These are colorful wrist warmers. Color by Number patterns use no complex techniques like stranded knitting or intarsia, just plain striping, easy picked up stitches, and a couple yarn-carrying tricks to make for as little finishing as possible, while keeping a neat back side.  This project requires homework before class starts. We will be knitting these in Simplicity by HiKoo.
