Free Wrist Cuff Crochet Pattern

Just Clownin' Around Wrist Cuffs

Free Crochet Pattern with photo illustrations!

With Halloween just around the corner, I was inspired to create a pattern that could be a fun addition to a costume. But these wrist cuffs do not have to be isolated to Halloween or costume wear, they will make a nice addition to your outside winter wear on a cold day (and where I live it's not uncommon to need warm outside winter wear by Halloween).

I offer you this free pattern in 3 different ways. You can scroll through this post to read the written instructions as well as view comprehensive slide show photo illustrations at various points along the way. If you don't like sitting in front of a computer screen to work your pattern and you don't want the illustrations, just scroll down to the bottom of the post to find a PDF printable/downloadable version of the pattern; and if you still want the added help of the photos you can download or print a copy of the pattern with those too.


Pattern Instructions are written for Small and in red print, instructions for Large are written in the brackets and in blue print: S (L).

Join with slip stitch unless otherwise indicated.

Chain-1 at beginning of rows does not count as a stitch.

Pattern instructions are written for Small and in red print with the instructions for Large inside the bracket and in blue print. All black print instructions are for both sizes.

When changing color, switch to new color on the last yarn over on the last stitch to be worked in current color:

When working in end of rows, work indicated stitches around the post of the double crochet on the end of the row.
