Sea Blue Bamboo Arm Warmer

Sea Blue Bamboo Arm Warmer
I used Bamboo Yarn, by Hobby Lobby, to create this very soft and comfortable arm warmer. It can't get any easier than this. It's definetly a beginner knit pattern. I used moss stitch at the beginning and the end and stockinette stitch in between. I used a 10.5 to make this. It measures 6 1/2 by 9 1/2. I used 60 yards to create them. The skein comes with 148 yards. The available colors can be found at this link. It sells for $4.99. Just bring the 40% off coupon with ya.
Thanks for visiting

The Waves Arm Warmer

This is an arm warmer that used increases and decreases to shape the design. It's okay if you're a beginner because I was when I made this. This was the first time I had ever tried a pattern that relies on inc. and decreased. It makes a beautiful pattern.

I used a slip stitch type pattern for the underside because it's very stretchy, just like ribbing but much easier to deal with when sewing.

Skill Level: Beginner
CO: 25
Finished Size: 6 in wide x 8.5 in high
Yarn: I used Bernat Worsted in Blue
Yard of yarn needed: 60 for the pair of them
Needle Size: I used 10.5
