You think you can't design your own crochet wrist warmers and other thingies and whatnots? You are cleverer than you think!
I hope these instructions get your creative juices oozing and overflowing.
Grab a hook
Grab a ball of yarn
Make a length of chain
Make the chain long enough to reach from your middle knuckle to past your wrist. Then make it a few stitches longer. You need to make it longer because when you wear your wrist warmer and it stretches around your hand it will become shorter - trust me.
Choose your stitch pattern then alter your number of chain to suit - better to increase the number than to decrease
(every stitch pattern needs a certain number of chain. All stitch patterns will say something like "you need a multiple of 5 chain plus 2" or "a multiple of 3 chain plus 1" and so on and so forth. So you make need to make a minor adjustment to fit your pattern. If you haven't a clue what I am wittering about - get in touch and I will try not to confuse you even more)
Oh yes, and most importantly grab a pen and paper. You really must take a note of what you are doing so you can make another identical for your other hand.
For the photo I used double crochet rib stitch - that's single crochet rib stitch if you are American, but you can use whatever floats your boat.
Keep crocheting until it fits around your hand - that's your hand, not your wrist - with a bit of a stretch.
Wrap it into a tube and sew from the top down a bit and from the bottom up a bit and leave gap for your thumb.
Voila. You are a crochet designer
Let me - and anyone else who happens by this website perchance - see your fantastic results (below)
Don't be normal. Be wild and creative. Use fancy yarn, fluffy yarn, extra chunky hunky yarn pr be posh for a wedding and use fine white cotton, a tiny hook and crochet lace . Or be a sex kitten with fine black cotton and fishnet filet. Or go boho and have one pink and one blue.
Add buttons and bows, pompoms and tassels, fluffy edges, beads and charms.
Your hands show your character. Your hands speak your mind. They gesticulate, they point, they wave they caress, they hold. So dress them up to reflect who you are.
And keep cosy warm at the same time with your own unique pair of wrist warmers.
