My friend Erin's birthday was Sunday and for her present I made her these cabled armwarmers. I've never made armwarmers before but these are basically an easy/tweaked version of fetching from knitty.org (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html):

I think I'm going to make a pair for myself in black when I get the chance. I can post a pattern if anyone wants one.

Very nice, I like that color. It looks like instead of the solid block of knits and purls you continued the cables instead. It turned out quite well.

WOW, they look great and I would also love to see the pattern.

Thanks, all, for the feedback! The pattern is pretty simple. I used Bernat Satin in Raisin (it is so soft! and cheap, one ball cost $2.49 at Joann's and I think I have enough leftover for a second pair, I made a phone cosy with it) and three size 6 needles. At least one needs to be double pointed, for cabling, but if you want to subsistute a stitch holder that can be fine, too. A stitch counter comes in super handy, too.

Left Arm

CO 41 stitches (this fits most hands, but if you need bigger/smaller then I would CO 36 or 46 for the sake of the pattern)
Row 1: do a 4x1 rib- P1,*K4, P1, rep from* until end of row
Row 2: K1,*P4, K1, rep from * to end of row
Rows 3-10 rep back and forth
Row 11: P1, *S2st to CN, Hold to back, K2, K2 from CN, P1 rep * to end of the row
Rep Rows 1-9
Then on rows 21, 31, 41 repeat cabling, and when you get to row 51 BO in pattern.
Sew the sides shut leaving a thumb hole (usually I would do one cable down and have the hole there till the next cable, so about 1/5 of the finished length.

Right arm is the same, but when you cable, hold the stitches to the front instead of the back.

I hope this works out for you, and if anyone does it I'd like to see!
