Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting on double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

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.


8 stitches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch
