Seed Stitch Wrist Warmers

Seed Stitch Wrist Warmers

I always loved the wrist warmers people wore on TV, and they inspired me to create this pattern. The seed stitch wrist warmers are knitted from the top down, NOT side to side. When finishing the project, make sure to match up the two longer sides rather than the two short ends.

-1 skein of yarn (I used worsted weight)
-Size #8 knitting needles

-Tape measure or ruler

-Crochet hook or darning needle


Pattern (Make 2)
Cast on 24 st.
Row 1: k1, p1 until end of row

Row 2: p1, k1 until end of row

Repeat these two patterns until piece measures 7 in.

Cast off.

Fold over the knitted piece matching up the two longer sides. Using a crochet hook or darning needle, sew the edge, leaving a 1 1/2 in. hole 1 1/2 in. from the one end. Do the same with the second piece and weave in ends. Enjoy!


  1. After more than 40 years away from knitting, I am getting back into the craft and taking some lessons. We talked about the seed stitch and hand/wrist warmers last week, so this pattern will work for me just fine. Thanks so very much. Janet

  2. I'm just starting to make these for myself!

  3. Just finished mine, only two days to complete. I love them!! Thanks for the super easy pattern. Mine are made from Lion Brand Homespun yarn in a multicolor blue/indigo. Lovely.

  4. Just made a second pair for my sister, gray and white wool. So nice and cozy!!
