This weekend I wanted to whip up a quick crochet project using my *favorite* yarn and I've been needing a new pair of long arm warmers to wear with shorter sleeves or to layer under jackets. These arm warmers reach up to my elbows and are a really fast project because the bulky yarn works them up in no time!
I used two skeins (100 grams each) of Sprout organic cotton yarn in color 4350 and a size J/6.0 mm crochet hook. I love Sprout yarn but you can substitute another bulky weight yarn if you prefer.
Here are the simple steps!
Chain 35. Work in Double Crochet for 12 rows to make a rectangle. Knot off your yarn and weave in both loose ends. Your work will look like this (except my ends haven't been woven in yet!):
Join your yarn on one of the short ends and work one row of single crochet. Repeat on the second short end. This just gives each end a smoother, more finished look.
Fold the rectangle in half lengthwise and use single crochet or yarn on a tapestry needle to sew up the long side. You now have a long tube and that is your arm warmer! Repeat all of these steps for the second arm warmer.
These would also make really easy last-minute holiday gifts!
