Barton Cottage Wrist Warmers

I've recently been rereading some Jane Austen novels - I especially like "Sense and Sensibility". That's what inspired me to knit a pair of long wrist warmers - they might be useful during a cold winter in a Devonshire cottage.
Of course, they are useful in modern times as well. Especially, if you work in a draughty office :)

Materials
  • about 170 meters of fingering weight yarn; I used exactly one skein of Lang Baby Alpaca
  • 3mm needles - I used dpns, but you can use circulars, too, if you prefer the magic loop method
  • a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round
  • a tapestry needle to weave in ends

Gauge and Measurements
A finished wrist warmer measures 19 cm in circumference at the top (near the wrists) and 24 cm at the bottom (near the elbow). Its lenght is about 1 cm. 
In stockinette stitch 5 sts/8 rows equaled 2 cm.
