My friend Davey got me a pair of grey armwarmers for my birthday this year, and lo-and-behold, my brother decided he wanted a pair too, only in earth tones.  So I made up my own pattern!

I'd love any feedback you could give Smiley



Equipment
75g aran yarn
6mm straight needles or size needed to get required tension
Darning needle

Tension: 20 sts x 10 rows = 9cm x 5cm

Pattern
CO 40sts
K2 P2 across for 15 rows
Next row: P2tog P2tog *K2 P2* rep from * to * until 4 sts remain, K2tog K2tog
P2 K2 across for 10 rows
Next row: K2tog K2tog *P2 K2* rep from * to * until 4 sts remain, P2tog P2tog
K2 P2 across for 10 rows
Next row: P2tog P2tog *K2 P2* rep from * to * until 4 sts remain, K2tog K2tog
P2 K2 across for 10 rows

Shape thumbhole
*P2 K2* rep from * to * for 14 sts, place remaining 14 sts on holder
First row: K2 P2 to end
Second row: P2 K2 to end
Repeat these two rows once more, place sts on holder and break yarn
Transfer sts from first holder onto needle, K2 P2 to end
First row: P2 K2 to end
Second row: K2 P2 to end
Repeat these two rows one more
P2 K2 across all sts, including those on the holder.
P2 K2 for 9 more rows
BO all sts.

To finish:
Edge thumbhole using buttonhole stitch
With right sides together, sew along long sides of glove
Weave in all ends

Notes:
It is best to use a fairly stretchy method of casting-on and off
A neater edge to the piece is formed if you sl the first st of every row p-wise instead of knitting/purling it, but do not do this for the thumb-hole.
