My friend Erin's birthday was Sunday and for her present I made her these cabled armwarmers. I've never made armwarmers before but these are basically an easy/tweaked version of fetching from knitty.org (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html):







I think I'm going to make a pair for myself in black when I get the chance. I can post a pattern if anyone wants one.

Very nice, I like that color. It looks like instead of the solid block of knits and purls you continued the cables instead. It turned out quite well.

Thanks, all, for the feedback! The pattern is pretty simple. I used Bernat Satin in Raisin (it is so soft! and cheap, one ball cost $2.49 at Joann's and I think I have enough leftover for a second pair, I made a phone cosy with it) and three size 6 needles. At least one needs to be double pointed, for cabling, but if you want to subsistute a stitch holder that can be fine, too. A stitch counter comes in super handy, too.

Left Arm

CO 41 stitches (this fits most hands, but if you need bigger/smaller then I would CO 36 or 46 for the sake of the pattern)
Row 1: do a 4x1 rib- P1,*K4, P1, rep from* until end of row
Row 2: K1,*P4, K1, rep from * to end of row
Rows 3-10 rep back and forth
Row 11: P1, *S2st to CN, Hold to back, K2, K2 from CN, P1 rep * to end of the row
Rep Rows 1-9
Then on rows 21, 31, 41 repeat cabling, and when you get to row 51 BO in pattern.
Sew the sides shut leaving a thumb hole (usually I would do one cable down and have the hole there till the next cable, so about 1/5 of the finished length.

Right arm is the same, but when you cable, hold the stitches to the front instead of the back.

I hope this works out for you, and if anyone does it I'd like to see!
