simple arm/wrist warmers for noobs

This is not going to be abbreviated but its a really simple patterns for super noobies to knitting. I wrote up the pattern for my facebook group so i just copied and pasted them here.

Keep in mind that this pattern is something I made that fits me , without having any prior instruction how to follow patterns except for making a harry potter scarf

So what ya need:

-straight 5 US needles
-depending on how long you want your gloves, a large skein (i usually go huge) of worsted weight yarn, acrylic is fine
-Large eyed needle
-Crochet hook(in case you loose a stitch)

Directions: for a short pair:
Cast on 34 stitches
Rib Knit 5 rows
Stockette stitch 6 rows
Increase 1 stitch every 15 stitches every 8th row for 16 rows
do another 25 rows stockette stitch
do rib stitch for last 5 rows
Cast off

Use your needle to sew the two seams together, but leave a gap for your thumb at the narrow end of your knitted piece.

if you want to do a really bunchy version of this that will go past your elbows:

Cast on
Rib stitch for 5 rows
stockette stitch for 30 rows
increase 1 stitch every 6th row for the next 36 rows
continue stockette stitch for another 84 rows
rib knit for 5 rows
cast off

follow sewing instructions

for those who know how to change colors in bars, by all means feel free to add in a little color change like in the pic i have provided
