I want to make myself a pair of wrist warmers. I have some gray Red Heart yarn that I am going to use. I have found some patterns online, but I would like to know if anyone has suggestions for a 'design'. For example, this pattern:
The main design for this pattern is the 'cable' that runs along the glove.

If anyone has ideas on a design I can use, please let me know. I can't decide if I should just make them plain (stockinette, rib), or something more elabrate, but they will be all gray. I was thinking of maybe somekind of diamond pattern, but I'm not sure.

I did see those on knitty, but I didn't like how the 2x2 rib turned out on a single color yarn. It looks nice with a variegated yarn tho.  I had a look here http://knitting.about.com/library/blstitches.htm?PM=ss15_knitting but didn't see anything I really liked.

I like stripes, so I am experimenting with something at the moment. I am knitting in the round in stockinette, except every second row, I slip every second stitch. This has for effect of subtle stripes. I can post a picture when I've got a bit done.

I've been obsessed with wristwarmmies since Thanksgiving.  It means that I can finish a project every night (or three or four!).  

My basic pattern is to CO 36 sts of a worsted weight yarn on size 7/8.  K1, p1 in first color for 4-5 rows, depending on what you like best.  k1, p1 of your second color for 12-15 rows and cast off.  Sew together.  Add patch.  

This was all before the intarsia fever set in, so now I'm not using patches.  but all the same.

Besides this glove pattern this site also has a bunch of free knitting patterns!  FREE - my favorite "F" word.

My wrist warmers have been done for a while now, and I've finally decided to take a picture. It's nothing too exciting tho:

I did a few 'tubes' first to see how many stitches I would need. I determined that I needed 42, so that's what I did for the entire warmer. Once I had my desired length, I simply casted off 6 or 7 stitches, and the casted them back on for my thumbhole (I hate thumb gussets), and went for another half inch.

LOL. It does say San Fransisco on it. I got it a thrift store a long time ago. I liked the print on it.

Bah. I really want to make those mikado wrist warmers with the cable but I want them to end before my elbow. where in the pattern should I start for that do you think? i.e. how many should I CO? I feel like it should be pretty obvious but my brain tends to make these things way more complicated than they are. Can anyone help?
