Arm warmers are called SLEEVES. Throw that in Google and see what you come up with.

Here is a simple pattern you might be able to modify.

I'm wondering if maybe you could take a basic men's sweater pattern (size large or whatever size should fit) and just knit the sleeves in the round then bind off when they reach to the elbow? :thinking:

How can you tell with those types of things?
Have you checked out the free patterns that hang around the yarn? OK, took me a minute but I went and got my freebie and then found it on their site. These 'wrist warmers' are not at all girlie and can be worn by either sex. Whatcha think?
