Warm Me Up, Arm Warmer
This cable is called the 3-strand cable but it can also be known as a Braid cable.
Cast On = 29
Finished Size = 6 x 9 inches
Needle Size = 10.5 US
Yards of Yarn = 60-75 yards
Rows = Complete rows 1-12 then 5-12 as needed
The underside is a slip stitch pattern which makes it snug on your arm and very comfortable. It won’t move around. I changed the original pattern to this one because it was the opposite.
It’s an easy pattern for a beginner. There’s the standard type of cable. Even if it’s your first you’ll be ok. I was a beginner when I made all of mine.
In regards to the size. If, for example, you’re making this for someone with a 5 inch wrist then you want the width of the arm warmer to be 1 inch more.
