My friend asked me to make him some armwarmers. I don't know how to know how much to knit so they fit just right.

How can you tell with those types of things?

I'm not sure what you mean by arm warmers--like sleeves without the sweater?

NakedPancakes 03-16-2006 10:19 PM

lol yes. these are supposed to be from wrist to elbow types.

I just wondered how I would know how much to knit and where to increase if I needed. becauseof how your arm gets bigger.

I suppose i could knit it in short sections? one for the size of your wrist, then so on and so on.

If you did it in ribbing, you'd probably get a better fit because of the stretchiness. Most sleeve patterns increase from the wrist at a rate of two stitches every 4-5 rows, so if you start at the wrist and keep trying it on, you could use that as a guideline.

This guys arm is a bit bigger than mine. I had him measure around at his wrist, elbow and in the middle though. and I have an idea of how long he wants it. so. just do it in loose ribbing, I suppose?

That's what I would try.
