I was looking for a pattern for arm warmers online for my daughter. Most of the patterns I found were hard to read, or slightly difficult. After giving up I decided to just do it.
I have made a cute set of grey arm warmers, with a thumb hole. Later today I will be adding a pink applique cat paw to them and maybe some pink ruffles.
This got me excited, because there are so many variations that can be made. I will take pictures as soon as they are done!
I also found this to be a great opportunity to try a new technique I have seen floating around the internet.
Have you tried this? I did for the first time the other day! I love it! It gives cleaner edges, and it just looks better.
For those who have not tried it, here is the video I used to learn how:
I used single crochet to practice, but it is the same concept if you wanted to use half double or even double crochet.
I may never use a starting chain again!!!!
