Free Pattern: Seamless Wristwarmers

Seamless Wristwarmers

Approximately 3 oz. worsted weight yarn
J hook or hook needed to obtain gauge

Gauge: 2" = 6 st and 4 rows in dc
Note: I am a tension freak. I usually have to go up 2 hook sizes on commercial patterns. If you are an "average" tension you will want an H hook.

Size: Men's small or women's medium. These have a little bit of wrist shaping to help them stay up. For a larger size just chain until long enough to fit around the wearer's forearm.


Ch 26, join with slst in first ch, taking care not to twist.

Round 1: ch 2 (does not count as st throughout), dc in same ch and each ch around, join. (26 dc)

Round 2-4: ch 2, dc in same st and each st around, join. (26 dc)

Round 5-6: ch 2, dc in same st, dc dec, dc in each st, join. (24 dc)

Round 7-9: ch 2, dc in same st and each st around, join.

Round 10-13 (thumbhole rows): ch 2, dc in each st around, do not join, turn.

Round 14: ch 2, dc in same st, 2 dc in next st, dc in next 20 st, 2 dc in next st, dc in remaining st, join with sl st to first dc. (26 dc)

Round 15: ch 2, dc in same st, dc in next 11 st, 2 dc in next st, dc in remaining st, join. (27 dc)

Round 16: ch 1, sc in same st and all st around, join, finish off.

Repeat for second glove.

  1. I made these for a friend with a chunky-style yarn, and I wasn't sure at first how they would turn out, but when she tried them on, they fit perfectly. It was a really easy pattern to follow, and they turned out great. Thanks for the pattern, I think I shall use it again. :)

  2. Just a question, but for round 15, do you mean dc in next 21 st? It says 11 but that doesn't add up to 27 st. I think the pattern is fabulous and once I found it last night, sat down and made a pair for my daughter-in-law in no time. Thanks for the last minute stocking stuffer and clarififcation. Merry Christmas!

  3. On round 15 I have one dc increase. So you dc in the 11 stitches, do an increase (2dc) in the next stitch, then continue around with 1 dc in each stitch. The count isn't really important at that point, I just found that one more increase on the side away from the thumb accommodated the knuckles a little better.

    Glad you like the pattern! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  4. Thank You, it makes a lot more sense now- It was 1:30 in the morning and the eyes and brain were a little fuzzy! She opened them today and absolutely LOVED them, now the other girls want some!

  5. Thank you so much for this pattern. I got both of the gloves done in one night!
