Crochet Tutorial: Princess Costume Gloves

Crochet Tutorial: Princess Costume Gloves

Pieces of my Halloween costume creation are coming together! I finished the Princess Costume Glove Armlets. These are the next installment into my exciting cosplay ensemble that I will be sharing at the end of this creative journey. If you are interested in making these armlets, scroll down to see the video tutorial and written pattern. Keep in mind, you can change the color for any princess costume or even for personal use! I also give tips on how to adjust the size in the Notes section!

-Your foundation chain should be in multiples of 6 so you can make these as small or large as you want.
-The sleeves I made are 15 inches long but you can make them as long or short as you want.
-The top of my sleeves are 10 inches around, but you can increase the sizes around the top of the sleeves by chaining an amount that is in the multiple of 6 that measures as long as the circumference of your upper arm.

Oh, my hands hurt!

If you crochet as much as I do, there are going to be days that you push those hand and wrist muscles to their limits! Combine that with the fact that I have auto-immune issues including swollen joints from arthritis, there will be days when I wake up and my hands hardly function.

Today is one of those days.

Even typing this blog has forced me to take breaks because the muscle in my hand going into my wrist is causing a lot of discomfort. That discomfort is impairing my ability to do what I love!

Have you experienced something similar? 

From time to time, I switch using a standard crochet hook to using an ergonomic handled hook to alleviate some of the tension and pressure in my wrist. There are points in time where even that doesn’t do enough to help my issue. After talking to my best friend, Nida, about my concerns, she sent me a pair of these fabulous gloves by Copper Joint.

Nida works in the medical field, so I trust her guidance and I decided to give these a try. I wasn’t disappointed. Although my pain can be far beyond the scope of what most things can help, these Copper Joint Gloves have been a crochet life-saver! Today I’ll be wearing them throughout the day as I work on my latest designs.

I know that I’m not alone in this experience, so I ask you, my YARNutopians to share with me your methods of finding relief for your tired and aching joints! Maybe your technique will help others who suffer the laborious tasks of chronic crochet syndrome! 😉


On a serious note, this truly is an issue that many can relate to. I’m looking forward to hearing your suggestions!

You can get the same gloves that Nida gave me by clicking here!

Crochet Tutorial: Cat Paw Hand Warmers with Fur

Bring out your inner “cat-titude” and freak “meowt!” This is the “purrrr-fect” project to make that happen! I am “paws-itive” you will be “feline” “claw-some!!”

As I work my way toward Halloween and my own personal costume, I created these paw fingerless gloves as a piece to one of my best costumes yet! This time of the year always gets my creativity going for fun ideas on ways to economically make a costume with as little as a hook and yarn. Although I made these as part of my Halloween attire, this would be a great project for any animal lover. You can modify these in many ways by changing the color, paw pads and fur! You don’t even need to put the paw prints on them and just have fancy fingerless gloves to give as a gift for anyone on your list!

Again, this is a quick and easy afternoon project! This blog includes the instructional video as well as a handwritten pattern. Be sure to check out the entire blog and make your mitts today!

I’m sure that you will “a-purrr-ove” of “e-furry-thing!” HA!
