A friend

SIZE
One size fits most

MATERIALS
Yarn:
1.9 oz, 76 yds worsted weight yarn (allow 2 oz / 80 yds)

NOTES
The original pattern called for two skeins of yarn, 126 yds each, in order to create stripes. So fun to make!

From Kim Werker: “These simply shaped, striped wristlets are worked mostly in single crochet through the back loop for a close-fitting ribbing with … double crochet at one end to provide the flair needed for them to fit comfortable over the lower hand to the thumb.”
