Spooky Cabled Armwarmers

Here's a free pattern for y'all. These are super warm, super thick and super soft. This yarn might just be my new favorite. If you knit them, please let me know! Send pictures! (I am calling them Spooky because it's Halloween, because the cabling looks like a gnarly tree, and because I am like that. When you knit them say "Wooo" and yours will be spooky too.)

I'm not sure if I'd ever actually wear armwarmers, but I might knit myself a pair just as an excuse to make the pretty cables.
