Hello, I'm Rachel! I am a crafter, pattern writer, cat lover, nursing student, and frequent library visitor. I live in an old house in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my husband and three cats where I knit, crochet, sew, and generally have a good time. I also run a wonderful shop full of nature-inspired fiber art, knitting & crochet patterns, and other fun stuff! You can find me on Etsy at my shop www.fullflowermoon.etsy.com, or check out my blog at full-flower-moon.tumblr.com.View all patterns by designer (22) »
These cozy arm warmers are just the thing for cold weather. They can extend the life of your three-quarter sleeved tops or layer with long sleeves for extra warmth. The arm warmers have rolled edges, a little ruching at each wrist, and a cute beaded detail. The beautiful yarn I used for this pair is a blend of alpaca and bamboo fibers, so it's warm without being bulky - perfect for arm warmers!
The yarn is fingering/4ply weight.
These arm warmers are one size fits most.
For this project you will need one skein (50 grams) of MountainTop Vail yarn (by Classic Elite Yarns) a set of 4 double-pointed knitting needles in size US 2/2.75mm. You will also need a yarn needle, scissors, and a ruler or tape measure. You can also embellish the arm warmers with a pair of buttons or beads (I used a cute set of Japanese owl beads on mine!).
Gauge is 8 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch.
