DIY Friday: One-Day Armwarmers

Remember my friend who really likes purple? Well, her birthday was at the end of October. I still had (have) a ridiculous amount of that yarn, so I worked up a quick pair of armwarmers that, as the title states, only took a day to make. In fact, it took less than a day because I stopped working on it to go shopping for a few hours.

I’m not going to post the whole pattern in the body of this post, but click here to download the pattern in PDF format.

The gloves have knit 2, purl 2 ribbing at the top and the bottom, with the body worked in stockinette with shaping so it isn’t as bulky at the wrist as if it were knit straight. There is a thumb gusset, and the instructions for opposite gussets are included. But you could just as easily make the two gloves with the gusset on the same side because there is no patterning on either side. But making the gussets on opposite sides of the gloves makes it easier to keep track of while working both at the same time. At least it worked that way for me.

If you make these, let me know. I would love to see pictures. You can find the info on this pattern here on Ravelry. Also, let me know if you have any trouble with downloading, or notice any errors in the pattern.
