Sweet Striped Crochet Arm Warmers


Tamara Kelly


This past January I shared the pattern for the Sweet Striped Arm Warmers – a fun knit pattern for kids. It’s popsicle season now, but cold weather is coming… eventually… and I’ve had a few requests to translate this pattern to crochet. So let’s get a jump on fall, with a project that will keep the kids warm once the cold weather hits – but is small enough to keep you cool while you work on it!

Materials List

  • US-I, 5.5mm hook
  • Worsted weight yarn, approximately 175 yards each of two colors (Caron Simply Soft in Limelight and Grape shown)

Finished Size

Child to Teen


These arm warmers were designed for tweens and young teens, but it’s easy to size these for a younger child: skip the last two stripes and go straight to the cuff! In other words, after finishing the 7th stripe, switch to color A, work 27 bpsc, and work rows 1-28 of the ribbed cuff pattern.

Special Stitches:

bpsc – back post single crochet

bpdc – back post double crochet

blo – back loop only
