Hip To Be Square Wrist Warmers – Free Crochet Pattern

"Hip to Be Square" Wrist Warmers - Free Crochet Pattern

Love making granny squares but don’t know what to do with them? I’ve got a quick project to share that will have you turning your squares into a fun accessory – fingerless gloves! You can use the pattern below for your square, or any square of your choosing that measures 4″ (or very close to it).

By seaming two squares together, then folding and seaming them together again (this time leaving a hole for the thumb), we have the base of our wrist warmers. From there, we’ll be crocheting along the bottom to elongate the wrist section. After completing that, we’ll crochet along the top portion of the glove for a flawless finish.

Improve Your Crochet: Essential Techniques

For fun color changes without the hassle of weaving in (extra) tails, try a self striping yarn. You can also change colors with each round if you are feeling ambitious, and, if not, a solid color glove will still look fabulous. For anyone who needs a refresher on how to crochet a granny square, I have a video for you here: Granny Square Crochet Video Tutorial The full written pattern is below for you though, complete with a few photos for clarification.
