Crochet, project 239. Completed 4/14/2010
Adapted from instructions for the “Team Color Crocheted Wristlets” by Kim Werker, originally published in Interweave Crochet, Winter 2008.
One size fits most
1.9 oz, 76 yds worsted weight yarn (allow 2 oz / 80 yds)
1 skein Cascade Lanaloft (100% wool), 113g / 4 oz, 160 yds. Color LL90W: Mystical Pink.
Crochet Hook: US Size H-8 (5mm) crochet hook
18 sts and 14 rows = 4″ in pattern
The original pattern called for two skeins of yarn, 126 yds each, in order to create stripes. So fun to make!
From Kim Werker: “These simply shaped, striped wristlets are worked mostly in single crochet through the back loop for a close-fitting ribbing with … double crochet at one end to provide the flair needed for them to fit comfortable over the lower hand to the thumb.”
