I start with two basic measurements from you which allow me to size your armwarmers for a snug & stay up fit. A fiber is decided upon - either acrylic or merino wool (super soft & luxuriously scrumptious!) We talk colors, solids, stripes, marled even. Decisions are made when multiple colors are involved whether they will be in large bands, as trim, vertical or horizontal. I set to work, taking a few shots along the way and by the end of the week ~ voila!
