Hello my dear friends 🙂
I can feel it …. fall is just around the corner and this year I will make my own wrist warmers.
They are very easy to make. And I have to say I love easy and fast crochet project. 🙂
I used my left over Schachenmayr Bravo yarn for mine and Schachenmayr Bravo Color yarn for my kids.
You only have to crochet rectangles and then fold it in half. Now you have to stitch or even crochet it together. Oh, almost forgot …. leave a little hole for your thumb open. And that is all you have to do.
If you want you can give your thumb-opening a little edging with single crochet like I did. And maybe a border with picots like I did by my kids warmers. But you don’t have to. You can also leave it all plain. They always look pretty.
Just a little rough guide:
I used Schachenmayr Bravo yarn with a 3.5 mm hook.
Starting chain for mine (adult) chain 38
Starting chain for Sarah (11years) chain 35
Starting chain for Hannah (10 years) chain 32
I crochet our wrist warmers in half double crochet and only in back loops, that gives it a little bit more texture.
You can also crochet them in single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet or any stitch you like.
How to work in back loop:
This stitch creates a extra texture to your work. You will have a distinct ridge on the side facing you. You only have to insert your hook through the back loop only of each stitch (rather than under both loops of your stitch) and complete your stitch as usual.
How to work a picot:
You can make with this stitch a beautiful edging.
You only have to chain 3 and work one single crochet in your first chain. Then skip one stitch and work one single crochet in the next stitch. Repeat and that is all you have to do.
If you have any question please let me know.
Wish you a nice day and see you soon
