Wrist warmers crochet pattern

Need a last-minute handmade stocking filler? Set aside a couple of hours this weekend and you could be wrapping a pair of crochet wrist warmers for someone to snuggle their paws into. These wrist warmers by Hannah Cross of HanJan Crochet comes with pretty bows to top them off – so kawaii! If you’re making a pair of mitts for him though, simply fasten off and weave in the ends before you reach the scalloped trim part of the pattern.
