  • Alpaca armwarmers + cowl
Red is one of this winter's trendiest shades making Julie Ferguson's matching combo a must-knit for all fashionistas

If you're frequently reaching for your purse, phone or bus ticket when you're out and about, then the constant removal of gloves or mittens is more than likely to lead to one going astray by the time you get home. These armwarmers are the perfect solution. They are long and cosy, and leave your fingers free for everyday tasks. The pretty stitch pattern is created using eyelets and regular and reverse stocking stitch worked in horizontal bands. The snuggly cowl features the same design and is ideal for keeping out the winter chills.
