Fixation Arm Warmer/Hand Cover

During the shutdown one of the Local Yarn Shops we work with suggested I design an arm warmer that can be used as a hand cover for opening doors, pushing shopping carts and other times that you need to touch something while out of the house. The idea being that you could pull it down and back up on the top side of your hand when you wanted to have something as a barrier between your hand and an object. This is particularly helpful when there is no convenient place to wash your hands or hand sanitizer available. They can be worn on your arm or scrunched on your wrist.



Fixation was a natural fit for this project - mostly cotton with just a bit of elastic that has the added bonus of being easy care. You can make a pair of the small or medium with one 50 gram ball. The larger size will use a bit more than 1 ball. The pattern is pretty simple - just knit in the round with a bit of ribbing at each end.
