Cotton Crochet Arm Warmers
Last year I had a neighbour request some cotton arm warmers so I worked up a pair of them completely freestyle and never wrote out a pattern for them. As soon as I posted the picture of them I began getting orders and requests for a pattern. At the time I was not writing patterns, I would have never thought a year ago that I would be where I am today with over 30 patterns available online!
The lady I made the cotton crochet arm warmers for really likes them in the cotton, they do stretch as you use them but you can wash cold and dry them in the dryer. Just make sure you use a laundry bag when you do, then again you should always use a laundry bag for your crochet/knitted type goods and only wash with delicates and avoid velcro!
