These are really cozy and warm, and I love the Valley Yarns Northampton Sport used. The texture is really fun, and pulls in nicely to hug my cold wrists.
I've included written instructions as well as a chart for the pattern. The skills involved are really quite basic, just knit and purl and some increases and decreases. You do have to keep track of where you are in pattern or on the chart, but stitch markers can help with that.
Small takes 1 skein of Northampton Sport, larger two sizes take 2.

I have always been crafting or creating since I was little, but had never really latched onto any particular thing for long. I decided to teach myself how to knit in January 2006. After many years of knowing how to crochet and neglecting the craft, knitting has become my obsession. Now I love crochet more than ever, and I've dipped my toe into the weaving waters too!
