Market Wristlet

Hey friends! This post will contain affiliate links that benefit me when a purchase is made, thank you for supporting more free content!



Welcome again friends. It's really and truly, finally springtime! I love transitioning from cold weather accessories to spring/summer home and personal accessories. With that in mind, I know I've promised you a sequel (specifically a cowl) to match the very popular Sadie Boot Cuffs, but you're just going to have to wait until fall. It's too beautiful out now to pull out a warm and cozy cowl pattern. Sorry! But Don't fret, I have lots of beautiful goodies lined up for your summer hookin' fun.

I have been wanting to make a wristlet for a while now. One evening this past winter, I gave myself permission to just start crocheting without any plan or design in mind and see what would come of it. What I conceived was something I originally wanted to call the "Lemon Drop Wristlet" I envisioned it in gray and yellow. I named it that because at the time I was experimenting with textured crochet stitches and was using the Lemon Peel stitch.



Working off my first concept, I changed the pattern slightly to showcase my own textured stitch featured in the Market Coin Purse. I decided then, that it couldn't be called the Lemon Drop, because even though I finally saw it in its intended color scheme, it just wouldn't be right. I needed it to match it's little sister. And who knows, there may be another friend added to the Market stitch accessory collection. Anything is possible!



What I've come to call the "market stitch" is a combination of stitches that creates a unique textured pattern. It is worked by alternating skipped stitches with (sc, hdc) together in the next st. I turn the rows (even when working in the round!) to create a really stunning textile that I hope you will love too!


You could make this wristlet as a clutch, omitting the strap. You could also choose your own colors, or even make it in one solid color. The choice is yours. Let's get started together!

Market Wristlet 

Free Crochet Pattern


Hook: H8/5mm
Yarn: medium 4 (worsted) weight, Walmart Mainstays Yarn in Soft Gray Heather (color A) and Red Heart Super Saver in Lemon (color B)
Gauge: 8 rows, 8 sts = 2” square in sc
Difficulty: easy
Materials: two 1” buttons, tapestry needle
Finished Size: 5.5” across, 4” high, apx. 9” strap




Special Stitches:

(sc, hdc)- sc and hdc together in the same stitch, a textured stitch.
Sc2tog- single crochet two together, a reduction stitch.
Fhdc- foundation half double crochet, a chainless foundation stitch.

Notes: 

  1. Wristlet is worked in the round, starting by working both sides of the starting chain. Form starting chain, and work sc’s into back bump of starting chain, continuing around and back up the other side of the starting chain, so that you end up with v’s on both sides of the foundation round to work in. 
  2. When joining rounds, pull joining sl st tight, ch 1, and then work first sc of next round in same st as join (join st = first st of round), textured rounds will sk first st and begin textured pattern in second st. This will keep all the joins aligned vertically along one edge of the wristlet.
  3. Textured rounds are turned, be sure you are working the texture st in the sc of the previous round. 
  4. Rounds transition to gradually reducing rows to form closure flap with buttonholes.
