So, after much frogging, I finished my first  cable project-
cabled armwarmers Grin
I just went for it and thought of a pattern I liked for ones, bought 2 skeins of 100% Merino, and look:

armwarmers!!!!!

close up of the cables:

it is the simplest pattern (bacause I made it myself) so if want it, I'll be glad to share!

thank you  Grin
I'm wondering what to do with most of the second ball, I used it only on the last 10 rows of the second armwarmer... any ideas? would it be enough for a matching neckwarmer?

for sure it would be enough for a neckwarmer, if it made nearly two long gloves!  You could probably manage a skinny scarf, instead, if you wanted.  Or a Panta?

gladly, my dear:

I used the magic loop method, so I used 4mm circs.

CO 39sts., join in the round, careful not to twist

round 1-6: *k1 p2 k3 p1 k3 p2 k1* three times
round 7,11,16,22,29,37,44,50, 55,59: *k1 p2 (move 3 sts to cable needle. k3, p1, k3 sts. from cable needle)p2 k1* 3 times
r. 8-10, 12-15, 17-21,23-28, 30-36, 38-43,45-49,51-54,56-58: work even (like rounds 1-6)
r. 60: work as round 1
r.61-67:work straight (NOT in the round) as established
r.68: join work again
r.69-72: work even
use a picot bind off
(BO2, *slip last st. to left needle, CO 2, BO4*. pass end of yarn through last st. and pull tight.)
weave in ends
repeat for second armwarmer (unless you're Michale Jackson)

errrrr..... our yarns on't have that info written on them, but the label says: 3.25-4mm needles
and also it says: 31rows X 22 sts=10cm X10cm.
(but it doesn't say on which needle size. great.)
