Pattern Description:

East End Armwarmers is an easy and fun project, perfect for knitters of all skill levels. These slouchy mitts are seamless and the length reaches just over the elbow, but is meant to be scrunched down for a warm and cozy fit. The arm cuff features a simple cable & rib pattern that gives the armwarmers just enough visual interest without being too busy. It features a simple thumbhole so that all of your fingers (and thumb!) are free to text, type or knit.
It was designed using Shibui's Baby Alpaca DK yarn and it uses just 1 skein! Any DK-weight yarn will work, especially if it contains alpaca, cashmere or silk (for a super soft drape).
