These Ridged Wrist Warmers work up super quickly using our bulky Snuggle yarn.  One of my favorite yarns for teaching, because learning something new can be challenging, and gratification that comes more quickly is sometimes the motivation we need to hang in there and get past that learning curve that we have to push through.  The color I chose is called Majestic, a fitting name for this deep, beautiful shade.  This yarn is a blend of 55% alpaca, 30% wool, 15% acrylic and comes in a number of great colors, as well as multi-colors.

The first round of this pattern calls for a chainless Foundation Half Double Crochet stitch. It’s a technique I really like as it creates your stitch and chain at the same time.  It seems faster to me, and produces a foundation row that is sized similarly to a regular row.  This method eliminates the chain altogether and makes your foundation row and the rest of the rows and stitches in your project more evenly aligned.

How to Crochet the Foundation Half Double Crochet:

Ch 3, yarn over, insert hook in 3rd chain from hook, yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through 1 loop (1 chain made), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook—1 foundation half double crochet. *Yarn over, insert hook under the 2 loops of the “chain” stitch of last stitch and pull up loop, yarn over and draw through 1 loop, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook; repeat from * for length of foundation.  Check out the Moogly website for a good tutorial and video that are quite helpful.
