Witchy-striped, ruffled armwarmers, legwarmers, and a neckwarmer are knitted in the round and fitted for a feminine look. Fast and fun to knit: no seaming or blocking. These warmers are great for Halloween, and they can be made in other holiday, piratey, or school colors… or to complement your everyday witch wear.

The legwarmers are kneesock-length and can be made in a short sock length, if desired. The armwarmers cover most of the forearm and can be made in a short wristwarmer or gauntlet length. Another variation would be evening length, going past the elbow.

Needles, etc.: uses US 4/3.5 mm circular needles with 30” - 40” cable; larger size needles are recommended for neckwarmer bindoff; you’ll need 2 stitch markers.

Yarn: the pictures show Wool-Ease Sportweight, which has been discontinued. Plymouth Encore DK was swatched and tested with this pattern, and works fine.

Difficulty: medium

Schematic diagrams are included in pattern.

This design is available as a crochet pattern, Witch Warmers in Crochet.
