Crazy Simple Kid Sized Wrist Warmers

Mims is in a matching-with-Mom phase right now. We wear matching outfits at least once a week, and we have matching purple hoodies for the times that matching whole outfits is impractical.  So it didn't surprise me that when Mims saw my new wrist warmers she wanted a matching pair.   And since I am such an indulgent mom, of course I made her a pair.  Of course, the fact that I could make the pair in less than an hour didn't hurt either!  LOL!!


CRAZY SIMPLE KID SIZED WRIST WARMERS
to fit most kids (age 5-10)
Supplies:
2 oz worsted weight yarn (I used 100% cotton yarn, but you might prefer wool in colder climates)
Size G crochet hook
Yarn needle

(make 2)
ch 22, sl st to first ch to close loop (be careful not to twist stitches)
R1: ch 1, hdc in each ch around, sl st to first hdc to close round (22 st)
R2-4: ch 1, hdc in each st around, sl st to first hdc to close round (22 st)
R5: ch 1, hdc in each st around, do not close round, ch 1, turn (22 st)
R6-7: hdc in each st across, ch 1, turn (22 st)
R8: (ws) hdc in each st across, sl st to first hdc to close round, ch 1, turn (22 st)
R9: (rs) hdc in each st around, sl st to first hdc to close round (22 st)
R10-16: ch 1, hdc in each st around, sl st to first hdc to close round (22 st)
Fasten off.  Weave in ends.


Crazy simple, right?!  And if you want to do the striped version you just change color every two rows (4 stripes of your main color, 4 stripes of your accent color).

These are so perfect for winter fun!  They're so fast and so simple to make that you can make a pair to match every outfit (even the ones that don't match with mom!).

  2. I'd like to know how you're supposed to end up with 24 stitches per round when you chain 22 to start and put one stitch in each chain.

  3. Me too. Does not make sense. They are only 2 rows longer.

  4. Is round 1 the top of warmers, with round 16 being the wrist or bottom of warmer?
