Instructables
Picture of SUPER EASY WRIST WARMERS
Knits & purls create the Diamond Design on the back of the hands of these wrist warmers/fingerless mitts. You choose the arm length that suits you.

The 14 stitches of the Diamond Design is provided by line-by-line written instructions. The thumb hole is simply shaped as you knit the palm – no picking up stitches later - super easy! Of course, these can be made even easier by omitting the Diamond Design and simply use a multi-colored fun yarn.
