Everyone needs some philosopher sleeves to help with reading, thinking, tea drinking - whatever you like to do! The smallest size only uses one skein of sock yarn, so dive into your stash and pull out that one special skein you’ve been saving. These fun sleeves are knit from the top down to the wrist and have basic shaping for a sleek fit. The optional elbow patches are knit separately and sewn on later.
