IMPROVED "Warm Me Up" Arm Warmer


MADE FLAT, NOT CIRCULAR
Purchase this Knitted Arm Warmer Pattern

You can purchase this braid style knitted Arm Warmer pattern. My first version had moss stitch making up the underside but the arm warmer can't moving around on me. It wasn't snug either. This one is because I used a slip stitch that you can see in the picture right below. Just look at the edges. It's durable, won't stretch, won't move and nice and snug






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.

VIDEOS on how to do the Cable in case you need them see the links below....
