It’s time for the Monthly Theme Post brought to you by VictorianKitty. Thank you for this great theme! It made me get real busy yesterday.
I have several pairs of gloves and armwarmers but since I got home real late today I didn’t take pictures of all of them. Instead, here’s a simple tutorial on crocheting your own superfast and supereasy armwarmers:
Using a size 6 / J crochet hook and bulky yarn (e.g. “Royal Tweed” by Lana Grossa), chain 30 (+ 2 for turning chain).
1st – 15th row: 30 x DC (= double crochet) each row.
Crochet one row more or less, depending on width needed.
Fold the resulting rectangle in half. Decide where you want the hole for your thumb to be. Create a tube by sewing/crocheting ends together. Leave hole for thumb open. Voilá! Done.🙂
Weave in ribbon & tie bow if wanted. I tried this with a purple piece of ribbon and it looked very pretty but unfortunately it started fraying at the ends real bad so I removed it.
These armwarmers are a very quick and easy project and suitable for beginners.
There’re probably patterns/tutorials for armwarmers like these out there but I didn’t have one (because of cold hands, I crocheted these quite spontaneously in front of the TV yesterday night) so here’s what I did only. Please share if you find a similar pattern so I can add a link to proper instructions.
I love these because they keep my hands warm while typing.😉
Did you all have a great Halloween yesterday?
