I had some leftover yarn and decided to design a matching wristwarmer crochet pattern … I didn’t want to waste a single yard of that yummy alpaca!! Here is the pattern so you can work up a pair too!

    Yay! Almost done with the cowl, now I can make the wristwarmers, too! Thanks so much for the lovely free patterns! Making them for my sister’s birthday. 🙂

      My pleasure! So glad you like them 🙂

    This pattern looks fabulous! I do not have the superfine Alpaca yarn though, would you happen to have an idea for a substitute yarn option??

    • Kara November 30, 2014 at 10:29 pm #

      Any DK weight yarn should work.

    Just made one of the wrist warmers and the pattern was so easy and looks great. I used a size I/9 hook and didn’t do one of the repeats. I only have 3 sets of V stitches since I used a larger hook. I also put in a thumb hole and finished them off with a row of crab stitch. I’m making the set for a Christmas present and I’m hoping the recipient will be very surprised.

      Sounds pretty!

    Oh and I plan on making the cowl to match! Thanks for sharing the pattern with us!

      Hope you like it!

    Kara, these are beautiful! Any idea how much yarn you used? I have a small hank (no length noted, just 45g) of really special yarn that I thought might be great for these wristwarmers but have no clue if my little hank (’tis tiny) will cut it.

    Thanks for sharing your pattern!!!

    I am definitely making this and the matching cowl. Thank you so much for such a lovely pattern.

      My pleasure, Bev! So glad you like them 🙂

    Love your V-Stitch patterns! I made your V-Stitch Cowl to Wrap for a friend for Christmas and she loved it! Was going to make her the Wristwarmers also but she preferred a headband ear warmer… so I improvised your Wristwarmer pattern and it came out great, too.

    Does your thumb go through a V stitch?

    • Kara January 18, 2015 at 9:25 pm #

      Hi Sharon 🙂 Are you asking if the space in the V stitch is large enough to fit your thumb? If so, yes,I could get mine through

  9. Debra August 20, 2016 at 2:45 pm #

    Hi, first thanks for the patterns! They are wonderful!
    However, I dont know why I have such a mental block when a pattern says to repeat a certain number of rows a certain number of times. I am on row ten and it seems to be confusing me yet again! Arrrggg! Is there an easier way to explain it other than the easy way you have explained it? 🙂
    I think it’s the part that says to repeat all those rows three times that has me stumped. In my head if I repeat all those rows it seems like I would have some really long wrist warmers!
    Btw,I’m working on the wrist warmers, I forgot to mention that.
    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    • Kara August 21, 2016 at 10:22 pm #

      Hi Debra 🙂 Yes, that throws me off in patterns too! What I find helpful is making little tally marks next to the row to indicate which repeat I’m on until I complete the number of repeats indicated in the pattern. Hope that helps!

    These were so easy to make and worked up super fast . I used Redheart unforgettable yarn. Will use my left over yarn to make the cowl.

    These are so pretty. I’ve been looking at patterns for fingerless gloves & these seem even better because you can just slide them up or down. Now I’m going to go look at the scarf pattern. Thanks!

  12. Chrissey November 13, 2017 at 8:16 pm #

    Thank you for this pattern, I am excited to try it out and see how this turns out.

  13. Lisa Woods November 14, 2017 at 8:45 am #

    This is such a beautiful pattern. I just love it! Thank you for sharing it. I’m starting it now and was wondering if there is a gauge for it. I didn’t notice one but may have missed it.

    • Kara November 14, 2017 at 12:17 pm #

      Hi Lisa 🙂 Nope, you didn’t miss it. I had it listed under the cowl pattern but I should have included it here as well. The gauge is 12 sc and 12 rows = 4 inches.

  14. V Walsh November 18, 2017 at 10:10 am #

    I just used your lovely design to make a fingerless glove. I altered it a bit to include a thumb hole and used Caron Simply Soft Paints in Oceana. The result is beautiful. I’ll be donating a set of gloves and the matching cowl to a fellow single mama for Christmas. My young daughters picked the yarn out. I’m thankful to those of you who create such great patterns and share them with the world so those like me on a budget can still manage to make beautiful things for friends and family.
