Trinity Stitch Wristers ~ FREE PATTERN

Materials:

*One Skein worsted weight yarn (or two colors if you are doing contrasting cuffs like I did)
*I hook and K hook
*large eye needle for weaving in ends
*scissors
*A smileeeeeeeeee :)

Stitch Explanation:

Trinity Stitch: sc in first sc, insert hook in same sc and draw up a loop. Insert hook in next st and draw up another loop (3 loops on hook). Insert hook in the very next st draw up another loop. (4 st on hook) Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook. Chain 1.

Lets get started and have some fun :)

With main color and I hook begin cuff by leaving a very long tail (18 inches or more for sewing later) and chain 9














*Im going to be very detailed on numbering the stitches in the photos as my counting may be different from yours*



Turn your work and sc in the BACK LOOPS ONLY beginning in the 2nd st from the hook all the way across to the final st

On the final st of the first back loops only rib row I personally go into the two loops of the stitch below. This gives the rows a more pulled together neater appearance. However if you have another method please feel free to use it.






















Change to your K hook here for the body :)



Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on the hook




Row 2:  Chain 1 and turn. Sc in first sc,  *insert hook in same sc and draw up a loop. Insert hook in next st and draw up another loop (3 loops on hook). Insert hook in the very next st draw up another loop. (4 st on hook) Yarn over and draw through all 4 loops on hook. Chain 1.* repeat across row. Sc in same ch as last st. 

Complete 12 rows of the trinity stitch and tie off leaving a 18 inch tail for sewing.

Finishing:
Using your yarn needle and your long tail at the bottom, sew up seam to your 2nd row of the trinity st nearest to the cuff very securely fasten off and weave ends in well. Using the long tail that was left at the top of the body and your yarn needle, sew together the seam going toward the cuff for about 3 trinity st rows. Secure and weave in ends. *of course try wrister on and adjust opening for your thumb as you see fit*

Yeah! Youre finished with your super easy peasy wristers :)

Thank you so much for trying out this pattern and if you liked it, I hope you give the other items in the Trinity set a go :)

  2. I'm confused too... It looks like you loose stitches as you work up? Can you maybe explain row 2 of the trinity stitch so we can see how/if it doesn't decrease.
