Saturday Sleeves are arm warmers that are as versatile to wear as they are simple to knit. They’re perfect for running errands on winter weekends when you sometimes need to cover your fingers and sometimes need your hands free! Want to learn how to work the magic loop technique? This is the perfect project for practicing! I created a video lesson that shows you exactly how you get started working the magic loop for this project, as well as other helpful magic loop tips.
