This wrist warmer crochet pattern is fast and easy to crochet up. I used Patons Brilliant yarn, but due to the nature of the pattern, you can use just about any type of light-weight yarn. You could use a thicker yarn, but it would not allow for as many stitches around and therefore, would not look as lacy.
You can use this pattern to crochet up a pair of matching legwarmers, a cowl, a headband or ear warmers. To make it wider simply increase the beginning chains by a multiple of 4, and to increase the length simply do more repeats of round 2. For the headband and ear warmers omit pattern row 6 in order to avoid the flare.
Material: Patons Brilliant
Hook Size: G/6-4.00MM
Pattern is written for the smallest size, instructions for the medium and large are given in parenthesis ().
