastics you will need to do.

The instructions are for a woman’s hand, but additional instructions tell you how to size these for smaller or larger hands easily.

For the women’s size, which fits hands with knuckles from 6” / 15 cm to 8” / 20 cm, you need only:

100 yards / 92 meters worsted weight yarn in Color A
20 yards/ 18 meters worsted weight yarn in Color B
20 yards / 18 meters worsted weight yarn in Color C

These amounts give plenty of options for using those small balls of leftover yarn in your stash.
