Custom-knit arm warmers for a daughter who rocks a fedora.
This yarn is super soft. Rather intoxicating to work with.
Pattern for Women’s Small
(Each increase of 6 sts will increase the circumference by an inch. If you are resizing it, you’ll need to play it by ear when it comes to the number of sts to do for your button hole.)
Finished circumference: 18 cm/7″ at palm and widest point of forearm.
Length: 30 cm/12″.
Gauge: 6sts and 9 rows per inch.
Yarn: Felici Sport, Chimney
Needles: 3mm, US 2.5
I used the buttonhole from the Voodoo Arm Warmers. Here’s the link. It’s easy and very stable.
Cast on 44. Join in the round, and then triple check that you haven’t twisted it. (Just sayin’.)
K1P1 ribbing for 8 rows. Switch to stockinette.
Row 30: k2tog at end of row.
Row 40: k2tog at end of row.
Row 50: k2tog at end of row.
Row 55: k2tog at end of row.
Row 60: k2tog at end of row.
Row 65: k2tog at end of row.
Row 70: inc 3 using M1.
Row 75: inc 3 using M1. (44 sts again)
Row 84: knit across 17 sts, 10 stitch buttonhole, knit to end of row. (I would knit to 16 sts and use a 12 stitch button hole if I were knitting these for me.)
4 rounds knit plain.
7 rounds K1P1 ribbing.
BO loosely in pattern.

love these! i’m featuring them today at noon CST on Knit The Day!
Very cute! I love how the stripes are not exactly the same. And, she IS rocking that hat. 🙂
Love this pattern! And so will my girl who’s also been rocking a fedora (is it a trend?). Thanks so much for posting it!
Awesome I love them!
These pics make me miss my tap shoes *sigh*
I need to see some jazz hands!!! (are you having a Fosse kind of day??)
Cute! It’s not clear, though, whether you knit them in the round or flat and then seamed them. Am I missing something in the directions?
Love the Jazz hands
