Cozy girls crochet scarf and wrist warmers pattern
Looking for an easy handmade crochet gift....look no more!
Let's face it fall is in the air, at least it is here on Whidbey Island. The maple trees are turning a little yellowish brown and the nights are getting a bit brisk. This is my favorite time to gather my crochet hooks and yarn and start on projects for Christmas how about you? Fall is also the start of football season and I am not boasting or anything but I live in Washington State and the Seahawks are #1!!! I hope they do it again this year but it was such a treat to see them win the Super Bowl last year. So what a great combination it is to watch football and crochet or knit. It just doesn't get any better than this folks that is for sure.
As a woman, I believe in my heart that God gave us the ability to multi- task and get so many things accomplished at the same time yet we are getting enjoyment out of each and every one of them. At least I do, I do my best to bring joy into all that I am given to do or make. He was very clever to give us such gifts and talents. I am not saying men don't have those talents as well, they do.
So let's get started on making these if you would like. I used "impeccable yarn". The reason is that it's the softest worsted yarn that I have found for these type of projects. It's so nice to the touch and very warm indeed. You can use any style or color, I personally like the variegated yarn because it gives you a nice design when you are finished. Plus it adds so much color without having to change colors. I made these using only 1 skein of yarn too, so they are fairly inexpensive to make. Have fun, and if you see a boo-boo in the instructions do drop me a line so I can correct the issue. Thank you so much and go for it.
Things to gather for this project.....
You will need:
- (1) Skein Impeccable Soft Worsted 100% acrylic yarn or yarn of choice
- Size "H" Crochet Hook
- Plastic sewing needle
This pattern is for ages 5 - 10 years of age
Stitches used: Chain
DC = double crochet
Chain 18, dc in 2nd chain from hook, dc across (16 dc made). *Chain 2 turn, dc in next chain and in each chain across* Repeat this pattern until the piece measures 47" in length and it will be approximately 4" in width - depending on the tightness or looseness of your crochet technique.
Chain 27, dc in 2nd chain from hook. DC in each chain across (25 dc made).
*Chain 2 turn dc in next dc and in each dc across, chain 2 then turn.*
Repeat this pattern until you have 10 rows or 5" in length. Now sew up the sides with the plastic needle leaving a 1" hole for thumb. Tie off and weave any remaining ends into work.
Tip: Leave a nice long end of yarn at the beginning so that you can use this to sew up the sides of the wrist warmers.
These make great gifts for young girls and depending on the color of yarn or type of yarn they each are unique in their own right. Have fun and pass this pattern along to all your crocheting friends out there on the web!!!
