I sat on this pattern a long time because I couldn't remember whether or not I mailed it off to a magazine... turns out I didn't. Oops.
(excuse the fact that one is all twisted... I think I wanted to show off the edge, but it just looks lazy in retrospect.)
They're pretty easy, with a neato construction and a fit-as-you-go approach that means you can make them any size or length with very little fuss and pretty much zero math. They look great in self striping yarns, but a solid or varigated would also be interesting in a more subtle sort of way...and of course you can add whatever striping or patterning you want. These are done in Rowan Tapestry (two balls, though you might not end up using the second if you make them small), but I made a pretty cool smaller pair out of some rainbow SWTC Karaoke (which, sadly, I don't have any good pictures of. There is a very bad picture here.)
Available as always in the etsy shop or via Ravelry:
