ZIG ZAG WARMERS
A little to the left, a little to the right.
1 skein (about 100 yards) worsted weight yarn. This lovely yarn was dyed by a mama on diaperswappers.com.
Size 5 DPNs or circular needles (I found this pattern worked well using two circular needles).
Cast on 37 stitches, join to knit in the round, taking care to not twist stitches.
Work the zig zag pattern for 5 inches, or whatever length works for you. (I can totally see this pattern in an elbow length glove!)
