The surprising curved form of these arm warmers translates into artful scrunch that keeps your wrists toasty and adds a futuristic note to your wardrobe. Use a single skein of Loft to make a pair in the shorter length (shown in Fauna), or two skeins for the longer option (shown in Snowbound). The pattern is worked circularly from the palm to the forearm and makes an entertaining knit as the curved shape emerges.
