Sweet Life is a pattern for DK weight yarn. These simple and elegant arm warmers work well in a solid color, giving a very polished and refined feeling to the arm warmers, or a variegated yarn where the mock honey comb stitch breaks up pooling and allows the variegation to shine. DK yarn makes this a very fast knit.
Sweet Life was designed during a low point in my life. We have all lost a family member or been the person supporting loved ones who have lost someone dear to them. These arm warmers were my outlet of grief, frustration, sadness, and anger. They tie me to that point in time and the person I lost. But most importantly, they remind me that life is short, beautiful, and sweet.
