Hello Pink When readers! I am Bethany and I blog at Whistle and Ivy. I hope you are enjoying the fall season and have been able to spend some time outdoors. We have had a beautiful fall in Northern Utah. This morning had a lovely bite in the air, and I am digging out my hats, scarves and gloves in preparation for the cold weather that is coming. Each fall I get very inspired to create warm weather accessories, and these Dainty Bow Crochet Armwarmers turned out so cute and so cozy.

Dainty Bow Crochet Arm Warmers
What you need:
Arm Warmers: (make 2)
Begin by chaining a length that fits around the widest part of your forearm.
(ch 32) Make sure it’s snug. It will loosen up.
Sl st into the first ch, forming a loop.
1. – 11.
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around your loop. Join with a sl st. (32 sts)
Important: Hdc stitches tend to make a diagonal seam when joined. To counteract this, ch 1, hdc in next st, skipping the same st(ch 1 does NOT count at first st). Work 1 hdc in each st around, work 2 hdc in last st, and join with the first hdc (not the chain.). Work two rounds this way, and the third round normally by ch 1, hdc in same st and working a hdc in each st around, joining in the first hdc. Repeat this 3-round sequence in rounds 1- 11.
12. – 23.
You will begin working one decrease at the beginning of each round. Ch 1. Sk same st, hdc in next st. Hdc in each st around. Join with the first hdc.
Your arm warmers will gradually taper down, as they reach your wrist.
24. – 26.
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around (use the same method as above, to avoid the slanted seam.) Join with first hdc.
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in next st. Hdc 2 in the next st. *hdc 2, hdc 2 in next st* – work all around your arm warmers. Join with first hdc.
28. – 29.
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around. Join with first hdc.
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in each st, almost halfway around your arm warmers (where your right thumb would come through, with the seam on the underside of the arm warmers). Ch 5. Sk 5 sts, hdc in next st. Finished the row by hdc in each remaining st. Join with first hdc.
For Left arm warmer, hdc a few more stitches around that with the right. It doesn’t need to be exact, use your arm to estimate a good place to put the thumb hole so the seam is on the underside.
31. – 34.
Ch 1. Hdc in same st. Hdc in each st around. Join with beginning hdc(use the method above to avoid slanted seam). Tie off and weave in ends.
Sew the bow in place on the sides only, so your arm warmers can stretch properly. Using a yarn needle, go in and out down each side. Tie off.
What cozy project are you working on this fall?
