Fan Edged Armwarmers ©

I made these to match the Fan Edged Hat. You may need to use a smaller hook to get a smaller armwarmer. These came out a bit larger than I expected (but they are not tight).

What pretty armwarmers, Naomi.
I like them and thank you for writing out the pattern, too.

Hi, I'm Lindy... said...

I love this pattern and thanks for sharing. I have one question. To make the warmer for the second hand, is it the same pattern? I can't tell if the whip stitched seam is visible from the front of the warmer. Do I need to reverse the pattern somehow? Thanks

dragonfaeriee said...

Lindy, Thanks for checking it out! It is the same pattern made twice. Depending on how it looks to you, you could whipstitch it the opposite way and turn it inside right. Hope this helps!!

Manda said...

I just finished it :) Thanks for the pattern!

dragonfaeriee said...

Manda, glad to hear you finished them. Can't wait to see a picture!

Jessica said...

Hi, I am attempting to make the Fan Edged Armwarmers and I'm stuck between rows 10 and 11. I don't understand where to do the double crochet or what chain arches you speak of. Any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Jessica

dragonfaeriee said...

Jessica,
So sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I have started classes at the college and have had no time to crochet let alone check my site!
Let me know if you still need help

Jessica said...

Yes please, I do still need help.

dragonfaeriee said...

Jessica,
Ok, if you are between rows 10 and 11, you should have a 3 chs from row 10, in that space you will put 5 dcs there.
I'm not sure exactly where you are stuck. Maybe a little more detail and I could help more

Thank you for this beautiful pattern. My daughter is a cancer survivor and I was looking for a light pattern for fingerless gloves. She had a condition that is caused by the chemo (side effect) called Raynaud's phenomenon. She has poor cirulation in her hands and feet due to capillary nerve damage. I will take pictures when I finish.

dragonfaeriee said...

That will be wonderful to see! And I am so glad that my pattern was able to help! Can't wait for the pictures!

Kristin said...

Hi, Thanks so much for this pattern. I just finished a pair! I'm new to crochet and found this a great pattern to follow! Where can I email you a photo? Cheers,

K

dragonfaeriee said...

Kristen,
You are very welcome! I am glad you enjoyed the pattern! You can email me a photo at dragonfaeriee@yahoo.com. I can't wait to see them!

Betsy said...

This pattern is so pretty! I want to make them for my little girl; can I start with a smaller beginning chain, and what number should i try?

dragonfaeriee said...

Betsy,
I know you can use a smaller size hook and thinner yarn, but I'm not sure how long your starting chain should be. Possibly, you could measure your daughter's wrist/arm and go from there? Hope this helps :)

Kath said...

Thanks for this pattern! I'm a novice crocheter and am happy to find relatively simple patterns that still produce interesting results.

I've made my first one. It looks great, though it came out rather large for my hand. Would it be best to try it with a smaller hook? I like the yarn I used.

Kath said...

Actually - I just tried doing it with a 28-stitch chain (instead of 33) and taking out one chain from each row, and with the slightly stretchy yarn I'm using, it fits just perfectly for what I wanted. Thanks for putting the pattern out there for us!

dragonfaeriee said...

Kath,

Yes you can use a smaller hook to make a tighter fit :) Let me know how they turn out!

Amanda said...

I made it with 28 and it was still too big!

I think I will make them again with 21. They ARE beautiful!

Melissa said...

Hi there,
I work for a charity and we are making things to sell as a fundraiser. I was wondering if we could use your pattern?
You could email me at melissa@contactsouthsimcoe.ca to let me know how you feel about that.
Thanks Melissa

Mary said...

These are so pretty and easy to make! I made a full set of the armwarmers and the hat as a gift for my sister, and she loves them!

I'm definitely saving the pattern for future use.

dragonfaeriee said...

Mary, I'm so glad that you enjoyed the pattern and that your sister liked them!
Did you post a picture on Ravelry?
If not, send me a pic :)

Just made these for my niece!! They are too cute and she LOVES them! Thanks so so so much for sharing!

dragonfaeriee said...

Thank you for the comment! And I am soo glad your niece is enjoying them!

So easy to make and look lovely. Now on my fourth pair as my friends want them too.

Did double the amount of the first 7 rows to make into arm warmers.

Thanks for a super pattern and well done.

dragonfaeriee said...

I'm so glad you like it :) thank you :)

jswheeldon said...

Do I it the same way for the other hand? I am worried that the seam will show

dragonfaeriee said...

@jswheeldon: sorry for the delay..yes you would create each arm warmer the same :)

911_mommy said...

i'm so sorry to bother you, i'm just having a really tough time figuring out the pattern, i'm afraid i'm doing it wrong. for row 15 when it says 1 dc in 2nd ch of 3 ch at beginning of previous row i have no idea what it is refering to. i understand the abreviations, i just don't get the 2nd ch of 3 ch part. Please help!!! i really want to make these!

Mama Lusco said...

Thanks for sharing your pattern. Off to make a pair :)

HÜLYA TEZER YUVALI said...

I think you have run out out of yarn, for you have omitted last row of the second glove :) Best Regards

Kubitza's Kapers said...

Thank you for the free pattern. My mittens turned out very nice.

so cute, but I've pulled it out twice. I have no clue how to do row 11 at the end. Is that a typo?

Lady Akane said...

These are gorgeous. I found your pattern through Ravelry and tweaked it, just a little so that I could work in the round rather than sewing them up at the end. I've now got a gorgeous matching set of shawl and mits.

Pam Owen said...

I am at row 17 and it says to crochet 4 more times but I dont have four more arches, please help as I have pulled this out twice already to be sure I am following the pattern correctly.

dragonfaeriee said...

Lady Akane: Thank you for the wonderful comments. I hope everything came out okay! I love Ravelry! I will search for you there so I can see your finished work!

dragonfaeriee said...

Pam Owen: I apoligize for the lateness of my response. Did you finish the pattern? Or give up? I will have to make a pair to see where I made the error that you got stuck on. Please let me know where you are at with this.
