It is hard to think about things that keep you warm when the temperatures outside have been so high, but if you want to get a jump on your cooler weather crochet items, these crochet arm warmers are the way to go! You can crochet quite a few pairs and have them ready as Christmas gifts for your family and friends. The best part is (besides how quickly they work up), they are small. This means that not only do they take up less space while you are saving them, but they won’t be draping over you as you crochet in the heat!
Arm warmers are a stylish and functional addition to your wardrobe. They are perfect for chilly days, especially when you are indoors and don’t want to wear your coat. You may want to make a few pairs: one to keep in your desk or locker at work, one for your car, and another for home.
Arm warmers make great gifts and they are sure to be a hit in your craft booth or boutique.
