how now, space cow? armwarmers


Size
This pattern is available in three written sizes, but can be made even smaller or larger in multiples of seven stitches. For the following sizes, the measurements are taken around the knuckles. The tightest part will be around the wrist, so if in doubt, go a size up. 

Small: 5″-6″
Medium: 6.5″-7.5″
Large: 8″-9″

The pattern is written with sizes denoted as S (M, L)

Materials
• Less than a skein of Brooklyn Handspun Instant Gratification yarn (Sample is knit in “Lazy Day” ), or comparable yarn
• Set of US size 3 (3.25 mm) double pointed needles, or large circular needle if you’d prefer to magic loop
• Crochet hook to weave in loose ends
• Scrap of yarn or stitch holder

Gauge
7 stitches and 8.5 rows per inch in stockinette.

This is a pretty simple pair of armwarmers designed especially for Brooklyn Handspun yarn. The cuff has a spiraling cable band, and the hand does not have a thumb gusset to avoid ugly variegated increase bumps. The pattern automatically makes a cute little scalloped edge.
