Hey, this is my first "written so that others will actually be able to reproduce" pattern.  It's for opera length arm warmers with bones made in a tapestry crochet stitch.







MODIFIED 1/26

Hey, Everyone.  I'm including the pattern in this post so that you can all make a pair of Bone Warmers.  Please do not sell the pattern or finished project.  Feel free to post pictures in this thread if you end up making your own pair.  Also, let me know if anything seems off with the instructions.

Project: Bone Warmers
There is something about a closet that makes a skeleton terribly restless.
 Wilson Mizner (Playwright, 1876-1933)

Difficulty
Average

Finished Measurements
If you have more luscious arms, you can always add rows of main color yarn to the beginning and end of pattern.  The only thing that is fixed is the number of tapestry rows that form the skeleton bones design.

Materials
Caron Simply Soft [100% Acrylic; 330 yd/302 m per 6 oz/170 g skein] Raspberry, 1 skein
Red Heart [100% Acrylic, 244 yd/223 m per 7 oz/198 g skein] White, 1 skein
US K 6.5 mm crochet hook

Design Notes
For this pattern you are making two arm warmers using the tapestry crochet stitch.  You will be using the same pattern for both arms.  This means for one arm warmer you will need to keep all of your loose ends on the right side of the material and you will be wearing that arm warmer wrong side out.  I like to clip the alternating color strand (leaving a 3 inch tail) if I know I'm going to be crocheting with only the main color yarn for 10 + stitches.

Assemble Armwarmers:
Weave in loose ends.
Fold work lengthwise so that right sides are facing together.
Take a length of MC yarn and whipstitch the two sides together to form a tube.
Turn right side out (or wrong side out for the second arm warmer).

Ohmigosh, these are so awesome!  I bought a pair of stockings with leg bones on them--I might have to try making these to match.
