Knitting Patterns: Ribbed Stripey Arm Warmers

Savvy Needle Knitting Patterns

Ribbed Stripey Arm Warmers

Sock Yarn: I used Berroco Sox – 50 g will give you 2 arm warmers

Gauge: 7 Stitches x 10 rows = 1 inch on Sz 3 dpns

Instructions (note, these fit a small to average woman's wrists):
  • Cast on 56 stitches and join, being careful not to twist stitches
  • Knit in 1x1 ribbing for 4 rounds
  • Round 5 - 10: Knit all stitches
  • Round 11:  At beginning of round, k2tog, knit all stitches to stitch 30, k2tog, knit all stitches to end of round
  • Round 12 - 20:  Knit all stitches
  • Repeat Rounds 11 - 20 until 50 stitches remain on needles
  • Round 21: Rep Round 11 (48 stitches remain on needles)
  • Round 22 - 41: Work k2 p1 ribbing
  • Round 42: Knit all stitches
  • Round 43: Kfb of 1st stitch, Knit 24 stitches, kfb of next stitch, knit all stitches to end of round
  • Knit 4 rounds even
  • Repeat Rounds 43 & 4 even rounds until 56 stitches are on needle
  • Knit 3 rounds even after last increase round
  • Next round: Knit 23 stitches, put next 12 stitches on waste yarn, knit remaining 23 stitches
  • On next round, knit 23 stitches, and join to remaining 23 stitches, creating a tube with those 46 stitches and leaving the 12 thumb stitches unworked
  • Knit 10 rounds even
  • Knit 4 rounds of 1x1 rib
  • Bind off loosely (I bind off using 2 needles held as 1, since I tend to bind off very tightly.)
  • Pick up 12 thumb stitches on 2 dpns  (if you pick up more than 12 thumb stitches to fill in any gaps, be sure to decrease to an even number, so rib stitch will work out correctly.)
  • Knit 2 rounds even
  • Knit 4 rounds of 1x1 rib
  • Bind off loosely and work in all loose ends
Work opposite arm warmer the same.

How can I get this pattern to print with a white background?

Unfortunately, while a pretty color, the page color keeps anyone from printing out the pattern. Copying and pasting also transfers the brown with it. How disappointing! Hopefully the designer/author will provide a clean copy of the pattern. :)
