Crochet Wrist Warmers

February 5th, 2022

Pin it now, make later!

These Crochet Wrist Warmers are so quick and easy to make and suitable for all skill levels. I always feel like fingerless mitts are a satisfying project because of their quickness and their handiness (no pun intended!)

I’m thrilled to be collaborating with the very talented Nicky of Truly Yarn for this project. Nicky reached out to me after I had purchased some yarn and asked me if I wanted to try out his new colourway. My mind wondered as soon as I saw it. It’s certainly a colour which is outside of my usual colour palette that I lean towards but I could just see the beauty in these gorgeous jewelled tones.

Indie Dyed Skeins

Indie dyed yarn can sometimes be intimidating, but they really don’t have to be. I made a little video showing how I prepare my skeins which you can see below.

If you’d like to explore some more Indie Yarn Dyers, take a look at this Directory which was built on our readers recommendations.

Pattern notes

Chain 1 does NOT count as stitch unless otherwise stated.

When working you slip stitches in the cuff, ensure your stitches aren’t too tight as this will make working into the following row difficult.

The wrist warmer is made up by working rows forming a flat rectangle which will be folded and sewn.

When changing colour, this will be done on the last draw through of the stitch before the colour change.

The none working yarn will carried up the work. Please do not fasten off your yarn unless stated.

Making up

With right sides facing, fold raw edges together.Using tail end, sew down row ends working through both thicknesses. For the thumb hole, leave around 2.5 inches open. You can measure up against your hand for the positioning on the thumb hole.

If you do not wish to tie off your yarn for the thumb hole, you can simply continue to sew on one side only for the opening and revert back to working through both thicknesses.

Finishing up

Connect mc to seam. Crab stitch around top of wrist warmers. Join with ss to first st. Fasten off and sew in ends.
