Zebra Multi-color "Armies" (wrist-warmer)
This is my first attempt at writing out a pattern, and it’s something I created myself. these easy “armies” can be made in 30-40 min per pair. It’s kind of a wrist warmer thingy that are all the rage right now.
Hook- 5.5mm, size I-9
Red Heart Super saver yarn in multi color. ( I used color 0932 Zebra ART. E300)
I didn’t measure amount but it’s not that much, I made 2 pairs from one skein and still have a ton left.
Varies if you want it longer add more rows.
doesn’t really matter
slp st = slip stitch
hdc= half- double crochet
dbl= double crochet
Ok Here we go!
Chain 20 (or to fit your arm size, measure chain around your arm about 4-5 in. from your wrist)
Row 1: Slp st into first ch to form a circle, careful not to twist, ch 1 (counts as first hdc). Hdc in each ch (19 sts) slp st into ch 1.
Row 2: Ch 2 (counts first dbl) Dbl in each hdc around, slp st into top of ch 2.
Row 3-8: Repeat rows 1 and 2 alternately ending with a Dbl crochet row.
Row 9: (thumb hole rows) Ch 1 Hdc in each st around, (19 st), ch 2, turn.
