Rules for Feeding the Stash

Free Pattern: Transitions Sleeves

Transitions Sleeves are the perfect accessory for the transitions between seasons. Wear them pulled up above the elbows for elegance, or wear them slouched down towards your wrists for casual comfort.

The red sleeves are knit from Knit Picks Stroll Sock Yarn. The striped sleeves are knit from Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn. The pattern can be knit from less than 400yds of any fingering-weight yarn.
