Stronger Together Earwarmer Crochet Pattern

It’s time for another Holiday Stashdown pattern! I’m so excited for this one. It is called the Stronger Together Earwarmer and came about as I was working on a pattern for the 2016 Cancer Challenge hosted by Sweet Potato 3. You will be able to get that pattern on the 26th when I release it for the challenge. There are also going to be boot cuffs and a cowl to coordinate with this coming soon and I am considering a set of fingerless gloves if I can get them to come out how I want them to! I hope you enjoy this pattern and get some good use out of this!

I am so excited to be hosting the Holiday Stashdown CAL this month. My pattern this month is for the Mermaid Dreams Boot Cuffs. It is the perfect accompaniment to the Mermaid Dreams Wristers. I used some wonderful yarn from Premier Yarns, the Deborah Norville Serenity Garden in the Gems colorway. This yarn is a great alternative to the hand-dyed yarn I used from Butterfly Dreams with its long color changes and vibrant colors. There are several great colorways for this yarn.

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.

Swirling Leaves Stitch Tutorial

I have several patterns that use the Swirling Leaves stitch. It is one that I keep going back to because I thoroughly enjoy it! Sometimes when first doing the stitch, I have had people get confused so I decided to give a stitch tutorial! I don’t yet have the capability to do a video tutorial but am always willing to answer questions so if the photos don’t work for you, let me know and I will try to help in whatever way I can! So I am giving you a Swirling Leaves stitch tutorial.
