Lace Woolen Warmers - free crochet pattern


Hello crochet friends! Today I am sharing a wonderfully easy pattern for lace cuffs / wrist warmers that is the best weekend project. Not to mention that it presents a lovely handmade gift for the upcoming holidays!

Please note that: The written  pattern in its entirety along with the photos are for personal use only. All property rights belong to Maya Kuzman of The Little Treasures. You can sell finished items from this pattern.

What you need

Yarn and hook: 100 gr of Austermann’s Soufle – bulky virgin wool yarn and a 4.5 mm (US G, UK 7) Yarn meterage: 140 meters per 100 gr. (144 yards).

Other: Tapestry needle for sewing the warmers together.

Stitches: chain (ch), chain space (ch-sp), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc).  American terminology used.

Measurements of finished warmers: 9 cm / 3.54” at the wrist and 13 cm/5.11” at the top. Wrist circumference fit: 16-18 cm / 6.2” – 3.13”.

Lace Warmers Pattern:

Foundation and row 1: ch4 and dc2 in last st. from hook, ch2 and dc2 more in same st. 

Rows 2-9: Ch4 and turn work. Dc2 in ch-space below, ch2 and dc2 again in same ch-sp. We’ve worked this vertically. In row 10 we are going to work horizontally.Row 10:  Ch4 and in 1st ch-sp dc6. Dc6 in next ch-sp. Repeat this pattern 2 more times. There will be 4 such dc6 fans. Ch4 and turn work.  

Row 11: (the ch4 at the end of row 10 counts as 1dc +1 chain) dc1 in 2nd st and ch1. Dc1 in next st and ch1. Repeat this pattern 3 more times. You’ve filled (worked over the fan from below). Now repeat the same filling pattern, but do not chain 1 between two fans. As you worked the last (6th) dc in the first fan, start with 1dc+ch1 in the second fan (below). When done, ch3 and turn work.

Row 12: Not counting the 1st st., sk1 and dc1 in next st. Ch1, sk1 and dc1 in next st. Repeat this pattern twice more, next, ch1 and sc1 in next st. (one fan below covered/ filled). Next, sc1 in next st. (which is the 1st st of the second fan) ch1 and repeat the above pattern to the end. Do not forget to sc1 in last st, and the next st of the next fan. Ch5 and turn work.

Row 13: Skip 2 dcs and sc in ch-sp. Ch5, skip 2dcs and sc1 in-between the 2 single crochet stitches from the row below. Repeat this chaining pattern to the end where for the last chain, instead of ch5, ch2 and make 1dc in the last stitch (of the row below). 

Row 14: Ch5 and turn work. Sc that chain into 1st ch-sp. Ch5 and sc into next ch-sp. Repeat this pattern to the end. Sl st into last st. to end row.

Row 16: Ch3 turn work and sc in 1st ch-sp. Ch3 and sc again in same ch-sp. Ch3 and sc again in same ch-sp. Sc1 in next ch-sp, ch3 and sc again in that same ch-sp. Repeat this pattern 2 more times. Repeat this same pattern for all ch-spaces. Don’t forget to sc1 in next ch-sp before you do the chaining pattern. There should be three 3-chains in each chain space. When done, leave a long ending tail that you’ll use to sew the sides of the warmers together.

Thread a tapestry needle and turn the warmers with the face inside. Align sides and leaving the last row free, start sewing the sides together. When you come to the bottom of the warmers, and if your tail is long (as mine) use it to sew (again) upwards. That way this reinforced seam will not let go after continuous wear. When done, tie a knot and hide/ weave the rest of the tail. Turn warmer inside out and you are done. Now, make the second warmer.

I hope you have pleasurable time working on this project and if you have questions
