So! New pattern! This object has existed for quite some time, but I'm trying to get the pattern up so that someone at knitting circle can make it.

Dark Mark Armwarmer

This is a gauntlet with the Dark Mark (a symbol of evil from the Harry Potter series) shadow-knit on the inside. It's the left arm only, as that is the appropriate placement for the Mark. If you want to make a (plain) right arm, you're welcome to, but you're on your own for switching the thumb around to the other side. I might make a match for it in the future, but not any time soon.

Gauge: 6 sts / 9 rows per inch in stockinette

U.S. 4 dpns

worsted weight yarn – 2 colors (I used Wool-Ease.)

MC – Black CC – Green

The chart, which covers the inside of the arm (the part that's shadow-knit) can be found here.

w/ MC, CO 56 sts, join in round.
