Wow, I haven't posted on here in ages
-------------

Well, here are my own armwarmers. My own meaning it's my own pattern!

I used Bernat Alpaca Natural Blends: Indigo
I started this back in February but I never really got around to finish them until recently.


I used size...6 needles?












I guess here's a pattern for people who want to do something similar.

Materials:
1 Skein of Bernat Alpaca Natural Blends[or anything you like actually]
1 set of DPNs
Waste yarn
Crochet hook
PATTERN:
CO 40 sts onto 3 DPNs
Rows 1-4: [k2, p2] Repeat for the whole row.
Row 5: k round.
[from here on I kept knitting the rounds until I got the length I wanted. So basically knit until you think it's long enough. Mine went to the middle of my forearms.]
Here's where you set up for your thumb gusset. So make sure you're ready for the thumb hole.
Before you start knitting again, you're going to be knitting with your waste yarn.
So take the waste yarn and purl 7 stitches, now slip the 7 purled stitches back onto your left DPN.
Now you'll be knitting with your MC yarn again. But now you're still gonna purl those 7 stitches of waste yarn.
K the round.
Next 4 rows: K
Last 4 rows: [k2, p2] the whole round.
BO

Thumb Gusset:
Carefully take out the waste yarn and put the loose stitches on your DPNs.
Rows 1&2: K
Rows 3&4: [k2, p2] the round.
BO

Use your crochet hook to weave in the ends.

There you go!

I apoligize if that's a messy pattern. I just typed it up right now. So if you have any questions, leave a comment!!!
