If you have more luscious arms, you can always add rows of main color yarn to the beginning and end of pattern. The only thing that is fixed is the number of tapestry rows that form the skeleton bones design.

This pattern is available for free.

For this pattern you are making two arm warmers using the tapestry crochet stitch. I highly recommend checking out Carol Ventura’s tapestry crochet website for instructions on how to use this technique to carry strands of yarn inside your work.

You will be using the same pattern for both arms. This means for one arm warmer you will need to keep all of your loose ends on the “right side” of the material and you will be wearing that arm warmer “wrong side” out. I like to clip the alternating color strand (leaving a 3 inch tail) if I know I’m going to be crocheting with only the main color yarn for 10 + stitches.
