Super Simple Arm Warmers


There is nothing amazing or necessarily original here, but I needed something to keep me a little more on the warm side while I practice piano at night in my "cool" basement.

I specifically wanted something without the thumb hole since that little bit of bulk inhibits the piano playing, so I got to thinking about how nicely a leg warmer would work shortened up and thinned out . . . and after a few attempts to check sizing this is what I turned out.

Super Simple Arm Warmers

gauge: 6 st. and 7 rows to get an inch in stockinette

I used 4 size 6 DPN's and worsted weight yarn.

co 44, divide onto needles- 16, 12, 16 and join to work in the round.

K2P2 for 8 rows

K 10 rows

next row: K 15, K2tog, K10, K2tog, K 15 (42 stitches)
