Crochet Christmas: Bobble Stitch Wristies

Last week Angie showed us how to bobble stitch.  Let’s put this stitch to good use in a pair of wristies that make the perfect stocking filler!

A little pair of wristies are perfect to have tucked in the pocket of a favourite coat, especially if you need your fingers free to use your phone, or you love an extra layer on top of your gloves!

I was really inspired by Angie’s Bobble Stitch tutorial last week and I thought that the cosy air-trapping bobbles would be a gorgeous textural addition to a pair of wrist warmers!  Crochet gives us wonderful opportunities to use colour AND texture – so I chose a yarn to add even more dimension to my bobbles.

Any chunky yarn will work with this pattern, but I fancied something different!  GGH Andania is a fabulous 100% alpaca yarn, that is great value too! It’s super warm and deliciously soft and its chunky weight makes for a super fast finish!

GGH Andania comes in 22 rich shades – I’m using Aubergine, 05, but you could match up your wristies with your lucky gift recipient’s favourite colour – I absolutely adore the Olivbraun (11), Fuschia (02) and Amethyst Lila (03) below!

To make up:  fold in half wrong sides together (bottom cuffs matching), sew up half way to where your thumb hole needs to be, fasten.  Leave a gap in the seam for your thumb, and sew to the top of the seam. Turn the right way out.

These fit an average sized adult hand – to size them for bigger or smaller hands, simply measure the wrist size and increase/decrease the number of chains at the start, and alter the number of bobble rows for length.  If you prefer, you can make these wristies up in aran weight yarn for children – calculate sizing by making a chain and seeing how many you need to fit around the child’s wrist – the bobble rows naturally expand on their own to allow the hand to fit.

A perfect quick-finish gift, make a few pairs of these gorgeous wristies this week and wrap them up ready to pop in a stocking or under the tree!
