I was in the mood for something small and easy. Something cool and girly.

Arm Warmers.. they are getting really popular now and I think they're fab!

 

I found a picture on a Russian site of a Lace stitch, it's basically the broom lace stitch, without the broom. And I hate the broom! 

 

These are really easy to make. You can download it here.

 

Supplies:

 
Yarn. Any yarn would do, just add a multiple of 5 to get to the desired length.
 
Hook needle. It depends on the yarn which needle to use.
 
Yarn needle, to weave in ends.
 
Size:
 
This is very easy to convert to different size.
 
The length:
The begin chain has to be a multiple of 5 plus 3 for the first DC.
For a child aged 2-3 you chain 30 plus 3
Child aged 4-6 you chain 40 plus 3
Child aged 6-10 you chain 50 plus 3
Child/teen aged 10-14 you chain 60 plus 3
Teen/adult you chain 70 plus 3
Adult you chain 80 plus 3
 
The width:
Is changeable by adding rows of DC after R5 and R13
For a child aged 2-3 you add 1 row of DC
Child aged 4-6 you add 2 row of DC
Child aged 6-10 you add 3 row of DC
Child/teen aged 10-14 you add 4 row of DC
Teen/adult you add 5 row of DC
Adult you add 6 row of DC
And the same amount on the other side
 
The thumb hole
For a child aged 2-3 you add the thumb hole in the DC Row after R5, start with 4DC and CH2.
Child aged 4-6 you add the thumb hole in the DC Row after R5, start with 5DC and CH3.
Child aged 6-10 you add the thumb hole in the second DC Row, R7, start with 6DC and CH3.
Child/teen aged 10-14 you add the thumb hole in the second DC Row, R7, start with 6DC and CH4.
Teen/adult you add the thumb hole in the third DC Row, R8, start with 8DC and CH4.
Adult you add the thumb hole in the third DC Row, R8, start with 8DC and CH4.
 
This is a guideline, the size of the hook you use and the yarn is also important, for this pattern I used yarn 10wpi and hook 5 for the pink arm warmers and for the blue green arm warmers I used yarn 12wpi and hook 3.5. 
 
And don't forget to switch sides of the thumb hole  So the second arm warmer has the DC row with thumb hole on the second part of the arm warmer.
 
I will follow the pattern the teen/adult.
 
R1, CH73, in third CH from hook and the next 4CH after that, pull up a loop, (you have 6 loops on your hook now, 5 big loops and your normal loop), insert hook through all loops, YO, pull through first 5 loops and make a SC with your normal loop, 4SC through the same 5loops, *pull up loop in next 5CH, 5SC through the same 5loops*, repeat till the end. Turn. - 70
 
R2, *CH4, SLST in between DCclusters*, repeat till end, CH3 and turn. - 70
 
R3, *pull up loop in next 5CH from R2, 5SC through the same 5loops*, repeat till the end. Turn. - 70
 
R4, *CH4, SLST in between DCclusters*, repeat till end, CH3 and turn.
 
R5, *Dc2together, DC, DC2together* in each CH4Space till end, CH3 and turn. - 42
 
 
R6 and R7, DC in each st till end, CH3 and turn. - 42
 
R8, DC in next 8st, CH4, skip 4st, DC in each st till end, CH3 and turn. - 42
 
R9 and R10, DC in each st till end, fasten off after R10. - 42
 
R11, SLST on the first CH of R1, *CH4, SLST in between DCclusters*, repeat till end, turn. - 70st
 
R12, *Dc2together, DC, DC2together* in each CH4Space till end, CH3 and turn. - 42
 
R13 and R17, DC in each st till end, CH3 and turn. - 42
 
Fold work, good side in, SLST both sides together using outer loops.
 
Edge topside (finger side) with SC.
Weave in ends.
 
Tip: The tail of the first Chain is finger side.
 
For the second arm warmer, switch rows 6 - 10 with rows 13 - 17. And on the thumb row, R15, DC in next 30st, CH4, skip 4st, DC in last 8st.
