You can make this for any size person, just measure your wrist and make the ribbing that big plus 4cm.


  1. Make a Slip Knot. Crochet 27 Chain Stitches.
  2. Row 1Then take your crochet hook and push it into the  second chain from your hook. Now Single Crochet until the end of the row. Crochet only through the front loop.
  3. Row 2 - 30 Chain 2 then push your crochet hook into the second last single crochet. Continue to make single crochets until the end of the row. Crochet only through the front loop.

  4. You can make the wrist wider by adding a few more rows of single crochets.
  5. When you've made as many rows as you need, Slip Stitch them together, then turn it inside out.

  1. Row 1 Chain 1, then Single Crochet evenly around the side of the cuff. Join with a slip stitch.

  2. Row 2, 3, 4 Chain 3, then crochet a Bullion Stitch into the next stitch. *Chain 1, skip one stitch and crochet a bullion stitch into the following stitch. Repeat from the * all around. Join with a slip stitch into the top of chain 3.
  3. Row 5 This is where you add the hole for your thumb. For each person it's different, so you need to decide now where you want your thumb to be. When you get there make a bullion stitch, then crochet 5 chain stitches (might need to make it 6-7 if you have a bigger thumb) Skip one stitch, then crochet a bullion stitch in that stitch. Continue making bullion stitches and chains all the way around.

  4. Row 6 Same as row 2, but when you get to where you chained 5 for the thumb hole, only make one bullion stitch into that gap. Otherwise you'll have a very bulky and uneven hand.
  5. Row 7, 8 Same as row 2.
  6. Row 9, 10 Single crochets all the way around.
  7. Fasten off, and you are done!

I am not sure if this is UK terms -- I don't believe single crochet is used in UK. Their double is our single. So if these are single -- are they US single?

Is this in U.K. or American terms? Tk u. Love the pattern. What yarn did u use? Looks great!

Hello, this is in U.K. (metric) terms. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

It would be nice if a "Bullion Stitch" was explained. I've never heard of it.

Explanation of Bullion stitch: http://crochet.about.com/od/learnmorestitc == hes/a/bullion.htm Video tutorial for Bullion stitch: http://youtu.be/iqIvn3LKEVA and an easier way: http://youtu.be/EWCTA8v_zko Remember to work VERY LOOSELY so that the hook can pass through all those loops.

A "Bullion" stitch is the same as a "Roll" stitch. I found the instructions for it on About.com. Essentially, it is where you wrap the thread/yarn around the hook/needle so many times (usually 10), pull a loop through the main part (like a single crochet start), draw over and pull through all loops on the hook/needle. The exact wording from the site is "Wind thread around the hook smoothly 10 times (or as many times as called for in your directions) insert hook in work, wrap thread over hook and draw a loop through, wrap over hook again and draw carefully through the coil of all the loops on the hook, (you may find it necessary to pick the loops off the hook with your fingers, one at a time, while getting used to this stitch), wrap thread over hook again and draw through the remaining stitch. The length of the roll stitch (bullion stitch) is determined by the number of wraps around the hook." http//crochet.about.com/od/learnmorestitch == es/a/bullion.htm It says that it is for advanced crocheters. And it is an antique stitch not used very often. Good luck, Everyone!
