ERRATA: 02.03.2020 - Dear knitters, a small error had crept in (I guess I have a right-left problem ;-)): Right and left mitten were mixed up, this error is now fixed. If you like, you can download the pattern again! But this is not absolutely necessary, you just have to know that instead of the right mitten you knit the left one and vice versa! I am very sorry for the mistake!

“The flowers of spring are winter’s dreams!“ (Khalil Gibran)

Arm warmers are a nice accessory, especially in the transition periods of the year, when you don’t really want to wear gloves anymore, but still want to have warm hands. The Lace Patterns with the small Bobbles reminded me of sprouting tulips, which slowly but steadily push themselves out of the ground after the cold season and soon bloom. In bright colors they defy the last winter winds and let us already imagine spring!

The arm warmers are knitted in rounds and rows. 2 different Lace Patterns with small bobbles form the decorative element while a Rib Stitch Pattern provides good fitting. You get instructions for 2 variations: Cuffs (without thumb hole) and fingerless mitts with thumb hole.
