This any stitch Tunisian Crochet Wrist Warmer is the fourth practice crochet pattern in the Tunisian Crochet Course. Below you will find step by step tutorial that will walk you through how to crochet these fingerless mitts in 4 different styles. Instead of using a gauge for this pattern, we will use dimensions to get the correct sizing.
How to Change the Pattern not the Hook
Since this pattern is apart of the Tunisian crochet course, I am going to assume that you only have one Tunisian crochet hook. That was all that was required for the course. But in order to adjust your gauge (which we learned about in Lesson 5), you would need to adjust your hook size.
Instead, let’s discuss how to adjust a simple pattern. What I recommend is that you work up the first two rows of your crochet project following the pattern, then measure your project. I will explain pattern adjustments using the Tunisian crochet washcloth. The Tunisian crochet portion of this washcloth should be 9″x9″. I worked up two samples and as you can see my pink sample is 10 inches wide and my teal sample is 8 inches wide. Both are 1 inch off the ideal size. If your project is not the right size, then we need to adjust our foundation chain to accommodate the difference.
Both samples are one inch off the desired size. So I measured out how many stitches it takes to equal an inch. In this case, it is 3 stitches. So for the teal sample, I would start the project over and add 3 extra chains to the foundation chain. For the pink sample, I would start the project over and subtract 3 chains from the foundation chain.
The important part is that the pattern turns out the correct size and not that the pattern is followed exactly. For the wrist warmers, we are aiming for the circumference of your hand as the width and the height will be a little less. I have provided a chart below to help you determine the measurements for sizes toddler through adult.
How to Weave in your Ends
In Tunisian crochet, you can weave your ends into the back bulk of the stitches. This is similar to regular crochet, but we do want to take into consideration the way the piece will be stretched. Below is two photos showing which way to weave in your ends based on how the finished project will stretch. The pink arrow shows the direction of the stretch and the white line show which directions to weave in your ends. For the Tunisian Crochet wrist warmers, we want to weave in our ends like the gren sample.

Tunisian Crochet Wrist Warmer Construction
We will be crocheting a simple rectangle to the dimensions listed for the size you are making. Then we will fold the wrist warmers in half and sew up the side following the instructions below.
Step 1: Crochet a Rectangle (Make 2)
-For the width of the wristwarmer I recommend using the circumference of the wearer’s hand.
-After 2-3 rows check your width and see if you need to make any adjustments. Use the instructions above to make adjustments.
-Sizes are written Toddler(Child, Teen, Small Adult, Adult)
-If you are making the wrist warmers with the Smock stitch, remember you need an even foundation chain.
- Chain 18 for Toddler size.
Chain 22 for Child size.
Chain 26 for Teen size.
Chain 30 for Small Adult size.
Chain 34 for Adult size.
Complete a foundation row as normal.
- Work rows of either Tunisian simple stitch, Tunisian Knit Stitch, Tunisian Full Stitch, or Tunisian Smock Stitch until your project measures the correct length for the size you are making.
Toddler – 4.5 inches
Child – 5 inches
Teen – 7 inches
Small Adult – 7 inches
Adult – 8 inches
- Work a Single Crochet bind off row to complete your wrist warmer.
- Fasten off leaving a very long yarn end, make a second rectangle and follow the directions below to finish your wrist warmers.
Step 2: Sew up your Tunisian Wrist Warmer
First take your wrist warmer and fold it in half width wise. Now we will take our yarn end and sew from the top of the wrist warmer down. Fasten off and then sew from the bottom of the wrist warmer up leaving an opening for your thumbs. The measurements are below for how much to sew for each size.
Toddler Size: Start at the top and sew down 1/2 an inch, fasten off. Then start at the bottom and sew up 2.5 inches. Fasten off and weave in your ends. This will leave a 1.5-inch thumb opening.
Child Size: Start at the top and sew down 1 inch, fasten off. Then start at the bottom and sew up 2 inches. Fasten off and weave in your ends. This will leave a 2-inch thumb opening.
Teen Size: Start at the top and sew down 2 inches, fasten off. Then start at the bottom and sew up 2.5 inches. Fasten off and weave in your ends. This will leave a 2.5-inch thumb opening.
Small Adult Size: Start at the top and sew down 2 inches, fasten off. Then start at the bottom and sew up 2.5 inches. Fasten off and weave in your ends. This will leave a 2.5-inch thumb opening.
Adult Size: Start at the top and sew down 2 inches, fasten off. Then start at the bottom and sew up 3.5 inches. Fasten off and weave in your ends. This will leave a 2.5-inch thumb opening.
Sew up both wrist warmers and weave in your ends and your project is complete!
