It’s another day & another opportunity to share a FREE crochet pattern, the crochet Delicatus Wrist-Warmers.
To crochet wrist warmers are super easy & can be made with any crochet stitch.
What I love about these wrist warmers is the fact that they show of the broomstick lace stitch beautifully!
This stitch requires that you use both a crochet hook & yarn, as well as a “broomstick”. That can be anything really, but for this specific pattern I’ve used a 15 mm knitting needle.

To crochet this pattern I used 100 % Alpaca yarn.
The reason behind my choice this time around was honestly the fact that I had some scrap yarn in my yarn stash. Using thin yarn for this project makes them easy & light to wear.
The thin yarn also makes the broomstick lace stitch look amazing.
THE PERFECT TRY A NEW STITCH CROCHET PROJECT
Behind this crochet pattern you won’t find a big design idea, but a cute one.
It’s made with the purpose of letting you try a completely new crochet stitch, without having to embark on a big, time consuming crochet project.
There’s no complex increases or decreases on this pattern, just crocheting back & forth in rows.
Since you like the Delicatus Wrist-Warmers, these might interest you too?
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.
