52 Weeks of Literary Crafts: Gryffindor Arm Warmers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Believe it or not, this is not part of the gift set I’ve been making for my Gryffindor friends that are expecting. Apparently I know a lot of Gryffindors, because this set was a Christmas gift for a completely different friend. This friend of my tends to get very cold hands, and thus has a nice collection of arm warmers and fingerless gloves…so naturally I had to supply her a pair of Gryffindor ones!

The pattern is pretty simple on the whole, the first and last two rows are knit 1, pearl 1, while all the other rows alternate between a full knit or pearled row. I switched colors every four rows. As for the form itself, I literally just knitted it in a rectangle (the measurements I knew I’d need, in this case) and then stitched two of the sides together, leaving a gap for the thumb to go through.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
