Crochet Wrist Warmers
A while ago I created the Prismatic Beanie and I just loved how the variegated yarn balanced with the solid color yarn. I really thought the hat deserved an encore. So I created matching crochet wrist warmers. They look amazing using two types of yarn or make them a single color for a classic look. The texture in this pattern just really makes it unique.
Working in the Third Loop
The lovely texture of these crochet wrist warmers comes from working a half double crochet in the third loop. I have used the technique a lot. One of my favorite designs with this stitch it the Knit-like Blanket Border. Check out the video tutorial to learn how to crochet in the third loop.
The Right Size Wrist Warmer
The sizes are listed for a toddler, child, tween, small adult, and large adult size. But to make sure you are picking the right size just measure the diameter of your hand right where your fingers meet your palm. This will help you pick the correct size.

The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted ad-free large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy and Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag or basket.

Half Double Crochet into the third loop – Instead of working your half double crochet into the front or back loop of your stitch, you will rotate your project forward and work your stitch into the middle bar or loop on the backside of the stitch right below the back loop. Watch the video tutorial for a demonstration.
Prismatic Crochet Wrist Warmers
-Written in US terms.
– I do not count my CH1, turning chain, as a stitch.
– Both the left and right wrist cuff is worked exactly the same.
Part 1: Cuff
Note: Sizing is listed with the number for the 2 smaller sizes first and then the 3 larger sizes in the parenthesis.
For Toddler and Child Size: CH8
For Tween, Small Adult and Large Adult Size: CH10
Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from the hook, SC in next 6(8)CH. (7,9)
Row 2: CH1, turn, BLOSC into each ST across. (7,9)
Toddler Size: Repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 18 rows.
Child Size: Repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 21 rows.
Tween Size: Repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 25 rows.
Small Adult Size: Repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 28 rows.
Adult Size: Repeat Row 2 until you have a total of 33 rows.
Do not fasten off. When you have completed the correct number of rows, fold your cuff in half so that the first and last row is next to each other. Work a SLSTs through both rows. SLST down the row, joining them together. (7 SLSTs for Toddler and Child Size, 9 SLST to Tween, Small Adult and Adult Size)
When you reach the end of the row you will need to turn your work inside out so that the seam you just created is on the inside of the cuff. Now turn your work so that you insert your hook into your cuff from the outside to the inside of the cuff when working stitches into the side of the rows.
Part 2: Hand Section
– From now on, we will be working all in one direction.
– Sizing is written: Toddler (Child, Tween, Small Adult, Adult).
– If you are working with 2 colors, every row 2 you repeat will be worked with the variegated yarn, and thumb row 1 will be worked with the variegated yarn.
– I recommend carrying your yarn up the inside of your wrist warmer.
Row 1: CH1, Work a HDC into the side of every cuff row. SLST to first HDC. (18, 21, 25, 28, 33 HDC)
Row 2: CH1, Work a HDC in the Third Loop into next 18( 21, 25, 28, 33) STs. SLST to first HDC.
Row 3:CH1, Work a HDC into next 18( 21, 25, 28, 33) STs. SLST to first HDC.
To continue we will be repeating rows 2 and 3 for the number of times listed for your size below. The total of rows worked only refers to the rows worked in the hand section.
Toddler Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 5 Rows in the hand section.
Child Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 5 Rows in the hand section.
Tween Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 7 Rows in the hand section.
Small Adult Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 7 Rows in the hand section.
Adult Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have a total of 9 Rows in the hand section.
Thumb Row 1: CH1, Work a HDC in third loop in next 8( 9, 11, 12, 14) STs, CH 2( 3, 3, 4, 5) and Skip 2( 3, 3, 4, 5) STs, Work a HDC in third loop in next 8( 9, 11, 12, 14) STs, SLST to first HDC.
Thumb Row 2: CH1, Work a HDC in next 8( 9, 11, 12, 14) STs, HDC in next 2( 3, 3, 4, 5) CHs, Work a HDC in next 8( 9, 11, 12, 14) STs, SLST to first HDC.
Now you will continue repeating rows 2 and 3 for the number of times listed for your size below.
Toddler Size: Do not work any more repeats of Rows 2 and 3. Just continue the last two rows.
Child Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 once more for a total of 9 rows in the hand section. Then continue to the last two rows.
Tween Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 twice more for a total of 13 rows in the hand section. Then continue to the last two rows.
Small Adult Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 twice more for a total of 13 rows in the hand section. Then continue to the last two rows.
Adult Size: Repeat rows 2 and 3 three times more for a total of 15 rows in the hand section. Then continue to the last two rows.
2nd to Last Row and Last Row: CH1, Work a HDC in the Third Loop into next 18( 21, 25, 28, 33) STs. SLST to first HDC.
After working the last two rows. Fasten off and weave in your ends. you may notice that the seam is slightly angled. You can wet your crochet wrist warmer and gently tug it to straighten the seam. Then just let it dry.
Make a second wrist warmer just like the first and you are ready to gift or wear your wrist warmers.
