Free Crochet Pattern: Swirling Leaves Wristlet

This post may contain affilate links. If you click through, any purchase made gives me a small percentage. This allows me to continue to provide great content and free patterns!

As many of you know by now, I have teamed up with 14 other AMAZING designers for the #HolidayStashdownCAL2015. This week is my pattern. Since I wasn’t sure what everyone would have in their stashes, I decided to give y’all options! Either option uses less than a single skein of yarn. The fine weight version uses about 75 yards total or the medium weight version uses just over 100 yards total. I made my sample version of the fine one with two colors and I cannot wait to see all of your creativity in making these! So, I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern for the Swirling Leaves Wristlet.

The beginning chs count as the first dc and ch sp. So a ch 6 is a dc and ch 3, a ch 4 is a dc and ch 1.

Make sure you are turning each round in the cluster rounds. Occasionally count your clusters to make sure you aren’t dropping a cluster.
