About this Pattern


If you’re brand new to crochet and looking for a quick first project, our beginner crochet wrist warmers is a great place to start. Especially if you’re not a blanket or scarf person. A pair of wrist warmers is a practical way to develop your skills with a project you can have done in an evening.

With this project you’ll get to practice fundamental crochet skills; the chain stitch to start the project and single crochets throughout. Mastering these two stitches is a must for any crocheter and they’re nice and easy to keep you engaged.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We have a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations here on this page as well as written instructions and a tutorial to walk you through our beginner crochet wrist warmers step-by-step.

Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
