Have fun creating this
beginner knitted arm warmer pattern. Just repeat the same 4
rows for as long as you want the arm warmer to be.
It’s not a lace pattern but sometimes it can look like it is. The
larger the needle the more there is a “lace” effect. You're basically making a rectangle and sewing the edges together. The entire pattern is below. When it comes to size I add 1/2 inch to the size of the wrist of the person wearing it.
If you're looking for a challenge you can try these Cabled Arm Warmers. They include Serpentine Cable Arm Warmer, Soft Cabled Arm Warmer, "Warm Me Up" Braid Cable, Waves Arm Warmer, Slow and Easy Cabled Arm Warmer and more.
It's made flat and then the sides are sewn together.
IF you want a thumb hole see the instructions in the section "Sewing your arm warmer together" #5.

* * = Repeat
instructions between them
You need an uneven number of stitches for this pattern
Row 1: P1, * K1, P1*
Row 2: K1 *WYIF, S1, K1*
Row 3: K1 * P1, K1*
Row 4: K2 *WYIF, S1 K1*
REPEAT ROWS 1-4 as needed
It’s important to
do a loose bind off
or it will squeeze your hand/arm. That's not to comfortable, trust
me. I've made that mistake a couple of times.
I always do a purl
bind off no matter what stitch the last row is comprised of. It's
so much more attractive then a knitted one. It's up to you.
you end your last row cut your yarn and leave a tail. You will tie a
knot to secure the sewing and then you can weave it in.
Sewing your arm warmer together
If you have your own method of sewing by all means do
that. If you need instructions then I can tell you how to sew it
the arm warmer with the right side facing down. Then
take the sides and fold them in ward. Pin the top of it as you're
Now thread your yarn needle.
Start sewing by threading your needle through the purl
bump closest to the edge then put your needle through the purl bump
closest to the edge on the opposite side. Pull the yarn through
leaving about 4 inches and tie a loose knot (so it doesn't squeeze
your wrist). Then tie another knot tightly to secure the first one.
Now, whatever side your yarn needle is on, **go up a
little and put your yarn needle through the purl bump closest to the
edge and go straight across to the other side and do the same.**
repeat the instructions between the asterisks. The diagram shows how
to do it.
Pull tight every couple of inches.
5. You can also
pin where the
thumb hole is
going to be, if you want one. To
do that lay it flat and slip your hand in it just like you would when
wearing it. Use 2 safety pins where you want the beginning and end to
be. When you get to the 1st safety pin weave the yarn into the sides
until you get to the top pin and continue sewing again.
you get to the very top do the last stitch and pull it tight, but not so tight that it hurts your arm, and tie a knot if you have a tail from when you finish your
warmer. Hope you try it sometime. Let me know if you have any questions.
This is an easy cable patterned purse. Definetly a beginner pattern. In the pattern instructions I included video links to some techniques if you choose to do them. It's made flat, then folded in half.
You only have to use a cable needle twice on this cable stitch pattern.
Size: 6 in x 9 inches
Yards: 30-40 yard of yarn needed.
This is a large ribbed cable with a moss border. You only need to use the cable needle twice. The only difficult thing about the cable is that it is a large cable. That makes it very tight when trying to do it. If youre having trouble getting you needle tip into those cable stitches push up all the stitches on the right needle. That gives you more room to maneuver. The cable pattern will be below the pattern instructions.
Finished Size: 6 x 9 inches
Rows Completed: 44
Yards: Need about 30-40 yards of yarn
C14F = Slip 7 stitches hold in the front, k7 then k7 from cable needle
C14 rib = Slip 6 stitches hold in front, K2 P2 K2 P2 then K2 P2 K2 from the
Moss stitch = For odd # rows = K1 P1 across the row. For even # rows = Knit the Purls and Purl the Knits
