Pink HandWarmers

This pattern was a special request from one of my deviantART friends.   I designed these quite some time ago for my 15 year old daughter,  well I designed about a dozen different hand warmers for her,  since she wears them all the time so I have many patterns for these.

I like wearing hand warmers too,  I have severe rheumatoid arthritis and the added warmth from wearing these (especially when I'm sleeping)  keeps my hands from getting as stiff or sore.... Now if I could just figure out a way to make a 'hip warmer' for my left hip  LOL


Hand Warmers

These hand warmers fit a small adult or teenager's hand.  You can increase the overall size by increasing the number of rows at the wrist/cuff.  Then simply follow the pattern (adding the appropriate number of stitches to the ( ) at the end of each row.

For instance,  if you increase the wrist/cuff size by 2 rows,  then the number of stitches at the beginning of the 'hand' portion will increase by two,  the total number of stitches in the increase rows will increase by two.

After making a few of these,  you get a good feeling for the pattern's 'theory'  and can easily increase or decrease the sizes as you need them.

Using a G hook and your favorite WW yarn :

Wrist/Cuff

Row 1:  ch 6,  sc in 2nd ch from hook and remaining chs,  (5)
Row 2,  working in back loops only,  sc in each sc across  (5)
Row 3-28:  repeat row 2  (5)
Do not fasten off.  Bring both ends of the cuff together and slip stitch carefully to end of the row.  Turn and work 28 sc evenly around the cuff,  (one sc in the end of each row),  join the round to the first sc

You now have a 'ring'  with a total of 28 sc topping of your ribbed cuff.  You will need to join your rounds with a slip stitch in the first sc of each round,  then Ch 1 to begin next round

Right hand warmer:

Rnd 1:  sc in same sc as join and each sc around  (28)
Rnd 2:  sc in same sc as join,  2 sc in next sc,  sc in each sc around to last 2 sc,   2 sc in next to last sc, and sc in last sc of round,  join and ch 1  (30)
Rnd 3:  repeat round 1  (30)
Rnd 4:  repeat round 2  (32)
Rnd 5-11:  repeat round 1  (32)
Rnd 12:  sc in next 22 sc,  ch 4,  skip 8 sc,  sc in last 2 sc  (24 sc,  4 ch )
Rnd 13:  sc in each sc and each ch around,  (28)
Rnd 14:  sc in each sc around (28)
Rnd 15:  sc in first sc, * ch 2,  skip one sc,  sc in next sc *,  repeat from * to *  around,  end with ch2 and slip stitch in first sc.
Rnd 16:  slip stitch to ch 1 sp.    ch 3,  slip stitch in next ch 1 sp,  * ch 2,  slip stitch in  next ch 1 sp *, repeat from * to * 1 more time.    Try on the hand warmer  (make sure you put it on the right hand)  look and see where the 'finger loop' will need to be  (it's different for each person),  mark that sp,  and continue around  as before  to marked space,  sc in that space,  ch 11,  sc in same space,  ch 2 and continue to end of round,  end with ch 2 and slip stitch in first slip stitch.
F/O and weave in ends.

Left hand warmer:

Work cuff as above.

Rnd 1:  sc in same sc as join and each sc around  (28)
Rnd 2:  sc in same sc as join,  2 sc in next sc,  sc in each sc around to last 2 sc,   2 sc in next to last sc, and sc in last sc of round,  join and ch 1  (30)
Rnd 3:  repeat round 1  (30)
Rnd 4:  repeat round 2  (32)
Rnd 5-11:  repeat round 1  (32)
Rnd 12:  sc in next 2 sc,  ch 4,  skip 8 sc,  sc in last 22 sc  (24 sc,  4 ch )
Rnd 13:  sc in each sc and each ch around,  (28)
Rnd 14:  sc in each sc around (28)
Rnd 15:  sc in first sc, * ch 2,  skip one sc,  sc in next sc *,  repeat from * to *  around,  end with ch2 and slip stitch in first sc.
Rnd 16:  slip stitch to ch 1 sp.    ch 3,  slip stitch in next ch 1 sp,  * ch 2,  slip stitch in  next ch 1 sp *, repeat from * to * 1 more time.    Try on the hand warmer  (make sure you put it on the left hand)  look and see where the 'finger loop' will need to be  (it's different for each person),  mark that sp,  and continue around  as before  to marked space,  sc in that space,  ch 11,  sc in same space,  ch 2 and continue to end of round,  end with ch 2 and slip stitch in first slip stitch.
F/O and weave in ends.

This is a sily question, but did you use G(4.0mm) or G(4.5mm) hook? I know that it might not matter much, but I just want to be sure. Thanks.

WolfDreamer said...

It's not a silly question at all. However, I dont know the answer. Those hand warmers were made with a Boye hook in size G, it doesn't give the MM sizing on it.

I have since then switched to a Susan Bates G hook, but all they say is size '6 or G'.

Hope that helps, even if it didn't exactly answer your question :)

Mtlr1313 said...

It actually helps, the Boye G hook is a 4.25 mm, just in case so other person ask you this question hehe. I guess I could use either one of the two since 4.25 it's in the middle he

When you said hipwarmer, the first thought that came to mind was a small satchel over your shoulder with a hot water bottle in it, haha...

Those are really nifty, looks like they're great for fall or spring!

WolfDreamer said...

Thanks! (and I've thought about that hot water bottle thing a few times LOL)

TheHMC said...

I like those!
And, um, hello! How do you keep crocheting with arthritis? I've always worried that it would be the end of crocheting and cross-stitch for me if that happened. It's nice to see that you're able to still do what you love despite having arthritis. Rock on, ma lady! That's awesome.

Thank you for a lovely pattern! It was easily understood and I really love the finished product. I blogged about it here: http://seaschell.blogspot.com/2010/04/fingerless-gloves.html

are those alice cullen gloves

WolfDreamer said...

Hmm, no. I designed and made those particular gloves long before any Twighlight stuff came out. LOL

I have read that some of the characters in that show wear 'knit and crochet' items, which is probably helping the crafts gain popularity with younger people, and I won't complain about that! But those particular gloves, No - they aren't 'Alice Cullen' gloves :D

Hi,

Love these! Just made some, had to make them bigger as even though my hands are small they are bigger than a childs.

Quick to make, and lovely.

Thank you for the pattern

Karen

These are awesome for me. I have to take my gloves off to play clarinet and now i dont :)

Madi said...

You might be my hero. Do you watch Avatar the last Airbender? Cause I feel you could do great things.

I would like to find a pattern for a raichu hat for my 10 year old. Have you done hats or know where to find them?

Anonymous said...

Thank you for this beautiful pattern! My gloves seemed to end up with less lace work than those shown in the picture. Are the pictured gloves made with an alteration to the pattern? Thanks!!

WolfDreamer said...

The ones in the picture are made to the pattern. Different types/brands of yarns will act differently - as will different brands of hooks and as always, your individual tension while crocheting.

If your lace isn't showing up like you like, you can always repeat rounds 15 once or twice more (but you may need to shorten the 'finger ring' in round 16 to accommodate the added lace rounds) :D

Awesome! Thank you so much for your help! :)

would you be so kind to post other arm warmers patterns? I'm looking for a fingerless one (the type that only covers part of the fingers) and since you said you have designed many arm warmers, maybe you could post more patterns. thanks

thepokefreak said...

is there a pokemon fingerless gloves variation like the ones ash wears in the cartoon?
