I know some beginners who really want to to use this yarn and are having a hard time finding patterns at their level, my own wrist warmer pattern included! So I sat down this weekend and made up a simple pair of wrist warmers that use up exactly 1 skein of these yarns.
This pattern is a great way to practice your hdc (half double crochet) stitch, joining rounds, turning work and changing colors. Please feel free to comment with questions or email with questions, but these techniques are easily found on YouTube if needed. So gather your supplies and let’s get hooking!
1 Skein/Braid Caron x Pantone Yarn in preferred colors (‘Dance Party’ shown)
1 Crochet Hook Size J
1 Yarn Needle
Make 2 of each of the following:
Ch 25, join with slip stitch to make a circle
Test circle size around wrist, partway up wrist, if you need a few more or less stitches, adjust accordingly. Substitute that number for the number of stitches in this pattern. You will end with the same amount of stitches you begin with, so this makes it very simple to keep count.
Rows 1 through 4: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first hdc (25 stitches)
Rows 5 through 8: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first hdc (25 stitches)
Rows 9 through 12: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first hdc (25 stitches)
Row 13: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first hdc (25 stitches)
Rows 14 through 16: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch to end, instead of joining with slip stitch, turn your work (25 stitches)
Change colors and chain 1
Row 17: Ch 1, hdc in each stitch to end, turn and ch 1 (25 stitches)
Rows 18 through 20 – Repeat Row 1 (25 stitches)
Row 21: Ch 1, sc in each stitch around, slip stitch to beg sc (25 stitches) and cut yarn w/ tail for sewing. Pull yarn through slip stitch to tighten and secure work.
Turn work inside out, sew in beginning and end tails and practice tying off your rows where you changed colors and sewing in your ends.
Turn work right side out and try it on! Enjoy!
