After having knitted a pair of boot cuffs as a Christmas present, it was requested that I also knit a pair of arm warmers, to match. I didn’t actually have much of the same wool left, so I knitted little glove things instead.
Here’s the pattern I use:

- Knit one row

- Do the opposite on the next row, i.e. knit 1, purl 3.
- Keep this up until it’s the desired length, then cast off.
Then all you have to do is sew them up. I sewed about half and inch up from the top, left room for the thumb, then carried on sewing to the bottom. The buttons I added to match in with the boot cuffs:
