To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
- John Burroughs

This is a pattern for colourwork arm warmers worked from the bottom up and in the round.
You may easily change size by going up or down needle sizes. For example, working with a gauge of 30 sts = 4in/10cm will decrease the circumference to 8.5in/21.5cm.
