Another pair of crochet ribbing wrist warmers, made with beautiful merino wool yarn

These crochet ribbing wrist warmers are a favourite. I love a crafty project that uses some luxury yarn and don’t often get to treat myself. But, after I stumbled upon KosyKitchen Fibres and fell in love with the seclections and colour combinations I had to get more.

This is the beanie I made with some more of KosyKitchen’s yarn.

I choose this gorgeous autumnal combination called Chesnut Trees with mauve and greens … Adore it so much. I could only afford I skein of 100g, though, but knew it would be enough to make some wrist warmers.

If you’re familiar with my patterns, you know I like to keep things simple and this is no exception.

To make the wrist warmers, we’ll use SLIP STITCHES in BACK LOOPS ONLY, throughout the whole project. But to give the wrist section a slight contrast, we’ll work this part in a slightly larger hook size.

Check out some of my other projects using crocheting ribbing.

Start with making the main body of the wrist warmers by crocheting slip stiches in the back loops only until you reach the desired width that will fit around your wrist.

Join each side together by sewing up the ends, but remember to leave a gap about one third up so the thumb can fir through.

Repeat the joining process with the wrist section (which has been made with a larger hook) and then join the 2 sections together.
