Introduction

Wristables
I’ve always had a thing for fingerless gloves and wrist warmers. When I was a little kid, I always wanted to cut the fingertips off my gloves so I could be like Bob Cratchit from Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, but my mom wouldn’t let me. Years later, I cut the fingertips off the first pair of gloves I bought in college. I’ve seen a lot of knitting patterns for wrist warmers, but I haven’t seen many crocheted wrist warmers so I thought I’d make these!

Although this pattern is done in Artesano Alpaca, it is easily adaptable to other yarns and is a great way to use up scrap yarns and one-skein impulse purchases.
