First of all, let me start off by saying that I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of making my own cotton rounds so please know that I know that I’m not being totally original when I post this pattern but I really wanted to share with you how I make these. Not only are they quick and simple but most crocheters, loomers, and knitters have some cotton yarn in their stash so it’s a inexpensive way to do something green.
Yesterday was the busiest day EVER on this blog. Everyone seems to be looking at my patterns so I’m assuming that you too have been hit with requests from your friends, family, and co-workers and are searching for project ideas for the gift giving season.

- Loom Knitting Pattern Central
- Loom Knitting Circle Magazine
- Hooked on Loom Knitting
- The Purling Sprite Blog

I was inspired by several wrist warmers (aka fingerless mittens) and I really wanted a pair for myself but after several attempts I couldn’t find a pattern that was exactly what I was looking for. Here’s what I came up with to satisfy my craving to create a pair of these bad boys for myself. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as me. 🙂 Continue reading
