A single-skein project! Projects shown were completed with less than 1 skein per set of Knit Picks Gloss Lace, colorway “Aegean” (blue) or “Sterling” (light grey) (70% merino wool / 30% silk, 440 yd / 402 meters)

The two page PDF includes instructions for three Lengths: Short Forearm, Long Forearm, Opera Length. Sizes range from Woman’s XS (to fit 6” wrist, 9” upper arm) to Woman’s XL (to fit 10” wrist, 13” upper arm). A schematic drawing shows measurements for all sizes. Instructions for leaf lace are provided in both written and charted form.

Photos show womans’ size small, opera length.

One subtle rib on either side of the lace panel makes for a tailored fit. All shaping is worked in the plain area, so lace patterning stays the same for the length of the piece. Octavia’s Armwarmers were designed to coordinate with the Octavia’s Garlands Lace Shawlwhich is available separately. Three skeins of Gloss Lace yarn are enough for both patterns.

A Special KnitPicks Edition is available for $3.99 through the KnitPicks Independent Designer Program.
