This pattern uses worsted weight yarn and a size 4mm crochet hook.

The pattern will work as written if you have a 5.5-6.5 inch wrist and a thumb circumference of 2-3 inches. For a 6.5 or 7.5 inch wrist, go up a hook size (4.5 mm) or for a larger wrist you can even go up to a 5mm crochet hook. Gauge is 3.25 hdc stitches to an inch when working in the round.

There is a video detailing how I crochet this. I hope it will help clarify any confusing steps! It can be seen here.

You will need:

  • 100ish yards of worsted weight yarn. (I had a lot left over)

  • Size 4 mm crochet hook (or larger/smaller depending on ankle)

  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends.

  • A arm to put the finished item on.
