That said, they’re good looking enough any experienced crocheter would be happy to wear them!
- Beginner’s Wrist Warmers with Ridges by Rachel Choi, on Crochet Spot: Another great beginner pattern that looks good too! This pair is worked a little differently – as a flat rectangle, side to side. The end product is super warm and cozy, and a very different look from the above.
