Pattern Description:

This is a pdf knitting pattern for a gorgeous pair of armwarmers in a lace and cable pattern, with fisherman's rib on the palm. These are very cosy, knitted in a supersoft cashmere blend yarn. Having said that, any aran/worsted weight yarn would do - substitute your favourite! They would make an ideal gift, or a special treat for yourself.

Design uses 'fake cable' techniques, i.e. left twists and right twists. They are both much easier to knit than using a cable needle and practically indistinguishable. It also uses lace stitches k2tog, ssk and yo. Full instructions are included in pdf. This pattern would be suitable for any knitter from an adventurous beginner upwards!
