Before you start crocheting it is always good to read the bullet points i prepared below.

GOOD TO KNOW

● ByStellaM cannot accept responsibility for the finished item if any yarn other than the recommended yarn is used.
● Yarn quantities are based on average requirements and are therefore approximate.
● Color reproduction is as close as color accuracy on screens.
● Instructions are written using US terminology
● Repeat figures in round brackets ( ) the number of times stated afterwards.
● Instructions are given for the smallest size, with changes for the larger sizes given in square brackets [ ] afterwards.
● Where only one figure is given, this relates to all sizes.
● Where the figure 0 appears, no stitches, times or rows are worked for this size.
● Total amount of rows/rounds is given between [ ] at the end of each row/round in the pattern

TENSION (GAUGE)

26 stitches and 34 rows measured over 10 cm, 4 in of Single Crochet through back loop (sc tbl), using a 2.5 mm hook needed to obtain correct tension (gauge).And 22 stitches and 10 rows measured over 10 cm, 4 in of Double Crochet, using a 2.5 mm hook needed to obtain correct tension (gauge)
It is vitally important to check your tension (gauge) before starting as working to the wrong tension (gauge) will mean your garment will not be the size shown and could result in yarn being left over, or more yarn being required.

Before beginning, crochet a tension (gauge) swatch at least 13 cm, 5 in, square and measure your tension (gauge). If there are more stitches and rows than stated, try again using thicker hook. If there are fewer stitches and rows than stated, try again using thinner hook.

3. Sew the crochet panel.

Than start sewing starting from the cuff and ending at a point that makes it comfortable to wear. Sew the other sleeve as well starting from the cuff. Leaving the middle section open as wide as you need to. I have prepared some pictures with measurements that will help you to have a view of the total amound of stitches crocheted in this arm warmer pattern. As well as the measurements on how to sew the panel in order to have the final product.

I will insert for you also a picture on how the arm warmers look hanged, since i had many requests to see it from the back.
