The Simba Wristers are designed to accompany the Simba Slouchy Hat and the Simba Scarf, but they’re super cute on their own, too.  This is a really easy fingerless glove pattern that you can whip up in no time – especially with this bulky yarn.  

As always, I’d love to see your photos if you make this and care to share. You can find me @simplethingscrochet on Instagram and Facebook.

If you’d like an ad-free, easily printable version of the pattern, you can help support my small business and purchase it for a small fee in my Etsy shop – SimpleThings byTia,  or in my Ravelry Store – Simple Things Crochet.

Skill Level:  Easy


Lion Brand Hometown in Hoboken Honey – 1 skein

Hook size N/9.00 mm


8 dc stitches and 4 dc rows = 4”


Length – 10”

Circumference at the largest part around the arm – 9 1/2” 


Ch – chain

Dc – double crochet 

Hdc – half double crochet

St, sts – stitch, stitches


1.  Beginning chains do not count as stitches.  Always make your first stitch in the very first stitch in the row. 

2.  The shape of the wristers is made by using dc stitches in half of the row, and hdc in the other half of the row.  This way it’s tighter around your wrist, and larger around your arm.  I alternate between a row using all hdc stitches, and a row using half dc and half hdc.  If you’d like to make them smaller, use more of the all hdc rows.  If you’d like to make them bigger, use more of the half and half rows.


Make two.

Chain 22

Row 1:  Dc in 2nd ch from hook and next 9 sts.  Hdc in next 10 sts.  20 sts

Row 2:  Turn, ch 2, hdc in first st and across row. 20 sts

Row 3:  Turn, ch 2, dc in first st and next 9 sts.  Hdc in next 10 sts.  20 sts

Rows 4 – 10:  Repeat pattern from rows 2 and 3.  You should end with the pattern in row 2.  Tie off and weave in ends.


Fold the fabric in half with the long sides together (wrong side out).  Sew up the seam to where you want your thumb hole.  Leave about 2 inches for the thumbhole and then finish sewing up the side.  For mine, I sewed up 6” from the bottom edge, left 2” for the thumbhole, then sewed 2” at the top.  Turn right side out.  Repeat with the other wrister.
