Yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash Paints (100% Superwash Wool; 220 yards [200 meters]/100 grams); #9860 Jelly Bean - just one skein, baby!

Needles: One set of double-pointed needles (dpns) in size 8

Notions: Tapestry needle

Gauge: 18 stitches = 4 inches in stockinette (well, I kinda made that up and I didn't knit a test swatch. The label says that 5 stitches = 1 inch on US 7 needles, and I'm using 8's since I don't have 7's and I can't spend the $$$ to buy a set. Either way it worked)

Before we get started, let's take a moment to talk about sizing. My forearms are about 8 inches in circumference and each iteration of this pattern (7 stitches per repeat) adds about an inch to the total circumference. Therefore, if your forearms are one inch bigger, you can always add another set of 7 stitches (or if they're two inches bigger, two more sets, etc. - just remember that, if you choose to use this yarn or a similar one, the variegation won't knit up the exact same way). Basically, this pattern is a deep rib, and you have lots of room to play. So let's get to it!

Cast on 42 stitches (49, 56, etc.) and divide between 3 dpns in groups of 7 as evenly as possible. Join in round. If you cast on an even number of stitches, knit 1 inch in a k1, p1 ribbing. Or, if you cast on an odd number of stitches, knit 1 inch in a p2, k1, p1, k1, p1, k1 ribbing.

A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns. There's only one notation note, which goes a little something like this:

Left Twist (lt): skip 1 stitch and knit the second stitch in back loop, then slip the skipped stitch purlwise onto right-hand needle, then slide the knit stitch off of the needle as well

And now that the ribbing is complete and the note presented, let's get started with with the body of the piece, which goes as follows!

Row 1 & all odd rows: * p2, k5; rep from *

Row 2: * p2, lt, k3 *

Row 4: * p2, k1, lt, k2 *

Row 6: * p2, k2, lt, k1 *

Row 8: * p2, k3, lt *

Knit rows 1 - 8 six times in total, then knit another inch of ribbing. Bind off loosely, tuck in ends. Oh, and make a second arm warmer for the other hand! Then, congrats!, you're done. Please note that they will look shrivel-y until you put them on, due to the ribbing.
