Loooooooooove them. So cute. I made something like these once (not as nice as these) and wore them out of the country, and people thought they were these really expensive things. I loooove the look you made.

They're really cute.

From the pictures, it looks more like a wavy stitch than a DC... So DC CAN be wavy stitches in disguise! Good job!

Thank you so much!
I think that it seems a wavy stitch because of the different shades of the yarn, maybe a monochrome yarn won't make this've got a great look,i didn't saw this detail!
thanks a lot again!

I've made a correction:
on the cuff's scalloped edge, you have to make 5dc instead of 4!
It's not so important, but can make a difference!
thanks everybody!

I LOVE this pattern. I just made a pair for my daughter and she modeled them for me.

I made them with hand dyed flannel I bought on eBay. Since she likes her handwarmers tight at the wrist, I modified the pattern a little and added a flap so it could be stitched together tighter. I left the flap to the outside and added 3 buttons - they are just for show.

They are so lovely!
I like the buttons, i was designing another pair of handwarmers with buttons and ruffles..
I'm so happy you've enjoyed my pattern, thank you very very much!

How cute ! I plan on doing them, but i have questions. From the photo, your wrists seem thiner than mine ^^; What's the diameter once finished ? Do you think i could add stitches to enlarge them a little (how many and where) ?
(Sorry if there are mistakes in the comment, i'm not english bilingual at all)

Thank you a lot !

Hi there, thanx for the pattern. I've made a pair for my older daughter out of sunbeam paris mohair (mohair/wool laine wolle(?)/nylon mix)but after an hour she was itching like mad!!! How can you stop the itching from mohair? I've been told about putting it in the freezer but I don't know for how long and would it take the itching completely away forever? So sorry about all the questions, it's just that she really loves them apart from the itchiness! Thanx again.

How can you make them in kids sizes? Should I use a smaller hook? I'm a beginner at crochet. Any tips would help!

Hi Lilly Flower!
The first Ch23 will be the length of the hand warmer from cuff to begin of fingers, try to make less chains (maybe 12, depends on the length of the child's hand), and work a number of rows so that the crochet piece will wrap the hand of the child leaving the thumb outside...
This way you don't have to change yarn and hook!
I hope it will help!

Hello, I just made those lovely handwarmers, the pattern is perfect ! Do you mind if I give a translation of your pattern on my blog ? I would of course add a link to your page, but many French-speaking crocheters or knitters cannot do it when it is in English ;o) Thank you, Catherine

sweet pattern, I never knew what to make with my "fuzzy" yarn. I will buy more "hairy" yarn for this pattern.


fyi I found your pattern through

In just plain words I think this is what the scarf is:

Crochet a circle using mcp certification  the first paragraph of instructions. End it and weave in the ends. This will look like a doughnut.

Then make the next 28 stitch chain, pass one end through the first doughnut before joining the ends and make your second circle and weave in ends.. This should start to look like the paper chains I made as a kid.

Make another 28 stitch chain, mcsa 2008 hen pass it through both of the other circles. Make your third circle and weave in ends.

Make a 4th 28 stitch chain, pass it through the 2nd circle and the 3rd circle, join the ends and continue.

Every circle you add to the 'chain' from now on will pass through the last two circles you made.

Now that I've made a fool of myself, please mcse 2008t  feel free to correct me if I've misunderstood this pattern. I plan on giving it a try this weekend.
