Here is my easy breezy summer armwarmers pattern to match my easy breezy beanie and my easy breezy headband. And the neat thing about this pattern is that you can wear them as armwarmers, or as fingerless gloves!
The pattern works up quick and easy and is easy enough for a beginner.
Hope you enjoy the new summery pattern … and also the beautiful summer weather we are having!
Easy Breezy Armwarmers
Skill Level: Beginner
- Yarn: Red Heart Soft Touch
- Crochet Hook: G 4.00mm (or any hook needed to obtain correct size.)
- Gauge: 2.75″ across 8 chs and 2 hdc.
- Finished Size: When laying flat it measures 3″ across and 8.5″ long. However, it can be crocheted to any length and width.
Ch/Chs = Chain/Chains
FO = Fasten Off
Hdc = Half Double Crochet
Rep = Repeat
Sk = Skip
Sl St = Slip Stitch
Sp/Sps = Space/Spaces
St/Sts = Stitch/Stitches
Size can be adjusted by switching up hook sizes. Originally I crocheted it with a 5mm hook and it turned out too big for me. I switched to a 4.mm and it came out my size (tween size). For a normal adult-size you might want to use a 4.5 or 5mm depending on your yarn.
When you work 2 hdc’s into the same stitch or space, think of these as a set. Then when you crochet your next round and the pattern says “2 hdc in sp before next hdc”, work these in between the previous set of hdc’s as pictured.
Ch 30; join with sl st in first ch being careful not to twist chs.
Rnd 1: Ch 1, 2 hdc in same ch as join, *ch 8, sk next 9 chs**, 2 hdc in next ch; rep from * around ending last rep at **; join with sl st in first hdc. (6 hdc and 3 ch-8 loops)
Rnds 2-26: Sl st into sp before next hdc, ch 1, 2 hdc in same sp, ch 8, *2 hdc in sp between next 2 hdc, ch 8; rep from * around; join with sl st in first hdc. FO at last rnd.
