Plus-Size Armwarmers


Momwithahook Crochets


This is a pattern for Plus Size Arm Warmers. There are a lot of arm warmer – wrist warmer patterns out there and most are made for thin long arms. My chubby arms and wrists are large and get larger as they go up toward the elbow. I came up with this pattern for myself but thought others might want to have a simple arm warmer pattern that they can tweak to fit their unique arms. 🙂

Materials List

Size H/8 5.000mm Hook
2 skeins Patons SWS (soy wool solids) I used Natural Raisin and Natural Moss
Stitch marker

Tapestry needle

sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet
dc= double crochet
ch= chain

st = stitch

Finished Size

Size L – XL (customizable to your arms)


Gauge is not known. For thicker yarn weight like one used above, you will need less stitches. (use your arm width and length of armwarmers you wish as a guide)


This was a thicker yarn, if you use a thinner weight yarn you will have to increase the # of stitches for length and width.

The Pattern

Natural Raisin:

Start out with a chain of 26. Then sc in second ch from hook. Single Crochet in each st across. (25stitches)

chain1 turn (each row)

Single crochet in each stitch across for 13 rows

Slip Stitch in the first 8stitches, then single crochet in the remaining 17 stitches. (This is the hole for the thumb) chain 1 and turn

Single crochet in next 17stitches, chain 7, then sc in last stitch. Chain 1 turn

Sc in each stitch across. (25stitches) ch 1, turn

Repeat this 13 more rows.

You’ll have a total of 26 rows.

Finish off

Fold the ‘square’ in half matching up the ‘thumb holes’.

You will now need to thread your tapestry with the yarn you will be using to sew up the armwarmers. (I used natural raisin)

Sew up the sides of the arm warmers leaving the thumb space open.

Take the Contrast Color (I used natural moss):
Knuckles –
join with a sl st to any stitch, sc in each stitch around. ch 1 do not turn

reverse single crochet in each stitch around. Finish off

join with a sl st to any stitch, sc in each stitch around. ch2 (mark end)
hdc in each stitch around. ch1

reverse single crochet in each stitch around. Finish off.
