CROCHET PATTERN - Wrist Warmers



Wrist warmers are perfect for people who want to keep their hands warm, but need to keep their fingers free.  You can wear them while texting, driving, knitting, crocheting, playing an instrument, sewing, playing video games, typing, and much more.

This is an EASY crochet pattern, and is a great project for beginners.


MATERIALS:  H hook, WW yarn, yarn needle, scissors

STITCH GUIDE:  CH - chain, HDC - half double crochet, ST(S) - stitch(es)

Note:  Beginning ch-2 does not count as a st.

MAKE TWO.

CH 32.

Row 1:  HDC in 3rd CH from hook & in each ST across, CH 2, turn.  (30 HDC)

Row 2:  HDC in next 5 STS, CH 5, skip 5 STS (thumb hole made), HDC in each remaining ST, CH 2, turn.  (25 HDC + 5 CH)

Row 3:  HDC in each ST across (including each of the CH-5), CH 2 and turn.  (30 HDC)

Row 4-19:  Repeat Row 3.

Row 20:  HDC in each ST across, CH 1, turn.

FINISHING:  (Make sure it fits your wrist before you finish off.  If it's too big, rip out a row or two.  If it's too small, add a row or two.)  Fold wrist warmer in half and slip stitch evenly through both sides.  After last ST, fasten off, weave in ends, and turn right-side-out.

You can embellish your wrist warmers with a ruffle, pretty buttons, appliqués, or ribbons.  You can make your wrist warmers longer by making a longer starting chain.
