Building Blocks Sleeves
Please select all options.
This is a PDF knitting pattern.
These sleeves are knit in the round from the arm cuff down to the fingers with colorful stripes. Knit them long or shorten them by removing two of the blocks. The small sections are ideal for using leftover bits of worsted weight yarn.

A variety of worsted weight yarns from Primrose Yarn Co., Jill Draper Makes Stuff, and Orkney Angora St. Magnus DK held together with lace weight mohair/silk.
The sample uses 7 colors. I recommend mixing various bits of worsted or aran weight yarns together for the playful stripes. DK weight would also work fine.
