It's tested! Only 1 minor clarification needed! And, mine came out to exactly 12" (but I did use a bigger hook).

I'll post it tomorrow before I head out for the day, I hope. If I run out of time, I'll post it when I get back.

Woot woot! You're the best.

I just realized (about 2 minutes ago) that March is on Monday! So, slight revision to today's plans: 1) Test out the March block 2) Then I can clean the craft room Wink

test it test it Cheesy

So, I'm gonna post some of the other ones I've made. I just finished this pair and decided to put some fun yarn as the bottom.

those came out great! I want a pair!  Cheesy

I would love a tut, if you are willing. Is that yarn you used 4-ply? (ie could i use super saver?)

it is 4-ply yes Smiley

I've been wanting arm warmers for a long time. I've also been on the look out for a pattern that would grab me and shout: make me now! Sadly, I was having a hard time of it, so what do we crafty kids do when we can't find a pattern we like? We wing it! And I'm glad I did. This lovely pair whipped up really quick, and was nice and cheap.

The craft store behind my work was selling some of this cheap yarn called "Yarn Gang". It's a 60% cotton 40% acrylic, and it's soft, and cute, and was just enough to make this pair. And even better, it was 99 cents!

I wrote down what I did (kind of) so if anyone is interested I can put my tut up. Smiley I'll promise to make another pair to test it out.

On to the photos!


This pattern uses a Foundation Single Crochet (FSC) to start off.
You can find the tutorial for that here: http://www.futuregirl.com/craft_blog/2009/3/tutorial-foundation-single-crochet.aspx
If that isn't going to work for you, just chain where ever it asks for a FSC.

Worsted Weight Yarn (About 2 oz, depending on how long you make them)
5.5 I Crochet Hook

Stitches Used:
FSC - foundation single crochet
SC - single crochet
SS - slip stitch
Dec - Single crochet together
Inc - 2 single crochet in stitch

(Note:: I made this pretty tight. So, if your hands are bigger, just adjust it to fit)

If you have any questions or problems, or find a typo please let me know. :3

Rnd 1: 30 FSC, join w/ ss in 1st ch.
Rnd 2-5: Ch 1, turn clockwise (go the opposite direction) sc 30, ss in first sc.
Rnd 6: Ch 1, turn, sc in next 24 ch.
Rnd 7-12: Ch 1, turn, sc in next 24. (24)
Rnd 13: Ch 1, turn, sc 24, 3 FSC, ss in first sc.
Rnd 14-15: Ch 1, turn, sc in every st, ss in first sc. (27)
Rnd 16: Ch 1, turn, sc, dec [5 sc, dec]x3, 3 sc, ss in first sc.
Rnd 17-18: Ch 1, turn, sc in every st. (23)
Rnd 19: Ch 1, turn, sc, inc [5 sc, inc]x3, 3 sc, ss in first sc.
Rnd 20: ch 1, turn, sc in every st. ss in first sc. (27)
Repeat Rnd 20 until it is the length you want, just keep track of how many you make so that your other arm warmer matches Smiley

The cream top is just a sc in every st.
For the bottom I did one row of DC, and then two rows of FPDC, BPDC, all the way around. Just plain sc also works. Just do whatever feels right.

C&C always welcome. this is my first pattern, so if it's hard to understand please let me know, I'm always willing to learn.

If you make these please post pictures, I'd love to see it. Smiley
