Arm warmers are awesome! Whether knit or crochet,
they’re a great transition item for fall and spring, and a fantastic
layering piece all winter long. And they’re perfect for cold offices and
classrooms. Earlier this year I designed both knit and crochet
striped arm warmers for kids, but what about the grownups? A reader
request prompted me into action, and a complete reworking of the pattern
– this time for all the chilly adults!
- US-I, 5.5mm hook
- Worsted weight yarn, approximately 185 yards each of two colors (Caron Simply Soft in Black and Grey Heather shown)
This pattern is offered in two sizes. The Small version is for
people with forearms smaller than 12 inches around at the widest point,
an inch or so before the elbow. The Large version is for people with
forearms 12 inches or larger. If in doubt, I’d recommend going with the
larger version for comfort.
13 dc = 4″ wide (when working stripes); 12 sc = 3″ (length of cuff)
