Free Pattern: Love Is Love Wrist Warmers

By special request from my 12-year-old, I made them a few rainbow wristbands to wear to a small Pride celebration at a friend's house. We are not celebrating Pride with big parades and parties this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however that does not mean Pride month goes by unnoticed.


The following patterns are free. However any donations made as pattern support to my Ko-Fi will be donated in full to The Trevor Project.




What you need:

Yarn: Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio DK Minis - Pride Rainbow Set

Needles- Size 4 US DPN or circulars (if you prefer magic loop)

Stitch marker

Darning needle


The pattern is in two sizes: child/adult. To increase or decrease the size of the wrist warmer add or remove stitches in multiples of 4.


Pattern 1: Love is Love long version (shown at the bottom in the picture above)

  • Cast on 32/40, I used the long tail method. Join the round being careful not to twist, place stitch marker to mark the start of the round
