Does anyone have a copy of the Kenko arm warmer patterns that were linked to in this thread previously. It's URL was http://www.dears.net/knits/index.php?p=32&more=1#more32 but the knitting part of the site appears to be down and I've lost my print out...

sorry, can't help ya there, but if you want the copy-cat pattern I made up, I can write it out for you!

That would be great!  I tried to wing it and the one I've knitted cuts of the circulation to my hand - it's been turned into a beer bottle cosie now...

Haha okay..

Mine is snug, but just snug enough to not fall off.

gauge = 12 rows and 10 st = 4 x 4 inches st stitch

yarn: any 2 colors worsted weight that will match the gauge. (I used caron simply soft; 100% acrylic)

needles: a set of 4 #5 US dpns

when changing colors, don't cut the yarn, just carry the color you need loosely up the inside of your work.

CO 35 st with Color A, divide between three dpns. Join in rnd, being careful not to twist sts. Work in k1, p1 ribbing for 6 rnds (or just knit 6 rnds, like I did. the ribbing might help it stay on better though.) *Switch to Color B, and work 6 rnds. Switch to A and work 6 rnds. Repeat from * untill you have 11 stripes. Knit 6 more rnds of color A, and then work 6 rnds of B in k1, p1 ribbing (or again, just knit 6 rnds). BO loosely.

Sorry if that's a bit wordy, I'm trying to practice my pattern writing skills.

Basicaly, just knit 13 stripes of 6 rounds a piece. You can do the ends with knit 1, purl 1 ribbing if you want a little extra staying power.

Will sewing two long rectangles in a k stitch work okie?

sewing long rectangles will work, but you might want to have ribbed edges at the ends of the tubes, so that it will stay on your arm better

I'll jump in here, but I need some help, preferably FAST [xmas present!] I have 1 balls of Moda-Dea Prima yarn in raspberry and I need a quick pattern for straight needles. How do I come up with one? I want em just plain, no thumb holes. Anyone want to help a hopeless newbie?  Roll Eyes

snow white - First, choose your yarn and needles. Then find your gauge. To do this just cast on about 15 stitches, and knit in stockinette for about 15 to 20 rows. Get a measuring tape or something and count exactly how many stitches you have per inch. Then times that number by however wide the widest part of your lower arm is, plus 1/2 an inch for seaming. Then just cast on that many stitches and knit in stockinette stitch untill your rectangle is as long as you want it. Sew up the sides using mattress stitch (refer to your handy S 'n B or google it) and wear! Ta da!

I hope that made sense. I tried.

just remember the stockinette curls, so you'll need to add garter, seed, ribbing, whatever stitch to the ends that are not being sewn together in order to prevent curling. unless you like that look. let us know how they turn out!

where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

Yarn: Red Heart in an unknown color
Needles: US 5
Time needed: I worked on an off over a week
