While Travelling... Crochet Wrist Warmers

I was away visiting my family for a couple of weeks.  While there I saw in a shop a nice (very expensive) sweater made in crochet (with knitted cuffs and collar) and I really liked the stitch.  I took a photo and here is my take on the stitch.  I was just making a small sample which works better in the round because of the two colours and then I thought... this would make a nice pair of wrist warmers!  

Now, I like the look of wrist warmers but does anybody really wear them?

Please tell me if you do!

Best wishes,


  1. It is a cute stitch! I'd say people can still wear wrist warmers. I have bad wrists and wear them sometimes.

  2. I wear them to help with wrist pain from knitting and crochet

  3. Great! :)
    Since I am almost always cold, I would wear them. ;)

  4. I do like the look of them, works well in two colours. I don’t know who wears them, but I can say that fingerless gloves are popular on my market table. A bit longer than your wrist warmers.

  5. When its cold I sometimes wear glove with mittens overtop. My fingers get cold, not my wrists so no I wouldn't wear them. Sadly I missed the pattern draw, will it be available for sale?

    1. Hi Bernice, thank you for your comment. Yes, the pattern will be available in my shop soon, I've been a bit disorganised and not got around to making the listing yet. Thank you for your interest!

  6. Oh, yes, I wear wrist warmers in cold weather. Sometimes I even wear them when I sleep. I usually make mine rather long, so they keep part of my forearm warm, and they often have a hole for my thumb, then the rest of the wrist warmer extends to cover at least an inch or two of 'fingers,' also.

    Your crochet stitch is very pretty. It looks like it would be nice and warm. A whole sweater made with that stitch would be lovely, too.


  7. I wear them when it's cold. Last year I made them for the high school kids, and I've seen some of them wearing them already.

  8. I do because my sleeves are never long enough for my long arms!


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, it's always appreciated!
