Are you afraid of round or double pointed needles? Afraid of tricky patterns and complicated stitches? Are you too lazy for that sort of thing? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and you are a breathing bi-ped with minimal knowledge of knitting, you can make these arm warmers!
Underneath, I am just wearing those super cheap stretchy gloves. Please pay special attention to the messy dormroom!
I have never read or written a pattern so, uh, this might be embarrassing. Let me know which parts don't make sense, I'll try to clarify!
I used #5 needles and cheap red heart yarn (college girl special).
I made them flat, but you could just as easily work on DPN's.
CO 30 sts
Row 1-3: Stockinette stitch
Row 4-30: 3/3 ribbing (you can make this part- the arm part- as long as your li'l
Row 31: decrease every 3rd st
Row 32: Um. . . work according to stitches in row 31. (No decreasing, just knit
on top of knitted sts and purl on top of purled sts)
Row 33: decrease 1 more st from the "stripes" you decreased from in row 31.
Row 34: This row=20 sts. . .right? Right! Now work Row 34 in Garter Stitch.
Row 35-40: Work in garter stitch.
Row41: Still garter stitch, increasing 1 st every 4 sts
Row 42: Again, work in garter stitch, increasing 1 st every 4 sts
Row 43-55: Garter stitch.
Row 56: Garter for 24 sts, then BO sts 25-29. Do 30th st in garter.
Row 57: After 1st st (still in garter), CO 5 sts, continue rest of row in garter.
Row 58-63: (or as long as you'd like this part) in garter. When your satisfied bind off!
If you were able to follow my nonsense, you are done! If not, just let me know!
