Free Crochet Pattern: Tunisian Wrist Warmers

By Rachel Choi – 7 Comments
I made these wrist warmers to practice changing colors in Tunisian crochet. Changing colors in crochet is really easy and the same principles still hold when you change colors in Tunisian. I really like the way the colors look especially when you use 3 colors. The best thing about using 3 colors is that when you go to change the color the next color is waiting right there for you, no carrying yarn required! tunisian crochet wristwarmers

    I love the way this looks!
    I’m working on making one in a solid color to get the hang of doing tunisian stitches, then I’ll probably do one in several colors :)
    It looks wicked cool in the different colors too, so I can’t wait to get one finished

    Hi Rachel! I’m making a cardholder (21 stitches long) using your Tunisian colour-change method. I’m only at row 3 but it is curling in quite badly (longitudinally). Is there something I have done wrong or is this normal? Hmm I have many more rows to go, could you advice how I could fix this? : ) Thank you – I love your site!

    I am having a hard time fitting all of my stitches on one needle because crochet needles are so much shorter than knitting needles. Does this mean I can only do small projects with this stitch. I’d love to be able to do a cowl but I honestly cannot figure out how I’d go about doing it.

      Hi Gianna, there are Tunisian crochet hooks made just for Tunisian crochet! They are much longer than regular hooks so that they can hold a bunch of stitches. You should be able to find them in any major craft store or online.
