Arm warmers are the kind of crochet item everyone needs, especially going into the colder months! I don’t know about you, but sometimes full on gloves can be a little impractical so arm warmers make a great substitute as you can still use your hands.
They are usually crocheted flat and work up very quickly, making this a project that could easily be done in just a night or two. There are endless colour combinations you can incorporate or you could accessorise them with buttons, fluffy yarn and anything else you can think off!
Experiment with different types of yarn to see what feels warmest or softest on your skin. Wool is typically one of the warmer yarns, although you could even make your arm warmers in a light weight yarn like cotton if you are just wearing them to compliment your outfit.
Anyway, let’s get into this round up of 9 arm warmer patterns you will love!

1. Vintage Arm Warmers
How sweet are these arm warmers by Whistle & Ivy? You may crochet the with or without the thumbholes, the buttons are also optional but they make a lovely extra touch!
The shell edging is also effective too, you could use a contrasting colour to really make it pop or continue with the main colour if that suits your stash better. With plenty of photos throughout you will have these done in no time!
2. Colours of the Rainbow Arm Warmers
I love how eye catching the different stripy colours are on this one! The designer as this arm warmer pattern, as well as fingerless gloves which are just shorter if you wanted to check that out too.
There are separate instructions for different sizes like for kids, teens and adults. They are designed to fit specially around your palm and have a suitable length. The difficulty level is only easy so anyone can give these a go!
3. Arm Warmers
These arm warmers look like they would nice and warm in the winter months. And one of the best things about a fingerless style is that you can still hold your cup of coffee with ease.
The pattern is split into top, bottom ribbing and the main part where you create the holes for your fingers. This may seem tricky but the photos included makes the process look like a breeze.
There is just a small bit of sewing involved by attached the ribbing and sewing the flat piece into a round but after that you’re good to go. Why not make some matching leg warmers by Loveable Loops too?
4. Waved Arm Warmers
This lovely pattern is super accessible as a downloadable pdf off the designer’s website. The stitch creates an interesting wavy design, that I imagine would look even better with stripy colours!
The designer provides clear visual instructions for special stitches. The pattern mostly involves repeating the second row until reaching your desired length so this project cause easily by done whilst say watching tv. Bother warmers are also made the same way which is super handy.
5. Crochet Stripes Arm Warmers
Don’t these arm warmers look cosy? They are longer than some of the other patterns I have included, but I think them being bunched up on your arm looks really nice.
Funky colours for the stripes are also a must here! The stitches involved are only single crochet for the ribbing and double crochet for the main part, so working these up will be a breeze and the textured stitch looks great!
6. Sunburst Granny Square Arm Warmers
Granny squares look so good in most designs, so why not incorporate them into arm warmers! The pattern involves crocheting six granny squares, then attaching a flat worked part that sits on the palm of your hand.
You also have the option of crocheting around the granny squares before assembling if you want to size them up. I hope you have fun making these arm warmers and enjoy exploring all the colour combinations you can make!
7. Stripy Arm Warmers
These arm warmers work up to have a lovely texture and zig zag pattern if you choose to use multiple coloured yarns! The pattern is easy to understand and makes a fun flat worked project.
Unlike some of the others these arm warmers don’t have a thumb hole, so if that’s more your style this pattern might be for you! They are also nice and long, so great for keeping you warm in winter.
8. Mountain Trail Arm Warmers
This pattern creates a lovely texture for these arm warmers! They can be worn at full length or bunched up around the wrist, depending on the weather or how you’re feeling.
These are worked flat and easily sewn together with only one seam. Self striping yarn was used here to create the effect as above, although the designer suggests you could try alternating two solid colours as well. Be sure to give these a go!
