These wristlets are a super-quick project and they will give you an excuse to practice your Broomstick Lace. You won’t have to make much of it, just a row. But that single row, especially in a nice contrasting color adds a little special something.

I just have to confess that a very charming cattle rancher old enough to be my father talked me out of these wristlets the very first day I wore them. He took one look at them and said they’d be the perfect thing to protect his wrists (inside his work gloves) when he was out working. I told him if he could fit these little things over his hands I’d let him have them. Well they did and he wore them around the Barnes and Nobel and then right out the door! So I have to make myself another pair, lol. I think I’ll try a self-stripping yarn next and see how they turn out.

These are worked flat and then seamed. I used a mattress stitch for the seaming and it turned out well. I stitched the gray sections with gray tails and the purple stripe with the purple yarn tail. HTH! And check out our other free patterns. You might find something else you like.
