Saturday Sleeves


Saturday Sleeves are arm warmers that are as versatile to wear as they are simple to knit. They’re perfect for running errands on winter weekends when you sometimes need to cover your fingers and sometimes need your hands free! Worked in the round with just 1 skein of worsted-weight yarn, it’s also a great project to practice working the magic loop technique if you prefer not to work with double pointed needles.  Click the download button below to get your free copy!
