Cutesy Bow Wrister

IMG_2113Living in Southern California as I do, I don’t really get the opportunity to wear many cool weather accessories seeing as how it rarely actually dips below 70 degrees, even in winter. But…doggone it…I love fall and winter accessories. They’re so cute and cozy looking. And we all know that fall and winter are the best seasons for yarn crafts.

I came up with this little wrist warmer as a way to enjoy a cool weather look in a warm weather environment. Now, if you happen to live in a place that experiences actual seasons, you might want to modify this pattern a bit by using bulkier yarn or even double-stranding it.

Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern uses foundation single crochet (fsc) as the base. It’s actually my first time using it, and I find that it makes for a stretchier base so that you can slip the wrister over your hand more easily. Here’s a great tutorial for it.
  • This pattern is in 3 sizes: S/M, L/XL, and 1X/2X. Model has a 7” wrist and is wearing L/XL.

Materials:

  • 1 skein of Caron’s Simply Soft Yarn in Pagoda or whatever color you like
  • Stitch marker (I use an old hoop earring)
  • Sizes (G) crochet hook (for S/M); sizes (H) hook (for L/XL); size (I) hook (for 1X/2X).

Directions:

Rnd 1: Do 26 fsc and sl st into the first sc to join. There will be a little awkward looking flap leftover when you make the join. Don’t worry. Just use your starting tail and a tapestry needle to tack that down later.

IMG_2077Rnd 2 and 3: ch 1 (does not count as st here or throughout) hdc around, sl st in first hdc to join. (26)

*You’ll be increasing in the next round…

Rnd 4: ch 1, (hdc in next 4 hdc, 2hdc in next hdc) 5 times, hdc to end. (31)

IMG_2094Rnd 5: ch 1, hdc around, sl st in first hdc to join. (31)

Rnd 6: ch 1, hdc in 11 hdc, ch 9, skip next 9 hdc, hdc in last 11 hdc, sl st in first hdc to join. (31)

IMG_2100Rnd 7: ch 1, hdc in each hdc and ch around, sl st in first hdc to join. (31)

IMG_2101Rnd 8-10: ch 1, hdc around, sl st in first hdc to join.

IMG_2104Rnd 11: ch 1, hdc in next 2 hdc, ch 5, skip next 5 hdc, hdc in next 4 hdc, ch 9, skip next 9 hdc, hdc in last 11 hdc, sl st in first hdc to join. This begins the thumbhole.

Rnd 12: ch 1, hdc in each hdc and ch around, sl st in first hdc to join.

IMG_2105Rnd 13 and 14: ch 1, sc around, sl st in first sc to join. Fasten off. Weave in ends.

IMG_2107For right wrister only:

Work up to round 10 above.

Rnd 11: ch 1, hdc in next 11 hdc, ch 9, skip next 9 hdc, hdc in next 4 hdc, ch 5, skip next 5 hdc, hdc in last 2 hdc, sl st in first hdc to join.

Work rounds 12, 13, and 14 as above.

To finish:

  • Turn wrister inside out.
  • Cut a piece of yarn about 22” long. Tie it around the middle of the “bridge” that will become the bow leaving one end much longer than the other.

I’m using contrasting yarn so that it can be seen more easily.

  • Wrap the longer end of yarn around the middle of the bow about 7 times. Tie the two ends together and weave them in.
