All Grown Up Arm Warmers


Tamara Kelly


Arm warmers are awesome! Whether knit or crochet, they’re a great transition item for fall and spring, and a fantastic layering piece all winter long. And they’re perfect for cold offices and classrooms. Earlier this year I designed both knit and crochet striped arm warmers for kids, but what about the grownups? A reader request prompted me into action, and a complete reworking of the pattern – this time for all the chilly adults!

Materials List

  • US-I, 5.5mm hook
  • Worsted weight yarn, approximately 185 yards each of two colors (Caron Simply Soft in Black and Grey Heather shown)

Finished Size

This pattern is offered in two sizes. The Small version is for people with forearms smaller than 12 inches around at the widest point, an inch or so before the elbow. The Large version is for people with forearms 12 inches or larger. If in doubt, I’d recommend going with the larger version for comfort.


13 dc = 4″ wide (when working stripes); 12 sc = 3″ (length of cuff)
