To Arrive Where I Began Knitting Pattern
These elbow-length arm warmers are magical! They protect you from the cold and relieve anxiety, at least for me. They also contain a secret, a road map back home from wherever you are and a trace of all the paths you’ve taken and portals you’ve gone through, no matter where you’ve been.
The sleeves are knitted as mirror images. The cable panel runs on the front of the arm and new cables emerge from the inner side of the arm, like they would come from your heart. The variegating colors tell their own story of different times in your life, whether happy or crappy, it’s all there on your life’s path.
The inspiration for these came from a mix of my Viking heritage with the cables and shape of the Viking arm shield. The colors and the rustic nature of the yarn inspired me to create something magical!
