Those came out beautifully, I love them and I am insanely jealous!!  I really wanted to make these with lion brand clover yarn, which is this great spring-y green, and then attatch some crotchet flowers to the  wrist ends..  BUT:  I just couldnt find circular needles small enough.   the smallest I have is the smallest i could find anywhere, i think 22".  I assume im missing out on something rather large, or I just need to get my hands on some real small circulars..  or..   double pointed needles but i don't know how that works....  help?

There are smaller circular needles, but not small enough to do wrist warmers.  You'll have to use DPNs or have a seam.  DPNs are a little tricky at first, but not so bad once you get the hang of it.  It's a good skill to have--lots of projects, like hats, start on circulars but end on DPNs.  Hard to explain here, but a good book will teach you.

yep, dpn's are the way to go. seriously, they're not bad. it's just like knitting with straight needles, except instead of turning the needle you go around and around. this page might help you visualize it:


you can do this with any number of dpn's. for these wristwarmers, i used a set of 5. i wanted to make the wristwarmers pretty warm, so i knit them tight (size 5 needles for the gorilla hands; size 7 for the sparkly, which had two strands of yarn held together).

good luck!

I LOVE those  Grin!! It's stuff like this that makes me want to learn to knit

This morning I looked down at my unmade bed and decided that it was art in another medium and I should not destroy it

Hey, can somebody translate the pattern into ctochet for me? I can't knit, and I don't think that alooks like a good thing for a beginner.
But I am determined to try, anyway.
So if no one converts it to crochet for me, I will have to make it up myself! I will find a way.

Youve inspired me. I am thinking of making some with matching leg warmers!

instead of DPN's you could do it using 2 circulars or even one circular & the magic loop.
i have never tried 2 circ but I managed the magic loop after re-reading the instructions and having a 2nd go at it.  I don't like dpns as i can never find a good way to hold them.

I can knit and purl squares LOL ~ That's my limit! 

So I didn't understand the pattern at all  Huh  It's such a shame, your wrist warmers are FAB!  I really like the yarn and everything ~ I'd LOVE some!  WTG!
