I finished up Sydney's wrist warmers/fingerless gloves this morning. I was in a hurry to get the second one complete so she can wear them for Halloween because it was a nippy minus 10 C this morning and I think tonight is going to be just as cold!
The pattern was one of those figure it out in my head as I go along ones :) I used one strand of WW yarn so they are not thick at all.
I used the small gauge Wonderloom from Decor Accents. 26 pegs. These fit my 8 year old daughter and I'm working on an adult version and will post when I'm done.
Row 1-10: K1, P1 (The knit 1 is the ewrap stitch)
Row 11-31: knit stitch (not ewrap) Video of stitch located here: Loom Knit
Row 32: Knit pegs 1-24, place the two loops from pegs 25 and 26 on a stitch marker and ewrap the two empty pegs and start knitting at peg 1. This will be the thumb hole. Picture shown (click for larger view):
Row 33-38: Knit
Row 39-43: K1, P1 (ewrapped)
Remove using crochet method with one chain stitch in between. Weave in the two loops on the stitch marker making sure they do not come undone, weave in all ends. Whip up a second one and you're done!
