A trusty knitted armwarmer to keep your wrists warm on cold nights and point you in the right direction. The arrow design is shaped with minimal cabling, making this an easy introduction to twisted stitch cabling.

This pattern provides written instructions for the entire armwarmer, plus charted instructions for the arrow design.

Techniques: Knitting in the round on double pointed needles, cabling, binding off stitches mid-row, casting on stitches mid-row (cable cast-on suggested).

Yarn: Any solid dk weight yarn that provides good stitch definition will work. Yarns with a pronounced halo (like mohair) or novelty yarns will not showcase the arrow design as well. For the pictured project, I used one ball of Eco Sirdar (100% wool; 109 yards/100 m per 50 g ball).

Finished dimensions:
Length: 8 inches
Circumference 7 inches

Sizing: This pattern fits a medium-sized women’s hand with a bit of ease, or a large hand snugly. Suggestions are included for customizing the size.

Thanks to my lovely test-knitters: MintSauce, suniru, and CraftyLzrd!
