Basic Armwarmers

November 5, 2008 at 4:28 pm (free patterns) (, , , )

Patons classic merino wool – less than a skein will do it
fingering weight mohair – I used vintage mohair
scrap novelty yarn – I used Lion Brand Fun Fur

Size regular (large)

Using size 5 DPN (or do 2 at once ala 2s2c, or magic loop), cast on 24 (28) stitches, with one strand of novelty yarn & one strand of the wool.

Knit 9 (10) rounds. Cut novelty yarn, and turn cuff inside out – I think the fun fur looks better on the wrong side, but keep on the right side if you prefer

Join mohair, and knit plain for 4 inches. Bind off using E. Zimmermann’s sewn bind off, or method of choice.

 

Please consider making a pair for charity, as this pattern was originally intended.
