I’m still working on the pattern for the arm warmers I showed off last week, and I’ve found myself in a pickle. The stitch pattern I used for the original arm warmers is very useful for stitch counts that are multiples of ten. I’ve made a very simple adjustment to make a stitch pattern that will work with any odd-number. The issue, however, is in finding a stitch pattern that will work with any even number. I don’t want to have open stitches on either side of the seam, and that means I can’t end on an open stitch.
The pattern is, overall, entirely adjustable once you get the cuff done, and I can just add a line in the pattern that says you must end on an odd-numbered round or a round that is a multiple of ten, but that seems cheating, somehow.
