i want an armwarmer pattern...with only a hole for the thumb...

i dont really wanna round knit...since im not very experienced with knitting, i made a scarf out of fun fur so i had to knit that...and im gonna do another soon...

im a crocheter, i can cast on and do a basic knit, thats it so a very simple pattern would be great

Are you sure you don't want to knit in rounds? I am kind of in love with double pointed needles for stuff like mittens, gloves, leg warmers and-of course- arm warmers. Also, I have arm warmers on my "to crochet" list- I am planning on doing a popcorn stitch with a smallish hook- G, maybe. I'm just saying I really think it could be done with crochetting.

you can just crochet it in the round. Chain make a chain to the circumference you want, and then sl st it to the other end, and go round and round.

do you know how bulky crochetting is?

i would rather knit it simply for that reason....

its hard all i can find is wrist warmers...i want them to go from where my fingers start to my elbow
all of the patterns dont have increaseing/decreaseing that i've found and i dont see how that could work...wouldnt it be too big at the wrist or too small by the elbow?

If you do ribbing it will pull in at the wrist and expand to fit the elbow...

How bout this (since you only know how to cast on/off and knit):

cast on x stitches (maybe 40 in worsted weight yarn)
knit every row for however long you want the wris warmers to be- maybe 12-18 inches.  if you know how to purl knit one row purl one row...

cast off.  now you have a long rectangle.  sew the side seam, leaving a place unsewn for the thumb.
