I was asked to design “manly black armwarmers” to wear while riding a motorcycle - something to close the gap between the leather jacket and gloves. Cables were the first thing that came to mind. He liked them so much that I made a pair for myself as well! These are just the thing for scenic motorcycle rides in the country - or blustery fall days in the city. Made of 100% wool, they are warm without being too bulky, and fit tightly to help keep the wind out.

NOTE: A correction was made to this pattern on January 28, 2010. If you do not have the version labeled ‘v2’, you may want to consider downloading it. The correction was to the row-by-row instructions in the decreases for the thumb opening.
