IMPROVED "Warm Me Up" Arm Warmer


MADE FLAT, NOT CIRCULAR
This is the second version of this arm warmer. I needed to make the underside "stronger" so it stayed in place. I used a moss stitch originally but it didn't work to well. I went with the new standard. which is a slip stitch pattern. It makes it  very durable and will never stretch out.  There's an example of what the slip stitch border looks like.  Looks like columns of v's.



This cable is called the 3-strand cable but it can also be known as a Braid cable.

Some details:
Cast On = 29
Finished Size = 6 x 9 inches
Needle Size = 10.5 US
Yards of Yarn = 60-75 yards
Rows = Complete rows 1-12 then [5-12 as needed]

It's an easy pattern for a beginner. There's the standard type of cable, videos below. Even if it's your first you'll be ok. I was a beginner when I made all of mine.

C6F= Slip 3 to the cable needle and hold in front, Knit 3 then knit the 3 stitches on the cable needle.

C6B= Slip 3 to the cable needle and hold in back, Knit 3 then knit the 3 stitches on the cable needle.
