I have two balls of Knit Pick Wools of Andes in Steam I want to use for these but I need a pattern that you don't have to use on dnps. I only own one pair and they us 10 1/2. I don't have the money to buy anymore. Thanks!

Rory, I've only seen these on dpn's; sorry. But, I myself had the same problem (lack of money for dpn's), so I just made my own out of dowel rods from the hardware store. The dowels I got were like 50, and you get 4-5 out of them depending on how long you wanted them. Maybe that's a viable option for you? Amy's also got a video for making your own knitting needles. I cut my dowels the size I wanted them, then stuck each end in a pencil sharpener, then filed them down. If I worked a bit more on them, they'd probably work better, but for practically free, I'm not going to complain! :wink:

Do you own circular needles?? If so, you can knit in the round using either magic loop knitting (requires one LONG circular) or small diameter circular knitting on 2 circular needles (requires 2 circular needles of whatever length, but they have to be the same needle size). You can find videos for both methods here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/).

Did you check here?

I think you could easily do something on two needles, basically two rectangles in a stitch pattern of your choice, completely seam up one side, then seam up most of the way, leave a small hole for your thumb (sorta like a buttonhole), and finish off the seam. OR make one almost squarish rectangle and fold it over and just seam up the thumb side like above, one less seam to sew. ;)

I've seen a pattern like this, but I don't remember where.

but you could make it ribbed so that it has give where it needs to, and still pulls close where your wrists are thinner.

Maybe this pattern (http://schrodinger212.blogspot.com/2005/12/wrist-warmers.html) would work?
