Knitted Wrist Warmer Pattern

Hello everybody! 
I haven't posted in awhile. Well I am back! Hope everyone's new year is going well so far. Well, I crochet quite lot but I also knit. I am very much a beginner. I was looking at all these lovely wrist warmer patterns, but they used double pointed needles. I can't knit with double pointed needles so I decided to make my own pattern with two needles.

This pattern makes a rectangle type shape that you sew together at the end. 

-Size 6 Needles
-Bulky (Size 5) yarn
-Yarn Needle

Pattern: (make 2, right and left are made the same)
Start by making the cuff:

Cast on 32

Rows 1-15) *Knit 2, Purl 2* across


Row 16) Knit across

Row 17) Purl across

Rows 18-33) repeat rows 16 & 17, a total of 9 repeats

Top Cuff:

Rows 34-39) *Knit 2, Purl 2* across

Bind Off, leave a long end (at least 30 inches) to sew up edges. 

To sew: Fold rectangle in half, whip stitch 1 inch down the side, skip 2 1/4 inches by weaving yarn down one edge of the rectangle, finish sewing (about 4 inches) down the cuff. Make a knot and weave about an inch of yarn through the rectangle. Cut the yarn. Weave in any remainding ends. 

Ta dah! You have made knitted wrist warmers.
