FREE Crochet Pattern: Crochet Plaid Arm Warmers | Make these adorable and cozy arm warmers in a plaid color! Add a bow for a cute finishing touch.

I think these crochet plaid arm warmers were on a few minds in the Facebook group, I even saw your own versions! You all are so clever and one step ahead of me! :) But crochet plaid arm warmers have been on my mind too, so if you haven’t made your own version, you can use mine! These work up really nicely and I love how they look and feel on. I added a cute little bow to mine, but you should feel free to omit that if it isn’t your style!

You can size these differently two ways: the easiest I think is going up a hook size or using bulky yarn. The other way is starting with a longer foundation ch. Bear in mind, to keep a seamless color pattern, you foundation chain needs to be in multiples of 6.

Using a bit of black yarn, tack the carried yarn at the thumbhole down by sewing a stitch or two around the nearest black plaid stitch. 

Add a bow like mine by working this pattern. Be sure to sew down to two outside ends only, so it can stretch easier. Sew it down with a simple running stitch.

  1. Okay for the plaid stitch is it two or three of each color I have 30 stiches but where you chain five that’s the end of my round what am I doing wrong

    1. You should have worked the ch 5 starting at stitch #10, after working 3 blocks (9 sts). It sounds like maybe you just put it in the wrong place.

  2. i made one of these and found that the diameter is too small for my arm. what would be the best way to increase without messing up the plaid pattern? would just up a hook size or 2 work? these are super cute, btw. definitely hoping to find a way to make this work! TIA!

    1. Yes, a hook size would be best! You would need to increase it by 6 to keep the pattern consistent. So you can make the pattern as is with a larger hook, or go up 6 sts on the foundation and go down a hook size.

  3. I have tried for 3 hours to just get the 1st row of plaid stitches to come out right.
    After I finish doing all of the rows below…..
    Ch 30. Careful to not twist the ch, sl st into first ch, forming a loop.
    1. Ch 1. Sc in each ch. Join with sl st. (30 sts)
    2. Ch 2. Work the Dc Plaid Stitch, alternating between your dark and mid. Join with sl st. (30 sts)
    I come up with 3 stitches left. If i keep going the black will be next to the black again. HELP!? I have ordered the same yarn you are using and needle.

    1. Are you counting your stitches? 30 sts is 5 sets of 6( 5 sets of 2 alternations of black and wine). The only way you would get 2 colors next to each other is if you are working 27 stitches or 33. What is your total row count?

  4. I can not even believe how cute these are. I can’t wait to crochet a pair for myself! I recently made my niece a blue, purple, and cream version of your plaid slouchy hat. I was so surprised how easily it came together. Your video was so helpful to me. Thank you for sharing these fantastic patterns!!!

  5. These are so creative! I just love how you put those colors together to create the plain look! You are so talented! Love them!
