Simple Crochet Wrist Warmers

 

Hello! I’m excited to share with you my very first pattern!  I’ve been looking around for a pattern for some fingerless gloves or wrist warmers and haven’t found anything I really like.  So, I decided to try to just come up with something on my own.  Here is what I have come up with.

Simple Wrist Warmers

I Hook & your favorite yarn

The yarn I used is Vanna’s Choice from Lion Brand in Silver Heather.

Start with a foundation single crochet of 25 chains.  If you look up the tutorial for doing the foundation single crochet it will save you some time once you get the hang of it.  This is really my first project that I used that technique on. Here is a good tutorial I found on Moogly.com that will help you out.

Alternatively you can just ch 25 and sl st to join, making sure you don’t twist the chain.  Then do a row of sc into your foundation ch.

Once you have that done, you are going to crochet in the round 25 for each row.  I alternated between rows of sc and dc, you can change it up however you like.

Alternating rows of sc & dc

After 10 rows, instead of joining your row, you are going to turn, and crochet back. This will leave a hole for your thumb.  I did this for 3 rows.  The next row is sc, and you will actually sc down and back up the hole left for the thumb, and join with a sl st.

Continue with your pattern as usual until you like the length. I did 4 more rows of my pattern and did a finishing row of sc.  All together I did 20 rows, and it measures 8″ in length, and a little over 3.5″ wide.  It fits my wrist pretty well, and my wrist is about 6.5″ around.
