Arm Warmer Tutorial - Red Velvet Art Blog

(I'm going to send them to Rachel :D) This is what you'll need: -bulky yarn (I used a super soft 1 ply yarn, not sure of the brand) -size 15 needles -yarn/tapestry needle -buttons/lace/trim or other embellishments of your choice I started by casting on 20 stitches. Once you have around 40 rows or 10 inches, cast off.

Thread your yarn needle with the tail and sew the ends together to make a sleeve. Try on the arm warmer, and mark how big the thumb hole should be, and make one small stitch with an extra piece of yarn, at the top, to make the thumb hole. Next, embellish them however you like! Your arms will thank you when they're toasty warm under your jacket. :) Free Cup Cosy Knitting Pattern.
