Arm Warmers

Lion Brand® LB Collection® Cashmere


22 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


w&t (wrap and turn) Bring yarn between needles to front, slip next st as if to purl, bring yarn back between needles to back (one st wrapped). Slip st back to left needle and turn work. On following row, when working wrapped st, pick up wrap and place on left needle, work wrap together with wrapped st.


Short rows are worked across back of hand to flare the top of each Arm Warmer slightly.

Arm Warmers Reviewed by Martha Steele on 2011-09-02 ****
In response to Judy...I couldn't help but notice that in your pics you sewed the sides of your knitting together, and the pattern (and their picture) shows them sewing the cast on and bound off edge together. That might be your fit problem, if I'm understanding it correctly. I haven't made this pattern yet, but I intend to. I'll edit my review then. Looks nice, though. Update: I made this and it turned out nicely! Better way to wrap: Slip the stitch you want to wrap to the right hand needle (slip it purlwise). Bring yarn to front. Slip stitch back to left hand needle. Turn work. Yarn is already in place to start knitting. DO NOT pick up the wrap when you later pass over it. This method works great for any garter stitch short rows! Try it and see. You can see the short rows in my photo.
