I just finished writing up a pattern for staghorn cable wrist warmers. The pattern starts at the wrist, so it's easy to make them longer or shorter depending on the amount of yarn you have. Mine each used up a ball of yarn about the size of an apricot. These are a super quick knit and a great use for small amounts of yarn left over from other projects.
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, can substitute any worsted weight wool
Needles: US6 and US7 dpns
Gauge: 5 sts and 5.5 rnds per inch
