Ribbed Crocheted Wrist Warmers–Free Pattern!

Hey Folks,

This has been a few days in the making. I designed my FIRST EVER pattern from scratch recently, and I’m excited to share it for FREE on the World Wide Web. If you have found this post through searching for a free wrist warmers pattern and decide to give it a try–please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or even corrections to add. I’d be happy to get back to you right away, and even make any corrections to the pattern. It is my first, after all.

Lets begin with a few pictures, shall we?

I had a difficult time finding the right lighting for pictures, so I decided to take it outside and show off my beautiful garden at the same time. 🙂

Now, here is (hopefully) all the information you need for the pattern! I hope you enjoy.

For anyone who isn’t sure how to do some of the more difficult stitches, I have attached some video tutorials at the end of this post from The Crochet Crowd to help you out (both for righties and lefties!)

Materials Used:

Approximately 50g (or less) of any light worsted weight yarn

Size 4.00mm crochet hook

Tapestry needle

Stitch marker is recommended but not necessary

Gauge:

Gauge is not important for this pattern.

Abbreviations:

Ch – Chain stitch

Sl st – slip stitch

DC – Double crochet

SC – Single crochet

FPDC – Front post double crochet

BPDC – Back post double crochet

TR – Triple crochet

Sk – skip

St – Stitch

All terms used are American. Size is approximately equal to women’s size S/M. It would be easily converted to larger sizes, however, by simply adding a longer chain in the beginning and then continuing in the regular pattern. It is important to keep even numbers in the chain.

1. CH 3. DC in each ST around, also being careful not to twist.
